About Sara

I purchased the home based on its great location! It is my primary residence but I travel frequently for my work as an executive coach and leadership consultant. Our work takes us around the globe, but we always return to this sweet home and Boulder!

Our house is walking distance to what we love: hiking, cycling, yoga classes, live music, excellent restaurants, coffee shops, events at CU & great people watching on Pearl Street Mall!

Our grandchildren also love the house, with its large yard and easy access to Pearl Street Mall, play grounds, ice cream shops, North Boulder Pool, hiking and biking.

Sara purchased this house in 1998

Why Sara chose Boulder

Boulder is amazing! If you love the great outdoors, there is so much going on here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Boulder for the graduation of our son. It snowed during the evening, but we woke up to blue skys. This is a perfect setup for an alternative to staying in a hotel We would much rather do this than a cramped hotel room.

We wish we had found this four years ago. I can't think of anything that your home lacks, Thank you , thank you, thank you.

Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Sara's home. It was well equipped and comfortable. The home was cleared of owners personal belongings- so lots of space to put things away in closets, fridge, etc. The back yard was nice and had cozy table and chairs to hang out and enjoy my morning coffee. The location close to Whole Foods Ideal market was a bonus, and other restaurants and shops. Easy walk to Pearl Street too. We would love to come back.

Great location. House had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

House is located just few blocks north of Pearl (about half mile) & few blocks east of the start of Mt Sanitas hike. We walked everywhere. There are two adult bikes too. Also easy to drive to Rocky Mtn Park (about 1 hour).

House was stocked with plenty of cookware, washing machine, etc. Would def stay here again.

Note the house is across street from a school so might be noisy during school year and house next door is being renovated so was a lil loud during day.

The house was perfect for my family and me. The owner was very accommodating and had all the comforts of home and then some. It truly was a kid friendly house and walking distance to everything in Downtown Boulder. I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone especially those with small children!
