The Alexander home was built in 1906 for a mining entrepreneur, it sits in the heart of the historic Old North End neighborhood.
The ballroom was designed by Thomas MacLaren and built in Boston, shipped on rail cars and reassembled in Colorado Springs. The focal point of this remarkable room is the rare Choralcelo, a two-keyborad, electric-mechanical instrument that produces organ and piano music. This Choralcelo is one of twelve instruments of its kind in America, and 1 of only 2 still in its original location. Below the ballroom is the men's quarters with floors made from original Van Briggle tile, a private fireplace and a billiards room. Upstairs boasts a women's quarters, with great views of Pikes Peak.
The foyer and great room are graced with Douglas fir wainscoting on the walls. A large fireplace (one of 7 in the home) is the centerpiece of the room constructed with a leather hood and silver metallic crest. The master suite is inclusive of a sitting room, 2 sleeping porches and room to create an incredible master bathroom/closet retreat.
Spacious bedrooms offer an abundance of light with views of the grand landscaping.
