Discover this exceptional residence located on the 6th tee at West Woods. The home offers five bedrooms, five baths including a lower level guest suit. The spacious projection theater room is a rare addition to a property priced under $900,000. With over 5,400 finished square feet, the home feels even larger as there are so many options to redefine the interior spaces. While being on the course offers an open feel with its impressive views, the lower level is more secluded – nestled lower than the adjacent fairway and complimented by water features, mature trees, and perennial landscaping.

The home represents one of the most affordable golf course residences currently on the market. The street presence instills an elegant, welcoming ambiance with its curved drive, and classic side load attached garage. The custom architectural elements that won its selection into the Parade of stand out – from the hand-plastered walls to the custom glasswork and etched windows – each one adding to the resident’s unique interior. The floor plan offers a main floor master suite that opens onto the raised deck for quiet evenings watching the sun set over the Front Range.

“We love to entertain here,” stated Jerry Caruso, the only owner of this home since 1994, “and the entire neighborhood and community is a great family environment.”

With the fully finished walk-out level, wet bar and covered patio, we certainly understand why! The custom home retains its classic architectural elements while creating a truly inviting setting for gathering with family and friends.

From the back of the home, you will enjoy the open space of the 6th fairway and a perfect view of Table Mountain and the Front Range. Even West Woods Golf Course’s website highlights that the par three, sixth hole as offering one of the highest vantage points of all the 27 fairways. With the home’s raised, wrap-around deck facing the Southwest, the open fairway insures an unobstructed vista from the main living areas of the home. As the homeowner points out, it’s virtually impossible for any errant ball to find its way onto the property, guaranteeing a more serene setting.

From the Fall 2017 Issue: Bear Dance’s Best-Kept Secret

Getting Home Bear Dance Real Estate Cover

For those seeking space and seclusion, the areas surrounding the popular Larkspur course hold great appeal.

By Martin Yeager

The great American architect Louis Kahn once said, “The sun does not realize how wonderful it is until a room is made.” With Colorado getting more than 300 days of sunshine every year, there’s more than a chance his belief would apply to many houses across the state. And for most of us, adding a rolling fairway just outside that room would create the perfect setting to call home.

Grayhawk BearDance Real Estate

A pine-ensconced $1.5M home on Grayhawk Place in Bear Dance Village.

Welcome to “Getting Home,” a new column featuring residences and communities that reflect life along the fairways. From a one-bedroom condo overlooking Heather Ridge that recently sold in the low $100s to the stunning residences of Castle Pines Village or Cherry Hills Country Club that reflect price points in the $3 million range, numerous select homes become available on an ongoing basis. 

As of this writing, there are approximately 320 homes for sale that offer a golf course view. My experience tells me that not every residence described with a “view” borders a course, though many are within the surrounding neighborhoods. 

Approximately 1,400 similar homes sold in the past year while new custom homes continue to expand your real estate opportunities. If you are considering a home adjacent to one of your favorite courses, you will find options in all price ranges.

Just don’t expect your neighbor to complete your foursome. An estimated one-third of golf community homeowners are not active golfers; they choose to live there for the open space, serenity and the unique vantage point. Traditionally, homes adjacent to the golf course bring a higher price than similar homes. Builders often add a premium lot price for new homes on the course, which adds to the increased resale values. Many golf neighborhoods have seen surges in home prices greater than those in metro area.

Sterling Pointe – Homes from $700K-$1.1M, Home Sites from $200K+

We tee up this newest section with The Golf Club at Bear Dance, located just south of Castle Rock in Larkspur. While the golf course has rightfully earned numerous CAGGY Awards for Best Public Course, the residences and home sites nestled in the tall pines of the surrounding communities could be Bear Dance’s best-kept secret.

The Bear Dance Clubhouse

The Village at Bear Dance and the adjacent Hidden Oaks at Bear Dance are so secluded, you may not know they exist. They benefit  from the same sense of privacy afforded by the thick pines and dramatic foothills that the golf club does.

Both Hidden Oaks and the Village at Bear Dance are gated communities, combining existing custom residences and undeveloped building sites. The vision of the initial planners and developers sought to retain the natural landscape while developing the area into a prestigious golf club and community. They represent part of the master plan of Southwest Greens, the company that developed the course and continues to own and operate it.

Only 47 of these estate residences exist in the entire development, while neighboring communities of Sterling Pointe and Sage Port offer additional options and collectively create the quintessential Colorado lifestyle.
