If there’s any house for which the mantra “location, location, location” applies, it would be this one at 2976 S. Garrison Way in Lakewood. It has one of the best lots you’ll find backing to the Bear Creek greenbelt, with a gate connecting its amazing backyard to a walking path into the open space. And because of its elevated location above that greenbelt, it also offers great views of the mountains to the west. The home has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 3,132 square feet. You’ll love the hardwood floors and granite counters. It faces southwest, providing excellent shading for its flagstone patio during summer afternoons. That flagstone patio is truly a work of art — so much so that I plan to hire the same Vietnamese contractor to landscape my own backyard! In addition to backing to that greenbelt, the home’s cul-de-sac is across the street from Rampart Park, one of Lakewood’s nicer neighborhood parks.
