This mid-century modern house is currently for sale in Denver, Colorado. And it is a lovely mid-century specimen. But needs some tender love & care on the inside.
It sort of reminds me of a school built in the 1960’s… or my former obstetrician’s office. Not that said office brings back any fond memories (I was deathly ill the entire nine months!)… but I did spend many hours in the waiting room admiring the mid-century architecture of the place.
Have a look at the interior:
Spacious and even cavernous without any furniture, but I do love that brick wall with the fireplace and those wood beams (but NOT the fake wood paneling on the ceiling)!
Here’s another HUGE room:
The large windows are amazing and so very mid-century.
I’m very puzzled, though, by what is on the floor…
Is that… poured and dyed concrete? Vinyl tiles? Linoleum? Peel and stick? Other?
It’s an even lighter color in this room:
The dining room area is just off the kitchen…
That funky light-fixture (above) might be worth saving.
The most impressive feature of this house is definitely the expansive windows… and the green, lush yard that they so nicely frame.
Back inside, the kitchen does not appear to have been updated (much) and doesn’t really have that cute vintage feel, just kinda blah:
(Notice the faux-wood accordion folding door? I had that same type of door on my closet in the 1980’s!)
Overall though, I love this space and I think it has excellent potential. “Good, solid bones”, as they say in real estate.
The first thing I would do if I bought this place, would be to replace the flooring with some warm (real) wood floors. Perhaps there are actually wood floors under all that… stuff.
In any case, the light and architecture make this place a “diamond-in-the-rough” awaiting new owners that will give it the love that it deserves.

ps…. I read the listing write-up more carefully, and it states that the flooring is “cork“!
