Everything and more from Denver’s newest Lakehouse17


Denver continues to grow steadily on a daily basis, from the people who move here to the buildings popping up all over town, our beautiful city continues to grow and develop into a modern city. People come here for the comfortable way of life, the luxury of the mountains and outdoor lifestyle mixed with the extensive career choices this city has to offer. Not to mention that great work-life balance that more and more people want to have, Denver is a city allows people to find that perfect space of enjoying their job while also enjoying what the city and surrounding areas have to give.


With Denver being an ever-flourishing city comes more and more new additions and not just any new additions, some of the most top-notch ideas and concepts are finding their way to our front doors. Denver is looked to as a leading city when it comes to many things culturally so it’s no surprise that our real estate market is also one that gets the good end of the stick when it comes to new real estate developments.


One of the latest new additions coming to Denver is a beautiful eclectically designed development called Lakehouse situated on the south shore of Sloan’s Lake. This 206 high-rise development allows options for penthouse, condominium and row home living. Along with some incredible views and outdoor living spaces over looking Sloan’s Lake, Lakehouse offers a wellness center, a lakeside terrace, community spaces, private underground parking and storage, bicycle shop and an organic farm.


The one really distinct thing about Lakehouse is that it is the first registered project in Colorado to pursue WELL building standard. So what is WELL?  It is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on human health and wellness. There are seven areas of the WELL building standard: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. WELL takes all of these things and marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research. All of this research and design make for a living environment that is used as a vehicle to support human health and well-being.


If you could find a place to live that supported your work and live vision, while helping keep you healthy and happy, wouldn’t you want to move in their immediately? I know I would! Give me a call today and let me set up a showing for you at this stunning development, see for yourself why this new spot is one of the most sought after living spaces in Denver. 



A Few Great Places to see the Fall Colors in Colorado

I think it is safe to say that fall is here even as we continue to have some days with temperatures in the high 80’s, the cool evenings and brisk mornings are letting us know the weather is changing. And it is just the weather changing, have you looked outside lately? The trees are all starting to change colors and if you have been watching the news or looking at your social media you have probably seen many beautiful pictures of the leaves changing all over the state. Colorado is known for our beautiful Aspen trees and the changing that takes place from the end of September into early October has many people heading to the mountains to see the incredible color transformations. It isn’t too late to catch these trees that turn into blazing fields of gold and below I have compiled a list of places to go visit as well as drives to take to see some of the best colors in the area.

Jump in the Car and Drive

 1.    Trail Ridge Road – U.S. Highway 34 between Estes Park and Granby traveling through and over the Rocky Mountain National Park is one for the books. The road rises all the way to 12,183 ft and has several scenic overlooks to take in.

2.    Peak to Peak Highway – Colorado highways 119, 72 and 7 from Black Hawk to Estes Park has many spots to actually pull over and take in stunning views of the Continental Divide with several stands of colorful Aspens.

3.    Boreas Pass between Como and Breckenridge – What used to be an old railroad bed is now a dirt road that offers phenomenal sightseeing of several Aspen groves.

Get out and Experience the Colors

 1.    Gunnison – This quant place is home to Kebler Pass, which boasts the largest aspen grove in North American. Start around Ohio Creek Road which passes some unique natural landscapes, including a series of abandoned ranch buildings, and enjoy some beautiful views.

2.    Maroon Bells – The iconic Maroon Bells are two towering 14,000-ft mountains nestled into the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness and are some of the most photographed peaks in North America. There are hiking trails a plenty so choose any and you are sure to find yourself lost in the golden Aspens.

3.    Telluride – It is a little bit of a drive but Telluride is one of the most beautiful places in the state and the colors up there are unmatchable during the fall. Take the free gondola ride for an incredible aerial view of the yellow fields of trees spreading for miles.

 It’s not too late to go on a drive or a hike to see the changing colors of fall and better to do it sooner than later, snow is just around the corner and has already been falling in the mountains! Make sure to grab a pumpkin muffin and your favorite hot drink for the road, happy fall everyone!
