Historic Arapahoe Acres

This mid-century modern icon is lovingly named the ‘Subry House’ after the first homeowners who had the privilege of living in such a brilliant artistic display of architecture.

Built in 1956 by Edward Hawkins, the Subry House is a beautiful illustration of Usonian Style — a term coined by famed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright — with a strong indoor/outdoor connection, a myriad of organic materials, dramatic overhangs and natural lighting throughout.  

Casual living is capitalized in this ranch-style retreat in historic Arapahoe Acres. You can feel the midcentury magic emanating from this home.

Refinished warm mahogany walls hug the natural curves and clean lines that flow from the foyer into the dramatic open floor plan where the living room, dining room and kitchen live.

Clerestory windows frame the expansive outdoor space and summon natural light to illuminate the space. The showstopper is the original, double-sided redstone fireplace with a cylindrical concrete flue standing at attention.

Creatively placed custom nooks and hidden shelving don white complementing the wood walls. The white shelves are carried into the kitchen, which is accented with a pop of muted blue tiles.

A staple of mid-century modern is a strong visual connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The sunroom is a special space for that connection, with two walls of floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors to the paved patio and backyard oasis. A built-in, stone wood burning grill is an equal balance of aesthetic and function and primed for hosting guests and summer barbecues.

Masterfully renovated defines the master suites updated bathroom. Floor to ceiling white marble tile envelops the walk-in shower and complements the geometric hexagon marble floor. A dazzling black tile was chosen as a backdrop for a separate wall and matches the cool matte black countertop.

The light-filled bedroom is all thanks to the ribbon windows that line the wall. Double doors open to spacious closet space.
