Last month, the average sales price for a Denver home reached a new record high of $606,330. But what can a home buyer expect to find in the city for that price? From charming traditional to sleek contemporary, here’s a glimpse at three options available (but not for long!) in this hot market.

This two-story, historic brick home (part of a duplex) in the Whittier neighborhood was built in 1900 and recently renovated with fresh colors and an open layout, offering 1,598 square feet of interior space, two bedrooms, and one and one-half bathrooms. The home has a new roof, central air conditioning, new hardwood floors, updated finishes and fixtures, a formal dining room, and an all-new kitchen with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. The private, entertainment-ready backyard features a deck with a pergola and a grassy play area. There’s even room to build a two-car garage.
4219 Zuni St., $599,000
This bright, four-bedroom, three-bath, 1,568-square-foot Sunnyside duplex home was built in 1979 and renovated three years ago with eco-friendly features, including solar panels, on-demand hot water, smart-home lighting, and coiled radiant heat. The exterior is stucco, and the entry features a cozy, covered porch. Inside, the floors are dark hickory, the living room has a wood-burning fireplace, the dining area has a built-in, granite-topped buffet, and the updated white kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and a glass tile backsplash. The master suite with walk-in closet is on the garden level, and there’s a balcony off one of the upstairs bedrooms. Refreshed bathrooms boast upscale features including a clawfoot tub, heated tile floors, and a walk-in shower. The backyard has a spacious deck and mature shade trees, plus a new, two-car garage with access to an alley.
