Denver Neighborhood Diary: Entry Two

Augus 15th,  20188

Dear Denver Diary,

100 percent, we are convinced Platt Park is the perfect place for finding a forever home in Denver, Colorado. Overflowing with an abundance of activity and high energy, it is so easy to fall in love with this South Denver neighborhood. Location is a huge selling point for the properties in this area. Enjoy the convenient access to I-25, an affordable Uber ride downtown, or a quick trip to study at the University of Denver  The architecture in Platt Park is an alluring combination of the past, present and future. Home buyers get to choose from a nice variety of economic, contemporary dwellings to some impressive, upscale new builds/remodels/townhomes/condos or one of the many traditional, well-cared for historic homes. 

We discovered the true essence of this charming community while walking though the Old South Pearl Street Farmers Market, Denver’s longest running farmers market. Operating every weekend all the way through mid-November, there is no excuse to miss out on the ultimate farmers market experience. This is a main attraction for Platt Park where residents have the opportunity to not only indulge in some unique, local goods and services, but to also give back to the community by supporting small business.

Platt park is really one of Denver’s key locations for a lot of life’s sweet pleasures. Residents can take pride in having such incredible options when it comes to dining, shopping, nightlife, and other hangouts. There are numerous stops worth recommending on South Pearl, the historic shopping district. Feel welcome to stay for just one more when find yourself at Uno Mas Taqueria y Cantina satisfying that food craving. Take all the beer enthusiasts you know to Platt Park Brewing to discover some new flavor profiles they may be missing out on. We are devoted, returning customers at Old South Frame & Gallery anytime we need to fulfill any interior decor need. And don’t forget to represent for the community by sporting some of the latest fashions from Gracie’s Boutique, Melrose &. Madison, or Birds & Belles Boutique.

Platt Park is not just the place to be; it’s the place to live.

Until Next Time,

A Few Reasons To Love Bailey, CO

Listing of the Month: 391 N Hill Bailey Drive

 

You will fall in love with August’s Listing of the Month, located in a small mountain town 30 minutes outside of Denver and just over an hour from Breckenridge. After closing on a local listing recently, we became a total advocate for residency in Bailey, Colorado. Whether raising a family or planning for retirement, this quaint mountain town has a lot to offer.

A Taste for The Wildlife

And of course, we mean “wildlife” not “wild life.”

This laid-back mountain town is the ideal dwelling for all wildlife lovers. If you are looking for that great outdoors feel without feeling completely exiled from civilization, this is the town for you. Bailey is abundant with wildlife; a great spot for fishing, hunting, and viewing. Looking out the window of your Bailey Mountain Dream Home, you might just lock eyes with an elk, a mountain goat, a black bear or if you’re lucky, a mountain lion.

 

 

 

 

Calling All Outdoor/Adventure Enthusiasts

Get Adventurous in the Bailey Pines

Cannot imagine a more perfect place to be active and  get outdoors than amongst the ponderosa pines at the Treehouse Adventure Park. Without a doubt, this has to be one of the main attractions in Bailey, CO. Open seven days per week, this Adventure Park is a self-guided experience home to eight different courses with four different difficulty levels. Test your strength in balancing, climbing, swinging and crawling from tree to tree! If that’s just too much, then challenge your fear of heights by embracing the views in one of the treehouses.

 

Stepping on Sasquatch Territory

Are you a believer or a nonbeliever?

A MUST SEE, one of the most unique specialty shops in Central Colorado is The Sasquatch Outpost. This is Bailey’s very own one stop shop for everything Sasquatch (or Big Foot), the local legend. Pick up a souvenir or gift from their selection of Squatch-related merchandise. Indulge in some research at the Sasquatch Encounter Discovery Museum. Also, be sure and stop by to fulfill all your hunting, fishing and camping needs. This point of interest is worth the trip alone to this little mountain town.
