Neighborhood Profile-Arapahoe Acres

I love this neighborhood it was recently profiled in Metropolitan Home as post war era collection of homes that have put on the National Register of Historic Places.  It is made up of only 124 homes that span from Marion to Franklin and Dartmouth to Bates just across the Englewood line south of Denver.  The lots are typically over 6000 square feet and the homes range from 1100-3000 square feet.  It is truly for the mid-century modern enthusiast.  (Which I’ve got on my list of home styles I would like to remodel)  It is so unique to the Metro area especially as you cross the line into the neighborhood out of the rambled ranch style a few blocks away.  It seems like it could be a real close-knit community.  Most of the renovations appear to come from a true appreciation of the time period and updated with restraint and respect.  If you are out and about this weekend check it out you will not be disappointed.  If  you are a mid-century mod fan grab your check book a FOR SALE sign is typically hard to find
