English Manor House Setting, Cherry Hills Village Addresslivxmin
Although one would never realize it from the grounds, the stately residence at 1550 E. Oxford Lane is actually located in the city of Cherry Hills Village – and is one of only 26 properties that ring the venerable Cherry Hills Country Club, which was established in 1920.
Those attributes alone make this an extraordinary property, according to Josh Behr, a broker with Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty in the Denver Tech Center, who recently sold the home, listed at $4.6 million.
The home sits on four pastoral acres, secluded by mature trees. It’s an incredibly private setting from the outside, while those on the property see sweeping lawns and unobstructed 200-degree views of the country club, which has hosted, and continues to host, some of the country’s most prestigious golf tournaments.
“When you consider that much of Denver is high desert, this property is an absolute oasis. It’s becoming rarer to find large parcels with such mature landscapes anywhere, let alone in the city,” Behr noted.
While some parts of Cherry Hills Village no longer allow horses in residential neighborhoods, Oxford Lane retains the right to this delightful oddity. In fact, there is a professionally installed riding area and a three-stall barn. A very young Elizabeth Taylor, when she starred in the 1944 film, “National Velvet,” would feel right at home.
This property is one of several sales made recently in Cherry Hills Village by Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty brokers. Brokers Janet Kritzer and Nancy Wolfe each had a successful transaction and the two joined forces to co-list and sell another golf course/horse property at 1530 E. Oxford Lane.
The median sale price for homes in Cherry Hills Village has risen from just over $1 million in April 2013 to more than $1.6 million in April 2014.
