Modern, Brand New Construction
$1,475,000 | August 2017
Set back from the street on an oversized lot in North Boulder, this newly built (2014/15) Modern home features stunning architectural lines, an abundance of natural light and great indoor/outdoor flow. Located close to Wonderland Lake in the Lucky’s market area, this extraordinary property is a rare oasis in a coveted neighborhood.
Entering the home, past a well-appointed mudroom, one is immediately struck by the open feel, amazing light and soaring double height ceilings on the main level. The kitchen features a large center island of Caesar stone complemented by beautiful Italian glass tile. The kitchen is welcoming, ideal for entertaining and gathering, and designed to be functional, with plenty of workspace. From the kitchen island, you look out to a large green yard, made more remarkable with the glass garage door that not only allows great light into the home, but can also be raised to literally open the main floor to the expansive yard. The eye can’t help but drift up to the lofty ceilings and abundant double-height windows to the custom-made stainless steel railing – a striking design feature.
The master suite is located on the main floor, and features a walk in closet, and comfortable master bathroom with an oversized steam shower. Also on the main floor is a 2nd bedroom, currently used as a TV/media room with in-wall surround system, and another room that is perfect as an office. A ¾ bathroom serves as a powder room and additional bathroom on this level.
The 2nd floor features two large bedrooms, sharing a Jack & Jill bathroom, currently outfitted with 4 separate sinks. Both bedrooms offer plenty of space and storage. The open, upper level hallway also features built in bookshelves and space for a desk.
The yard is private and feels like an extension of the home. An old barn has been updated and finished, with central heating and double pane windows, offering a creative space for a kids play area, yoga studio, or additional storage. The outdoor grill is plumbed with natural gas and the lawn is irrigated. The outdoor walkway makes use of photo-cell lighting and the gate to the property has dual auto controls.
The systems in the home were all designed with efficiency and comfort in mind – an on demand hot water heater, central A/C and a wireless Nest climate controlled system. The home also has a built-in fire sprinkler system. An exterior perimeter drain around the house connects to a sump pump.
This home is conveniently located just steps from the Lucky’s market shopping area. Lucky’s market is a terrific neighborhood Supermarket offering fresh meats, fish and local/organic produce. In addition, the shopping area offers Boulder’s BEST pastry shop, beloved coffee shop, several good restaurants, local theater and much more. This neighborhood is also home to numerous award winning private and public schools and pre-schools, including Jarrow Montessori, Shining Mountain Waldorf, Journey School and Crestview Elementary and Centennial Middle School. And just a couple blocks away, across Broadway, is easy access to Wonderland Lake and the extensive network of trails that lead North or South along the foothills. And along Broadway runs the SKIP bus with convenient service every 10 minutes to downtown, Pearl St and South Boulder.
