Property description

Escape to downtown Boulder and enjoy our beautiful 4 bedroom home in the heart of it all. Recently remodeled in 2011, our home offers all the amenities needed to feel right at home. We are in close walking distance to Pearl St Mall, the University of Colorado campus and football stadium, restaurants, bars, microbreweries, shopping, and all the recreational activities that Boulder has to offer. Located in a highly desirable, small neighborhood perched on a bluff just north of Pearl Street, the views are expansive and above the treeline of downtown Boulder. The location is truly a hidden gem, right downtown but lifted above on a quiet and peaceful street.

If there is a chef in your party, the kitchen is sure to please. With professional style Thermadore appliances including wine fridge and heat lamps, you have all the tools to turn out an amazing dishes for your party. Our pet peeve with traveling is having to purchase all the small ingredients needed even for simple dishes. Not the case here. From a variety of premium olive oils, sea salts, and vinegars to a well stocked spice cabinet, feel free to take a little and leave a little. If you come when the garden is in bloom, fresh vegetables and herbs are right outside the door. The kitchen openly adjoins the living and dining spaces in the great room, creating a very social environment.

The master suite is located on the second floor of the home, which features a king bed with built in reading lights and private bathroom with double vanities. Also on the upper level is a second bedroom/den and bathroom. This spare room can be used as a private den or pull out the queen plus sized sleeper sofa for an additional bed. This is not your average sleeper sofa – it is a new American Leather Comfort Sleeper that does not disappoint for a great nights rest. American Leather is the only manufacturer with a sleeper sofa that uses a memory-foam mattress that’s made of Tempur-Pedic’s Tempur material (no springs or bars). The third and fourth bedrooms are on the main floor past the office nook and are separated by an additional full bathroom. One has a queen bed, the other a full.

We have a full washer/dryer, central heat and AC, high speed internet, 2 flat screen TV’s, ceiling fans in every room, grill, and full patio sets front and back.

This is our primary residence, so no large parties are allowed. The garage and master closet are owner lockout areas and will not be accessible.

We sincerely hope you enjoy our home. Please let us know anything we can do to help your stay be more enjoyable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We migrated to Colorado from Illinois and southern California to enjoy all the beauty and mountain sports this state has to offer, and haven't regretted a day of it. Often we can be found wakeboarding, hiking, skiing, biking or enjoying a favorite camping spot. There's nothing we enjoy more than coming home after a day of activities to pop some corks and lay down a wonderful meal with friends. Steve and Shawna Peterson

Why the Owner Chose Central Boulder, Boulder, CO, USA:
Downtown Boulder is a popular destination, and our property is an oasis within walking distance to everything but perched above it on a private bluff. In fact, many friends who grew up in Boulder never knew this small neighborhood existed until they came up for a visit.
