Builder Spencer Chase, who owns Chase Custom Homes, lives in Cory-Merrill. And he has built an amazing house in his (and my!) home neighborhood at 1317 South Milwaukee Street. I love this house!

Spencer thinks outside the box — he never builds the same house twice. Some of the features that stand out on this five-bed, five-bath masterpiece are the herringbone wood front door, alluring green barn doors that open to an office off the living room, and the custom chandelier over the kitchen table. It has its own personality, which is what I love about his homes. Listed at $2.595 million, the home went under contract on February 11.

Bonnie Brae

The home at 1101 South Clayton Street, which sold for $2 million on January 5, represents a great buy for Bonnie Brae. That’s a great price for a 5,230-square-f00t home in the neighborhood. This goes to show that buyers can find good deals in the current fluctuating market of Denver

The home at 941 Fillmore Street, listed at $750,000 and currently under contract, represents some of the best a Congress Park location has to offer. The home feeds into the coveted public high school East High School and provides walking access to amenities on 12th Avenue — such as the wonderful Blue Pan Pizza and Downpours Coffee — and to Cherry Creek.
