Go Big

Attention Leafers!  If the question is..."Where is the best color for Autumn Aspens?"  ASPEN!  Go Big or stay home!
On one of the most beautiful September weekends that Colorado has ever experienced, we took a little ride to Aspen for lunch, joined by the infamous Castle Pines Village Motorcycle Club!
The club, founded in the last century, is strong in numbers and strong on fun.  They left the beauty of the Village (no color there yet as the gambel oak is just beginning to turn crisp orange) for the high country.  There journey took them through the Vail Valley up to Beaver Creek and from Minturn through Leadville, over Independence Pass to the final beauty destination, Aspen!  The group dined at the Bottom of Nell, of course, after touring around the city that is the place to be seen.  Sound like fun?  It is and you can live that dream life too.

Available for an unbelievable price is 2715 Castle Glen Place, the perfect home that allows you to lock and leave for the hills on your Harley or your vehicle of choice.  Castle Pine Village is located just 10 minutes from the Park Meadows shopping area off of C470.  In fact, the location to C470 and E470 makes it the one neighborhood in Denver with easy access to Denver's International Airport as well as I70 up to the mountain playgrounds of Vail and Aspen.  The 24 hour controlled access community with emergency service vehicles and a fire department on site brings peace of mind for your home and your family.

The home at 2715 Castle Glen Place is just under 6000 square feet, with most of the living on one level.  There is an over-sized 3 car garage, perfect for cars and motorcycle parking, and an extra lot to protect mountain and golf course views.  The price is also unbelievable...$ 1,275,000...match that in any other luxury community.

Go Big, don't stay home and call for an appointment to see this gorgeous home.  It is available at this take your breath away price, just like the autumn color.

Where Do The Pros Play?

ShareThis
The BMW Championship PGA Golf Tournament is in town and the field is studded with stars named Rory and Bubba and Phil and they arrived early in the week to acclimate to Colorado's Rocky Mountain highs.  Begs the question, where do the players play?  On Day 1 of the tournament the players begin their work week, Thursday is their Monday and golf playing becomes golf working.  Where were they on this Labor Day holiday?  Playing at the other course...
The Castle Pines Golf Club in Castle Pines Village, once known for hosting the famous International Golf Tournament, a favorite among winners such as Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson, so much so that they were spotted playing over the holiday weekend.  The players love to play at Castle Pines because of the serene nature of the course, designed amongst the centuries old Ponderosa Pine trees and gambel scrub oak.  The course is unique, a mountain course with a PGA championship challenge, each hole is a private playground.
One of the perks of living in a community such as Castle Pines is the golf, while not every resident plays golf every resident appreciates the natural open space that two Jack Nicklaus signature 18 hole private clubs provide in the 2800 acre village.  One does not need to play golf to appreciate the benefits of the game, a gentleman's game where courtesy and manners are the expected norm and dress codes still exist.  Golf is international by nature, so names like Choi and Garcia are as celebrated and respected as Scott and Watson.  Golf is a peaceful celebration of talent and skill.
Nurture your appreciation by viewing one of the most prestigious homes that is currently for sale in Castle Pines Village.  The home at 2715 Castle Glen Place is situated along the first fairway of the Castle Pines Golf Club's International course.  It is sited on not one but two Glen lots with uninterrupted views of the mountains and course, a pristine setting at a reduced price of $ 1,350,000.  The home is designed for maintenance free living and an easy breezy lifestyle.  The main floor master and open living floor plan is ideal as a main or seconday home.  There is a state of the art wine cellar and wet bar in the lower level that leads out to two patios that highlight the views of the golf course and mountains.  There is a 3 car over sized garage with luxury finishes.  This property has it all so come visit, you may chance a peek at Ernie teeing off on #1!

This house will be open on Sunday September 21 from 1-4!

Pop on by our location, location, location for this Fourth of July weekend which happens to be starting in 5,4,3,2 and we're off..
unless you are currently stuck in the I 70 "borridor".  Head west my fellow patriots, or maybe a little southwest, towards Castle Pines Village for a glorious few days in a foothills community.  The Village of Castle Pines is a short 20 minute ride down the other corridor that actually moves a regular flow of traffic.  It sits just before the town of Castle Rock, elevation is 6280 and boasts bluebird skies, wildlife, hummingbirds and gambel oak, not to mention two world class Jack Nicklaus golf courses.  This weekend there will be a Fourth of July bike parade and bar-b-que, events at the three outdoor swim pools, golf events and tournaments at both golf courses.  The best event is an Open House at 2715 Castle Glen Place held on Sunday, July 6 from 1-3 pm.

This exquisite home sits on two Glen lots that can be easily observed from the drone video on this website.  The site is on the first fairway of the celebrated Castle Pines Golf Club's International course.  Many a touring pro has observed the beauty of the outdoor living spaces of this property from their second shot to the green...so stop on by and become a piece of history or make your own history by making this home your own!

If you go, take I 25 south to Exit 187, Happy Canyon Road, and proceed west to the first and main entrance.  A cordial Emergency Services Officer will allow public access for Open House attendees, and will provide easy directions to the property.  Look for the Open House signs along the way!

Happy Fourth Everyone! posted: July 3, 2014

#ThrowBackThursday

ShareThis
Throw BackThursday and this home on VASSAR LANE stirs the nostalgia.  Close your eyes and picture a child's linen dress drying in the sun on a line that stretches the width of a nearly half acre lot...think you are back in the fifties?  Want to get back to that feeling or thinking?  The backyard of this home will fire the amygdala and send you daydreaming back to summer nights filled with freeze tag, bbq briquets, croquet mallets and... want s'more?  The southern facing lot is summer perfection with morning patio breakfasts lingering into lazy afternoon hammocks and evening sunset suppers al fresco...mmmm!
This is it, Martha...bring it on!

The interior does not disappoint either!  The architectural design calls for pitched wood ceilings with wood beams, planked wood walls and windows flooding sunshine throughout.  The kitchen is open to the great/living room, a formal dining room offers a cozy wood burning fireplace, there is even a main floor bedroom!  The style is artist retreat or mountain contemporary or uniquely cool.  The neighborhood is a hidden gem, with homes on large lots in the heart of Denver yet within the Cherry Creek School District.  Minutes from the Yale Light Rail station, the Highline Canal, University Hills shopping, Eisenhower Park, Wellshire Golf and the sweetest farmer's market in the city.

In this world of cookie cutter shapes and sizes along with cookie cutter/builder delivered homes on cookie sized lots, this home on Vassar Lane offers the unique and custom quality of years and ideas gone by.  The architecture and finish are custom,  the lot is unquestionably a "hard to find" urban feature. 

Stop by and visit at the Open House on Sunday May 18th
from 2-4 pm!

Spring In Your Step

ShareThis
Need to add Spring to your step, or personality?  Try a drive around the older Denver neighborhoods and take a blossom tour, there has never been a prettier Spring in Denver!  Buzzing through Denver Country Club is not only a trip down memory lane but a close second to the Botanical Gardens display of Spring flowers.  This will fire all the senses and jump start that allery season, but what a show!
Best in show, however, is two blocks short of Washington Block and a half block closer to Heaven.  Touring through that "hood" I hesitated and stopped at a SOLD listing from a year back and found my delightful buyer battling the wind to tend to her spring planting.  Blew me away, and I am not talking the wind!  I knew that this creative and artistic Buyer in collaboration with her artist/mother muse would transform this bit of "old town Aspen" Victorian into a showpiece.  

They began with transforming the free standing garage into a casita that also functions as an art studio.  Many of the furnishings in the casita were transplanted from the Santa Fe abode and guest house..think Grant Corner Inn meets Denver.  The casita is filled with original paintings by the Buyer/Owner's mother and contributions from other artists.  They added a fireplace tot he casita and a large palladium style picture window adding light that plays with the color of the art.

The gardens are both whimsical and intimate, with several cozy corners for morning coffee or late afternoon wine.  Each garden cluster plays art and sculpture with annuals and perennials.   Antique mirror windows hang from various fences to reflecting the garden beauty, doubling the aesthetic pleasure.  Enchantment at every turn.

What a lift, added to my day.  Not only the chance to see a transformation of delight and personality to a home that already had great architectural style, but a chance to visit again with one of the most warm and intelligent clients that I have had the pleasure to know.  Thanks for the Spring added to my step! posted: April 30, 2014

EPIC WEEKEND FOR COLORADO

ShareThis
Wake up Ground Hog!  Get ready for the most epic weekend in Colorado's history.  You guessed it...two feet and counting of champagne powder in the high country and a Super Bowl win by the Denver Broncos.  Don't doubt, it's true. Doubters stay home.

Fact:  Predictions for snow fall amounts measuring feet began on Wednesday, ample time to wax and ride the corridor to the world class ski resorts of Colorado.  Fresh tracks in knee deep powder, it's still snowing so tracks refresh faster than this Mac.  Plenty of time remains to get there so dust off the Fat Boys and fet ridin'.

Fact:  Predictions are for a Bronco Super Bowl win by many odds makers.  If Super Bowl is an unchecked item on your bucket list, then get moving because the game is Sunday!  Go big or stay home...no one does it better than NYC, not even Omaha!  The game is in Jersey but the fun is in the city.

Fact:  Bronco win you predict?  This weekend is the 2014 Chinese New Year, the year of the HORSE!  Any more questions?

More Facts:  Colorado is one of the prettiest states in this great union and Denver is one of the greatest cities.
With over 300 days of sunshine, more parks than any other city, 5 local professional sports teams, and our own symphony, ballet company and opera company along with a performing arts center that brings Broadway musicals to the heart of downtown.  Denver is a young and vibrant town, most of the population is of the Gen age...but the Boomers are boomerangin' back for a Denver's  retirement lifestyle.  Denver is the city of the future and I am available to show you a few of the highlights from farm to table restaurants, park venues, local wine shops and brew pubs, and plenty of hiking, biking, skiing, golfing, angling and I have run out of space.

There are wonderful communities with a wide variety of 
homes to choose from, including new product that is selling quickly..pre-sales before ground breaking.  As a Denver native and over 30 years as a residential realtor, I know how to navigate this great city so contact me at...

Gan Aden Will Be Gone!

ShareThis
On February 27, Gan Aden will sell to the highest bidder at a Concierge Auction event.  The auction will be attended by pre-registered bidders and will include three bidding opportunities, one for 32 Albion, listed at $1,999,000 and the second for 31 Albion, listed at $10,000,000.  The third bidding opportunity would be to purchase both properties, that will definitely up the ante to the highest bidder.

Why auction?  Castle Pines Village is a unique community with several homes in the value range of 8 million upwards to over $20 million.  Some of the luxury homes that sit on 5 to 15 acres have never been offered for sale and likely will not be offered for years to come.  This is a chance to purchase that luxury home in a premier, gated golf course community that is located just 25 minutes from the cultural and sports mecca of downtown Denver.

Gan Aden sits on a heavily wooded and award winning landscaped lot with 32 Albion as its neighbor.  The landscaping was done my MARPA, the archtecture of Gan Aden is by Chris Davis and Sara Semple, Semple Brown.  

View the home on this website with beautiful drone shots of the grounds and Castle Pines Village or touch and see the properties by phoning 877-751-8051 for an appointment between 1 and 4 pm daily.

A Passport To...

ShareThis
The Passport is the official entry document needed to transport an individual and the Denver Art Museum does not disappoint.  Passport To Paris, the current exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, transports one from 2013 to pre Impressionism in France through the entire era.  The Hamilton wing takes on rival museums and is host to a record number of Monet paintings and drawings in one building.  The history of the era from Louis III & IV through the French Revolution and the Napoleon empire straight to the golden age of La Belle Epoque is uniquely told through the incredible Hamilton and Denver Art Museum collection.  Experience the Pissaros and Manets in a presentation that is breathtaking.  There are three significant rooms, Court to Cafe, the Drawing Room and the En Plein Aire collection.  As with all forms of transport, plan on a delay as you will find yourself floating in front of a Monet for several minutes or travelling back for another glance at the Sisley.  The collection was compiled by the museum's inspired curator Angelica Daneo and is a must see!

The Denver Art Museum is but one of the many cultural sites offered in the Denver area, nestled amongst the Clifford Still museum and near the Denver Center for Performing Arts and the Ellie Caulkins auditorium that is currently host to the Denver Film Festival; all just minutes from the landmark condominium building of Four Hundred East Third.  The location of Four Hundred East Third is ideal, as a primary home in the city without the inner city, or a secondary home for Coloradoans who cannot resist the lure of the mountains seen from most units.

Available now is a two bedroom, two bath unit with sweeping views from the southeast to Pikes Peak and west to Mt Evans.  The unit has two secured underground parking spaces and amenities such as a concierge, fitness center, business and entertainment rooms and two guest suites available for family and friends taking in the cultural events in Denver.

Call for an appointment to see this incredible value, the Cherry Creek alternative.
