Intriguing new item on the market in Denver: a 1942-built house that's quite possibly the earliest example of Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian style in the Mile High City. Designed by Earl Chester Morris, a local pioneer of modernist architecture, the two-story residence has the characteristic Usonian flat overhanging roof and large glass windows connecting the interior to the outdoor landscape. More recently, a painstaking renovation has injected more modern polish, incorporating hardwood flooring throughout, terrazzo baths, stainless countertops in the new custom kitchen.

Set on 0.36 lush acres, the roughly 5,500-square-foot home comes with plenty of terraces and decks. As detailed in local lifestyle magazine 5280, current owners recently upped the house's dinner party cred with help from landscape architects Paul Wrona and Chris Turner, who added a custom steel-and-wood pergola for an outdoor dining and a more loungy area with bench seating and a fire pit made out of precast concrete and tiger wood. It's a dream.
