Many might wonder why we include a 1960s tract home in our tour this year but this one is truly special. Owner Charlotte Voitoff purchased the ranch style home in 1968 and it exhibits her artistic sense and creativity, and love of gardening. Perched on a ridge that descends to the Steamboat Ditch, the city view from the rear of the home is stunning. The kitchen has a large greenhouse window that brings the outside in. The basement includes an art studio, bedroom and bath. Entering the home, you are immediately aware that an artist and collector lives here. Charlotte passion is art of all types. To the rear of the home is a large deck, overlooking an incredible garden. Flowers and plants of all varieties thrive here along walking paths. Along the path is a real gem—a one-of-a-kind shed constructed entirely of vintage doors. We are certain this home will delight you with its warmth and eclectic charm.
