Located half-way between Denver and Colorado Springs (approximately one hour from either Denver International Airport or the Colorado Springs airport), boasting one of the finest school systems in the country, and featuring wooded, secluded home sites, Larkspur, Colorado has become one of the preeminent choices for residential growth in Colorado. 

Jon Thiessen has served the Larkspur, Castle Rock, Sedalia, Franktown Area since 1994, working for both buyers and sellers. Well grounded in the local covenants and knowledgeable in historical and present policies, local builders, lenders, and resources, Jon will handle any real estate transactions in the area for either investment or permanent residence.

Lots in a residential area are typically sold by the builder of the area; they usually offer to build a custom home from a pre-chosen list of architectural plans. The builder usually owns the entire subdivision and handles all aspects of the home site.

The areas around the town of Larkspur offer an exciting alternative in custom home building. Although many homes have already been built and are available on the market, there are still a few undeveloped lots. With subdivisions planned long ago, each lot is individually owned and offers the new homeowner the opportunity to either purchase a custom home specifically built by a local general contractor, or to plan and build the home of their dreams. With some areas recently opened up with paved roads, sewage, electricity and gas, and with others planning to have these services offered in the future, these home sites are ideal for both immediate ready-to-build opportunities and future investment choices.

With these facts in mind it's obvious why the homes in the Larkspur area are not built "one size fits all" on postage stamp sized quarter-acre lots. Each home has been custom built, from how the driveway approaches the house through the ponderosa pine trees to how the home is actually placed on the 1-5 acre lot, taking advantage of hills for walk-out basements and privacy.

If you choose to build your own home, there are many friendly experts available in the local area. Whether you want to be your own general contractor, or hire one of the experienced local general contractors, the high rate of building activity throughout the area south of Denver ensures there will be available building supplies and subcontractors to do a first class job on your home in an expeditious and timely manner.
