House Portrait of a Denver Ranch Home

Transformation of a Denver home – inside and out!

I had pretty well wrapped up my series of portraits of Denver homes but decided to review the collection one more time. There were Victorians, Tudors, lots of Craftsman, Colonial Revivals, Spanish Revivals, Cape Cod, Dutch Renaissance a few tasteful contemporary homes. . . then it stuck me, there was no Ranch style home!  And yet, Denver, like all bigger cities across the USA, has an abundance of this practical, family oriented home.  Ranch homes sometimes get dismissed as common cookie cutter homes you would expect in equally bland suburbs. But this is absolutely not the case if you look a little closer.

Ranch homes can not only be stylishly stunning, but very welcoming too. Especially if the right owner comes along.  So I decided to find the perfect Ranch home to add to my Denver House Portrait Collection.   I found just the place, tucked away in the leafy neighborhood of Southmoor Park. As is customary, when I am in the final stages of the painting, I leave a note for the owners, asking if they would like to view the painting.  Kara contacted me and was excited to set up a phone appointment.  Here is the painting I showed her!
