Inspired!

ShareThis
Frank Lloyd Wright was quoted as saying that architecture is the "mother of all arts". When you see any of the many buildings and homes designed by Wright, the architect, you can't help think that any structure "inspired" by Wright would be a work of art. Belcaro is the setting for a Wright inspired home that is flawless in design and construction and ready for art. If Wright is considered the visionary for sustainabile architecture, this home is the offspring of that vision. Built with site sensitivity, the two story home was built around each of the several massive, towering pine trees. Constructed of natural stones and woods, the walls of windows and clear story windows capture the brilliance of Colorado's abundant sunshine. The linear nature of the home, with deep overhangs, harken back to many of the Wright homes that sit perched on lovely wooded lots. He was an enthusiast for local, organic materials and this nearly 7,000 square foot home does not disappoint. The home's interior design connects to living with art, floor to ceiling wall space and exceptional lighting for flat work as well as sculpture. This architectural work of art will launch to market mid-May and is co-listed with Peter Blank of Kentwood City Properties. Photos will be uploaded on several websites: www.milehimodern.com www.denverrealestate.com www.kentwoodcityproperties.com The home will be featured as well in the next issure of the new hip magazine MODERN IN DENVER. If you want to preview the home prior to market launch, connect with: Judy Fahrenkrog, judy@kentwoodcity.com or Peter Blank, Peter@milehimodern.com posted: May 9, 2011

Denver's got talent, and scoring more points at a national level than any other local player is the multi talented Kim Dawson. Locals in the Cherry Creek neighborhood might remember Kim as a budding oenologist, consultant on the varied grapes at the Vineyard. Kim's knowledge of wine is extensive and she served her customers with class and talent. Oh it was a sad day to not see her smile, or hear her opinion on the subtleties of a certain grape. As with all talents, Kim needed to follow her own dream to see where it would take her....and soon it will be a contract with a Sony record label. Kim is a member of the very local and extremely talented vocal group Urban Method. Urban Method has just advanced past Week 8 of Season 3 on the NBC hit show The Sing Off is a contest of a cappella groups singing varied selections from different genres. The judges are acclaimed grammy singers, Ben Folds, Shawn Stockman and Sara Bareilles and the critiques are centered on informed musicality. If you live in Denver, this is your new "Must See TV". If you don't live in Denver, then get here now. Denver is home to several music professionals and owns its own theatre company, opera company, ballet company, theatre company and symphony. Denver sports professional teams with talented names such as Broncos football, Avalanche hockey, Rockies baseball, Nuggets basketball and Rapids soccer. Denver is home to the world class Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the new Clyfford Still Museum opening on 11-11-11! In addition to all this talent, Denver's climate ranks among the best of all the major cities. This is the time to discover your inner talent in Denver. There has never been a better time to buy into the dream. For more information on homes, condos and townhomes in the mile high city contact me by email. judy@kentwoodcity.com.

The View

ShareThis
Zen philosophers have often said that the outward view, comes from within. Absolutely true when you step into 1551 Larimer, the penthouse at #3101. Upon entering this luxury condominium, with approximately 3000 square feet of contemporary living, the first thing that strikes the visitor is the view! The view is unique as it sweeps from Long's Peak all the way south to Pike's Peak and has east views back into downtown Denver....mountains and the city. These views can be observed from two large outdoor covered decks....imagine the fireworks. The condominium, the only unit with skylights, is located within Larimer Place. One of the original luxury high rises in lower downtown, Larimer Place still maintains a lower hoa than most buildings and is loaded with amenities such as a pool and tennis courts. Located across the street from the reknowned and historic Larimer Street with superior restaurants and shopping, this is the ultimate in city living. Observe the views from within this website by clicking on the photo of Larimer Place...you can't photoshop this! Or email me for an appointment to see the views in person at judy@kentwoodcity.com. posted: June 4, 2012

@Pending

ShareThis
What a day!  The Halloween tricks have begun and Google seems to be the target with early released earnings reports that dragged down the NASDAQ composite.  The untimely release was an error related to "fat thumbing" on an android.  Sound eery spooky?  Only terrifying if the bulk of your investment portfolio is tied into NASDAQ earnings, unless you enjoy the thrill of the roller coaster ride.

@Pending is a common term in the real estate industry.  When a home receives an offer that becomes contract with signatures from the buyer and the seller it is officially @pending a sale, but definitely not sold.  With such a low rate of inventory of homes for sale in many of the Denver communities, several offers are submitted during the @pending stage of the real estate contract.  During the @pending phase, all the contingencies are adressed and dates and deadlines move the contract closer to the closing table.  Some of the contingencies include financing, appraisals, surveys, review of title work and community documents, inspections and several additional contingencies pertaining on the needs of the purchaser.  This @pending is definitely different from sold, but with real estate this phase does not send the values of the homes within reach into a tailspin.

Real estate is still the most reliable investment and should remain a significant portion of an individual's portfolio.  The interest rates are extremely low, great for home buyers, but the inventory is also low.  Now is the time to get in the game and fat thumb a home for your @pending file.

Friends With Benefits

A recent 5280 Magazine article poked some fun at the Urbanite vs Suburbanite, or City Mouse vs Country Mouse. Many of the differences are obvious, for example a 20 minute drive for the Suburbanite is a daily occurence, many times twice daily and for the Urbanite it requires an overnight bag. The bicycle, eco-friendly and now super convenient with the BCycle Share program for the City Mouse. The bicycle for the Country Mouse is serious exercies dedication, a Tour de Workout. Take-out dinner? Not so simple for the Country Mouse, but the options are expanding. Take-out for the City Mouse is a challenging in the simple task of getting to a short list. The lifestyles are indeed varied and separate but having been both a Country Mouse, Castle Pines Village, and a City Mouse, Cherry Creek North it is the best of both worlds. Two different communities bringing out the best of the Colorado lifestyle, friends with benefits. For more information about these communities or others in the metro Denver area connect with www.judy@kentwoodcity.com I can find that pied a terre that is the perfect "city fix" or the estate home on a major league golf course. Choose one or the other or both! posted: April 25, 2011

Bespoke

ShareThis
Design After Dark, the annual fund raiser for the Design Council of the Denver Art Museum, was sold out on Friday night. Patrons from the art, architectural and design communities convened to admire each other's accomplishments as well as the auction items that represented "Bespoke". Bespoke is a term that describes a high degree of customization and involvement by the end user in the production of goods. In clothing it would represent more than custom tailoring, it involves the selection of fabrics and features as well as the custom measurement. Do you "bespoke"? The opportunity awaits with a great building site within Castle Pines Village. Set at the 10th green of the number one handicap hole of the Castle Pines Golf Club, the building site offers views of the golf course, ponds, mountains and the ponderosa pines. It sits at the end of the cul-de-sac on Indigo Way and encompasses close to two acres. This is the ultimate opportunity to bespoke your dream home in a dream setting. There are approved architectural plans, if you prefer to defer, however the lot itself is a cleared etch a sketch....a clean slate if you so desire. 89 Indigo Way sits in the heart of Castle Pines Village, a gated community of 2800 acres of ponerosa pines, scrub oak and relief. It is located approximately 20 minutes from the heart of Denver's urban circle. It is 10 minutes from major shopping at the Park Meadows Mall location at I-25 and C-470. It is less than 10 minutes from Sky Ridge hospital and medical center. For more information on Castle Pines Village or 89 Indigo Way, email me at judy@kentwoodcity.com. Do you bespoke? It's time! posted: February 13, 2012

Innovation

What do Secretariat and Steve Jobs have in common? Innovation. Secreatariat, with deep Colorado roots, was owned by Penny Tweedy. The innovation behind Secretariat was that the breeding empire that gave us Secretariat was built on broodmares recasting the destiny of horse racing. Steve Jobs' innovative brain changed the world and continues to change our world through innovations. One change to watch is the Articulated Naturality Web, which is the future of augmented reality. This will be the next renaissance in computer vision, taking the world as a scene through a smart phone and then allowing the user to see the elements within. It is totally 3 dimensional and reveals what you don't see in the flat. An example would be to take a picture of a hotel from the street, ANW will allow the user to go within a room and virtually see how it is laid out and the amenities. It can go within a commercial space in a building and articulate the interior by adding desks and workspace and then rearranging or modifying. This will change industries across the world. Check out the link to learn more at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnRJaHZH9lo.

What a ThursDAY!  The Halloween tricks have begun and Google seems to be the target with early released earnings reports that dragged down the NASDAQ composite.  The untimely releae was an error related to "fat thumbing" on an android.  Sound eery spooky?  It was only terrifying if the bulk of your investment portfolio is tied into equities earnings, or maybe you enjoy the thrill of a roller coaster ride.

@Pending is a common real estate industry term.  When a home receives an offer that becomes a signed contract complete with signatures, it is officially @pending a sale, but definitely not @sold.  With such a low rate of inventory of homes for sale in many of the Denver communities, back up offers are not uncommon during the @pending stage.  Properties priced correctly present high motivation for buyers anxious to get closed before the interest rates rise and inflation begins.  During the @pending phase of the real estate transaction, due diligence begins and the contingencies of the contract are addressed.  Contingencies vary from financing to appraisals, surveys and title work, inspections and review of documents upon documents.  The process itself can be tricky, and of course the devil is in the details.  Due to the set dates and deadlines, fat thumbing the droids are unusual.

Real estate is still the most reliable investment and should remain a significant portion of an individual's portfolio.  This is a great time for home buyers so get in the game and add a home to the @pending file.
