This midcentury Denver home is an architectural love affair between two distinct styles: a soaring A-frame and a low-lying post-and-beam design.
Built by Colorado practice Gratts & Warner, the 1965 house sits in the coveted enclave of Lynwood (feted for its modernist offerings). It is for sale for $799,500 via Jack Urbano and Peter Blank of Milehi Modern.
A long, brick wall hides the Colorado property’s interiors from the street – though this solid facade is punctuated by its playful pitched roof and triangular panes of glass. This soaring space houses the great room, crossed by giant timber beams and flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows.
The decor is 1960s kitsch, with vintage floral sofas, an Eero Saarinen tulip table and bubble chair honing the vibe. But strip away ornamentation, and the house’s bones are painted brick, mahogany wood panels.
Three bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, alongside an updated galley kitchen, while the basement houses a retro entertainment space complete with shaggy carpet and a bar.
