About the Property
2 bdr basement apt. w/semi-pvt entry. Hosts Tom & Viv live above on main floor
The guest quarters consist of a 950 sq. ft. fully-finished and furnished basement apt. w/ semi-private entry, 2 spacious bedrooms - one w/queen-sized bed and the other with two comfy twin beds, closet and dresser space, 1 bathroom with large walk-in shower, cozy kitchenette, your own large living space with a wood fireplace, Wi-Fi, TV and DVD player and an extensive library. Common areas include the main level kitchen, laundry, back porch and beautifully landscaped yard as well as off-street parking.
We supply our guests all bed linens and blankets, pillow cases, towels, wash clothes, toilet paper, paper towel and kleenex.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe with no through streets or traffic. We are located just 3 short blocks from the 88 mile long Highline Canal bike path which connects easily to the Cherry Creek Bike path. Also, the University Hills shopping district is just a few minutes away by car or bike.
I've lived here for 45 years and love this area because it is so quiet and safe yet has easy access to downtown, restaurants and local bike paths. And we are only 15-20 minutes by car to the foothills, less than an hour to Boulder and 1.5 hours away from some of the best skiing, snowboading, hiking and mountain climbing in the world.
Guests have full access to the entire 950 sq ft. beautifully finished rental unit as well as to the main level kitchen, laundry, back porch, barbecue grill, and garden.
The guest quarters are in our fully-finished and furnished basement, not on the street level of the house. We are not offering the entire house for rent, just the finished basement. We encourage our guests to come up to the main level kitchen to cook if they so desire, and also use the laundry facilities (which are also on the main level as well, just next to the entrance to the guest quarters entrance off of our back porch.) The guest quarters entrance is accessible via a lighted pathway that goes from the driveway out front along the north side of our house to the back porch. It's also worth noting that there is a short flight of stairs that goes down to the guest quarters.

This is mainly a residential district located 7 minutes due east of the University of Denver. We are just 3 blocks west of the 88- mile long Highline Canal bike path that connects nearby to the Cherry Creek Bike path that leads to downtown Denver. We are just a couple of minutes away from both the Light Rail to downtown Denver and to I-25, which allows travelers easy access to all of the front range communities from Wyoming south to the Colorado New Mexico border.
Year Purchased: 1969
About the owner: I am a professional artist and my housemate Vivian is a Brazilian born film actress and Portuguese Medical Translator. For many years I was a guide in the Desert Southwest, Colorado Rockies, Swiss Alps and the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan. I am fluent in Swiss German and can speak passable High German. Vivian has lived and traveled extensively throughout North and South America and Europe and is fluent in Portuguese, Spanish and English. We both enjoy playing the guitar, x-c skiing, canoeing, photography, reading books and adventures. Vivian grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil and is the most easy-going curious person I know -- a true joy to live and travel with.
Why the Owner Chose Goldsmith, Denver, CO, USA:
I love this part of Southeast Denver where I grew up because it is located halfway between the suburbs and downtown with easy access to light rail, I-25 and the University Hills area with lots of great restaurants, shopping and parks.
