For Sale: Peek Inside a Rock Star’s Stunning Victorian Mansion in Denver
The house that 'How to Save a Life' bought: Take a looking inside the former home of The Fray's Isaac Slade, just listed for $3 million.
Pop-rock band The Fray formed in Denver in the early 2000s, and by 2005 had their first hit with 'Cable Car (Over My Head)' followed by 2006's 'How to Save a Life,' both of which were nominated for Grammys. They're total Colorado celebs, and you know that we love seeing inside the homes of the stars, because let's be real, they're never going to invite us over.
The Fray - Over My Head (Cable Car)
But what makes Slade's home eye candy is that it isn't a polished, modern mansion, but a completely-restored 1890 Victorian with a lot of its original charm and character. According to Colorado Homes & Lifestyle, the home was designed by William Lang in the late 1800s, but the 'authentic Victorian home was completely restored by the Slades, who took extra care at every turn, even reinforcing the entire underlying structures without compromising any of the original architecture.'
The four-bedroom three-bathroom home was listed in July by LIV Sotheby's International Realty. The historic house comes with a basement speakeasy, reading nook, several fireplaces, and clawfoot tubs, and you can see the piano where Fray hits were penned (though it probably doesn't come with the house).
