 The Town of Larkspur is located 40 miles south of Denver and West of I-25.   The town was incorporated in 1979 and today is known for the Renaissance Festival held every year in Larkspur and the Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground.   Most homes in Larkspur are on lots of one acre or more and surrounded by trees.   You will see lots of wildlife - deer, mountain lions, bears (brown & black), fox, coyotes and lots of birds.  Going to the grocery store will require a trip to Castle Rock, and depending on where in the town you live, it could be 15 minutes.   There isn't much in the "town", but a gas station, post office, three restaurants, and of course two golf courses with restaurants.   Bear Dance Golf Course is closer to I-25, and Perry Park Golf Course is on the West side of town. The po...

This property is now pending, and with an agent that wanted a 2nd home.   I knew this property would be perfect for the "lock and leave" buyer that wanted no maintenance.   This will be a pretty quick close, and the Sellers are looking forward to their next chapter. There are not many of these paired homes (26 total) in Anthology, so you don't see many come on the market often.   This two-story home is ready-to-move-in condition and shows beautifully.18326 E. Saskatoon PlaceParker CO  80134 This Anthology beauty has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms and a total of 2,477 square feet including the basement (95% finished).    This patio home has the largest lots in the area, with 5,227 square feet and backs to open space.     The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining as the living room, d...

 You will find this quaint town Southeast of Denver proper, and about 20 miles or 30 minutes.  It is easy to catch the light rail at Lincoln, if you work downtown, or somewhere along the line.    There are about 61,492 residents in the Town of Parker, and Main Street is a fun place to dine, listen to live music or enjoy the retail outlets. If you are looking to buy a home in Parker, there is quite a variety of home styles and neighborhoods.   You can buy a condo or a multi-acre ranch outside the city limits, yet just a few minutes into town.    Sales for June 2022213 homes sold ranging from $438,000 to $2,625,000 (200 sold last month) Average days on market - 11 days  Median days 5  (9 last month)Average sales price was $740,000  (last month was $744,500)Sellers saw 100.58% to list pric...

Denver has been in a drought once again, and fire danger is high.    A few cities in and around the Denver metro area have canceled firework shows.   Last year sparked several fires after displays.Being innovative, Parker has come up with a new idea -- and will present a drone light show.   In lieu of fireworks, this year's celebration will provide a 150-drone light show.  The 12-minute aerial display will start at 9:30 pm and feature multiple designs and choreographed movements from a fleet of drones set to patriotic music.    Drones will fly 400 feet into the air above Salisbury Park and be visible from up to two miles away, depending on the vantage point. Pack your blankets and lawn chairs and set up for an evening packed with family fun.   Salisbury Park will be open to attendees to...

Inhale peace - exhale your worries. Relax and rejuvenate in this 3bed 3bath mountain oasis with *breathtaking* views. Drive up the newly paved driveway to enjoy your slice of the Colorado mountain lifestyle and take in the beauty that surrounds you.  Pride of ownership is evident everywhere with less noticeable features like new Anderson windows, furnace, central air, and water softener to factors more visible like the recent pond and waterfall, replaced kitchen appliances, and the gas stove and fireplace.  You will appreciate being insulated from the world with stunning panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains and the Denver skyline - visible even from your basement!  If work beckons - a home office could easily be set up here.  For commuters or to access all the amenities one could desi...
