The Most Colorful Home on the Block in Lynwood

I was invited to shoot this mid-century modern ranch home designed by architect Frenchie Gratts in Denver’s Lynwood neighborhood in the greater Virginia Village area - one of two that I got to shoot at the same time. This home is striking from the street, with its purple stack-bond brick wall (echoed inside with the central fireplace at the focal point of the home). This model by the builder H. B. Wolff & Co., designed by architect Frenchie Gratts, was considered innovative in the 1950s for its approach to free-planning space. Two rooms flanked the kitchen, and were divided by the fireplace wall - but weren’t given a clear assignment. You could have a more public living room in front, and put your dining room adjacent to the private outdoor living areas, or vice-versa. It also provided an opportunity to define which areas were formal and informal. An interesting design, to be sure.

This home also included a large studio shed, big enough for a small business to operate from. This home went under contract almost immediately after going on the market, and sold for $1.2M.

This shoot also included a 360° virtual tour, which can be viewed here.
