Location: Littleton, Colorado
Located right outside the midcentury enclave of Arapahoe Acres in Englewood, Colorado, is a home designed by the development’s brainchild, Denver-born builder Edward Hawkins.
This particular residence is located within Arapaho Hills in neighboring Littleton, a residential subdivision also with historic designation—and also conceived by Hakwins.
Featuring a single-story construction and a broad, gently sloping gable roof, the house has remained in more or less original condition since it was built in 1956, and under the care of the same owner until 2006.
It measures 1,366 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms and a plethora of time capsule-like details, including mahogany walls, tongue-and-groove ceilings, rose rhyolite masonry walls, and grass cloth wall covering.
An open-plan living space is anchored by a stone hearth and floor-to-ceiling windows and encompasses a dining area and a period kitchen behind a partial wall, where the stovetop, oven, and cabinetry are all original. There’s even an adjoining flex room.
Bedrooms are set in their own wing, with one an ensuite with original cabinetry and tiling, and another with a hanging wall system and a desk. The second bathroom also boasts original details.
An ample yard plus a small patio off the living room offer lovely outdoor entertaining opportunities. And according to the listing, “There is even off street parking for your Airstream camper!” 3650 Chimayo Road is move-in ready and is offered at $595,000. Take a look.
