Remarkable + Original Hilltop Rarity Lists for the First Time Since 1967
Listed for the first time since its creation, 145 Dexter Street is a residence that offers an enduring masterpiece of mid-mod luxury. The 1960s-era residence was conceived by Ream Architects and informed by a distinct challenge: to maximize the square footage of the home without any unnecessary disturbance to the lot’s beloved trees and shrubs, bearing in mind that Denver’s subsoil expands and contracts with the area’s unpredictable moisture. For Richard Quinn, principal architect of 145 Dexter, the conundrum sparked the inspiration for a floorplan yet to be mimicked in modern times.
Using a system supported by 22 piers, the layout of the residence radiates from an open-concept living area surrounded by 18’-high expanses of glass that capture the surrounding landscape. This floor encapsulates the essence of the era through its own unique lens — sleek, linear forms that are contrasted by patterns of dappled light; a dual-sided fire feature that feels unobtrusive, despite its central location; a quintessential, yet approachable conversation pit ideal for everyday use. Additionally, walnut wood finishes and marble flooring emphasize the mindful approach of using natural materials.
“There are so many elements to the house that, if constructed at a different scale or in another location, could be overwhelming,” says Megan Harper of the Harper Miesen team at milehimodern, lead listing broker for 145 Dexter Street. “Instead, these elements all work together in harmony for a design that is at once iconic and yet, so peacefully livable.”
Above the main floor is a cross-shaped walkway suspended so that residents in every upper-level room can peer down into the living area from shuttered openings. Natural light is available from all four walls in each of these private oases. At the axes of the walkway are built-in planters that further emphasize the home’s biophilic nature. As each room extends off the central living area, the layout affords privacy and openness in the same breath — one of the many characteristics that Jim Ream, owner of Ream Architects, lists why 145 Dexter Street is the best residence jointly created by the firm and Richard Quinn.
“A rarity such as this deserves a new owner that will recognize its inherent value and historic richness,” continues Megan. “This home has endured Denver’s many changes in the past decades, and we hope that its breathtaking design will prevail through the decades to come.”
145 Dexter Street is a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom Hilltop residence listed at $2,500,000. To schedule a private showing or learn more about the residence, reach out to Megan Harper at email@example.com or directly by calling 720 341.5629.
