Historic Modern Homes For Sale | Spring 2013

May 23rd, 2013 | 1 Comment | Posted in Cool Find, For Sale

 

Several historically significant mid-century homes have hit the market recently.

(click the thumbnails for larger pics)

Pictured above is the Nordurland House (1938)  one of the few remaining Eugene Groves’ designed structures. Groves’ residential designs are singular and defy the usual architectural labels. This is one of only 4 residences Groves designed using primarily poured, cast, and reinforced concrete…including concrete studs. More about Groves here.

 

Sink1

The iconic  Beck House (1960) was designed by Charles Sink and this is the first time it has been on the market. Of all the homes showcased here, this one is in the most danger of being razed. Sadly we lost Mr. Sink last month, but his contribution of over 250 commercial and residential projects across the west has enriched vastly the modernist landscape. More about him here.

Moderne_web

This streamline moderne  was commissioned in 1938 as wedding gift and has remained in the same family ever since. Lovely original details are still intact along with a sensitive addition done in the 1950’s. If you know anything about the architect of this home, we hope you’ll share with us.

Hornbein1_web

The Grant House by Thomas Moore and Victor Hornbein (1954) with a distinctive butterfly roof. Another “one-owner” home with original details overlooking the Denver CC golf course with views of downtown. More about Hornbein and Moore.

Knedler1

The Knedler House (1963) was the personal residence of architect Marvin Knedler who designed primarily commercial structures, notably One Denver Place in 1981.  The  large 2 story living room and wrap around deck were designed for entertaining and maximizing  the 180 degree mountain and city views. This is the first time this well preserved Usonian home has come to the market.

These are not just houses, but works of art clearly cherished by those who lived in them for 40-70 years. Please contact us for more information on these and other historically significant modern homes in the Denver/Boulder area.
