Homeowners with modern design sensibilities often find themselves sacrificing style for kid-centric living spaces. But at 34 Polo Club Circle, a new $6.5-million listing in the Polo Club, the 8,000 square feet of living space is as streamlined and modern as it is family friendly.
“Sometimes a home with a beautiful modern aesthetic can feel cold,” says listing broker Josh Behr of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. “But here, the owners have created a warm and inviting space where you can actually kick back and relax.”

Designed by Nest Architecture and built by Boa Construction, the home’s open-concept living spaces are light and bright, with white-oak floors, crisp white walls and a freestanding see-through fireplace. The “five-plus” bedroom layout allows a bonus room to serve as a homework station or extra bedroom.
Floating staircases connect the home’s three levels, and a metal spiral staircase connects a poolside study to an upstairs loft. In the super-sleek kitchen, a massive concrete countertop is accented with a thick slab of wood that was cut from an old tree on the property. A room-length wall of commercial-grade cabinetry hides every trace of mess behind tall white doors.
Bathrooms (seven in total) are tricked out with high-drama finishes, from Day of the Dead-themed wallpaper in a powder room, to funky industrial faucets in a colorful kids’ bathroom, to a dramatic square tub in the master bathroom.
Designed to celebrate the treed, three-quarter-acre lot—with unique landscaping by the family’s favorite European landscape architect—the architecture emphasizes views in every room. First-floor living spaces open to lawns, spacious patios and a saltwater pool via sliding and folding-glass doors.
The privacy and serenity of the setting belies its convenient location, just a five-minute drive from Cherry Creek. Private security adds to the appeal.
With a $6.5-million asking price, 34 Polo Club Circle is ripe for a specific buyer. As for the rest of us? It’s a free glimpse of how a modern design can work for a Colorado family.
