Historic Hampton-Barnes House

April 7th, 2011 Posted in Architects, Cool Find

This unique Usonian house was the personal home of architect Jacques Hampton. Completed in 1951, Hampton only lived here until 1954 when he sold the home to acclaimed philosophy professor, Hazel Barnes. In 1965, Barnes and her partner added an architecturally sensitive second floor addition designed by well known Boulder architect, Charles Haertling. Due to its rich local history in both architecture and residents, the Hampton-Barnes House was designated a Boulder Landmark in 2008.

The house is a 3bd/2ba with approximately 1800 square feet, priced under $500k. There is no garage, but it does have secured storage space.

    My dad, Jacques Hampton is the one who designed and built the house. In 1949 he and my mom were living in a tent community while he built the house. I was born in 1949 and lived with my older brother David (born1944) and my sister Suzy (born 1951).

    He designed the house so that when the sun hit Boulder Brook the light reflections waved on the living room ceiling.

    I love seeing the photo, it has been years since I have been by the house (I live in NH for the past 26years) My nephew Tim Hampton sent me the link and he and his family live in Denver

    I’m one of the city’s historic preservation planners here in Boulder and would love to learn more about your father’s work. If you see this, would you email me at cameronm@bouldercolorado.gov?
