EAGLE ROCK — The blocks north of Colorado Boulevard have long commanded some of the neighborhood’s most highest real estate prices. That was certainly the case this past summer when five properties sold in excess of $1 million.
The homes reflected a variety of styles, from a one-story Colonial-Revival with a wrap-around porch on Ellenwood Drive to a two-story Spanish-Colonial style on Like Oak Avenue that sold before it even hit the real estate listings. The most expensive home to sell this summer, a nearly 6,000-square-foot, heavily remodeled 1920s property on Hill Drive, sold last month for $1.8 million – the highest sales price in recent years, according to Redfin.
In addition to sales north of Colorado, two other homes in other parts of Eagle Rock also sold for more than a million dollars this past year.
Despite a sharp run up in prices, Eagle Rock “remains a hip, affordable and safe place to live and work with short and accessible commutes,” said Keely Myres, and agent who worked with Tracy King representing the buyers in the Hill Drive deal.
More Eagle Rock home owners are seeking to break through the million-dollar barrier. A three-bedroom, Spanish Colonial on Hill Drive was recently listed at $1.1 million, according to Redfin.
