The 312-unit Villas at Homestead, located at 6857 S. Homestead Parkway, less than 1 mile from Villas at Holly, consists of one-half and two-story buildings featuring one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The property features amenities such as a clubhouse, waterscape, a fitness and a business center, a swimming pool, playground, tennis court and spa. Villas at Homestead was recently sold for $65.4 million to Jackson Square Properties.

“Renovated units are achieving rent premiums of more than $200 per unit, and the buyers have ample opportunity to continue the lucrative value-add strategy,” Hunt, said in prepared remarks. “Both Villas at Holly and Villas at Homestead are well-located assets in a high barrier-to-entry market; high construction costs and site scarcity in Centennial underscore the significance of the sale. Villas at Homestead feeds into the Cherry Creek School District, which is widely recognized as the best in metro Denver.”

Both properties are close to the Denver Tech Center, to Denver’s only IKEA store, as well as the 1.6 million-square-foot Park Meadows Mall. Earlier this year, ARA Newmark closed the $26.3 million sale of 144-unit Villas at Holly to Triumph Properties Group.
