5420 Garrison Street, Arvada
Open Saturday, 1-4pm.
From the street, your first impression of this home is a small bungalow with a 1-car garage, but peek behind and you notice an oversized 2-car detached garage of matching brick construction. This home is being sold by the same man who bought it in 1965 and did some amazing improvements. After returning from combat duty in Vietnam, he had the basement dug out, creating a 9-foot ceiling, walk-out stairs to the backyard, concrete floor and stone-faced wood-burning fireplace (see chimney in picture), and he later installed a French drain and built that garage, which is fitted with 220-volt outlets inside and out! The house itself has two bedrooms and two baths, hardwood floors, a high-efficiency gas furnace and includes all kitchen appliances plus washer & dryer. There’s a large covered concrete patio behind the house, plus a grassy backyard enclosed by a new 6-foot privacy fence.
