What’s Behind Door Number 3? – It’s the Garage!

Real Estate Agent with United Country Ponderosa Realty

The other day, one of my associates of the other gender noted that NONE of HIS associates of the other gender included inside photos of the garage in the MLS.

I’m positive both men and women agents omit interior photos of these humble, hardworking, utilitarian buildings.  Let’s face it, often they aren’t that well lit nor are they THAT “attractive”. Most have concrete floors and four walls. 

I park my car in mine and I love it for that, especially in winter.

Now, if you ask my husband about that same structure, he will point out to you that he has plenty of room for all of our stuff, necessary stuff like power tools and lawn tools.  He has shelving on which to place more stuff and hangers to hang stuff and extra lighting and outlets for working in there. 

The garage is his domain.  It even has a wood stove to keep him warm while he works in winter. 

He cleans it, organizes it and loves it.


I’m fortunate to represent several homes that actually have a garage (while many homes in the greater Red Feather Lakes area don’t) and THREE of them are in Glacier View Meadows.  I do feel badly for not showcasing them properly. I apologize to the garages and all garage lovers across the land....

Therefore, I present to you the GARAGES OF GLACIER VIEW MEADOWS:

Here’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a Garage in the world renowned Glacier View Meadows Subdivision in Livermore, Colorado, just minutes away from private community hiking trails and stocked fishing ponds, the Roosevelt National Forest and the quaint Village of Red Feather Lakes.

Surround yourself and your vehicle in understated luxury and protection from inclement weather. Discover the peace of mind that these incredible structures provide.  These well appointed buildings are each adorned with an automatic garage door opener, I.O.L. (instant on lighting at the flip of a switch) open beamed ceilings and  perfectly situated to enhance your daily lifestyle.


The main entry is a true masterpiece with lovely and level troweled concrete floors. 

Indulge yourself in the unique utility of these stunning shelters in this scenic region of Colorado.



But, you must see them in person; there will be no interior photos online.  I still maintain those photos are just not THAT appealing.

You can probably imagine “What’s behind Door Number 3” – it’s the garage!

Thanks Kristi,  I sure haven't been able to take any interior photos that are worthy of sharing!


Hi Debra, yes they are, thanks.  Because some homes are mainly used as weekend/vacation homes- some might not mind if there isn't a garage- but most want a garage here, too.

Hi Mary-I do love those garages. They are beautiful and wonderful to have in the winter climate. Interior pics of anything is OK as long as they are neat and well lit. CONGRATS on the feature my friend.

Those pics could have been taken of my garage in Westcliffe! =o) It had a view that would rival most peoples homes, just like your photos! SO true in the mtns, folks want to see where they are going to stash their "toys" RV's, snowmobiles, tractors, etc. Our 2 car garage was 1200 sq. ft. with storage and additional heated rooms, find THAT in the city! LOL Nice post!

I always try to include a photo of the garage because depending on where you're looking to buy a home in Sacramento, a garage might be a luxury. Not every home comes with a garage in some neighborhoods. And if i'm shooting a low-end home, I include interior shots of the garage, as well as a high-end but for opposite reasons. Median price ranges, no.

Thank you Sharon!  Those flowers are beautiful!  You're right, a garage is very nice to have especially  in winter climates.


Hi Cheryl, your old  garage sounds like a dream!    Have you ever staged a garage?, just wondering:-) Thanks for stopping in and so sorry to get back here so late, I didn't receive an email notification for your comment or Sharon's!


Hi Elizabeth, not all homes here have garages either, so it  is a luxury.  Thanks for your take on those interior shots, it's something to think about.
