Notes:
The original name of the estate was Elmarna, after the tree Kountze daughters, Eleanor, Mary, and Nancy. This Spanish style house and garden were planned by architects Merrill and Burnham Hoyt in 1923. The Kountze-Cannon garden is situated on twelve acres of wooded and landscaped country land in southwest Denver. The approach to the house includes a circular garden feature defined by a short manicured hedge and a variety of perennials. Two identical curved stucco staircases lead the visitor to the lily pond.
Persons associated with the property include: Harold Kountze (former owner, 1923); Ziegler (former owner, ?-1958); Merrill and Burnham Hoyt (architects, 1923-1925).
