A forgotten Sternberg designed home in Denver’s Plaza Heights
Sold for $488,000 in June 2019
Open for admiration! A forgotten Sternberg in University Hills . . .
Designed by Eugene Sternberg for the Plaza Company, this home is a mid-century modern classic. Throughout the house are exposed beams, tongue-and-groove-ceilings, and ample windows, many of which extend up to the underside of the roof. On the front of the house, Sternberg skillfully exposes the the structure with a window wall that runs the length of the living room where windows are set in between the posts that support the roof beams above. A central fireplace with cantilevered concrete hearth acts as a focal point to the home’s spacious living room, while a mahogany screen with vertical louvers provides a visual separation from the front door.
Even the galley kitchen in the back of the house has huge windows that extend to the roof and look out onto the home’s spacious backyard. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large dining room with a large sliding glass door that opens onto a large covered patio. From here you find the bedroom wing containing three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a master bedroom with ensuite ¾ bath.
Through much of the house, including a couple of the bedrooms, you will find stained mahogany paneling bringing warmth and natural materials indoors. The vaulted ceilings under the low-slope roof make the modest home feel open and spacious. Everywhere in the home, from how the fireplace is crafted, to how the windows are designed to integrate neatly into the structure, you will find details that can only be found in homes designed by an architect.
Sternberg, who lived just a few blocks away in nearby South Dahlia Lane (in which he designed the neighborhood layout and all of the homes in it) when this house was built, is respected as one of Denver’s modern masters. He immigrated from Czechoslovakia and was educated in Prague and London before immigrating to Colorado and becoming the head of Denver University’s department of architecture. During his long career in Denver, he designed countless homes, neighborhoods, and commercial/institutional buildings in the city and suburbs.
