Half-Duplex Overlooking Standley Lake with Mountain Views Just Listed by David Dlugasch

This half-duplex at 8581 Jellison Street is a patio home, requiring no exterior or grounds maintenance by owner. Snowfall over 2 inches is cleared by the HOA up to the covered porch and garage. On the top floor it has both a primary suite and guest suite, both with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. In the basement is a third bedroom with egress window and ensuite bathroom. The interior was entirely repainted prior to listing, and all new carpeting was installed. This home is move-in ready, for sure! The exterior will be repainted this summer by the HOA. In addition to its awesome views of Standley Lake and the foothills (including Longs Peak), this home is adjacent to a pedestrian/bike path adjacent the Highline Canal. It also has the largest backyard (maintained by HOA) in the subdivision. You can view a narrated video tour below or at www.ArvadaHome.info, then come to David’s open house Sat., May 13th, 11am-1pm.  Or call David at 303-908-4835 for a showing.

On the MLS, a Half-Duplex Is No Longer a ‘Single-Family Home’

The single-family home that David Dlugasch listed this week, a half-duplex, will not be found by buyers searching the MLS for single-family homes, thanks to a big change made in January 2020, when our MLS began conforming to a standardized set of property descriptors which all MLSs were expected to adopt.

Under the new system, a duplex must be listed under the “Multi-Family” Sub-Property type, with  “Duplex” under Property Structure. This replaced the earlier system, which had “Single-Family Attached” as well as “Single-Family Detached” as property types.

You can search by address and find the listing, but most people searching for homes are unlikely to include “multi-family” in their search criteria, even though they would love this single-family home if they saw it.

Just Listed: 4-Bedroom, 2-Bath Brick Ranch in Arvada

12082 W. 60th Place — Just listed for $400,000

This 1963 brick ranch has been lovingly maintained, although not particularly updated, since it was purchased by the seller in 1973. Most of the hardwood flooring throughout the main floor has been covered over the years by wall-to-wall carpeting, but the carpet has been removed from the main-floor bedrooms so buyers can see it. The full basement has a non-conforming 4th bedroom, 3/4 bathroom and laundry, plus a full-width family room. The name of the subdivision is Allendale, which is located east of Ward Road and south of 64th Avenue, making it super convenient to shopping as well as Interstate 70, while being an extra quiet neighborhood. You’ll hear no highway noise from your front or back yard! You can take a narrated video tour of this home, inside and out, and see all the interior photos at www.ArvadaRanch.info, then come to our open house this Saturday, October 24th, 11am to 2pm.
