Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are a married couple of 30 years and we have a 12 year old daughter. We do fine wood working and pottery.

Why the Owner Chose Sunshine Canyon, Boulder, CO, USA:
We love this location. We can enjoy peace and quiet, or go into town for some downtown fun. We will often go up to Gold Hill (a historic gold digging town) and go to the coffee shop, hear live music and eat a five course dinner in their lodge.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is beautiful with wonderful woodworking and artful detail. The colors are so beautiful and the lay out is great. The kitchen is full of light, lots of counter space, a large six burner stove for all of you 'foodies' and large cottonwood counters. The patio is off the kitchen and almost every meal in the summer can be eaten outside! The large deck upstairs is 20 X 20 ft. with a beautiful view. Dusk is a wonderful time on the deck either for a glass of wine or fun with the kids. We play games, read, look at the stars and sometimes sleep out in sleeping bags! The trip to town is short and convenient for dinner out or shopping.
