Wilbur S. Raymond House / The Marne (Castle Marne)

Denver County

Dating from 1890, the massive three-story residence was designed by noted Denver architect William Lang for investment banker William Raymond.  Clearly reflecting the eclecticism associated with Lang’s work, Late Victorian era architectural details include walls of rusticated stone, round arches, asymmetrical massing, elaborate cornices, a steeply pitched roof; and a prominent five-sided corner bay. 

Known as The Marne during the ownership of the Edwin Van Cise family from 1918 to 1938, they divided the house into apartments and added a wing in 1920.  Vacant and boarded up for much of the 1980s, the property opened as a bed and breakfast in 1989.
