Property description

If your sensibilities and preferences run towards a private, quiet hid-a-way that is beautiful, peaceful, with miles of trails from your flowering back yard, Wonderland lake a 30 second walk away, and the whole north Boulder complex of stores and eateries two blocks away, then this solar town-home may be your perfect vacation destination or retreat getaway.

It’s location on open space is prime, yet inside you feel like you are in a sanctuary with rugs and tapestries from all over the orient, original art throughout, custom made furniture, handmade ceramic tableware made by your hostess.

This three story home hosts both dining and living, access to outside both front and back, powder room, kitchen and entry way on the main floor. The upper floor has the master bed, bath and closet, full second bathroom, office and a reading room or study, while the lower floor has W/D, 1/2 bath, second bedroom, as well as a full studio should you wish to bring your paints and brushes, the easel and your creative inspiration await.

This is a perfect home for one or two couples or individuals if you value a quiet aesthetic comfortable home within easy reach of all this area has to offer, however we do not accept more than four people resident in this home, at any time.

Should you wish to explore a fun sustainable urban lifestyle, there are bikes to be rented within an easy walk. Two blocks away, a bus line that will take you downtown if you choose not to either cycle or walk. Within the home itself the chance to compost, recycle should that appeal to you, all the while being powered by the generous Boulder sunshine.

This home has both AC, full house fan, shady back yard, outdoor eating, whole house WI-FI, high quality natural bedding and mattress, natural non chemical cleaning products used, views of the flatirons and the foothills, outdoor grill, infrared indoor sauna, upgraded everything. Reduced rates for longer stays.

We ourselves live 'shoes off' to keep the home clean and protect the rugs and maple floors. This is also our strong preference and request of our guests.

PEASLE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT ADVERTISE ON CRAIGSLIST to avoid any possibility of scammers and all financial transactions are executed only through this site.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: This is our primary home, but each summer we pile our golden retriever into the car and journey to a remote island up in B.C. Canada where we farm, retreat and live very simply. That is why our Boulder home is now available on VRBO for four summer months. We are both recently retired psycho therapists, living out 'golden years' by pursuing a creative life writing, being a potter, artist, reading and spending time outdoors with our dogs, deepening friendships and visiting and being visited by children and grand.

Why Boulder:
We choose to move down from our precious house in the mountains because we wanted to spend less time driving. We valued the chance to live close to the open spaces and walking trails that Boulder has to offer, yet be close enough to walk to our local coffee shop and the best organic market in town. We outfitted the townhouse with solar panels and proceeded to modernize and upgrade all the systems. Now it provides the best of both world and is so quiet, it's hard to even sense that other people live next door. We were really wanting to live a sustainable urban life yet still be in easy access to the natural world with all it's creatures.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This became our home of choice because it's so utterly private, comfortable, sustainable and quiet. In the summer, it's shaded and cool, in the winters it's abundantly sunny warm and bright. We downsized to a home that is welcoming but not grand, aesthetic but not showy. plush but not full. Spacious but every space useable. For us, it was important to have a studio space for me as well as distinct rooms that would allow for quiet reading or writing areas. We love the outdoor access. The open views of the front range and from the upper bedroom the flatirons. It has a good feeling of ease and peace.
