We've always been intrigued by mid-century modern architecture and have enjoyed exploring the homes in Krisana Park and Arapahoe Acres. As luck would have it, we were able to purchase a mid-century home in Krisana Park (Denver). This home is part of an enclave of 175 mid-century moderns inspired by the Eichler style of homes in California. The neighborhood was developed by H.B. Wolff from 1954-1957, supposedly on an alfafa field.
