Town of Larkspur CO - Market Update June 2021

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. 


Going to the grocery store will require a trip to Castle Rock, and depending on where in the town you live, it 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.


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


Here is what happened in June 2021 - 

16 properties sold ranging in price from $375,000 to $942,000

Days in MLS were 10 average days

Sellers saw 102.09% to list price

Homes sold were built from 1978 to 2005


Sure saw an uptick in sales for June (6 sales in May to 16 in June) and sellers were able to see over their list price!  


Most homes built a century ago have been remodeled - this one was built in 1904 - 


Looking for a home on acreage in the Denver Metro Area?     






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, hearing NO traffic, honking, etc. just the sounds of nature.  It is beautiful! 


Looking to lower your stress level, live on some acreage, and enjoy wildlife?  Call me.   720-231-6373

James Dray does sound like you need to stay put, but Larkspur is really nice.
