Lookout Mountain

This gorgeous mid-mod home crafts an incredible quilt of timeless design, historical merit and charming character throughout. Designed by famed mid-century Denver architect, James Norman, this home is unique in both its locale and custom construction.

A custom cedar, glass and red river brick exterior commingles with a wild-scaped outdoor haven, specifically crafted for low water and light maintenance needs. Gorgeous millwork escorts residents into an entryway that stretches towards a living area situated beneath vaulted ceilings and exposed beams.

Floor-to-ceiling glass drenches the space in forest and mountain views with a sunny southern balcony offering wonderful privacy while blending indoor and outdoor living beautifully.

Features such as these and exposed brick, tongue-in-groove ceilings and radiant fireplaces have been well-loved by the owner — an artist and student of art history — for 60 years. Embark on the journey of mountain living just a short drive from Boulder and Downtown Denver.
