Welcome to Mill Creek Park

One of the best kept secrets on the Front Range is Mill Creek Park.  Located just ten minutes from Idaho Springs, Mill Creek Park is the ultimate in mountain living with easy access to Denver, Evergreen, Golden, and many of Colorado’s popular ski areas.  Mill Creek Park is so close to town that many area residents commute to the western suburbs.  Why not?  It’s just 30 minutes into to town.

2663 Mill Creek Road is a perfect example of what Mill Creek Park has to offer.  Just a few steps from the rushing waters of Mill Creek and with a private pond, this spacious A-frame home is both spectacular and comfortable.  Imagine a cold drink on the deck while you relax to the sounds of the fast flowing creek.  Or, get cozy on the couch by the fireplace, the falling snow visible through the two-story glass wall.

An over-sized master bedroom, with an on-suite bath, provides an extra space to relax and read by the fire burning stove.  Upstairs, a massive loft has room enough for a another bedroom, as well as a family space.  A small alcove with a window is a perfect spot to play or just find an well-stuffed pillow to enjoy the ambiance.  On the lowest level, a private guest suite, with an on-suite bath, is both roomy and rustic.  The walls are paneled with reclaimed wood.  Another wood burning stove can warm even the coldest winter night.  Sliding doors open to the creek below.

The garage is an over-sized one-car (with really room for two) that open to a huge workshop.

Of course, the main feature of 2663 Mill Creek Road is the  1.3 acre lot.  Aspen and soaring pine trees surround the house.  The sound of the creek, which runs year round, is intoxicating.  A large private pond is a ideal spot for a family picnic.  You might even spot a trout or two.

Mill Creek Park is a small community of homes that share a newly updated community water system.  This mountain enclave is less than three miles from I70 on a paved and plowed road.  It’s almost hard to believe that there’s a Starbucks just a few minutes away.  Shopping and dining are less than ten minutes away in Idaho Springs or up the road in Georgetown.

This home is currently for sale.  A comprehensive home inspection has been completed and is available on-site  List price is $495,000.  Owners are willing to consider all offers.

5763 S. Olathe in Centennial

Few neighborhoods in the Metro area deliver the bang-for-the-buck like the Piney Creek neighborhood in Centennial.  Located just south of popular Smokey Hill High School, Piney Creek is close to main streets Parker Road, Orchard, and Buckley.  E470 and I225 are just minutes away.

The homes in Piney Creek are spacious and well-appointed, with lots of features.  5763 S. Olathe is a great example of what this neighborhood has to offer.  With three bedrooms and four baths, there’s room for the whole family.

The living room feels even larger than it is, with a high vaulted ceiling.  Architecturally, the design is a side-split.  The family room on ground level is open to the large, eat-in kitchen.  The master suite, two other bedrooms, and open loft occupy the highest floor.  A media room, complete with a movie screen is on the lowest level.  The mid-level also includes a private office.

Built in 1986, this Piney Creek home is a true reflection of its era, when buyers demanded big kitchens, large lots, three car garages, and lots of room to entertain.  The private backyard has a built-in grill and 600 sq. foot patio.  In any neighborhood close to the inner city, this much house would command a price tag close to a million dollars (or more).

For growing families, this part of Centennial offers great Cherry Creek schools, including Indian Ridge Elementary, Laredo Middle School, and Smokey Hill High.  Lots of shopping and recreation, including a neighborhood pool are all close by.
