Grape St.

Architect: Barsch Design, Steve Barsch

This 1957 built mid-century modern was completely revamped in 2011/2012. It’s not your average mid-century. While maintaining 95% of the original home, the architect, Steve Barsch, added just enough square footage to create a master suite and upper deck while maintaining all the trees in the back yard. The result is a master suite that feels like a treehouse.

The redevelopment process was very organic. The owners wanted to keep as much yard as possible, open up the floor plan for family living/entertaining, add windows or cut bigger windows to draw in the light, and create outdoor space that made outdoor “rooms” under the trees. The end result has been a wonderful space for the owners to live and play with their dog.

In 2016 the home went under construction again, this time under the direction of John Mattingly, Chalet Homes, to add an office/art studio off the garage for the owner to work and paint. This “man cave” has been a great retreat, blends beautifully with the original architecture, and provides an anchor to the south side of the property.

23 Wilder Lane is a light filled, glass walled open concept Eichler inspired ranch home that maximizes indoor outdoor flow. Its glass and brick facade soar from the street, and its interior great room is filled with light from 360 degree clerestory windows. Great mid-century touches abound— grass cloth walls, clean kitchen space, cool lighting throughout.

Originally completed in 1960, this simple 1950’s ranch-style dwelling has been updated into a contemporary home on a prominent corner lot with views of Sloan’s Lake and the mountains. Using standing seam metal and custom glass and steel windows, along with the original painted brick, we created a simple form that is compatible with its surrounding neighborhood. The large courtyard and open floor plan provides a unique indoor / outdoor living experience, exploiting the house’s impressive western views from a two-story open atrium and dining room.

W. 50th Ave.

Architect: KGA Studio Architects, PC
Interiors: Design Lines

Located minutes from Denver’s downtown core, this urban infill paired home is located in a trendy, highly desirable neighborhood and boasts spectacular views from the highest point in Denver. The home nestles into the surrounding community and golf course with a modern architecture style utilizing a host of design elements found in the eclectic mix of styles from the surrounding neighborhood. This plan fits the best of all worlds into a compact, urban footprint: multiple private outdoor living spaces, 2 car garage, open floor plan, luxury master suite, home office and rooftop deck; all with the benefits of new construction and adjacent to a golf course.

The open floor plan allows views through the entire home so you can see the front porch from the small, urban backyard. The efficiency of the linear stairs allows for an open, unimpeded plan on the first floor and generously sized bedrooms on the second floor. The roomy master suite features a private deck with golf course views and bath with free standing tub and glass enclosed shower. On the 3rd level a loft with wetbar and rooftop deck are perfect for casual entertaining. The study can easily become a 3rd bedroom.


Most frequent questions and answers

It’s easy!   Just buy your tickets, then about 48 house before the Tour you’ll receive an email with links to your Tour map.  Then, on Tour day, start at any house and proceed in any order at your own pace to the homes that interest you the most – or to all of them!

Sure – some of our best guests are aspiring architects and designers.  Kids under 12 are free, and we ask that you keep the little ones close at hand.  Remember, people are opening their personal homes to us for a day, so please help us respect their property!

Giving back to the communities and homeowners that so generously welcome us every year is one of the most important things we do.  That’s why we partner with a housing or education organization in every Tour city, and why we are working to establish a scholarship fund for aspiring architects and designers.
