2977 Forest Street

North Park Hill

Renovation at its core is about celebrating change: visualizing floor plans that don’t exist, incorporating designer details, and creatively revisioning how a home lives. That was the intent of 2977 Forest Street, and the plan was executed exquisitely.

Surrounded by an enclave of thoughtfully restored and redesigned mid-century moderns is this 3-bedroom ranch just shy of being brand new with quality materials used throughout. In pure contemporary form—with energy-efficient systems—the home was built by local builders, Level Ground Construction, whose projects have been featured in Modern in Denver. The innovative construction company is highlighted as being brilliant at balancing the old with new. Shown here is a prime example of their mastery.

Back to being just shy of being brand new. Designers dismantled the house layer by layer finding inspiration in iconic spaces from the past (hello, Mad Men era) while also incorporating what’s new—bespoke walnut cabinetry, terrazzo and white oak flooring and expansive glazed panels that create a deep connection from the inside-out.

Custom touches start with the front door and touch every detail in this iconic mid-century modern. Crossing the threshold reveals an authentic single-family ranch with a spacious open floor plan and soaring 16-foot ceilings that breathe in the abundant daylight. Wide plank white oak flooring sets the stage and also tastefully conceals the radiant heat system.

The renovation quite literally and figuratively broke down barriers. The new open floor plan is more conducive to socializing and is centered on an eye-catching brick gas fireplace in the main living/gathering area.

The thematic use of brick, exposed steel beams and wood shiplap paneling are carried through the house into the outdoors, melding the outdoor and indoor environments into one conclusive space. As shown in the sliding doors that open to the back patio from the central living area. With an expansive 6,870 sqft oversized lot, the amount of comfortable living space is thanks to this indoor-outdoor flow.

Looking to what’s new—cool hardware, latest tech, energy-efficiency—was smartly blended with style inspiration from the past. Each room has features worth noting all under the umbrella of modern and comfortable living.


The heart of the home is the kitchen. This home’s redesign incorporated a large kitchen with an oversized island for ample working space, white quartz countertops and a complete KitchenAid appliance package, including a 6-burner gas stovetop/oven. Tiffany blue tile backsplash nods to the mid-mod muse, and coordinates beautifully with the custom cabinets dressed in walnut.

Secluded from the central open space is the master suite fitted with a large walk-in closet and five-piece master bathroom. Although the suite is settled on its own wing, shiplap ceilings, exposed steel beams and oversized windows thematically connect all of the living spaces.

The same rule applies in the bathroom with a double vanity clad in quartz and custom walnut cabinetry (like the kitchen). The walk-in glass shower and deep soaking tub are accentuated with black finishes, that dramatically contrast with the overall bright, neutral palette.

Two light-filled bedrooms live on the south side of the house with a shared bathroom that mimics the luxury seen in the master bathroom—two under counter sinks with quartz countertops and walnut cabinetry.

This particular project is hugged by other like-minded mid-century moderns, which have all been reimagined and soulfully updated in North Park Hill. Centrally located to Downtown, the address is also two blocks to the new Park Hill Commons development, which is bringing much anticipated additional dining and shops to the neighborhood.

Also, within the Park Hill Elementary, McAuliffe Middle School and East High School boundary, this neighborhood hot spot is a location to watch.
