Boulder house description

Sunny, quiet, established neighborhood that's extremely close to open space trails (running, biking, hiking, dog walking), the East Boulder Recreation Center (punch passes or single use passes available - indoor pool, weights, other walk-in classes like yoga, volleyball, etc), 2 fenced dogs parks, and all bus routes. All within walking distance. The South Boulder Creek is also within walking distance and there are many miles of trails along it - some leading to downtown Boulder and others that take you south to Marshall and El Dorado Canyon.

Located less than 1/2 mile from Route 36 (Boulder Turnpike) to take you to Denver or Estes Park. Northwest Parkway - which is the quickest way to DIA from here - is only about a 5 minute drive to the NW parkway via the Boulder Turnpike.

The neighborhood is surrounded by open space, has community pool/hot tub and tennis courts for guests to use (1 block from house). There is also a basketball court, large playground on about a 2 acre community space at one end of the neighborhood - this also borders the South Boulder Creek. There are also miles of running/biking/hiking trails (South Boulder Creek trail system) right out the front door.

Situated on cul-de-sac with driveway for 2 cars and additional parking in middle of cul-de-sac (for approx 6 cars). Walking distance to newly renovated dog parks(2) which adjoins man made lake for pups to play in ... and recreation/senior center is just beyond the dog parks and outdoor raquetball/tennis courts.

The local bus routes stop along South Boulder Rd. - 2 blocks from house. Major park-n-ride on Table Mesa Rd. is about 1/4 mile from house and buses from here will take you anywhere RTD goes - DIA, Rockies games, Federal Center, etc.

Downtown Pearl Street mall and the Justice Center are approximately 5 miles from the house - easily reached by bus, car or bike (via trail system)! NCAR and the Chatauqua Dining Hall with historic areas including the Ranger Station offer tens of miles of hiking/running trails that lead up to the famed FlatIrons are about 4 miles from the property. Downtown Louisville, to the east, is about 6 miles.

We're very conveniently located in Southeast Boulder which easily gets you to downtown Denver in about 25 minutes - if you take this same trip from North Boulder it will take you about another 25 minutes.

Very clean with hardwood and tile floors on main floor - this level includes separate formal Dining room, galley kitchen with gas range, 1/2 bath, living room and deck leading to backyard. Carpeting on 2nd level where the 2 master suites with ensuite baths are located, both with walk-in closets. Garden basement (very light) has storage space and washer and dryer for your use.

Backyard has waterfall feature (seasonal), extensive flagstone patio/walkway; planting beds and private sauna (dry or steam) for guest use. The sauna house is situated outside about a 20' walk from the back deck.

A great place to come and stay while visiting your special student at CU - no more than 2 miles to campus from here - take in a Buffs game, or just come and enjoy all that Boulder has to offer. Estes Park is about 45 minutes away and Lyons (home of many festivals throughout the summer and fall) is within 30 minutes.

Tastefully decorated with original artwork and many details you won't find in other homes - all paper products, all condiments, all shampoo/conditioner provided. TV and DVD players in living room and one of the bedrooms. Leather furniture and aspen coffee table in living room, and all teak dining room - seats 6.

Close enough to open space to hear the crickets at night and the peacocks in the neighborhood settling in for the evening. A very unique experience but still in the city of Boulder.
