Our home was built in 1923, and recently renovated top to bottom. We worked with architect Steve Perce of BLDG Collective to open and expand the floor plan, and to make a true indoor / outdoor, family friendly space that is bright, modern, clean, and comfortable. Our home was recently featured in a local design magazine, for a story titled 'Great Spaces.'

The center of the house is the kitchen / living area, which has huge sliding patio doors open to a large, grassy backyard complete with dining patio, gas grill, and lounge chairs beneath tall maples that provide shade in the summer. The covered front front porch is a great place to sit and have a cold drink in the evening. Hardwood floors, Carrara marble, and original artwork are throughout the 3000 square foot space.
There is an office with full bath on the main floor that is a peaceful, sunny place to work or read. It can also double as a 4th bedroom.
The house was designed and built for our family of four, with occasional visits from friends and parents. Upstairs, two kids rooms with a twin bed each share Jack + Jill style bathroom. Three joined wooden doors from the original 1923 house provide privacy for the master suite, (also upstairs) which has a king bed, and a spectacular 12' wide, floor to ceiling window that looks out at leaves, sky, and the sunrise. The master bath has dual sinks with Carrara marble, a glassed in thermostatic rainshower, and a Duravit soaking tub also with a leafy window view. There is a roof mounted, ducted swamp cooler that brings fresh, cool air to each of the three upstairs bedrooms on warmer evenings.
New for 2017-2018 is a six person hot tub just out the back door.
In the basement, there is wall-to-wall carpet and a kids' playroom with two more twin beds. The basement stays cool in the summer. Our guests that stay in the basement use the full bath on the main floor. There is also an AppleTV with a projector and sound system that is great for watching movies.
The house is a beautiful 10 minute walk from Downtown Boulder, and the shops and restaurants of Pearl Street. Our neighborhood is very walkable, with sidewalks, gardens, historic homes, and tall, beautiful trees. We also have bicycles in our bike shed to get you around town via the world class network dedicated bike lanes and paths. There is a public pool (Spruce Pool) two blocks away, which is a great place to take kids on hot days.
If you want to spend time in Boulder hiking, riding, walking, lounging, or eating delicious food, you can do it all from here, without any need for a car.
