About David Cleveland, owner

We've lived in Boulder since 1982. Spruce Roost was our first home. We loved the neighborhood and being so close to downtown, and we'd love to share our experience with you.

David Cleveland, owner purchased this house in 1985

Why David Cleveland, owner chose Whittier

Why did we buy this house? Just take a walk through it and you'll see why. It is a lovely Victorian remodeled to let in wonderful light. It is a 'character house.' No Jacuzzis here, just a wonderful cast iron claw foot tub that may well be original, exposed beams, and real plaster walls. The skylights and vaulted ceiling give it an up-to-date feel that blends the best of the past and present.

What makes this house unique

It's a unique house in a wonderful location. Victorian charm, modern amenities, and a block off Pearl Street. Experience Boulder at its best!

Great location in Boulder

  • 4 of 5

My 18 year-old daughter, husband and I stayed for a week in August. The location is perfect, within walking distance of everything on Pearl Street. The space is nice, with a reasonable living room that opens to a dining area. The kitchen is a bit spare and old fashioned, but quite functional. The beds are all comfortable and the front porch is a nice place to sit, any time of day. The house is old, which is part of it's charm. However, this means that the bathrooms are spare and small and the overall feel of the house is a bit rustic. The house has great light via a range of skylights and there is a dedicated off street parking space, which is very convenient. The owner, David is very responsive.

quaint quiet and functional

  • 4 of 5

The charm of this historic cottage with close proximity to downtown suited our visit to Boulder. We enjoyed walks around the area including Pearl Street Mall, rustic neighborhood, shops, hotels, restaurants, immensely. Also, the house was well equipped with everyday household supplies too.

Perfect location. Beautiful home. So much more light than I expected. We dined out as Pearl street is so close. It snowed during our visit and before we awoke the sidewalks had been cleared. Dave, the owner, was very responsive to questions and the check out process was the easiest we have ever experienced. Great town, great experience.

What a charming home away from home with wonderful Decor and wood stove within walking distance to trails, bars, restaurants and movie theater. The kitchen was well equipped for a holiday meal for 6 and our host provided wine and essentials upon arrival. Highly recommend!
