Denver, Colorado, may be better known for its proximity to skiing and outdoor recreation than for its architecture, but neighborhoods in the Mile High city boast a surprising number of architectural styles. Southeast of downtown in the Virginia Village neighborhood sits a small enclave called Krisana Park, with 174 modestly sized midcentury modern homes.
Built by H.B. Wolff and designed by architects Frenchie Gratts of Denver’s Gratts and Warner, the homes—often called 3-D contemporaries—were inspired by Joseph Eichler’s indoor-outdoor designs in California.
Take this just listed three-bedroom, two-bath home. Using post-and-beam construction and a wide roof overhang, the 1,549-square-foot house greets visitors with a sunlit atrium of Colorado moss rock. A media room features a sliding glass door to a large covered patio, while a living room has a matching moss rock fireplace and a glass wall that looks out onto a private lanai. The dining area boasts original mahogany walls and easy access to an updated kitchen, and the bedrooms each feature vaulted ceilings and large windows.
