A home in Cherry Hills Village was sold for the first time in 28 years in May, and its price of $ 4.9 million was the top local home sales that month.
Located on 1620 E. Layton Drive, the 12,775-square-foot secluded brick mansion sits on 2.6 acres with a private driveway near a path that is listed to lead to Woody Hollow Horse Park.
It was bought by Amelia and Matt Hayden, according to public records. Last August, the couple sold another home at 4101 S. Colorado Blvd. in Cherry Hills Village which was the biggest local sale that month.
The property on Layton Drive was sold by Nikki C. Moller, who bought it with her late husband George Moller for $ 822,400 in 1993.
The ground floor has a new white gourmet kitchen, private study areas, a billiard room and a spacious master suite.
Outside, the fenced property includes a tennis court, raised garden beds, and space for a future pool, according to the listing. There is also an attached three car garage and a separate two car garage.
