Fall is here and, according to the Denver Metro Association of Realtors (DMAR) Market Trends Report, so is a bit of stability for Denver’s luxury real estate market.

“Balance is evaluated through inventory levels, days on market, and close price, among other criteria,” explains Nick DiPasquale, DMAR Market Trends committee member and a metro Denver realtor. With school back in session, demand is beginning to wane while supply increases in the metro area’s luxury segment. Nevertheless, “navigating the current housing market requires a good game plan and lots of patience,” DiPasquale says.

Whether you’re drafting your buying or selling game plan or simply browsing, here are four standout luxury homes racking up the views.

The Modern Brick House

1055 Josephine St., Denver ($3.3 million)

This new, five-bedroom brick house is ideal for a growing family. Fireplaces and natural wood finishes add warmth to the home’s sleek palette. Strategically placed French and sliding doors lead to an expansive patio and lend themselves to year-round entertaining. Upstairs, the bedrooms feature large windows and vaulted ceilings, while the primary bathroom flaunts a double shower, freestanding soaking tub, and Art Deco finishes. The impressive basement is delightfully organized with two additional bedrooms and bathrooms, a gym, rec room, wet bar, and wine storage. This modern home sits less than a mile east of Washington Park, in Denver’s Bonnie Brae neighborhood.

The Mondrian

1 S. Forest St., Denver ($5.795 million)

From the outside, this modern mansion is reminiscent of a Mondrian painting with its flat roof and boxy windows. Built in 2021, its design complements Coloradans’ love for the outdoors: Two NanaWalls link the open-concept living room and kitchen with the backyard’s saltwater pool, hot tub, and swanky outdoor kitchen. The 8,454-square foot house offers plenty of indoor amenities, too, from an enviable, 16-foot-long kitchen island to a gilded shower bench in the primary suite. Located in the affluent Hilltop neighborhood of Denver, this house—built on a double corner lot—is equidistant to both Cranmer and Crestmoor parks.

The Modern Mountain House

1733 Montane Drive East, Golden ($5.9 million)

This two-acre property is nestled into a ponderosa pine forest in the foothills of Golden. Inside, the home’s double-height great room features floor-to-ceiling windows that frame alpine views and stone accents. Built in 1990, the 10,094-square-foot mansion offers all of the necessary amenities—from two private offices to an oversized hot tub—for residents to transition from working at home during the day to entertaining and unwinding at night, all in a picturesque setting.

The Ranch Estate

2300 Willow Creek Drive, Boulder ($7.5 million)

Perfect for elite athletes, this 24-acre ranch is being sold by University of Colorado Athletic Hall of Fame member and former CU Athletic Director Dick Tharp and includes a detached, 4,000-square-foot gym. A fully equipped barn caters to the equestrian set, and the property borders open spaces that cannot be developed. Inside the 6,793-square-foot house, an open-concept living area is well-suited for large gatherings, while a den, office, and five bedrooms offer spaces to retreat. Built in 2005, the ranch is in East Boulder, just minutes from the CU campus and downtown Boulder.
