Property Description

Amazing opportunity to own a piece of Colorado history! This 1956 mid-century modern home at 1450 E Bates Ave in Arapahoe Acres was developed by Edward Hawkins and designed in the Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian style and is located in the highly coveted custom home community of only 124 homes. Arapahoe Acres is the first post-WWII subdivision on the National Historic Register of Historic Places and celebrates its 75th diamond anniversary this year. Over the decades, this home has been featured in national magazines, Arapahoe Acres garden tours, and the Denver Post. In addition, it is one of the larger custom homes in Arapahoe Acres. The main floor includes a gorgeous office, a chef's dream kitchen, and a custom-designed primary bathroom. Skylights and picture windows throughout give you natural light in all locations. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and looks out over your beautiful outdoor living spaces while the main floor office is great for working from home or could be converted to an additional bedroom if needed. A sleek modern kitchen includes an impressive Ilve stove/range and custom cabinets. The primary bedroom has a beautifully designed spa-like ensuite five-piece bathroom with a bidet and heated floors. The lower level features a lovely living room and three secondary bedrooms that can also be used as exercise rooms, craft rooms, or an additional office. The backyard was designed and landscaped as a tranquil oasis with waterfalls and ponds designed by a Japanese landscape artist hand-picked by Hawkins. This sanctuary has a wrap-around deck with spaces for dining, relaxing, and entertaining. Many upgrades were done on this home in the last few years including the sprinkler system, concrete paths outside, kitchen appliances, water heater, furnace, and subfloors on the main level. Arapahoe Acres is centrally located and only minutes from Platte Park, DU, Wash Park, Harvard Gulch, and I25. Hurry to own a piece of Colorado history!
