Bailey House, Denver Colorado
The Bailey House, predominately Queen Anne architecture with a Longmont sandstone exterior, was completed in 1891. The interior was finished with a variety of hardwoods and included a porcelain bathtub. Lang was known for using the finest materials. It was reported to have cost $30,000 at the time.
Though it largely holds to Queen Anne style, Lang mixed in variety of other influences such as Italianate, Greek Revival, Romanesque and Chateauesque. He also included various hardwoods, such as butternut, oak, ash and maple to the décor. The Bailey House is the largest of Lang-designed houses of the time to have survived.
The Bailey House was listed on the national Register of Historic Places on September 18, 1978. It is now part of the Swallow Hill Historic District. It is now the home the Sawaya Law Firm.
