"Old School" Living with "New School" Charm

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with The Thayer Group 023259

Ever drive through a quaint town while taking a summer road trip and say "boy, it would be so cool to live in this town?"  23 years ago, my wife did just that while driving home from CU Boulder to Albuquerque to visit her parents.  She got off I-25 at exit #181 and drove down Wilcox St. in Castle Rock.  And that was a drive she would never forget.  9 years later, when we moved from Albuquerque to the Denver area, she HAD to show me how "totally cute and quaint" this little town of Castle Rock was!  So we got off I-25 and drove down the main street, lined with shops and restaurants, businesses, and town hall - she was right, it was a really cool place!  Lucky for us, we were able to find a house for rent, right off of the main (Wilcox) street.  A charming Victorian - we absolutely loved living in "downtown" Castle Rock.  

We were able to walk to breakfast at the B&B Cafe every Sunday morning, or to the grocery store down the way.  We walked to Starlighting in November and immediately knew this was the town in which we wanted to raise our family.  15 years later - we are still here and have 2 awesome boys!

Now it's your chance - experience historic downtown living at it's finest.  This large home is only 5 years old.  The house is built on one lot, and the yard takes up a second lot - giving it one of the largest living spaces downtown.  Featuring 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, including a finished basement, and huge gourmet kitchen, you can walk to the pool located just across the street.  Or, spend the day gardening in your own garden, playing basketball in the huge driveway, or collecting eggs from your chickens that live in your heated chicken coop.  This is THE home for newlyweds, families or anyone who loves the charm of living in a quaint town like Castle Rock.
