                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About: This is our primary home, but each summer we pile our two dogs 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.
