El Chingon’s Former Home on Tennyson Street For Sale

Change is coming to the 4300 block of North Tennyson Street.

The black bungalow that housed El Chingon for eight years may have a new owner before the end of the month, according to a local real estate broker.

Michael DePalma, vice president of Sullivan Hayes Brokerage, said the 3,550-squarefoot lot owned by Melanie Smith was under contract as of April 26. Lorenzo Nunez Jr.’s popular Mexican bistro, El Chingon, did not renew its lease on the property when it expired in October, Westword reported.

The 2,818-square-foot cottage, erected in 1904, is restaurant ready with a hood and grease trap in place. In addition to a dining area on the main floor, there is a back patio and a covered front porch which was used for outdoor seating. The asking price for 4326 N. Tennyson St.is not listed, but it is available upon request.

“For any particular user, we’d be happy to talk about it,” DePalma told The Denver North Star. “But we’re not necessarily publishing a price.”

The assessed value of the property is $244,180 and the actual value is recorded as $842,000, according to the Denver property taxation and assessment system.
