All of these historic Front Range homes were built before 1915. These historic Colorado Front Range homes are located in Denver Metro cities, as far north as Fort Collins, west near boulder, and as far south as Colorado Springs.
These historic homes along the Front Range of Colorado feature a variety of styles and architecture. Below are just a few of the common architectural styles that you will see with these historic homes.
Bungalows are traditionally one or one-and-a-half-story dwellings of horizontal orientation that combine style with simplicity and sound construction with affordability. The bungalow boom took off around the turn of the century when the burgeoning West brought notions of American independence, health, respectability, and importantly, a prevalent architectural style apart from the aristocracy.
The Geogrian style celebrates symmetry, proportion, and balance. Mathematical ratios were used to designate windows, and classical modes of architecture were referenced through decorative touches from ancient Greece and Rome. Red brick walls, white trim and portico entrances are among the Georgian style’s distinctive features.
The American Foursquare style is as boxy and spacious as its name suggests, featuring the Prairie architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. This type of home will likely feature a simple box structure, two-and-a-half stories, a low-hipped roof, full-width porch, dormer, and for exterior materials—brick, stone, stucco, concrete, or wood siding.
The Dutch Colonial style evolved into a linear floor plan as original single-room homes expanded outward via additions on either end (with chimneys typically taking up residence on one end or the other). Features include a broad gambrel roof reminiscent of a barn, double-hung sash windows with outward opening wood encasements, and a central horizontally divided doorway.
This style features multi-story rectangular floor plans, stuccoed walls, flat or low-peaked terra cotta and tile roofs, arches, and a lavish application of Spanish baroque details in the decoration of balconies, cornices, openings, and patios.
The Tudor style offers oriel windows—a bay window that emanates from the façade of the building is supported by brackets and does not touch the ground—paired strikingly together with the famous Tudor arch, a flattened pointed arch drawn from four centers and revising its predecessor, the steeply-pitched Gothic arch.
