Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Littleton, Colorado

By MidModMichelle

Brace yourselves darlings, this epic time-capsule home nearly gave me a heart attack when I saw it. DAAAANNNNGGGG!!!!! Seriously, what’s not to love about this breathtaking mid-century modern home spotted on the Mid-Century Modern Real Estate World Wide Facebook group posted by Sean M.?! I know you’re dying to check it out, let’s go!

This home designed by Edward Hawkins is located at 3650 Chimayo Rd, Littleton, Colorado on a nice lot in the desirable Arapaho Hills neighborhood. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,366 square foot home built in 1957 that is being offered at $595,000. The listing is courtesy of Laura Jones at HomeSmart. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:

The one you’ve been waiting for! Original condition, Edward Hawkins designed, Mid-Century Modern home in Arapaho Hills, a historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places and on the City of Littleton’s List of Merit. Original owner until 2006 and then meticulously cared for and preserved in pristine, time-capsule condition by another MCM lover. The house has mahogany walls, tongue and groove ceilings, rose rhyolite masonry walls, grass cloth wall covering, new carpet and paint, floor to ceiling windows looking out to the adorable, low maintenance yard. Original features throughout such as cado wall systems, stove top, lighting fixtures and more. There is even ample off street parking for your Airstream. Close to old town Littleton and light rail and within award winning Littleton public schools. This is a true Mid-Century Modern showcase home.


(Such a fantastic low-slung profile with a pop of color!)

(I love everything about this entry!)


(What a great space! The built-in shelving is GORGEOUS!!)

(Love the look of the stone wall!)


(Those uppers are killing me!!! That type of cabinet was original to our 1960s home, only color-blocked with blue and green. I know because I tracked down the original owner and we had a lovely and lengthy chat about the house! Sadly they are long gone due to a later owner’s renovation.)






So yeah… I’m ready to move to Colorado! I mean, if I could afford it! Haha! How’d y’all like this one?

    I appreciate the fact that the seller understood the time period of the house and furnished it accordingly, even when using new items and materials. I’m ready to move to Colorado!

    Wonderfully well kept home. Let’s hope the new owner appreciates it all and keeps it intact.

      The fridge is definitely such a great piece! But here’s a question… how on earth do they use the microwave all the way up there?! HAHA!
