Boulder house description

Our 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom Whimsical Ranch is the perfect place to gather with family and friends to enjoy the best of Boulder's nature and culture. Originally built in the 1960s, the house has been immaculately maintained and features many original modern details. Light and airy in some places, and cozy and secluded in others, this house really lends its self to spreading out and settling in.

Located in Newlands, one of Boulder's most desirable downtown neighborhoods, the house is 1 block to the Sanitas hiking trail system, and a delightful 15-20 min walk to Pearl Street through Boulder's most popular neighborhoods, Newlands and Mapleton Hill. North Boulder Rec Center is just down Forest and across Broadway, and the neighborhood is anchored by North Boulder Park which has acres of grass, a baseball field, a playground for children, public BBQs, and spectacular views of the Flatirons, making it particularly nice for families.

The kitchen is conducive to hanging out and spending time together, and is equipped with all you'll need to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner: pots & pans, small kitchen appliances (blender, coffee maker, toaster, etc), kettle, mixing bowls, cooking utensils, baking dishes, serving dishes, measuring cups and spoons, etc. Dishes, flatware, glasses, mugs, salt & pepper mills, creamer & sugar bowl, and placemats are also furnished. We provide kids’ plates, cups, cutlery and a high chair so it will be easy to take care of little ones. The attached dining room has floor to ceiling windows with views of the foothills so that you can enjoy the setting while cooking and dining. The dining table easily accommodates 8-10 people, with more room for dining in the magical courtyard. There is a gas grill in the courtyard too for your grilling pleasure! The courtyard is substantial, the whole house wraps around it so it feels very private and peaceful.

The living room is a great size for this house with a huge couch, generous chaise lounge, and side chairs. Big groups will feel comfortable in this space and will love watching movies and playing games together here. We provide Premium Cable with HBO, Apple TV, Netflix, and secure high speed WiFi.

The bathroom closest to the second master bedroom was just remodeled in June 2013 with attention to making it fresh and new, while maintaining the feeling and spirit of the house. We're very proud of it and think it's been a wonderful improvement!

The house features 4 bedrooms and sleeps 10 people. The front bedroom has a king bed and en suite bedroom. It is very private and separate from the rest of the bedrooms which are toward the back of the house. The second bedroom features a queen bed and is adjacent to the sunroom where there is also a queen sized futon. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds, and the 4th bedroom, which is also sort of a master, has a king bed with a spectacular leather headboard and bed frame.

All the mattress are brand new memory foam pillow top mattress with natural bamboo/silk ticking. All sheeting and duvet covers are made of white cotton and the duvets and pillows are all down and feathers. We use natural materials wherever possible. Non-feather pillows may be available upon request. We also proved a pack-n-play for little ones, so actually the house sleeps 10 plus a baby.

This is a single family home with room for 2-3 cars in the driveway and plenty of unrestricted off-street parking.
