When you look at new construction homes in the Denver area, it’s easy to get blinded by the exquisite decorating and upgrades. But it’s just as easy to overlook a great Washington Park real estate deal just because of a seller’s old furnishings or outdated wallpaper. When it comes to house hunting in Washington Park, rely on the expertise of an experienced Denver Realtor like me – one who can help you see the potential but not be taken in by staging. By house hunting with me, you’ll figure out whether Washington Park is the right neighborhood for you.

Enjoying the park setting

Washington Park is a friendly Denver, Colorado neighborhood in south central Denver. Reinhard Scheutze, a famous architect, designed Washington Park in 1899. Since then, it’s provided 165 acres of paths, flowers, lakes and trees for residents. Whether you are moving to Colorado as part of a job change or retiring to the area, the hip Washington Park community will not disappoint.

Choosing a home with a view

If you choose to buy a high-rise condo, pick a unit that has a panoramic view of Washington Park. Homes and condos with balconies or windows overlooking Pike’s Peak are in high demand. If the home you tour has décor from the ‘70s but a great view, consider the fact that you will be decorating and remodeling after you purchase the home.

Opting for the modern condo

Washington Park is also home to a lot of modern condos in the half a million dollar price range. In order to get a bargain on a newly built condo or one that is less than 5 years old, you have to like the existing appliances, cabinetry, countertops and other finishes. Let your Realtor know if you rather have Quartz or granite countertops and whether you prefer light or dark wood for cabinetry and flooring. If you don’t have to change out major appliances and finishes, you will save money. Some upgrades that are universally appealing and valuable include hydraulic cabinet doors, balconies with gas lines for grills, kitchen island and over-sized tub.

In Washington Park, you will find everything from contemporary architecture to vintage homes that remind you of Norman Rockwell paintings. For more information on finding a luxury home in Washington Park or other fantastic neighborhoods in Denver, please contact me.
