Designed around a central courtyard

Midcentury modern style doesn’t just look good—hello, furnishings—it’s also very livable. Take this four-bedroom, two-bath home in the Harvey Park neighborhood of Denver, Colorado.

Built in 1955 by D.C. Burns Realty & trust and designed by Cliff May and Chris Choate, the 1,615-square-foot house boasts many of the iconic architect’s trademark features. Harvey Park is a unique neighborhood in the Mile High City; it’s home to 170 tract homes designed by May.

Organized around a central courtyard, often considered to be an outdoor living room, the home is larger than some in the area thanks to a small addition that enclosed the original half-garage, half-carport. The main living spaces all feature views on to the 6,000-square-foot lot, and window walls in both the master and living room provide ample natural light.

Each bedroom has vaulted ceilings and glass gables for an airy feel, and the master suite has an enlarged walk-in closet, a master bath, glass gables, and plenty of windows. Other perks include a library with built-in shelving, an avocado-colored freestanding fireplace, an updated kitchen, and mature landscaping around the patio.

A simple and updated take on midcentury living, 2500 South Meade Street is on the market now for $468,000.
