It’s Mother’s Day weekend, a time to celebrate mothers everywhere who have loved and supported us from the very beginning. But for Coloradans, Mother’s Day weekend also means that it’s time to get back into the garden and start planting. After months of winter weather, warming temperatures finally allow gardeners to get back outside and into their oasis.
A home garden can provide much more than just a fun hobby. A garden is a great place to meditate and reflect on our thoughts, connect with nature, or spend time with children and loved ones. Especially now, with recreational activities being limited for health and safety concerns, homes with gardens or outdoor spaces are highly sought-after features that homebuyers are looking for.
Not only does having a garden give your home a fun extra feature for you to enjoy while living in the home but when it comes time to sell, well maintained landscaping can increase the value of your home in the buyer’s eye. LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) has plenty of properties that have outdoor spaces for every type of gardener from novice to seasoned professional.
In the prestigious neighborhood of Cherry Hills Village, the stunning estate at 5901 Piedmont Drive boasts impressive grounds teeming with mature trees, flowering shrubs, and plenty of space to cultivate a variety of plants. This five-bedroom home, which is listed by LIV SIR brokers Ian Wolfe and Chris Bouc for $5,990,000, sits on almost two acres and has mountain views. Just a short drive from downtown Denver, this home provides an escape from the city with rustic elegance touches and room to roam.
In Boulder, LIV SIR brokers Jeff Erickson and Carliss Erickson are representing a secluded estate set on more than 38 acres. 1451 Rembrandt Road, which is listed for $2,390,000, is a spectacular and serene listing located within the gated community of Buckingham Hills. As one of just nine homes that share more than 300 acres of private open space, this house is ideal for those who prioritize privacy. In addition to the ample acreage that comes with the home, there are cascading patios and sun-lit garden terraces where one can tend to potted plants and flower boxes.
The resort communities also have amazing homes that are paradise for plant-lovers and gardeners alike. 101 Rocky Road in Mountain Village, Colorado is a picturesque place to grow whatever flowers you fancy. The home, which is listed by LIV SIR broker, Matthew Hintermeister for $5,175,000, is designed to resemble an Adirondak lodge built with rustic timber logs and facing incredible mountain views. The landscaping around the house is colorful and filled with multi-seasonal plants so that the outdoor spaces can be enjoyed year-round.
