The Ewing House – Edward Hawkins Mid Century Modern in Boulder – SOLD

06/25/2013

Anyone that follows the work of Edward Hawkins in the Denver area is familiar with Arapahoe Acres and his enclave of 124 unique mid century modern style homes. What few people realize is that during his reign in the area some individuals solicited his services and built MCM homes in other areas. This three bed, two bath home was commissioned by a Denver area ‘ad man’ and built in 1955 on the family farm in Lafayette, Colorado just outside of Boulder. Hawkins was chosen for his vision and his style is clearly evidenced in the home. The home sits on .66 acres allowing  for ultimate privacy or outbuildings.
