Description

The Hawkins House, 1957 is the culmination of six years of Edward Hawkins' design-build influence in Arapahoe Acres. Once his own personal residence, this property is the pinnacle and finale of one of the the most iconic mid-century modern neighborhoods in the entire country. This home is being offered to discerning collectors and sophisticated connoisseurs looking to immerse themselves in an authentic architectural experience and a tranquil, Japanese inspired setting. Boasting the only Irimoya roof in the neighborhood, exposed rafter tips, and traditional Japanese balcony rail, the Hawkins House exudes craftsmanship not found in modern building practices. The impressive front door is modeled on a shoji screen, flanked by elegantly formed junipers, and an unpeeled birch trunk with original Arapahoe Acres street numbers that supports the balcony above. Residing on a half acre true double lot, by far the largest in the neighborhood, the grounds contains an exceptional collection of meticulously pruned shrubs, maples, and character pines. Two classical Japanese water features add movement and energy to these compelling gardens, enhancing the sanctuary. The expansive side yard and grass is where the original in-ground pool was once located and can be easily reawakened. The interior boasts Jade green stone tiles and a meticulously crafted wood banister, with custom ceilings and walls to greet the visitor as they ascend the stairs to the great room. Mountain views and the serenity of everything that is Arapahoe Acres becomes your vista from the shoji screen covered, west facing windows. The main area includes a custom sofa that creates an atmosphere conducive to entertaining guests or raising elevated young minds. A second glass enclosed living room, with a third fireplace, facing the private Japanese garden and waterfall to the east. This is the ultimate prize for a sophisticated, distinctive, and cultured Buyer. Home being sold strictly as-is.
