Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: I found this heavenly 5 acre property in 1985 and have enjoyed every minute of working on the house and the land. While studying art for over a decade at CU, I paid my way with a wildflower business I created which also inspired me to build terraced gardens throughout this property. I'm an owner/artist of the largest art/fine craft gallery in Boulder on the Pearl Street mall. My two paint horses stay on the property in the summer months. And my loving Australian shepherd, Lucky is always with me.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder:
This is an AMAZING piece of rocky mountain paradise. A testament to the magic of this particular site, is that in 2010 a wildfire burnt the house down. Because of my background in sustainable landscaping, I relished the opportunity to restore the land and rebuild the house. In the new house, I kept what was so perfect about the original but better built, energy efficient, non-toxic building elements. Everyone who has worked on the house is awestruck by the view and the rustic/artistic elements inside and out. I am thrilled to have this second chance at sharing what we have created.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are many unique features to this property. The view, of course, strikes everyone first. It is a lovely balance of far-reaching and pastoral at the same time. People can not believe how private it is for being only 10 minutes to the edge of town. I am so proud of the materials we used in rebuilding the house, reclaiming burnt trees that we peeled and built wrap around decks with. The walls are covered with beautiful 'blue stained pine'. and a local lumber mill custom milled all the exterior window trim and deck rails in a 'rough sawn' western look.
