Home: Arapahoe Acres- for sale

It has been ages since I have photographed a home in our old neighborhood.  Arapahoe Acres, if you don’t already know, is the first post 1950’s neighborhood to gain historic status.  Once you see a few of the exterior and interiors of the homes, you will see why.  I have several homes highlighted in my Arapahoe Acres category.

This home has been owned and inhabited by a sculptor and his wife, an esthetician.  They have created a haven in their backyard and the home itself has so many unique features for an AA home.  A mud room/laundry and an attached garage are just a couple details that may only be appreciated by those of us who didn’t have these amenities.  Also, they blew insulation into their cinder block.  Huge!  I only wish we could move back.  We miss our MCM hood and home.

This original mahogany below sink cupboard can be found in many, if not all, of the homes in Arapahoe Acres. I refinished ours. It is a detail worth saving or adding if your AA slanted cupboard has been removed.
