Considering the generous size and number of public spaces, only four bedrooms is a bit of a surprise. The fenestration system is most satisfying in conjunction with stone piers and floors,and quasi-traditional paneling.
I'd worry only about the exterior boards holding up over time; they are cupping a bit already. What substitute ? The corresponding interior board walls look great. But imagine those upper walls being exposed-aggregate concrete ?

Found this interesting home on Zillow with some Wrightian touches. Were there any students/apprentices who had a practice in the Denver area in the late 60's? Too bad the interior wood has been painted--or so I assume. The site is on a ridge with a fairly steep drop off to the west, which you can't discern from the photos. This neighborhood is a few miles south of the Red Rocks Amphitheater and contains rock formations similar to the famed amphitheater, but on a smaller scale. Thus the use of red sandstone on the house is appropriate for the area. Thanks!
Bold forms. The kitchen bay doesn't quite settle for me, on the exterior, but seems worth the trouble inside. The other interior cylinder is a bold mystery . . .
Don't love the stairs mummified in gray carpet !
There was a Taliesin apprentice who ended up in Colorado. Geiger knew him, but I cannot remember his name. A quick scan of the Directory shows Stanford Adams at Palmer Lake, CO (@ Taliesin 1959-60, after Geiger was long gone, so probably not him) and Fredric A. Benedict in Aspen, CO (1938-41). Could be Fred, but frankly, I don't know.
One house an apprentice built in CO was high in the mountains with a wall of floor-to-ceiling, butt-ended slabs of glass looking over a declivity into the snow-capped Rockies.

looks like it has been highly altered.
