At a moment when loads of buyers are looking to avoid using stairs in their next home, only five properties on the market in all of Jefferson County show home elevators now.  But Debbie Zucker with LIV Sotheby’s will show you one in Applewood that also has one of the brightest and most inviting entertaining areas you’re likely to see all year.

At 12432 W. 16th Dr. (a Lakewood mailing address) you’ll also enjoy a choice of three or four spaces that would all make appealing work-from-home offices; most offering the views that this Applewood Bluffs enclave has of Lookout Mountain, South Table Mountain, and the Flatirons north of Golden. Applewood is known for very nice neighborhoods centered around its namesake shopping center, most dating from the ‘60s and ‘70s; but this custom home enclave arrived in the 1990s, wrapping a very private entry drive tucked on a ridgeline south of Youngfield Street near Lena Gulch.

Georgette Moutsos grew up in Paris during the war; and bought this custom with her husband Menelaos, whom she met as a GI after France was liberated. The couple lavishly adorned this design with European art and antiques, but Zucker and her partner Carly Olson say it could obviously head in a much more contemporary direction.

The price, $1.295 million, is in line with neighbors’ and speaks to a 5 bedroom/6 bath plan with almost 6,000 sq. feet, plus a 4-car garage, on a lower-maintenance site.  It appraised for more, notes Zucker.

The news and editorial staffs of The Denver Post had no role in this post’s preparation.
