The last freestanding house in Lower Downtown is officially under new ownership.

Hidden behind an apartment building and a King Soopers, the place was built in 1890 for just about $800. (Read our feature on its history.)

This week, its longtime owners sold it to a real estate company in Vail for $1,338,698 — or about $1,777 per square foot.

No word yet on the buyers’ plans for the building. One of the sellers was under the impression it would be remodeled, but the building doesn’t have any historical protections that would stop a demolition. We’re waiting for comment.

The buyer is listed on the deed as 1905 Division Street LLC. The company’s address, as listed in state records, matches that of Solaris Residences.
