Throughout the Denver Metro area, it remains difficult to find homesites and new construction opportunities that feature proximity to the city and easy access to nature. This is what makes the new Sundance custom home community so incredibly rare.
Nestled next to the foothills in southwest Jefferson County, Sundance has the best of both worlds. Being developed by veteran custom home builder John Kurowski, the community features six one-acre custom homesites adjacent to the Bear Creek Greenbelt just west of Estes Street and south of Yale in the suburban enclave of Lakewood.
“Sundance is an undiscovered secret,” Kurowski explains. “Of the six sites, only three remain available for purchase — making a rare opportunity, even rarer. Nowhere else can you find luxury lots in a developed community next to open space, nature preserves, and parks that is just 15-minutes from Downtown Denver yet with easy access to the mountains.”
Lakewood Living at its Finest
The city of Lakewood boasts more than 7,200 acres of open space, 107 miles of multi-use trails, and 110 parks – including Bear Creek Lake Park and William F. Hayden Park on Green Mountain. Immersed in the natural setting of the Bear Creek Greenbelt, Sundance is just 30 steps from the Bear Creek Trail, a paved multi-use trail that runs from the South Platte River west to Bear Creek Lake Regional Park. The trail passes through Denver and Lakewood as it winds its way through cottonwood filled parks.
In addition to easy access to trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, there are two large, fishable lakes in close proximity to Sundance and the historic “Stone House” dating from 1859-1864 that is used for wedding receptions and other events. And did we mention the views? To the west are the foothills and Mount Morrison, the 7,881-foot peak located in Red Rocks Park.
In addition to incredible access to the Bear Creek Greenbelt and stunning views, Sundance is surrounded by amenities you only find in established neighborhoods. The community is near top-rated schools including the International Baccalaureate World School Lakewood High School, Colorado Academy, D’Evelyn Junior/Senior High School, and Colorado Christian University. Popular golf courses like Fox Hollow, Homestead Golf Course are close by as well as the Pinehurst Country Club. Also in proximity, you will find the Lakewood Heritage Center, the Lakewood Cultural Center, and shopping districts including Belmar and Colorado Mills.
Uniquely Large Lots
The three lots still available at Sundance are a little more than one acre each. “It is extremely rare to find sites this size with this location,” Kurowski explained. “These lots are four-to-seven times the size of a typical Denver lot, and two-to-three times the size of most custom lots in Lakewood.”
The unique opportunity to build on your choice of one of these one-acre homesites starts at $1.9 million, which includes the land and custom home built by the award-winning team at Kurowski Custom Homes.
Sundance has wide appeal, some buyers in particular may be an ideal fit for the homesites: someone looking for space to hold the right-sized ranch house, a buyer who wants to build a home with a secondary housing unit like a granny flat, a family with children looking for a large backyard to play with a private street and next to a greenbelt, or a buyer with a custom car collection looking to build collector car storage with their home.
One of Denver’s Best-Known Custom Builders
Kurowski has been building custom homes in the Denver area for more than 40 years and has been recognized with many awards for his work and a long record of building homes around energy efficiency and comfort. He credits his company’s stability and success to listening very closely to the homeowners they work with to identify what they want and what they need as a whole.
“Listening is a critical part of the design process,” Kurowski explains. “It helps us achieve exactly what our homeowners want.”
And what customers want in their custom homes varies due to circumstances and the times. “I think one thing that’s come out from this whole pandemic is that people are realizing how much their homes are really the center of their lives and I think it’s making people look at the amenities that they have in their homes a little bit differently,” Kurowski adds.
Some of the amenities people are seeking in their homes include multiple home offices or workspaces as people are working on a remote basis and homeschooling or doing remote learning with their children. Grandparent and guest suites are popular, as are indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, sports courts, and expanded garages for car collections. He says that kitchens remain a focal point of homes, giving homeowners space to entertain their family and friends in a kitchen entertainment environment.
Over the years, Kurowski and his team have built a wide range of custom home styles with varying price points. He looks forward to working with buyers of the three Sundance homesites to help them build out their visions in such a special, private community.
