Throw BackThursday and this home on VASSAR LANE stirs the nostalgia.  Close your eyes and picture a child's linen dress drying in the sun on a line that stretches the width of a nearly half acre lot...think you are back in the fifties?  Want to get back to that feeling or thinking?  The backyard of this home will fire the amygdala and send you daydreaming back to summer nights filled with freeze tag, bbq briquets, croquet mallets and... want s'more?  The southern facing lot is summer perfection with morning patio breakfasts lingering into lazy afternoon hammocks and evening sunset suppers al fresco...mmmm!
This is it, Martha...bring it on!

The interior does not disappoint either!  The architectural design calls for pitched wood ceilings with wood beams, planked wood walls and windows flooding sunshine throughout.  The kitchen is open to the great/living room, a formal dining room offers a cozy wood burning fireplace, there is even a main floor bedroom!  The style is artist retreat or mountain contemporary or uniquely cool.  The neighborhood is a hidden gem, with homes on large lots in the heart of Denver yet within the Cherry Creek School District.  Minutes from the Yale Light Rail station, the Highline Canal, University Hills shopping, Eisenhower Park, Wellshire Golf and the sweetest farmer's market in the city.

In this world of cookie cutter shapes and sizes along with cookie cutter/builder delivered homes on cookie sized lots, this home on Vassar Lane offers the unique and custom quality of years and ideas gone by.  The architecture and finish are custom,  the lot is unquestionably a "hard to find" urban feature.
