Carved into the hillside of a spectacular site in East Kessler Park, is one of the most extraordinary mid-century modern homes ever constructed. It sits on an acre of land, so quietly nestled in the trees, that it could possibly be overlooked. It is this understated presence that makes the home so intriguing.

1939 W. Colorado Blvd. was designed by noted and prolific architect, Hoke Smith, as his own home for his wife and five children. Completed in 1939, this neoclassical home with one-story side wings features a full façade porch accented with hand turned columns, elaborate crown moldings, and red oak floors. The roof is made of handsome Ludowici clay tile, renowned for its beauty and durability. The heart of the house is the grand central oval-shaped staircase, which builder Roland Pelt has been known to say was the most difficult project he was ever required to build.
