This home at 956 S. Iola was a good value with its price under $175,000. While it lists as a condo, it’s really more of a townhome.  It has an outside front door, back door, and small yard, the usual attributes of a townhouse.

At just over 1000 square feet, this unit is fairly spacious.  The main floor features a good-sized living room, a half bath, a large kitchen with an eating space, and a stacking washer and dryer in the closet under the stairs.  Just outside the sliding doors is a small, private yard with a patio and storage shed.  Off-street parking, with two reserved slots, is outside the fenced yard.

Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms.  Both have new carpeting and the landing at the top of the stairs has new vinyl plank flooring.  The full bath has a new seamless surround and tub just refinished by Bathfitters.

Located a block east of Havana and a block north of Mississippi, the location is  very convenient.  Groceries, restaurants, and shops are within walking distance.  RTD is a block away.

The monthly HOA fee includes heat, trash pickup, water, sewer, exterior maintenance, the roof, grounds maintenance, and structure insurance.

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.
