Fabulous Lower Level of a Huge House in Denver. All the Comforts of Home
When we built our new house in 2001, we did so with the idea that we may find ourselves sharing it with friends and family, Therefore, we finished the BASEMENT into a complete 2,400 square foot living space. We live on the main floor and are often at home. Some of the features include 10 foot high ceilings, a private outside entrance, a separate furnace with A/C, a laundry room, a fully stocked kitchen, dining room, living room, four spacious bedrooms, one luxurious bathroom, a private office, wine cellar, dumb waiter, 100 gallon hot water heater, dishwasher, microwave oven, electric range, refrigerator, and entertainment center.
All of the finishes are high-end from the knockdown textured walls to the Karastan carpet on the floor. There's lots of granite and marble. Tons of recessed lights, solid wood doors, super well insulated so it stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is quiet all year round.
There is plenty of on street parking with no restrictions right in front of the house. It has a gorgeous front lawn with a park like setting. Perfect for enjoying a glass of wine at the end of a stressful day.

About Jeff Evans and Mary Alice "Sweets" Bross-Evans
When my wife, whose name is Mary Alice "Sweets" Bross-Evans bought the original farmhouse for this area the neighborhood consisted of mostly two bedroom bungalows. In 1994 a transformation began with one contractor buying one house, scraping it off and building a two story house in its place. Now about 50% of the original houses are gone, replaced by bigger, more elegant homes. We jumped on the band wagon in 2000 with plans of custom building our Dream Home. our Dreams were realize in December of 2001 when we received our Certificate of Occupancy from the City and County of Denver.

Why Jeff Evans and Mary Alice "Sweets" Bross-Evans chose University Park
We had already lived right across the alley from this property for 20 years before we purchased the land. The previous owner died. Her son knew how kind I had been to her for several years prior to her death and agreed to give me the first opportunity to purchase it. So we did. No regrets.
What makes this House unique
As a fully custom home, we had total control over the design and construction of this house. We incorporated things like three furnaces, three air conditioners and three laundry rooms, one for each level of the house. We also built a front loaded garage with an extra wide driveway. The exterior is finished in River Rock and Stucco to give us a maintenance free home.

We had a wonderful stay at the Evans' house. They went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable as we were traveling with our three young children. The house is pristine and quiet. We had more than enough amenities to make our stay comfortable. The location is superb and we will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Denver. Thank you, Jeff and Sweets!
Everything was perfect!
This was our first time to use VRBO and we were so happy that everything was exactly as described! We made a last minute reservation for a family ski vacation with our adult children and found this home very comfortable for the 6 of us to stay in for 5 days. The Owner, Jeff, was very nice & helpful and responded to all of my questions by email really fast! The 3 bedrooms were all cozy and the kitchen and living room spaces were perfect for after-skiing meals & relaxing. The kitchen, bathroom and laundry room were all fully stocked with everything you'd need for a nice stay (there was even coffee, an assortment of spices and condiments and plenty of fresh towels & toiletries!). The VRBO portion of the home (a fully furnished basement) had its own separate entrance from the main floors of the home, making it feel very private. This property is located in an very high-end, quiet neighborhood of Denver, so we always felt very safe and even walked several miles around the area when we weren't on the slopes. It is also very close to some great dining, a Whole Foods, shopping and some coffee places. Loveland Ski Area was less than an hour from the home and had great spring break skiing! We will definitely book here again!
Above and Beyond
We rented this property for a surprise family and friends dinner. It was a theme dinner and we went to preview the home/basement and talk about what we needed. It was a theme party and we discussed the theme (Harry Potter) and the books and movies.
The Owners were so considerate to record the movies for us to play in the background, and the day of the party they went through their kitchen to see if there was anything we needed in the way of crock pots, serving dishes and spoons, and anything else we may need.
It was a beautiful party and a beautiful home to have it in!
A great experience! Very comfortable and lovely
These accommodations worked great for us, very comfortable and relaxing. Jeff and Sweets are great hosts. They demonstrate a skillful balance of knowing enough about the purpose of the visit (for us training/minimal exploring) and offering information and support when our schedule opened up free time. They generously took the time to orient us to our area of interest.
Excellent place to stay.
Very nice home and accommodations. Owners went out of their way to make you feel welcome.
My family and I spent a long weekend here, and it was one of the nicest and most comfortable VRBOs in which we’ve ever stayed. The owners were very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. We will stay here again in the future!
