Denver, Colorado, may be most famous for its high-altitude status and proximity to skiing, but it also boasts a surprising number of neighborhoods that are packed with midcentury charm. Take this three-bedroom, two-bath home in Krisana Park. An enclave in the larger Virginia Village neighborhood, Krisana Park is made up of about 170 ranch homes built in the 1950s that looked to Joseph Eichler for design inspiration.

The modestly sized homes—the beauty pictured below is 1,608 square feet—feature post-and-beam construction with wide roof overhangs. Tongue-and-groove ceilings and an airy open floorplan are made brighter by floor-to-ceiling east facing windows. Bleached oak flooring throughout creates a streamlined look, and an updated kitchen includes white quartz countertops, a matte charcoal backsplash, and an oversized island.

The bedrooms feature thoughtful window placement and built-out closets, and a new master bath offers spacious double sinks. Outside, you’ll find a back patio with tigerwood inlays, raised garden beds, two car garage, and an additional single carport. Love what you see? 1321 South Edison Way is on the market now for $825,000.
