Denver Post Features West Line Village on Sunday
Five minutes west of Sloan’s Lake, save a bundle on a 3-bedroom home at West Line Village, right on light rail
At West Line Village, west of the Sheridan light-rail station, you can tour a new 3-bedroom/3.5-bath home that has an attached garage, at $435,000.
Everybody knows that Sloan’s Lake is evolving into a millennial magnet now, with restaurants and a dine-in theater. What they DON’T know is that you can save $100,000 on a new home there, by buying a mile farther west of Sloan’s in a new-urban village that feels more like a real community.
On Sunday, Sept. 29, at West Line Village, west of the Sheridan light-railstation on West 10th Avenue, you can tour a new three-bedroom/3-1/2-bath home that has an attached one-car garage, with a wide-open entertaining area and a bedroom level where every bedroom gets its own bath, priced at $435,000.
“That’s around $100,000 less than comparably sized ‘slot home’ plans are going for closer to Sloan’s, that don’t have the extra bedroom and bath,” says Jill Samuels, who will show that and a few other new homes at West Line Village.
Samuels adds that West Line Village has other advantages for first-time or second-time homebuyers over those products that you see at Sloan’s — starting with the light-rail access into downtown. We took a five-minute walk down Lakewood’s Dry Gulch Trail Loop, to where West Line trains were departing for downtown’s Union Station.
There are other homes from just $299,000 — a real price that will deliver a one-bedroom loft-style ranch plan with 788 feet of finished space in West Line Village’s new release of Phase 4 sites, set to deliver in early spring 2020. Like all of these homes, it’s a townhouse plan, with a creative, European village-like exterior streetscape, and nice interior features including vinyl plank floors.
The single-level design, Samuels adds, is also attracting move-down buyers, wanting to resize into a low-maintenance ranch after years in two-story homes on larger lots.
There’s no HOA fee, as West Line Village has a metro district that maintains the landscape and offers snow removal, wrapped into property taxes. Most homes show a “yardlet” for private use — big enough for a garden or for a pooch to wander.
Samuels will have Dutch Bros Coffee out Sunday, Sept. 29, when you see the homes ready for move-in. Or you can visit West Line Village at a special event at Dairy Block’s Milk Market in LoDo on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
To see the models and homes, take Sheridan to W. 10th near the light-rail station and turn west.
