The Southwest Denver neighborhood of Harvey Park is my first love among Denver’s modern homes for sale. Perhaps it’s because it’s my neighborhood, but it’s also because Harvey Park has a lot to like. Harvey Park is home to Colorado’s only known Cliff May homes, as well as mid-century modern homes of all shapes and sizes ranging from sub-1,000 square foot Cliff May ranches to large custom lake-front houses with mountain views! Harvey Park has one of the largest inventories of MCM homes for sale in Denver, and yet remains one of the city’s best-kept secret. The people in Harvey Park are friendly and down to earth, and home to one of the oldest neighborhood organizations in the city, which celebrates 60 years in 2016. Visit Harvey Park Modern to learn more . . .
It’s hard to give you one spot to visit in Harvey Park, so here are a few:
- The Cliff May Homes at Lowell & Yale.
- Carey Holiday Homes at Evans & Vrain as well as Raleigh & Iliff.
- Burns Modern Homes at Quitman & Yale
- Lakeridge between Tennyson & Yates
This pair of neighborhoods in the Virginia Village area of southeast Denver were both built by local developer H.B. Wolff in the 1950s. These neighborhoods have seen a great revival in recent years as people have discovered the charm and variety of these houses, which encompass indoor/outdoor living, walls of glass, exposed beams and tongue & groove roof decks; there’s even an A-frame model!
- Krisana Park can be found at Dahlia & Florida
- Lynwood is at Holly & Jewell
“Arapaho Hills is a residential subdivision in Littleton, Colorado listed as a historic district in the National Register of Historic Places. This community of 56 unique, modern homes was constructed between 1955 to 1964. Concepted by Edward Hawkins and Clyde Mannon, Arapaho Hills reflects the Usonian and International design styles in post-World War II architecture and their influence on the development of new forms of suburban residential subdivisions. The feeling evoked by the neighborhood is that of a mid-20th century suburban enclave of residences, an expression of Modern architectural forms in a suburban residential setting.”
