Denver, Colorado, may be better known for its proximity to

skiing
and outdoor recreation than for its architecture, but
neighborhoods in the Mile High city boast a surprising number of
architectural styles. Southeast of downtown in the Virginia Village
neighborhood sits a small enclave called Krisana Park, with 174
modestly sized midcentury modern homes.

Built by H.B. Wolff and designed by architects Frenchie Gratts
of Denver’s Gratts and Warner, the homes—often called 3-D
contemporaries—were inspired by Joseph Eichler’s indoor-outdoor
designs in California.

Take
this just listed three-bedroom, two-bath home
. Using
post-and-beam construction and a wide roof overhang, the
1,549-square-foot house greets visitors with a sunlit atrium of
Colorado moss rock. A media room features a sliding glass door to a
large covered patio, while a living room has a matching moss rock
fireplace and a glass wall that looks out onto a private lanai. The
dining area boasts original mahogany walls and easy access to an
updated kitchen, and the bedrooms each feature vaulted ceilings and
large windows.

The interior entrance to the ranch home has wood floors and a small planter area with bamboo, white rock, and a wall of moss rock. A
small atrium in the foyer welcomes visitors with a wall of Colorado
moss rock and a place for plants. A living room has a rock fireplace, seating, exposed beams, and wood floors. A
moss rock fireplace takes center stage in the living room, as does
exposed beams and the glass doors that lead out to a private
courtyard. A dining room has a wooden table with six white midcentury inspired dining room chairs. The
dining room features original mahogany wall panels, clerestory
windows, and wood floors. A courtyard has two blue chairs, a fire pit, a heater, and midcentury art on the walls. Outside
the living room there is a private courtyard, a signature of
Krisana Park’s 3-D contemporary homes. A long and narrow kitchen features dark wood cabinets, white countertops, and stainless steel appliances. The
updated galley-style kitchen features quartz counters and stainless
steel appliances. A living room with blue couch, white and blue rug, and TV. A
media room features a sliding glass door to the oversized backyard.
A gray bed sits on a gray and white rug in a bedroom with exposed beams. The
master bedroom also features access to the patio through French
doors.
