Golden cantilevered mod
Incredible cantilevered modern house in Golden, with dual cylindrical flues!
(From the early 1960s, I presume)

Ed Hawkins, the man responsible for Arapahoe Acres, built this house in 1957, after
returning from a visit to Japan. He lived in this residence for ten years.
The false balcony is a playful break from the honesty of his beautiful Usonian and
International style designs that permeate Arapahoe Acres.

Usonian-style home in the Hilltop area designed 1954 by Joseph Lort.
There is another Lort design in Hilltop, an International-style house from 1946, but his
other 1954 Hilltop Usonian design was torn down in 2000.

Finally took a photo of this home in Littleton’s Arapaho Hills that I am happy with (click to enlarge). It was designed in late-1950s (probably 1957) by Mannon Associates. Arapaho Hills was a follow-up development to Englewood’s Arapahoe Acres.
The low horizontal profile is deceiving… if you look at the size of the front door, you realize that the wall on the left is taller than a person. The design is based on one of the two Reed Houses in Arapahoe Acres. (Look here)

More Barnum rooflines
A continuation of photos of Usonian rooflines in the Barnum area of Denver.
Again, not the best photos, I took these years ago, with no intention of publishing them
This home I would date from around 1950, the others probably mid-1950s.
This last one was in the middle of a paint job when I took the photo, so this one will not
enlarge when clicked. Just appreciate the roofline.

These photos might not be the best and they are a little old (as can be attested to by the
Hillary For President sign), but I love the Usonian rooflines of these homes scattered in
little pockets throughout the Barnum area of Denver.
