Somewhere on the other side of the national emergency over COVID-19, new buyers will move into a rambling 1960s custom multilevel in Jeffco that has features plenty of families wish they had now, including an acre of pretty ground with red rocks and views of the foothills.
Colorado is at a strange transition point this weekend, heading into a stay-at-home mandate at a moment when Realtors in areas like south Jefferson County are still reporting deals that involved multiple offers.
Three agents with Red Rocks Team at Your Castle Real Estate, keeping 10 feet between them, showed me 6500 Crestbrook Drive in Willowbrook, a neighborhood of large sites wrapping foothill red rock outcrops at the west end of Belleview Avenue, just as the statewide shutdown was being issued.
In the past week, says agent Jackie Yost, her team saw one nervous buyer pull a $520,000 listing from the market, while another home at $1.2 million went to contract after full-price competing offers. The winning bidder was locked up at their own place out in California, making a remote bid on what had been Willowbrook’s only home on the market.
Now this one becomes the sole listing there.
At $999,900, 6500 Crestbrook Drive is a five-bedroom/four-bath plan originally built in 1968, offered by a 20-year owner who works as a contractor and did a asteful remodeling of the kitchen and master suite.
“That’s a super price for Willowbrook,” says Yost, who with Todd Houghton and Kathleen Hanvey have a virtual tour up via their website and can arrange for you to get a look on-site after the stay-at-home order is lifted.
Yost points out that a real showing is the only possible way to get an idea of the views this home has.
Willowbrook, where all three agents live, is a mile west of C-470 at Belleview, with views and elbow room that belie its good freeway commuter access and nearby shopping.
You’ll see a multilevel layout that has over 4,000 feet of finished space including an eye-catching kitchen update with Corian counters and a hardwood island, an attractive master on the upper level with his-and-her vanities and a walk-in closet, a large family room with one of the home’s two fireplaces, and a finished lower level that has guest bedrooms and a rec room with a wet bar and a pool table that’s included.
Yost notes that Red Rocks Team is the top-selling company here, where Willowbrook residents pay homeowner dues of just $350 a year that gives access to private trails and event sites
When we’re all back on the road again, take Belleview west under C-470, then west a mile to Colorow Drive.
