Boulder house description

Our 4-story mountain retreat is charming enough for two and spacious enough for twelve

Imagine waking up on top of the world with the red orb of the sun rising over the expanse of plains that spread out before you. The mountains shine golden in the west, and the huge windows on every side bathe you in light. You slip on to the porch and into the hot tub to ease into the day. The golden experience continues in the sun-drenched kitchen. Out on the lawn there are wild deer grazing. They raise their heads to look at you as you walk by but do not run away. Nature has a certain harmony here.

Strategically located in a natural setting close to town it is your call if you travel ten minutes into all that Boulder has to offer, deeper into the wilderness to explore the Rocky Mountains, or just stay home and read, watch a movie or play pool with family and friends.

The weather is one of the greatest things about being in the front range, so don't forget your walking shoes! You will be right across the street from Bald Mountain Scenic area and just a short walk from its spectacular views at the top! Just seven minutes down the road are more fabulous trails.

The house is bordered by a sheep and alpaca farm so don't be surprised to see these curious animals welcoming you from over the fence.

Historic Pearl street is just at the foot of the hill, a fun and colorful 'walking mall' where street performers abound.

For a more serene mountain experience try Lake Brainard where Elk and Moose live and snow can be seen in the middle of the summer. Great for all levels of hiking, it is also a hot spot for fly fishing.

You can access Rocky Mountain National Park by taking the award-winning Peak-to-Peak highway only thirty minutes up the road. It also takes you over to the mountain town of Nederland and the slopes and cross-country trails of Eldora Ski Resort.

Back in town don't miss the Colorado Shakespeare Festival which runs in the summer, or concerts at Chautautaqua.

It is said that there are more restaurants in Boulder per capita than in New York City. True or not there are certainly an incredible amount good restaurants!

Just at the bottom of the hill, the Boulder Recreation Center offers fitness and swimming, tennis and drop-in classes.

The Butterfly Pavilion in Broomfield and the Denver Aquarium offer great indoor activities in the unusual event of a cloudy day.

Whether your interests are recreational, culinary, cultural, or outdoors, you will have it all nearby your comfortable vacation home.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We came to Boulder after searching far and wide for the right place for us. After our third and fourth children were born we moved just up the road but we maintain a close relationship to the property through our sheep and alpacas who still live there.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder:
We love this house for its location. At once we feel peaceful and in nature, but if we forget something at the store we are close enough to run back to it. All the benefits that go with being in a university town have kept us here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house won us because it is really solid. All the wood and light really set it apart from all the others we looked at and the south-facing exposure with all the views made us feel on top of the world.
