It’s not often you can find an affordable condo close to both downtown Golden and the Colorado School of Mines campus. This 2-bedroom, 1-bath, 875-sq.-ft. condo at 1221 Illinois St. #1B, however, fits that description precisely. The $200/month condo dues covers trash and recycling removal, water, sewer, heat, insurance, building maintenance, and one reserved parking space. The building manager lives in the 15-unit building, too. Compare the price of this unit with a 2-BR, 1-bath, 921-sq.-ft. condo 4 blocks from this one. It sold in May for $532/sq. ft. This unit is priced at $314/sq. ft. The difference is in the age and finishes. This is a 1955 building. The other unit was in a modern 2008 building. See a video tour at www.DowntownGoldenCondo.info. Co-listed with Andrew Lesko, who can be reached at 720-710-1000. Listed at $275,000.
