Designed by Norman Polivnik in 1957, the Goldman residence is a time capsule of midcentury style and vintage abstract artwork.

The late artist and businessman Edward Goldman balanced two passions throughout his life: a career at Central Electric in Denver, where he rose to be CEO, and a dedication to perfecting his craft as a self-trained painter.  For most of his life, Goldman, along with his wife, Elaine, lived in the lush Denver neighborhood of Wellshire. It was there that local architect Norman Polivnik built the couple a classic midcentury-style residence in 1957—a home never before offered for sale, until now.

Built in 1957, the Goldman residence is a classic midcentury in the Wellshire/Southern Hills neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. The clean, minimalist exterior is clad in brick and wood with large windows overlooking a lushly landscaped lot.

Stretched across a wide tree-lined lot, the 5,000-square-foot home embraces its green surroundings with atrium-like spaces and windows galore. Wood paneling runs throughout the interior, contrasting with pops of abstract artwork and built-in shelving. The spacious floor plan offers three bedrooms, along with two full and two half baths, plus a library and an Allmilmo kitchen.

 A look at the spacious living room area, which flows into the kitchen. Built-in shelving runs along one wall, while the back corner offers a brick fireplace and windows overlooking an interior atrium space.

A large peninsula separates the kitchen, which features period Allmilno finishes. The space has since been upgraded with modern appliances and fixtures.

Another view of the kitchen, which offers plenty of cabinetry and countertop space. A central island offers an additional prep area, while large windows provide views of the yard.

The living room also flows into a formal dining room. Wood paneling lines the walls and ceiling, with an abstract screen and indoor plantings dividing the space from a family room and office.

A look at the spacious family room, which features additional built-ins, wooden beams and paneling, as well as clerestory windows that invite long rays of natural light into the space.

Downstairs, a large basement offers even more built-ins, as well as additional living or recreational areas. The double-height room is brightened by clerestory windows.

A look at one of the home's three bedrooms. Here, the master suite features an exposed brick wall and a unique interior window overlooking the atrium space.

The master suite feels like a throwback to the 1950s. Clerestory windows stretch along the vanity, while bulb lighting and a mirrored ceiling add to the space's retro vibe.

A large patio and garden awaits in the backyard. Set on a .47-acre lot—one of the largest in the neighborhood—the home offers a private setting for relaxing among the lush greenery.
