Volleyball, tennis courts, and BBQ's are availible.

This property is very open and airy. Over $140,000 was spent in interior renovations since the owner bought it 10 years ago. All the rooms are filled with light and have an open air concept.

There is also a large sized office that has 11' window looking out over the courtyard and water feature. This room can be used as an additional bedroom.

Over $100,000 was invested in the front yard landscaping alone. Several full size trees give this 1/4 acre property a sense of seclusion even though you are in the middle of the city. The front of the house faces west so you can watch the sunset every night from the front porch. The landscape features include: Entirely fenced front yard, covered patio, courtyard with seatwalls and raised planters, water feature, and over 40 low voltage lights. Day or night the landscaping in this home is amazing! There is an oversized 1 car garage attaced that can fit full size trucks with room to spare as well as keep any additional toys or luggage in. The driveway can park up to 4 cars and there are double gates at the end of the driveway to completely enclose the property. The backyard is smaller and completely enclosed even for small dogs.

About Will Hyde

Me and my Wife are a fun loving couple that like to embrace all the fun things that Colorado has to offer. We both have a sharp sense of style. I have owned a landscape design/ build firm for 10 years and have done an extensive amount of work at the house. We also own an indoor/ outdoor retail shop in the heart of the art district on Santa Fe. In addition I do sculptural welding and there are a few pieces worked in throughout the landscape. We have put a great amount of thought and care into this home and hope you enjoy it and its surroundings!

Will Hyde purchased this House in 2003

Why Will Hyde chose Denver County

After looking at over 60 homes I found this property and loved it due to its close proximity to everything and its 1/4 acre yard. Sloan's Lake Park is amazing with views in both directions. Many Denverites don't even know where it is!

What makes this House unique

I am an artist. I bought this house for its location, the property size, its bones, and it 7 large mature trees. After 10 years and $250,000 we made it the way we wanted. Now with our growing family and business' we have moved to our next project.

                                                            Clean, lovely open layout, nice location

                                                            McKayla H.

                                                            The house was very nice and near a lake with a running path around it. It was only $20 to take a Lyft to the downtown area and a very easy drive to the aquarium. Something to note if you’re traveling with 6 adults is that the people staying in the master bedroom have to walk through the office space to get to their room, or go outside and around to the front door. So if you are the ones staying on the pullout in the office, you may have some foot traffic through your space. Other than that - really great stay with a nice open layout for visiting and a beautiful yard.

                                                            Worth every penny!

                                                            Peter J.

                                                            My family and I had a wonderful time at this VRBO over New Year's Eve 2017, and would highly recommend it to anyone. Centrally located and easy to get to and from downtown and the interstate, near a grocery store, a bank and other retail establishments, and only a two-block walk from Sloan's Lake, this VRBO is in great shape, complete with comfortable furnishings, reliable internet / wifi, TV and soundbar, and a very well-equipped kitchen. The owner clearly knows what he is doing, and has thought of just about everything you might need during your stay, including extra paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies and linens. The information the owner provided about how to gain access to the property, where things were and how things worked was complete, accurate and timely. We had a fantastic time here.

                                                            It was wonderful visit to Denver and the House was perfect. Thank you

                                                            This house is great! Very comfortable and a great neighborhood. With the fence around the whole house - it is perfect for a stay with a dog and offers a sense of security. There are stores and restaurants for everything you need a short walk away. Sloan Lake Park is a great walking park for pets or just to stroll, with beautiful views of the mountains.

                                                            The house is very clean and comfortable and well stocked.

                                                            The location is fantastic to the mountains, Boulder and Colorado Springs, and so easy if you are looking to go downtown. If you are looking for a down day, the porch is a great place to hang out and read.

                                                            One of the nicest stays we've ever had at a VRBO house and true to it's description. Perfect for a family or just a couple.

                                                            Be prepared to care about this home and all the details that the owners have put into it. The landscaped yard and patio is a relaxing escape. We enjoyed sitting by the cozy fireplace, watching TV, listening to music, eating meals and playing card games or putting together puzzles. I am inspired to try to recreate the interior design of the guest bathroom for one of our bathrooms at home. The neighborhood is lovely. I hope to return in the very near future.

                                                            This home was an unexpected treat in the middle of Denver. It was close to so much and yet felt private and quiet. We had been driving for a long time before arriving here and my back went out. So I spent a lot of time recuperating while the rest of my family spent time with friends. I was thankful for how peaceful this house was. My kids enjoyed it as well and really loved playing in the front yard or sitting under the trees and reading.

                                                            Completely worth it.
