Location: Denver, Colorado
Though this 1950s East Denver home has been upgraded, it retains many of the original details of its midcentury modern design—including a retro kitchen that's not to be missed.
The balance of the midcentury aesthetic and more recent updates is evident right from the facade, where a glassy garage offsets a massive front window surrounded by brick. A gently sloping roof extends over the entrance, creating an intimate nook leading to the front door.
The home, modest at 2,058 square feet, is located in Mayfair, one of Denver's oldest neighborhoods known for its brick homes and tree-lined avenues.
Despite the limited square footage, walls of full-height windows make the home feel bright and spacious. Warm interior details, original to the house, include cork and hardwood floors. A brick fireplace and wooden built-ins were also left intact.
But what really makes this house unique is its kitchen, which was kept in its original condition—except for the appliances, which, luckily, have since been upgraded. The orange and yellow cabinets bring a delightful shower of color to the space, which comes with its own eat-in dining area.
There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. There's also raised deck located through French doors off of the master suite.
Other outdoor spaces include the private covered patio off the kitchen, and low-maintenance hardscaping in the front and back yard. Seemingly every wall of the home enjoys views out massive windows and glass doors onto the cozy property. Located at 701 Ivanhoe Street on a block of other charming, low-rise brick homes, it's available for $659,900.
