233 South Birch Street – $1,100,000
MODERN COLLECTION | SOLD
Built in 1946 this icon of mid-century design stands on an elevated lot in Hilltop with commanding mountain views.
Gordon White, the architect for 233 South Birch, was also one of Denver’s forward thinking + progressive architects in the 30s to 50s. Known for his public buildings, most notably the Art Moderne Streamline Masterpiece at 2100 Downing Street, Mr. White also designed the Colorado State Capitol Annex.
The house nestles back from the street and is accessed from a graceful circular drive. Blonde brick, glass block, stained glass, Colorado flagstone and broad flat roofs stand proud to an architectural preserved structure of Denver’s residential history.
Stepping through the entry you are engaged into naturally light filled rooms – walls of glass bring the outdoors in. Beautiful polished hardwood floors, museum grade walls and original architectural detail provide the perfect backdrop for an art filled life.
The stunning asymmetrical travertine fireplace takes center stage in the living room. The dining room and kitchen all open out to a covered outdoor terrace.
A sculptural original staircase soars two stories and is framed by a stained glass wall washing the space with a kaleidoscope of brilliant colors.
