Classic Living. Modern Twist.

Step Into a True Contemporary Dream Home in Denver’s Bonnie Brae

Modern home design is often defined by minimalism, neutral palettes and simple, clean lines. But when these basic principles are combined with bold creative choices, striking standout features and the highest quality design details, truly special properties can be born. This Bonnie Brae home exemplifies the best of this exquisite modern design.

Selected as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver 2019 Dream House as part of the organization’s annual Dream House Raffle, this home is a feat of graceful living with a luxurious, contemporary twist.

“There are so many little details that make a house timeless that are prevalent in this home,” says Josh Behr, the property’s listing broker with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. “The balance between design and aesthetic gives this property a classic feel under the guise of a crisp modern theme.”

The home was originally built by Denver’s Forte Distinctive Homes, and Behr notes that one of the brand’s hallmarks is taking the classic tenets of homes in Denver’s finest neighborhoods and adapting them through a fresh, modern lens. For this property, that meant a stunning front façade that tantalizes the eyes even before entry. Within the highly relevant open concept floor plan, the main living, dining and kitchen areas are seamlessly connected, making it an ideal space for everyday living or entertaining. With large windows and easy access to the spacious backyard—complete with a cozy fire pit and outdoor eating area—the space allows for ample natural light and a beautiful blend of indoor and outdoor living.

Each room of the home has been meticulously designed to amplify livability and luxury, and there are numerous elements that make it particularly attractive in the Denver market. The vaulted ceilings throughout add space and volume, while the luxurious basement with its stunning wet bar and climate controlled wine cellar is the perfect entertainment hub. Perhaps most coveted is the spacious three-car garage, a true area find.

Masterful details abound in the home, from its classic white kitchen cabinetry to its steel blue kitchen island and beautifully painted trim moldings throughout.

“All of the elements of the home really highlight the quality of the build and its core design execution,” Behr says.

In short, it’s a truly special, truly unique Denver property gem.
