Property description

This beautiful and very unique horse property is located on 8 acres and only 10 minutes north of downtown Boulder. Creeks, mature trees, ponds, and verdant green pastures grace this private oasis that cultivates a fern grotto feel that is highly unusual in the dry Rocky Mountain air. The owner is an experienced VRBO host and has successfully managed a vacation rental on Pearl St in Boulder that has received only five star reviews (Boulder Creek Carriage House VRBO # 431895). However, she only recently listed this most special property for the very first time. This newly renovated 3 bedroom 3 bath is perfect for nature lovers and cosmopolitans alike.

The sprawling grounds offer manicured lawns, multiple decks, outdoor grill and winding paths with private sitting areas along the creeks and gardens. The house is surrounded by beautiful flower beds with fragrant roses and lilac trees. A creek runs the length of the property and offers calming sounds through almost all of the windows in the house. Nature enthusiasts will be thrilled with the array of wildlife on the property. Sit under one of the hundred-year-old trees and listen to the multiple bird songs. Watch the migrating flocks passing by as you realize you are underneath an established flyway for multiple species as well as exquisite birds of prey such as red tailed Hawks and bald Eagles. Look for the great blue herons as they land in the ponds in early morning. You will imagine you have stepped into a natural aviary.

The house is newly renovated with new granite countertops, stainless steal appliances, Jacuzzi tub, and hardwood floors.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream, boasting a gas range stovetop, two ovens, Viking appliances, farmhouse sink and an unobstructed view of the surrounding property through 360 degrees of windows. Right off the kitchen is a beautiful lower leveled living area with a wood-burning fireplace, perfect for cozy gatherings or quiet reading corners on chilly nights Journey up to the formal dining area which offers a wine chiller and wet bar.

There are three large bedrooms to sleep 3-6 adults. One of the three bedrooms have its own bath. The second and third large bedroom with two bay windows has a bath and shower if it's own that is shortly down the private second level hall. Each room offers luxury linens, easy restroom access, and large windows that invite scenic views of the property. The house has three full bathrooms, one with a Jacuzzi tub and shower and the other offering a steam shower.

Downstairs is a remodeled entertainment room with windows looking out onto one of the beautifully manicured yards and gardens. The entertainment room offers a 50’’ plasma TV, wraparound couch, and pool table all for your enjoyment.

Make this beautiful farmland retreat your home away from home.

Car: Recommended

This rental property is less than 10 minutes from downtown Boulder, Colorado which offers any amenity desired. However, since the property in located on the outskirts of town, guests may also enjoy the many activities available in a more rural setting. The Boulder reservoir offers boating and swimming and there are dozens of hikes located under a mile away. The property is located on a low traffic road offering great opportunities for biking and running. In addition there is an abundance of wildlife that find this private oasis a perfect home. A forest of mature trees provide soft forest paths for late night strolls under the stars. Grazing horses, streams, ponds, and green pastures round out the picture. The peaceful quiet along with the privacy and space to gather and play or relax makes this the perfect retreat for large families. A huge deck facing west with hot tub and barbecue offer a perfect outside space for sunset dining or an early morning sunrise through the trees that is truly exquisite! Hang out in the hammock strung right across the stream or shoot baskets on the tennis court that serves as a multi-purpose play area for box hockey, tennis, and basketball just for starters. Badminton on the lawns and horseshoes in the sand pit offer something for everyone. Watch the sun go down behind the mountains as you relax in the hot tub just off of the southwest deck underneath a 140 year old cottonwood that graces the entire back pasture with shade and enormous beauty. Toast another great day as you consider whether tomorrow you head to Rocky Mountain National Park through only scenic roads from this house to the continental divide or whether you ride bikes to the lakes and trailheads less than one mile away. You can even ride into Boulder on only dirt roads and scenic trails all the way! Sleep to the sound of rivers and swaying breezes through the trees. Wake to the canopy of beautiful birds flying and singing just overhead. Chuckle at the amazing variety of hummingbirds in the morning as you sip your second or third latte because you just can't break away. You will swear you are in paradise! And you are.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: I came to Boulder 30 years ago to complete my PhD at University of Colorado. Needless to say, I fell in love with the mountains, the canyon, the rivers, and the town. I established my psychology practice here and originally lived in this beautiful property on West Pearl Street. It was very special even then because of the easy access in all directions to everything I loved...rivers, bike trails, canyon, and beautiful, beautiful town. It has only become even more gorgeous with time. Because I love horses too, I eventually moved to an equally beautiful small farm north of Boulder where I train and ride my horses every chance I get. I am happy to share with you all that I know as a local about Boulder city and the surrounding mountain areas. We are very lucky to live here and I am happy to share it with anyone who appreciates all that this part of the country has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Longmont, CO, USA:
Uniquely positioned just far enough from the traffic, noise and congestion of Boulder and yet only minutes to all that Boulder and surrounding towns as well as the canyons/mountains have to offer. Rocky Mountain National Park is less than 30 minutes away and the drive from this property to the Park is only on scenic mountain roads which again maintains your connection with the mountains and nature and temporarily relieves your sense of congestion that our cities ( and most of our lives) has created.
