Love midcentury A-frames? Check out this cute three-bedroom, three-bath version in Denver, Colorado. Designed by architects Frenchie Gratts and Ed Warner in 1956, the 1,987-square-foot house is part of a collection of homes in Denver’s midcentury-filled Lywood neighborhood that were meant to be informal and affordable.
To build the homes—which were originally constructed for less than $15,000 per house—the builder-architect team drew inspiration from Eichler’s west coast A-frames. Like Eichler’s designs, this house features exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room to create an indoor-outdoor feel.
Original mahogany built-ins and hardwood floors add warmth, and the pitched roof creates stunning triangle windows. The galley kitchen has been updated, and the backyard looks perfect for entertaining with a courtyard, pergola, water feature, and spacious yard on an almost 11,000-square-foot lot.
