As more baby boomers retire, there has been resurgence in nostalgic homes that remind many of their childhood homes from the 1950s and 1960s. When conducting a Metro Denver luxury home search, it isn’t always easy to spot the best midcentury homes that are ideal for a modern renovation. A Denver Realtor who specializes in luxury homes can help you find the best choices in midcentury modern architecture that Denver has to offer. If you own a midcentury luxury home built in the 1950s or 1960s, now may be a good time to list your home.
Choosing your location
When moving to the Denver area from out-of-state, it may be difficult to choose a location without the help of an experienced Realtor who knows the community. In the University Park area, it’s possible to find spacious multi-level and bi-level homes built in the 1950s in a price range just shy of $1 million. If you have $2.5 million or more to spend, you may be able to find spacious homes in the Hilltop area designed by mid-century modern architects. Other areas with mid-century modern homes and architecture include Belcaro, Cherry Creek and even Boulder. There are mid-century modern homes in Downtown Denver as well as in Montclair, Hilltop and Harvey Park. Arapahoe Acres and Arapahoe Hills are excellent places to find a mid-century design home in Denver. To find your new home in any Denver area neighborhood, contact us.
One of the distinct differences with midcentury modern style homes in Denver is that they are typically situated on lots that bring the feeling of the outdoors into the home. A Metro Denver luxury home search for midcentury marvels will often net homes with private balconies, wall-to-floor windows, hot tubs, pools, patios, wrap-around deck and gazebos. Skylights and courtyards are also very common with this style.
Unique architectural characteristics
Other features to look for when doing a Metro Denver luxury home search for homes built in the ‘50s and ‘60s include architectural characteristics such as geometric design and angled roofs. Midcentury homes that have been renovated may include transom windows, new hardwood floors, marble countertops as well as modern technology.
Whether the home you find has been renovated or not will often play a factor in how the seller lists their midcentury home for sale. A price of more than $200 per square feet is not uncommon when doing a Metro Denver luxury home search for renovated midcentury homes. With a less expensive home, you may need to budget money for your modern remodel.
