Midcentury Modern Stunner in Denver is ‘Habitable Art’

The listing agent calls the location of this stunning Denver Midcentury Modern A-frame “one of the sweetest blocks in Park Hill” – which only boosts how much in love any lover of post-war modern architecture could be in this historical shelter.

Near the tony Seventeenth Avenue parkway and just blocks away from Denver’s large City Park, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, a library, and the Denver Zoo, this 1950s-era home already has the location, location, location part of the real estate mantra down cold.

But what is even more impressive is the home itself. Built by local architect Robert Morris in 1954, the home is the embodiment of Midcentury Modern, without feeling dated. 

“Features include clerestory windows, 16-foot ecclesiastical ceilings with tongue and groove details, wood-burning fireplace, floor to ceiling glass, and walls wrapped in stacked bond brick,” said listing agent Liz Richards. 

But that doesn’t mean the current owners didn’t update. Thoughtful upgrades include quartz countertops, custom European style cabinets, designer tiles, and more in the remodeled kitchen and designer tile and lighting in the second bath. Updates abound which include the newly remodeled kitchen with quartz stone countertops, custom European style cabinets, designer tiles and lighting in the second bath. 

And of course, the stunning amount of natural light and open airiness that comes with Midcentury Modern architecture, and makes the extremely private backyard feel like an additional room of the house. 

“This home is beyond special-it’s habitable art and not to be missed!” Richards said.

The home is priced at $865,000, and is listed by Liz Richards with Sotheby’s International.
