South Highlands Sloans Lake (West Colfax) Natural Serene Home FLOODED with LIGHT! 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms – FHA 203k Masterpiece on a Budget Denver Colorado
This natural and serene new construction home is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE small home I have helped a client buy all year. It is not large, it is not pure luxury, but this home has a feel and a soul that is so rarely captured in this amount of square footage. As a Realtor, I try to give my opinons to client from a neutral (Real Estate Professional) perspective, without influencing them too much with my personal taste. From the minute I walked into this home, I knew it was special. It took an incredible amount of effort not to tell my client she was crazy not to make an immediate offer. This home had SOUL. The Sellers purchased this property with an FHA 203k loan a few years back, and actually rebuilt the entire home keeping only a small portion of the original foundation. While the FHA 203k rehabilitation loan is much more restrictive now, the Sellers took full advantage of it at the time. The exterior of the home is quite unasuming, but the interior evokes a sense of peace, naturalness, and reflective space. It is influenced by South America – Guatemala to be exact. The hand trowled walls and teak floors speak to its South American influence. While the Sellers chose many upgrades including cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances & granite countertops (and even a 2 car garage!), the home has a truly understated feel and a comfortable elegance not commonly found in similar transitioning/gentrifying Denver neighborhoods.
If I was house hunting in the Sloans Lake, Highlands, or West Colfax neighborhoods in this market, I’m not certain I could find an more exquisite and pocket-concious buy. Can you believe this home was purchased for under $180,000? Yes, it is true. This home is steps from the new light rail (west corridor), a few minutes walk from Sloans Lake, a couple minutes drive to downtown, and in the heart of an active & exciting reenergized neighborhood. One more item of interest…this home was purchased by the Sellers as part of the Good Neighbor Next Door program, which benefits Teachers, EMTs, Firefighters, and Police Officers in Denver Colorado. It is an incredible program. Call me for more details and to see if you could qualify for the Good Neighbor Next Door Program. Rachel Betz Real Estate 303-534-5000
I LOVE this house. Congratulations Yana – I’m a bit jealous! I might want to negotiate a first right of refusal when you want to sell…
