Timeless Traditions

Ahh, the nostalgic days of summer, where the memories of summers past flood into our senses bringing smiles of neighborhood parties and cravings of lemonade and barbeques.

Many of us travel miles to the family home and neighborhoods to stroll down memory lane catching a glimpse of childhood past and rebooting that which makes us human.   Many of us stay home in order to create those days for our own children and their children.  If you fall into the latter category you need to be in the community that can make this happen.  Castle Pines Village is your neighborhood and the home at 466 Lorraway Drive is the perfect setting for memory making.

The large brick two story has multi-generational appeal with a timeless floor plan.  This is the home that you can grow into but will never grow out of, it is that timeless.  The home's vaulted entry with marble flooring and  sweeping staircase provides a stunning opening act. This entry is the perfect backrop for all occasions from holidays to weddings..visions of .garland draped around the handrail with pajama clad children descending or a sweet sixteen prom dress presented.  The entry is anchored by a dining room with double french doors and a built-in buffet that is ideal for entertaining whether you are 'popping the champs' or blowing out the birthday candles , this room brings on the timeless element of  surprise.

The large great room is friendly and open to the kitchen and breakfast nook, aptly designed for after school homework, "soup's on" dinners or Sunday night football gatherings.  The multi-generational functionality of this home is also found in the bedrooms with a main floor study that can convert to a main floor bedroom with the contiguous three quarter bathroom.  The second story master bedroom and master bath ensuite, and three additional bedrooms and two additional bathrooms are connected by an open loft with bookcases.

The home's exterior is framed by a half acre lot with towering ponderosa pines, professional landscaping, a large meandering stone patio, open fire pit and stone waterfall, a stargazing patio and two decks.  Egg hunts, croquet competitions, s'mores, hide and go seek, hammock napping...makes you want to kick the can with your children, grandchildren, parents or neighbors.  

The home is located in an iconic area of Castle Pines Village that has sponsored and hosted festivities from 4th of July bike and pet parades, summer street block parties with bands and beverages, traditional Halloween trick or treating, potlucks, bookclubs, garden clubs, gin clubs, bridal showers, baby showers, grad parties, office parties and party for no good reason parties.  The basement at 466 Lorraway Drive is finished to restaurant quality with a complete kitchen, full carved wooden wet bar with barstools, theatre room and disco dance floor.  If the walls could talk....black-tie holiday parties, after parties from any of the above festivities, office retreats or simple Saturday movie nights with pizza and popcorn.  The recreation room is so insulated it is just a door off speak easy.

The home at 466 Lorraway Drive is located within Castle Pines Village in the area that has a welcoming return effect on the generations, many a child's child is now being raised in this part of the Village.  Castle Pines Village has fortunate access to the top quality Douglas County School system and easy commutes to some of the top private and parochial schools in the Denver metro area.  Castle Pines Village is a gated community with 24 hour Emergency Services, including a large fire station on Happy Canyon Road, two signature Jack Nicklaus 18 hole private golf courses, hiking trails, biking trails, 4 swimming pools, fitness center, tennis courts, and local shopping center with gourmet food, wine, boutique shopping.

Words do not do justice to the timelessness of the home and neighborhood... you need to see it, feel it, play in it, then you will want to live in it.
