On the market for $800K, the Frenchie Gratts design features mahogany beams that touch down in the middle of the living room.
A bohemian pad was just listed in Denver's coveted midcentury modern neighborhood of Lynwood. Built in 1956 by the local firm of Gratts & Warner, the unique home blends two architecture styles into one: a post-and-beam construction and an A-framed central great room. Exposed rafters from the A-framed section are anchored right in the middle of the living room, creating a triangular style that is repeated throughout the home.
"Homes throughout this community were originally built to bring optimistic, informal, and affordable home designs to Denver," says listing agent, Jack Urbano. "The builder-architect team drew inspiration from successful West Coast designs, like those from Joseph Eichler, but were also inspired by Midwest and East Coast designs as well." The home currently for sale captures all of these vibes and more.
The nearly 2,700-square-foot property packs an expansive great room and three bedrooms into the first floor, along with a funky lounge and bar in the basement. Individually styled rooms are decked out in colorful vintage furniture and colorful fabrics, all of which blend with original Philippine mahogany woodwork and modern updates. A sunny courtyard and large backyard round out the amenities. Keep scrolling to see more of this retro Denver abode, currently listed for $799,500.
