Town of Larkspur CO - Market Update October 2019

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373 DRE# ER40011786

 

The Town of Larkspur is located 40 miles south of Denver and West of I-25.   The town was incorporated in 1979 and today is known for the Renaissance Festival held every year in Larkspur and the Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground.   Most homes in Larkspur are on lots of one acre or more and surrounded by trees.   You will see lots of wildlife - deer, mountain lions, bears (brown & black), fox, coyotes and lots of birds. 

 

 

The population of Larkspur is quite low, keeping "traffic" to a minimum.  Some in the neighborhood of Sage Port have half acres, and in Douglas Park, there are some up to 70 acres.  Homes are on the West side of Larkspur are nestled at the base of the foothills.    Most homes are on wooded lots and give homes the mountain feel.  You also will find some homes atop a hill with FABULOUS mountain views!

 

Going to the grocery store will require a trip to Castle Rock, and depending on where in the town you live, could be 15 minutes.    There isn't much in the "town", but a gas station, post office, three restaurants, and of course two golf courses with restaurants.   Bear Dance Golf Course is closer to I-25, and Perry Park Golf Course is on the West side of town.

There are 11 currently under contract ranging from $585,000 to $894,000

Average days on market are 69 days

Homes were built from 1977 to 2016

 

As you can see, there is a home just about for everyone, in many price points.   

 

 

The BEST PART about Larkspur is the view as you drop down into Perry Park.  It is lush, green and instantly gives you a sense of calm.   Driving down the road, and seeing the deer roam around, hear NO traffic, honking, etc, just the sounds of nature.    It is beautiful!
