Property description

Boulder Cottage. Beautifully renovated & close to everything the city and mountain environs have to offer!

This circa 1900 cottage is located just four blocks from the heart of Boulder and the Pearl Street Mall. Located in the historic Mapleton Hill neighborhood, this 2 bedroom, 1 ½ story home is only 4 blocks from Mt Sanitas hiking trails, Boulder Creek biking & running paths, North Boulder Park and a few extra blocks from Alfalfa’s Market as well as the Ideal Market/ Community Plaza shopping center. All can be reached via bicycle or foot- and that doesn’t begin to cover all the restaurants, shops and other amenities nearby. You can rent a car, but don't really need one unless you intend to drive to the mountains or down to Denver for a larger city 'fix'. This can be your car- free get away!

Summertime fun is close by; including hiking, biking and running trails (Boulder County has over 400 miles of them!) and wintertime sports are only 45 minutes away for skiing or snowshoeing in the Indian Peaks Wilderness or at our local Eldora Ski Resort. Winter Park, Breckenridge, Copper & Vail are all within 2hrs. 15min of Boulder- depending on weather/ road conditions.

Yep, Boulder pretty much rocks if you’re an outdoor enthusiast or a foodie. We're home to many natural food companies as well as a burgeoning local food movement. The Boulder Farmer’s Market runs thru early November and picks up again in the spring.

The cottage:
• Fully renovated, custom kitchen with all dishware and appliances provided
• Recently renovated bathrooms, turn of the century décor updated with a modern Asian, eclectic mix.
• Wood floors downstairs, spacious eating areas and backyard garden (with fountain) that makes the cottage feel more European than turn- of- the- century Colorado.
• Two bedroom, one queen bed master and a standard size bed in the guest room. The sunroom can accommodate a futon or inflatable bed. There is a downstairs bathroom.

I've lived in Colorado and the west for over 30 years and very familiar with the mountains and trails throughout Colorado. Happy to offer any ideas for an adventuresome itinerary traveling the countryside near and far.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I'm a management consultant and have worked and traveled in many places across the U.S. and internationally. I initially chose Boulder as my home, nearly 30 years ago, when I was a young Colorado Outward Bound School instructor. Mesmerized by the phenomenal access to the mountains, deserts and rivers of the West- I spent my 20's & 30's basically living and working outdoors. After working for several Outward Bound Schools internationally, I returned to Boulder in 1991 to begin a consulting and training practice. It has the perfect combination of small city living, is close to a larger metropolitan area (Denver) and an airport that can get you anywhere you need. On top of that- its probably one of the most energetic environments you'd ever want to visit. Close to running, hiking, biking and climbing (for all levels) as well as great food and access to creative people who live here for a myriad of good reasons. Its cliche to those who live here and the thousands who visit every year- but it really is one of the best places to live (or visit) in the U.S... or anywhere, for that matter.

Why the Owner Chose Mapleton Hill, Boulder, CO, USA:
I chose to live here because its a community that attracts adventurous types as well as creative people pursuing their aspirations. I was lucky enough to buy a house near the foothills so I could jump on my bike or lace up my running shoes (between client calls) and still make it back for another appointment.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Why this cottage? * Close to everything that Boulder and our Mountain Parks have to offer * Restaurants, shopping and many amenities are accessible by foot or bike * I've been a local here in Boulder for almost 30 years. I can give you the latest information on restaurants, hiking & biking trails as well as just 'live like a local' options.
