Property description

The Blue Bear
We named this great home after one of our favorite public art pieces, the blue bear at the convention center. The piece encapsulates what we love about this city and our neighborhood. It’s whimsical but still traditional, full of surprises, and you never get bored with it.

The house has been recently updated and renovated to provide a comfortable and enjoyable home away from home. It hosts a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with an additional non-conforming bedroom in the basement for overflow. The home features hardwood floors, coved ceilings, and updated kitchen and bathrooms. There are 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the main floor and an additional bathroom, game room, and non-conforming bedroom in the basement. There are 2 living rooms on the main floor (one is accessed through the third bedroom) as well as a formal dining room and sun room. The third bedroom can be used as a large master with en-suite living room or as bedroom with access to the second main floor living room. There is a patio with a table, chairs, and a grill at the back of the house. Large fenced backyard with tree house!

On site laundry, fully equipped kitchen, gas grill, and family friendly amenities such as a pack and play, high chair, changing table, and board games.

Excellent location! Walk to a trendy spots or just a short drive to everything wonderful denver has to offer. Just 2 miles from downtown denver and 4 blocks from the popular highlands square which is a pedestrian friendly hub with restaurants, shops, spas, salons, a b-cycle stand, and more. Easy access to major freeways such as i-70 and i-25. Close to both biking and hiking trails. Less than 2 hours from the ski and casino resorts. Safeway grocery is less than 1 mile away. Just a few minutes to incredible local attractions such as the performing arts complex, museums, the denver zoo, sports facilities, parks, aquarium, zoo, the 16th street mall, lower downtown (lodo), first rate shopping (cherry creek), outlet malls (colorado mills)
