Boulder house description

This bright, welcoming house sits atop a magical, secluded knoll in downtown's Old North Boulder neighborhood. The flow of the space is comfortable and inviting and takes advantage of the home's expansive views. The decor is designed to be warm, chic, and inviting and we've taken care to make it family friendly with a high chair, kids dishes and utensils, and a crib.

All 3 bedrooms are appointed with brand new pillow-top mattresses with natural bamboo ticking. There is 1 King bedroom, 1 Queen bedroom, and the third bedroom has 2 Twin beds.

The kitchen is fully outfitted for cooking meals with pots & pans, small kitchen appliances (blender, waffle maker, coffee maker, toaster, etc), kettle, mixing bowls, cooking utensils, baking dishes, serving dishes, measuring cups and spoons, etc. Dishes, flatware, glasses, mugs, tea pot, salt & pepper mills, creamer & sugar bowl, and placemats are also furnished.

The living/dining room is super comfortable, perfect for hanging out and overlooks the foothills, as does the kitchen. It has a new Samsung LED HDTV with Premium HD Cable including HBO and Apple TV. Of course, there is also secure high-speed internet. And, we offer a land line with a local telephone number.

Enjoy harvesting fruits and veggies from the garden. We grow tomatoes, basil, lettuce, arugula, swiss chard parsley, and more in the raised vegetable beds that you are welcome to enjoy from the Spring to the Fall. There are also raspberry bushes, peach trees, and an apple tree to graze from in the garden.

The property is ideally located between the exceptional restaurants & boutiques on Pearl Street and the Ideal Market Shopping Center where there's a neighborhood Whole Foods, Pharmacy w/Post Office, Bakery, Coffee Shop, Florist, Dry Cleaner, Barber, and several more great restaurants. The downtown Pearl Street pedestrian mall is exactly 1 mile away and takes about 10 mins to walk to, Ideal Market Shopping Center is just 4 blocks up the street, both are lovely walks.

CU and Naropa are both easily accessible by foot, bike, bus and car, and the main bus station that has routes to DIA and Eldora Mountain Ski Resort are also a short, scenic walk of about 1 mile.

This house is the entire second story of a duplex. It is roomy at 1200 sq ft. and private because of its unique topographical location. From the house, you can gaze out across the tree tops of the city to the mountains.

There is off-street parking for 2 cars in the driveway where there is a carport, a nice feature when it snows in the Winter. There is also plenty of parking on this quiet street.

Secure bike and ski storage is also available.

              Car: Not Necessary

              This house is ideally nestled between Pearl Street and the Ideal Market Shopping Center so there are lots of fun shops, cafes, and restaurants in 2 directions. Walk out the front door to scenic hiking trails, playgrounds, and Boulder's bountiful Farmer's Market. There are also nearby schools, a library, the North Boulder Rec Center, which is nicely appointed with a kids leisure pool, lap pool, squash courts, tennis courts, weight rooms, classes and much more. Bike paths and bike lanes are plentiful in this area so bring your bike or rent a cruiser just up the street and drop it off at any B-bike station around town. CU and Naropa are easily accessible. This is the best spot in town!


              Manager info

              About: Oliver is from New York City but grew up in Boulder while Whitney is from LA. We met at CU where we both graduated from the Film School. We enjoy travel, real estate, interior design, photography, cooking, gardening, hiking, biking, swimming, delicious restaurants, family, friends, and film!

              Why Boulder:
              We used to live at this house and it is an awesome place to live! We were inspired to offer it as a vacation rental when we moved to another home close by, but lamented how we would miss living here. Its such an easy, enjoyable, inspiring place to live with its simple, modern layout, manageable size, convenient location, and spectacular views. Even though we no longer live here, it's fun providing this accommodation to people visiting Boulder and it makes us happy to stay connected to this home.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              One of the best things about this house is how it is quiet and peaceful yet right in the middle of the best that Boulder has to offer. It's so easy to walk to lunch, dinner, the coffee shop, grocery store, or farmers market - and the views never get old.
