Open House Sunday 1-3 pm at this 1937 Golden farmhouse for sale!

This 3-bedroom, 2⅓-bath home sits on a 0.45-acre lot atop the hill behind Colorado Mills at 13400 W. 10th Avenue, Golden. Built in 1937, it has a country feel to it, with its gravel driveway circling an old tree and its split-rail fencing. Every room has either birch or walnut wood paneling — not synthetic paneling, but real wood paneling, in-cluding on the slanted ceilings upstairs! The kitchen cabinets are not factory built, but built to fit from birch wood by the now-deceased master craftsman who lived here. The living room fireplace is set in a wall of Silver Plume granite, with a walnut mantel. Built-in cabinetry abounds, and there are even built-in desks and shelving (of birch) in the upstairs bedrooms. Originally on well and septic, the home is now on public water. The grounds include multiple fruit trees — pear, apple, apricot and walnut — and all the trees are maintained by Schulhoff under a yearly contract. I love this house, and you will too!  To fully appreciate it, watch my narrated video tour at http://www.WideAcresHome.com, or just click on this photo thumbnail:

Price Reduced on 3-Bedroom Golden Townhome

Originally priced at $350,000, this 3-bedroom, 3-bath townhome is now priced at $344,000. It has many virtues, including the best mountain view in the subdivision. With its low turnover, you can tell people are happy living here, and it’s super convenient. Colorado Mills, a medical center, a community swimming pool and tennis court, Kyffin Elementary School, Red Rocks Community College and light rail are all close by. These townhomes are well built too and suprisingly quiet, given the proximity to I-70 and U.S. 6.  See more pictures and a narrated video tour at www.GladiolaTownhome.info.

Prices Reduced on 2 Homes Near Downtown Golden

One of those is 538 Canyon View Drive in Canyon Point Villas, a small community of paired homes within walking distance (via pedestrian bridge) of Clear Creek, the Golden Rec Center, downtown Golden and the Colorado School of Mines. There’s a city maintained park with playground within the subdivision, and Mitchell Elementary is just a few blocks away. This 3-bedroom, 2-story unit is nicely isolated from the noise of Highway 93 to Boulder and Highway 6 to Denver or the mountains. It’s in move-in condition with all new stainless steel kitchen appliances, and new windows throughout. It has new paint top to bottom, inside and out. Take a narrated video tour at www.CanyonPointVillas.com, then call me.

The second listing is 906 Homestake Drive, the 3-bedroom home shown at left. The furnace and A/C, washer, dryer and dishwasher are all new. The tenants’ lease ends July 31 and they are moving, so plan on August possession. The Colorado School of Mines is a ½-mile stroll on sidewalks along quiet residential streets. Downtown Golden is just a few blocks further. Because one of the tenants has a condition making her especially vulnerable to Covid-19, in-person showings aren’t allowed, but our narrated video walk-through at www.GoldenTownhome.com provides a complete showing experience. You’ll be able to tour the home immediately after submitting a contract and before submitting earnest money.
