Beds: 2Bath: 1Sq. Ft.: 1088
Location, Location, Location! This 2,881 sq ft home is located at the intersection of Carr and Leota, close to great schools and the Rec Center. The one acre lot backs up to the South Platte River, offering hiking through the trails that wind along the river bank. The home features an attached garage, and a second two-car oversized detached garage, with an excellent shop space and ample storage with rack space and an attic. The home itself is tasteful and elegant, with a built-in entertainment center with plenty of shelving to display all your collectibles and framed photos. The gas fireplace makes the living room cozy and warm in winter months. The kitchen offers a large island, granite countertops, and beautiful cabinetry. The kitchen is open to the living room, making these two large areas seem even bigger, and allows those involved with meal preparation to feel like they are still part of the gathering. There is a separate formal dining room in addition to the in-kitchen dining area. There is also a family room that features a wide curved wall and French doors. The Master suite has a spacious bathroom with dual vessel sinks, a jacuzzi tub, a tiled shower, and his and hers walk-in closets.
Two bedrooms upstairs share a “Jack and Jill” bathroom. A third uncloseted room was intended as a reading room, but it is currently used as a guest bedroom. There is also a “bonus room” off of one of the bedrooms that was used by the original owner as a sewing room, but is currently used as another small guest room. The attic provides tremendous storage space.
This home has beautiful landscaping. The backyard features a formal English garden-style upper yard. Brick stairs take you down to the lower yard in the back half of the lot. A beautiful bricked trail winds around mature pines and fruit trees, giving the backyard a charming “secret garden” feel. The back yard fencing has brink pillars supporting a wood privacy fence. The fence has 36” of concrete under it for the entire perimeter of the yard, making it impossible for dogs to escape by going over or under the fence. This fence, if built from scratch today, would cost well over $100,000 and would be a major construction undertaking. It is both imposing and beautiful, and contributes to the private English garden and English cottage influences found in the architectural elements of the home. This home is warm and welcoming, providing a wonderful setting for large family gatherings.
