2260 Linden Dr. Boulder
Home On .8 Acre in Carolyn Heights
$1,211,250 | May 2013
Carolyn Heights is the only neighborhood in Boulder with large estate lots (that cannot be subdivided) that is convenient to downtown Boulder, shopping and schools. The lots on the south side of Linden enjoy full day sun, views and are typically .8 acre or more. Many of the homes on this street are new construction properties valued at $3m+, with mature trees and huge level backyards. This is one of the few neighborhoods in Boulder that supports the sale of high-end luxury homes, boasting 2 of the most expensive homes sold in Boulder last year.
The current 4000 sq ft home is a 1968 ranch home with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an oversized 2-car garage. An extensive remodel was completed in 1988, adding more square footage to the east and south to create a master suite and family room, with a remodeled open kitchen and larger bedrooms. At that time, the foundation was expanded to create a larger basement with egress windows. The home has a large, low-maintenance South-facing deck off the family room, mature fruit trees, a koi pond and multiple organic vegetable beds.
This is simply one of the few remaining lots in Boulder where it is possible to build your dream home: southern exposure and a huge level backyard on almost an acre of land make it possible to build an 8000+ sq ft home above grade, including a garage, accessory dwellings, and plenty of room for a pool.
