If you never want to go outside because of the cold, you might as well own the home you’re never leaving. But what cold-stopping edifice could you get if you lived in a city other than Denver? Here’s the answer from three different urban housing markets.
- 1405 Arthur Avenue Unit A, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1,937 square feet
The only fault I find in this home is the strange wood panelling on the second floor, even if it is reclaimed wood. Otherwise, this home has a perfectly lovely exterior and all the contemporary style one would expect of a newly constructed home.
- 331 E. 47th Street, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3,301 square feet
This home is practically double the size of the Denver entrant, plus it has a large enclosed front porch. Additionally, this historic home has original woodwork and a fireplace. If you were shopping for homes based purely on square feet, prettiness or porch quality, this would be the winner.
- 3501 Girard Avenue S, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2,610 square feet
It’s negative 8 degrees in Minneapolis as I write this. Other details worth considering: the lovely light fixtures casting shadows and a delightful back patio. I hear good things about this twin city, so if you can stand the cold, this seems like a worthy home.
- 4559 Batavia Place, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,703 square feet
If you bought this half-duplex in South Park Hill, I suspect that you’d have to get to know your neighbor. Maybe you’d bond over the subway tile in your basement and lament your blonde wood fixtures.
