Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: We are coaches, leadership consultants and run retreats on skillful relationships for couples. We are also artist/musician/dancer. We are blessed to be able to travel to wonderful places to teach which is why you have the option of renting our wonderful home. Two of our three grown children and our 7 yr old grandson live here in Boulder.
Why the Owner Chose Boulder: We have lived in Boulder for 28 years and in this home for 25. We are often told we have the best house and location in Boulder. To be able to see the lake from every window, walk outside, climb the hills and still be just a few minutes from all the action downtown-- it doesn't get better than this! We remodeled it recently and it is beautiful and very comfortable.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Ourr home is a treasure we are happy to share. Mornings and evenings in the hot tub watching the changing skies. Dinner on the deck, reading napping, spending time with friends and family; or off exploring. The views from inside are always reminding us of the beauty of where we live. Our large light-filled rooms offer spaciousness and privacy while also making it easy and comfortable to be together.
