Ready to get out of the City, and live on some acreage? Larkspur is located about 40 minutes South of Denver, so it is an easy commute. There are pine trees, mountain views, Colorado landscape and wildlife everywhere! What you won't find is any drive through fast food joints! Castle Rock is a short jaunt (about 15 minutes if you have to stop for deer crossing) and can enjoy many different dining and shopping options! Driving around the area, it is not unusual to find herds of deer, and many residents out walking their dogs. You will find these residents will gladly wave at you like you were another resident. Larkspur offers many properties on half acres to 70+ acres depending on your budget. You will even find a few homes built into a mountain!
Larkpur's elevation is 6,726, so a bit higher than Denver proper. Residents see a bit more snow than the City.
You will find Perry Park West of Highway 105 in Larkspur, nestled up against the foothills. The red rock formations are gorgeous, and offer a perfect back drop.
You will find homes on smaller lots (half acres), some on major acreage(70+ acres), and most are on 1-acre lots. You will see many new custom homes being built in the area also, with some lots for building available. The Country Club has a beautiful lake, and is stunning in the spring, summer and fall. It was pretty quiet when I took the photos below. There was even some residual snow leftover.
Whether you want acreage or views, you will find homes nestled among the trees, or high on a hill with stunning views. There is home for everyone with many different upgrades and amenities! The best part of home searching in Larkspur, you definitely won't find "cookie cutter" homes!
I just listed a beautiful ranch home on .98 acres (corner lot) with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, an over-sized 3 car garage (with RV parking) and 4,646 total finished square feet including the walk-out basement. These homeowners have done such beautiful upgrades to the home, and definitely has an aura of Colorado ambiance. This home is priced at $815,000.
There is also a another Golf course community in Larkspur worth checking out -
Bear Dance is closer to I-25, and has gated communities with multi-million dollar properties on small acreage and others up to 70+ acres. There are homes in the Bear Dance area, Sage Port and Sterling Pointe that are half acres to one acres yet surrounded by trees, and Colorado landscape.
Not much happening at the golf course, and the club house/golf shop are not yet open. I took these photos back in March, and the golf course, club house and golf shop are all open now.
The Renaissance Festival is held in Larkspur every summer drawing many residents from Denver and even Colorado Springs/Monument.
If you have thought about getting out of the City, the lack of hustle & bustle & noises, come and visit Larkspur, and enjoy the wildlife and serenity it offers. Give me a call if you would like to know more about the area.
