Here’s yet another well-preserved midcentury home coming at you, this time by way of Englewood, Colorado, located in the historic neighborhood of Arapahoe Acres. Built in 1956, the Subry House was recently updated to bring a few elements like the kitchen and master bath into the contemporary age, but everything else remains true to the era.

It measures 1,652 square feet and boasts four bedrooms, two baths, and many elements of midcentury modern design that still endure. These include a low, single-story construction, strong horizontal lines, low-pitched roof with generous overhangs, and an open-plan living room. Here, a handsome stone fireplace with a cylindrical concrete flue holds court, while floor-to-ceiling windows open up to a lovely sun room. Ribbon windows and built-ins are found throughout the home.

The tan exterior is accented by a wood-frame grid, and mahogany panels the interior walls of the common spaces. The floors are made from polished concrete, while a couple of the bedrooms feature carpeting.

Outside, two patios, a built-in grill, grassy yard with raised garden beds, mature trees, and a two-car garage round out the property. Located at 3011 South Franklin Street, it’s offered at $695,000.
