Things we love about this Property C rush:

This bright, contemporary home combines the best of urban and suburban living: It has an airy, loft-like feel, but it’s on a cozy cul-de-sac in an established Denver neighborhood. This turnkey home features huge windows in the second-floor bedrooms, plus a pair of sliders on the first floor, which let in the light and lead out to the al fresco dining-friendly patio.

The open-concept living space is the heart of the home – especially the entertaining-friendly kitchen, which features a large island with an overhang for seating, plus stainless steel appliances and plenty of cabinets for a neat, organized look (sorry, open shelving).

Upstairs, there’s a pair of dual master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms with white stack bond tile and floating vanities. And, though the bedrooms are nearly identical in terms of size and amenities, one includes a pretty appealing bonus: A balcony. Hello, gentle morning breeze…
