2044 Walnut Ave Unit B, Boulder
Downtown Boulder Loft-Style Condo
$960,000 | October 2017
The Walnut Creek neighborhood, an enclave of luxury townhouses, is a coveted downtown neighborhood, one block from hip East Pearl. This lofty upper level unit in the heart of Walnut Creek is a complete rebuild (inside & out) of the original historic home, creating a stunning blend of traditional and contemporary styles, featuring 13 ft. cathedral vaulted ceilings, walls of windows on each side and a large south facing terrace. The high end finishes include Carrara Marble countertops, gleaming 5“ wide walnut floors, designer lighting and GE profile appliances.
The ground floor entry level features a spacious mudroom with plenty of closet space, and access to the attached garage, which the owner has converted to a stylish studio and home office. The space can be easily converted back to a garage, and there is additional covered parking for two cars available in the adjoining covered carport. The upper main living area is accessed via custom built staircase, in an open vestibule, surrounded by walls of windows.
The main living area features an open kitchen, dining and living areas, anchored by a stunning center island topped with a thick slab of Carrara marble and surrounded on all sides by windows. Dark wood Ultracraft cabinets, white subway tile backsplash, glass upper cabinets and high end stainless steel appliances make for a timeless look and style. The lofty ceilings and windows everywhere make for an incredibly light filled and airy space.
The south facing terrace flows seamlessly from the main living area and the wall of windows and French doors to the south bringing abundant light and tremendous passive solar in the winter months. In most seasons, this fantastic extension of the living space makes for extraordinary indoor/outdoor living. The mature trees and a seasonal stream that flows through Walnut Creek also bring a rare dose of the natural world into this urban locale.
Two main floor bedrooms are both filled with light. The master bedroom features a custom walk-in closet and sumptuous master bathroom clad in Carrara marble. The lighting throughout the home is absolutely exquisite with chandeliers in both bedrooms and in the garage studio.
Conveniently located just blocks from the Pearl Street Mall, the Spruce St. Pool, the 29th St Mall and Whole Foods, this home is walking or biking distance from all that Boulder has to offer. A few blocks away are Whittier Elementary School, an International Baccalaureate School, and Casey Middle School, offering a well-regarded bi-lingual program in English & Spanish. 2044 Walnut offers the rare combination of a stylish and beautiful loft-style condo set in a quiet oasis, steps away from all that downtown Boulder offers.
