The priciest home sales in the Denver metro last month included two midcentury modern homes in Boulder, as well as two condos in the same building at the edge of Cherry Creek and Belcaro.
At the No. 1 spot was on the 200 block of Cactus Court in Boulder. DSH Management Trust purchased the property for $6 million from Smith Taro and Amy Lee Ippoliti, records show.
The midcentury modern remodeled by Brad Burch at IndexAD features views of Boulder and the mountains and backs to open space.
The 3,907-square-foot home includes three bedrooms and three baths, a whole-house water filtration system, and an in-house fire suppression system.
The home, constructed in 1971, was entered in the MLS for comp purposes. Jennifer Egbert with Milehighmodern-Boulder represented both the buyer and sellers.
