Mid-Century Modern is a tricky style. Placed in the wrong hands, the finished product can look like Bobby and Cindy got sick on Mike Brady's drafting table. But put the right people in charge and the result is so...well...cool.
Here's a stunning example of Mid-Century Modern done right. This raised ranch holds four bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in its 4,544 square feet, but clinical descriptions as such just don't cut it.
A careful renovation designed by Hive Architects has resulted in an extraordinary home -- a harmonious collection of materials: glass, bamboo, white oak, steel, rock red balau wood, quartz and translucent panels encapsulating real birch branches among them.
The half-acre setting on the Red Rocks Country Club's 17th hole is equally impressive. with amazing vistas of red rock formations, wildlife and the downtown skyline. Yet the Willow Springs neighborhood in Morrison is tucked just behind the Hogback -- only four minutes from C-470 and 25 (real) minutes from a parking space downtown.
Willow Springs offers the scenery and feel of the foothills, but is much closer to Denver than other foothills communities in Evergreen and Conifer. The neighborhood surrounds Red Rocks Country Club, which features a beautiful 18-hole golf course and a newly renovated pool area. The clubhouse offers casual and fine dining, yet this is a club that embraces the laid back Colorado lifestyle. I live in Willow Springs and would be happy to answer any questions about the neighborhood.
