Why we have a crush on this property:

I love a bungalow. From the petite front porch to the perfect proportions, it just feels like the idyllic home. And this Denver bungalow is no exception. Up the front steps through the modern glass-and-wood front door, you enter into the living room. There, hardwood floors and pale gray walls create a neutral foundation for a pair of bright lemon yellow accent walls. One surrounds the fireplace, while the other encompasses a built-in cushioned window seat. Imagine curling up with a book, looking through the French windows at the snowfall? Suddenly, I love winter.

Through a wide, rounded doorway, the dining room is filled with sunlight. A chair rail detail wraps around the room, dividing the walls up into a light and darker gray for some added neutral dimension. Though the home has been updated since its 1928 construction (see the new water heater and AC unit, for example), the kitchen eschews popular bright white renovations by retaining wood cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless appliances that make the kitchen feel classic and cozy.

The home also boasts a full finished basement, which offers tons of great carpeted living space for lounging, having guests over, and working (or working out) from home. The real treasure of a bonus space, though, is outside. An awning covers a partially enclosed patio, which features globe string lights and a TV mount for magical al fresco movie nights. There’s also a well-maintained grassy area and raised planter boxes for gardening in the warmer months. Until then, though, I’ll be dreaming of watching a Christmas classic out in the frosty air, covered in blankets and sipping a hot toddy.
