About Villa Park Homes

Villa Park Homes includes a four-bedroom, two­-bathroom home and a three-bedroom, one-bathroom home, with outdoor storage sheds and two dedicated parking spaces included with each unit. These two single-family homes are being built in tandem on one large lot but with their own yards and parking spaces. This setup allows Habitat Metro Denver to utilize this land to its fullest potential to provide affordable homes to two separate buyers.

Villa Park Homes sit right across the street from Dry Gulch Park and the Lakewood Gulch walking path, meaning the families who live here will have easy access to green spaces and trails. These homes being built just west of Federal Boulevard and just south of Colfax Avenue, a quarter-mile from the RTD W Line train, making it easy for future homebuyers to access local transit and commute to work or school.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of the U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
