3 notable recent Wash Park sales
Washington Park is probably Denver’s hottest neighborhood. Residents and visitors from near and far know of its eponymous huge park that dominates the neighborhood. At just under three square miles, it is by far the largest neighborhood I work in.
The park, which stretches eight long north-south blocks by four smaller west-east blocks, roughly bisects the neighborhood. Single-family homes predominate on both the west and east sides of the park. However, those west of the park are smaller on smaller lots and have more rentals; homes on the east are larger on larger lots and have more owner-occupied housing.
Because it’s one of my core neighborhoods, I keep a close eye on it. Here are three notable home sales that have closed in the last 14 days.
704 S Gaylord Street — three beds, three baths, $789,000
Located just a few blocks north of South Gaylord Street’s wonderful commercial block, this charming Tudor in East Wash Park sold on Nov. 30 for $789,000. On Wash Park’s quiet side, the one-story home last sold in 2013 for $545,000, features a furnished basement and glorious Wash Park living.
Listed on October 22, it sat on the market for just four days before going under contract at full price.
574 S Williams Street — four beds, four baths, $1.535 million
Sold on November 30, this charming scrape and new-build features hardwood floors and exposed brick. The $1.535 million closing price measured just over 3 percent above the $1.495 million list price, indicating the appeal clean, newer homes have in the East Wash Park area.
785 S Washington Street — four beds, four baths, $820,000
First listed in August 2018 for $950,000 this West Wash Park townhome went through a series of price reductions before settling at $830,000 this October. It sold on December 4 for $820,000. The home appears in good shape, but sits on a lot with homes nearby as many West Wash Park homes do.
Its high price accounts for the long sales runway. With a median sale price of the low $600,000s, the home on the west side of Wash Park, which features smaller lots and less expensive homes, failed to grab a buyer at its original list price.
