This architect-designed mid-century modern custom home in beautiful Appleridge Estates offers the rare combination of great architectural design and city-close acreage in the Denver metro area. The International Style home is set on a ridge and angled on the lot to take advantage of mountain and valley views to the northwest. The post and beam structure has a distinctive design with two 10"-thick brick walls (exposed indoors) at the ends of the home, with a combination of brick and lots of glass comprising the walls between them. Exposed beams support deep overhangs that protect the many windows from sunlight and rain, and are set on a 6' module that helps define the placement of window mullions and interior walls on the main level, and supports beautiful stained tongue-and-groove ceilings indoors and out. The great room takes advantage of the mountain views with 10 large panes of glass, plus a sliding glass door to the adjacent patio. A wood folding wall can divide the great room to allow for a guest room/study as needed. The front-facing galley kitchen also benefits from ample windows, bringing in tons of natural light, and direct access to a covered patio offers easy outdoor dining in the spring and summer months. Imagine waking up to beautiful mountain views every morning in the main-level bedroom which continues the use of northwest-facing window walls. The bedroom also features exposed brick, an ensuite bath, and a generous walk-in closet. A finished partial walk-out basement downstairs offers two more bedrooms, a bathroom, and informal living room with a sliding glass door to the back yard. Attached to the west side of the house is a spacious workshop with double-door access to both the front and back patios, and an attached two-car garage with a long curving driveway. Finding custom modern architecture on acreage in the Denver metro area is extremely rare. Now is your chance at modern living, great views, and a beautiful 5+ acre lot; a true legacy property.
