Maximizing Boulder's views & weather, this open & airy retreat will immediately put you in Vacation Mode. Ditch your car keys and skip the parking hassles, traffic and noise of downtown -- you can easily walk/bike anywhere from here. Feeling lazy? Uber shows up in 5 minutes and is under $10 for such a short distance. Enjoy up-close mountain views from the Living Area & Front Porch. Watch the sun set over Mt Sanitas on the turfed roof deck. Due to the elevated perch, you can see over town to CU's stadium & beyond when hanging in the kitchen or rear deck.
Filled with natural light & offering breezy indoor/outdoor flow, this is an ideal property for larger groups that need ample space to spread out and relax. Very livable and family friendly, the abode also works well as a location to collaborate, mixing business with pleasure. If you're into design, you should be happy here: custom artisan details, an eclectic mix of vintage & modern furnishings & a playful art collection create a pleasant environment.
Please Note: We have 3-night minimum stays on all weekends & holidays; unless there are not 3 consecutive nights available on the calendar... then we will book a 2 night minimum. Exceptions are sometimes made in Nov thru Feb -- please inquire.
LOCATION: The Newlands neighborhood is loved by locals because (1) you simply can't get any closer to the mountains, and (2) downtown is only a 12 block stroll when you want to be there... but this area remains peacefully free of parking issues, noise & traffic. Mt Sanitas trail is 4 blocks from the front door. North Boulder Park (3 blocks down) is a great spot for picnics & sports; and it has a wonderful kids playground. Our neighborhood retail center (Ideal Market area) offers Whole Foods, wine/spirits shop, several local restaurants, coffee/tea shops, ice cream shop, bakery, pizza house ... pretty much everything you may want is conveniently located right down the hill. When you are ready, a 15 minute walk (or 5 min bike) through the beautiful Mapleton Historic District lands you smack in the middle of Pearl Street's action.
FUNCTIONALITY OF THE HOUSE: This is an ideal property for groups that want to enjoy time together, but would also appreciate multiple in/out lounging areas to escape to for some privacy. There are 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths total. We have an air mattress (can be set up in the office to create a "5th bedroom" if needed). We can provide a Pack-N-Play and/or a booster seat for little ones, & the couches in downstairs TV Lounge also convert to 2 single beds if needed.
MAIN FLOOR LIVING AREA: Kitchen/Dining/Living/Office -- All Open Flow -- connecting from the Front Porch straight through to the Rear Deck. Master Suite is also on this level.
MAIN FLOOR MASTER SUITE: French doors open to an outdoor seating area overlooking the back yard. The master bath offers a huge soaking tub & separate shower. A dual-sided gas fireplace is visible to bed & bath. A 50" flat screen TV is concealed within the wall. The loft above master opens to a lovely turfed roof deck with stunning views of Mt Sanitas & Dakota Ridge.
LOWER LEVEL, EAST SIDE includes 2 bedrooms, a TV Lounge; and a Full Bath: When you walk downstairs, you reach a landing. The door on the left reveals Bedroom 2, which includes an attached TV Lounge. There is a large couch, a 55" flat screen TV & a large glass slider that opens to a very private back yard. To the right of the stairs is Bedroom 3. This is the only bedroom that does not have its own private seating area within. Bedrooms 2 & 3 share a full bath, which is conveniently accessed from the hallway (it is not a jack-and-jill setup; so the bedrooms enjoy more privacy).
LOWER LEVEL, WEST SIDE offers an InLaw Suite: A bit more removed to maximize privacy, this spacious InLaw Suite has a small seating area w/ flat screen TV and an efficiency/wet bar with table/desk. A private bathroom is attached.
-- Two gas fireplaces, one in the living room and one in master.
-- Two offices: the loft above master is best for quiet conference calls. The main office is off the living area with views of Dakota Ridge (if needed, this can be a 5th bedroom).
-- During the winter, Radiant In-Floor Heat keeps the house cozy and is very efficient
-- During the summer, an evaporative cooling system provides an eco-sensitive alternative to traditional AC (No Central Air... don't worry, it’s cool & comfy in summer!)
-- Pro grade 6 burner Gas Stove with Double Ovens in the Kitchen.
-- 3 flat screen TVs: one in the TV lounge downstairs; one in the Master Bedroom; one in the InLaw Suite. All have cable & the various streaming options.
