Located between the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains and Downtown Boulder you are just a ten minute walk to your morning coffee or a mountain trail! Recently remodeled, our home retains the charm from 25 years of family fun! ENJOY!
Located in Newlands, one of central western Boulder's most desirable neighborhoods, our completely renovated (in 2014) home is 4 blocks to the Sanitas hiking trail system, and a delightful 20 min walk to Pearl Street through Boulder's most popular neighborhoods, Newlands and Mapleton Hill.
North Boulder Rec Center is across Broadway (9 blocks), and the neighborhood is anchored by North Boulder Park which has acres of grass, a baseball field, a playground for children, public BBQs, and spectacular views of the Flatirons, making it particularly nice for families.
The kitchen/family room area is wonderful for hanging out and spending time together, and is equipped with all you'll need to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner: pots & pans, small kitchen appliances (blender, coffee maker, toaster, etc), kettle, mixing bowls, cooking utensils, baking dishes, serving dishes, measuring cups and spoons, etc. Dishes, flatware, glasses, mugs, salt & pepper mills, creamer & sugar bowl, and placemats are also furnished. The dining table easily accommodates 8 people, with more room for dining on the magical patio. There is a gas grill on the upper patio. The yard is beautifully landscaped and maintained with a new hot tub available for your enjoyment. It feels very private and peaceful.
Big groups will feel comfortable in this space and will love watching movies and playing games together here. We provide Premium Cable with HBO, Showtime & Netflix in the living room. We have secure high speed WiFi.
The upstairs master bedroom has a queen bed with a gorgeous view of the Flatirons to the south, Dakota Ridge to the west and an en suite bathroom with an extra long double ended soaking tub and large shower, both with views of Dakota Ridge. A roll out bed could easily be accommodated in this bedroom for children. The second bedroom upstairs has a double bed and features an en suite bathroom set under the eaves. The shower window in this bathroom peaks out over the city skyline. This bedroom also has a balcony that looks west to the Flatirons.
All sheeting and duvet covers are made of cotton. We use natural materials wherever possible.
This is a single family home with plenty of unrestricted off-street parking.
The whole house, decks with patio sets, gas grill and hot tub.

My wife and I have lived in Colorado for 25 years! We raised three children here that are all out of college now. Being empty nesters we rent out our home when we travel.
I work for the University of Colorado in the Transportation Department. I enjoy riding my bicycle, playing in a "dad" band and dabbling in photography. My wife is a second grade teacher and enjoys reading, hiking, conversation and hosting community parties!
