Boulder house description

Gorgeous ivy-covered Dutch Colonial on a tree-lined, boulder-strewn street in one of Boulder's most desirable neighborhoods. Bright and sunny. Hardwood floors throughout. Idyllic custom landscaping in back with a sunken patio and both a lanai and a balcony overlooking it all.

The Boulder Experience: 5 blocks from Chautauqua Park, home of the Chautauqua Summer Festival and the Colorado Music Festival, as well as some of the best hiking and rock climbing anywhere. 3 blocks from the shops, restaurants and live music venues of The Hill. Less than 2 blocks from one of the world's most beautiful university campuses, home of the C.U. Presents Concert Series of world-class classical, jazz, ballet and theater performances, the annual Conference on World Affairs (free to attend), the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, museums, a planetarium and an observatory (with free-viewing Friday nights), bowling lanes, restaurants, and an independent film series showing movies a few nights a week. 30 minutes from Eldora Mountain Resort Ski area. 45 minutes from Estes Park.

Take the path through the beautiful campus and come out onto The Boulder Creek Bike Path, which continues along the creek up into Boulder Canyon, or get off at the famous Pearl Street pedestrian mall within a mile of leaving home. Or ride west from the house instead and arrive atop Flagstaff Mountain, overlooking Boulder Valley, within a mile of leaving home.

Boulder has won just about every shiny happy lifestyle award a city can: Healthiest, Most Educated, Most Bicycle-Friendly, Best Place to Live, Best Place to Raise a Family—-the list goes on. And in 2010, it added one more: Bon Appétit's Foodiest Town in America.
