Located in central Denver, these lovely neighborhoods share the iconic Eicher design, so “off the charts” modern in the 50s, but relevantly contemporary today. Both walkable neighborhoods are filled with retro charm and character. Rub elbows with the owner/publisher of Modern in Denver, a Lynwood resident, as you take an evening stroll on the wide, tree-lined streets.
Located in southwest Denver, this comfortable neighborhood features California ranch styles created by Clifford May, who introduced the first prefabricated homes in Denver in the 1960s. This neighborhood features three area lakes ideal for fishing after a hard day at work. Wide streets and designated biking lanes make it a snap to enjoy a leisurely walk or bike ride.
This small, southwest suburban enclave in Littleton sits on a hill, and the landscaping–junipers, rocks, boulders and grass–organically tie the homes together. Dramatic architecture features large roof overhangs, clerestory windows that let in light and fresh air, and masonry fireplaces with hearths.
Built in 1955, this neighborhood of 124 Usonian homes in the Frank Lloyd Wright tradition were created to offer a home that was affordable for the “common” people. Arapaho Acres was the first to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Mid-century Americana street signage and lush Japanese garden-inspired landscape make this neighborhood a wonderful place to call home.
