This tastefully redone Sloan's Lake Ranch is an oasis in the city! Centrally located and close to everything Denver has to offer. Half a block away from Sloan's lake park where there are beatiful views of the mountains and the city. Sloan's lake has a walking/ running path that is anwhere from 3-5 miles around the park. Volleyball, tennis courts, and BBQ's are availible.

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.

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

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.

Amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house with an even more amazing yard! The landscaping was clearly done by a professional and we enjoyed many evenings on the front porch looking out over the beautiful yard. The owner was very responsive with any questions we had and quickly refunded our deposit in full. The location is perfect, close to downtown, but only a few minutes to the interstate to head up to the mountains.

Perfect for 5 people who wanted to host Thanksgiving dinner for 9

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we needed. 2 bedrooms + a pull out couch in the office, and a large enough kitchen with a table + kitchenware to host additional guests for Thanksgiving dinner. The fireplace and cozy furniture inside + the fence and landscaping done outside make for a very welcoming feel. And, the house is only a half block off from Sloan Lake and the park which is beautiful for walks/morning runs. It's also just a 3-min drive / 10-min walk to the large grocery store. Very convenient all around and would definitely stay there again if we revisit Denver in a group of 4-5.

A home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

What a great home and location!

Great kitchen for a good home cooked meal.

Modern living, happy atmosphere, great landscaping and lighting!

Totally dog friendly 😊😊!

Minutes away from everything you need!

Restaurants, grocery, Cherry Creek shopping, etc.

Sloan Lake - the largest in Denver, is a block can bike, hike, run or stroll for miles.

The landscaping, home decor, and comfort of this home is very inviting and relaxed.

Will was able to accommodate us for an extra night when my friend was too ill to travel. I really appreciate that!

I will stay here again if available- - 2 very happy guests!

Thank you Will, for your help!
