 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...

Laura's buyer is now the proud owner of this beautiful home in Parker!   Working with the big box company and an out-of-state title company that only works with email was a tough one.    Melody is very excited to start her next chapter in this beautiful home.   CONGRATULATIONS!  Laura Erwin's Buyer had her eye on this property, set a showing and was sure this was the home she wanted!   It was perfect for what she was looking for.  The home was built in 2000, has three bedrooms and three bathrooms with an attached two-car garage.   It is owned by a "buy-out" company, so she will get possession as soon as she closes in a couple of weeks.

These long-term clients are working on merging their family, as mom is feeling like she should not live by herself, and needed to find a home that would accommodate this couple and mom and each have their own living space.  We looked at a few homes, but this one stood out hands down.    There was more room above ground for this couple, and the right amount of space in the walk-out basement for mom.   AND the VIEWS!   It backs to Black Bear Golf Course, and the views are stunning from every floor in the home!    The yard is spacious and this couple has lots of plans! This home has 6 bedrooms, 5 baths and a loft with a 3 car garage built in 2007 by David Weekley.    This multi-generational family are looking forward to a closing in early November.

This cute home in Clarke Farms had multiple offers, but the Sellers accepted the one with the terms they were looking for.    The Sellers received offers considerably over list price.   The Sellers needed a longer close date plus a rent-back to coordinate their new home construction date, which the buyers were able to do.   Today they closed on this property, and will take possession in a couple of months.  Congratulations to these Sellers and Laura Erwin! Bright and open 3-bed, 3-bath home located in Parker's established Clarke Farms neighborhood!  Updates include new carpet, newer windows, and newer paint.   The main floor features a vaulted living area/flex space, a family room with fireplace, kitchen, dining area, laundry, and half bath. All three bedrooms and two full baths are loc...
