Master Planned Mountain Living
1615 Foothills Drive lives within the Genesee Foundation, a notoriously luxurious mountain community. While only 14 minutes from adorable downtown Golden, this community feels worlds away. All homes in Genesee complement the stunning natural environment. Mountain and valley views and greenspaces are seemingly endless in this neighborhood. The community is friendly and welcoming, and there are plenty of neighborhood clubs to get involved in if that’s your thing. Genesee amenities include:
Over 15 miles of hiking trails, accessible right outside your door
4 tennis courts
2 swimming pools ( lap pool and children's splash pool - completed 2021)
Upkeep to roads that are not County owned
“Vacation checks” by request at your home by the sheriff
Trash, Recycle, Snow Removal
- Many options for joining Clubs
The Genesee is a truly unique master-planned community. The foundation owns over twelve hundred acres of open green space. All greenspaces are thoughtfully managed for erosion and weed control, fire prevention, and walkability.
Sitting on .51 acres, life at 1615 Foothills Drive feels like living in a treehouse. This home will make you feel like you're permanently on vacation. There are three different deck spaces. Indoor-outdoor has never been easier. The west deck includes a retractable awning that auto-retracts during windy conditions.
This mountain home is the perfect home to spend your golden years... and not just because it's a Golden, CO location! The main level of the home is completely wheelchair accessible. The primary bedroom suite is on the main level. It includes a private deck, a giant walk-in closet, and an oversized jetted tub.
The main living space includes a custom stained glass window commissioned by the home builders. A stunning double-sided stone fireplace warms the living and dining room space. High beamed ceilings make the space feel open and woodsy. 6 frosted double skylights soak the main level in natural light.
The south deck has been thoughtfully designed to utilize solar heating. Sunlight streams into the home in the winter, allowing for passive solar warming. But the angle of the deck prevents overheating during the summer months.
The downstairs includes a family room, complete with a mini-fridge, sink, 2-burner stove, and large closets. This could easily be used as a guest suite or man-cave.
This is the first time that 1615 Foothills Drive has been available for ownership outside the family. The seller’s parents built this custom home. It was passed on to the next generation when they were ready to downsize. What legacy will you bring to 1615 Foothills Drive?
