Chase Custom Home is all about the neighborhood. Not just any neighborhood, but this one known as Cory-Merrill, sometimes referred to as South Bonnie Brae. The name is derived from the local schools: Cory Elementary and Merrill Middle School. Founded as a dry town in 1858 by citizens who objected to Denver proper’s saloons, the area was not fully fleshed out until post-WWII when local developer Les Tremblay built the eponymous Les Tremblay Small Houses for returning military personnel. The 600-sq. ft. single-story frame homes, some on double lots, became ripe for scraping as decades passed. Today, the tree-lined streets are home to growing families, retirees and singles—all people who share an affection for the convenience of Cory-Merrill (proximity to I-25 and parks) as well as the top-rated schools and the opportunity to find homes of every architectural style.
Fondness for this neighborhood is why Spencer Chase works exclusively in this area of Denver. It’s where he and his wife are raising their family. He’s not one of the developers who targets a section of town, builds it out and then bails. Instead Spencer Chase is here for the long run. That speaks to the quality of the custom homes he builds and to the fine reputation of Chase Custom Home has earned over the years.

Many home builders charge a fee based on what is known in the industry as “cost-plus,” which is basically a percentage of the project. Not Chase Custom Home. Spencer Chase firmly believes that “cost-plus” offers no incentive for the builder to contain costs; in fact just the opposite. That is why Chase Custom Home charges a pre-specified fee-for-service, one based on the time involved in the project as detailed in the Bid Book, and holds to that fee no matter what the circumstances. This fee is an incentive to finish the project exactly as planned, on time and on budget — and the fees charged by Chase Custom Home represent a significant savings compared to any other builder.
The hallmark of a Chase-built home is found in the details. Every nuance is specifically detailed and addressed. From the bones of stately architecture to the graphic flair that is design, each home offers unique aspects especially for the individual owner. From airy whitewashed walls to solid marble backsplash slabs, the overarching design intent Spencer Chase seeks in his custom built homes is that they appear to be legacy homes, homes that have been a part of the land for decades.
The number of panes in each window or absence thereof, the number of panels in each door and the number of fixtures in each bathroom are considered in the concept of the home to meet the owner’s requirements. Then the distribution of rooms through the household is carefully orchestrated and the materials curated to achieve the owner’s preferences from traditional to contemporary. How the owner will use the rooms of the home is as important as the size of a room. Today’s homes are more fluid and personalized than homes in the past. Fewer people work at a desk; more are inclined to peck away at a laptop or text from anywhere. Books are on tape, soap comes in refillable dispensers, washing machines are located near where dirty laundry happens vs. half a house away.
Residences built by Chase Custom Home are anything but standard. Soothing to luxurious, minimalist to glam, our homes appeal to those with distinguished taste. Our start-to-finish processes are set so high that few other developers even aspire to them. That means that buyers of Chase Custom Home luxury residences can claim an address that is inordinately perfected.
Forever homes are more special than intermediary stops along the way in life. A developer is your partner in that journey. Communication and competence are key. These are qualities that Spencer Chase and his team of pros own. Embrace the Chase… Chase Custom Home.
