3665 Paonia St. Boulder

New Modern Home In South Palo Park

$1,500,000 | July 2017

Located in the coveted Kalmia38 neighborhood, and recently built by esteemed Markel Homes, 3665 Paonia is a contemporary home with an open floor plan, great bedroom layout, and beautiful finishes. This home is situated on a 6,000 sq ft lot and features a modern style, high ceilings, beautifully landscaped, private fenced back yard, and an oversized 2 car attached garage.

Entering the main floor, to your right and  through glass French doors, is a conveniently located main floor home office with abundant light through windows on two sides. Walking into the open main living area, one immediately notices the spaciousness and loft of the ceilings, warmed by the beautiful 4” cherry floors throughout and the expanse of west facing windows and glass doors to the back deck and tastefully landscaped yard. An inviting space to enjoy, to gather and to entertain.

The kitchen features a large center island, and plenty of storage with custom cherry cabinetry. The upgraded appliances include a Thermador refrigerator and freezer, double Thermador ovens, a 5 burner Thermador cooktop with hood, as well as a Thermador microwave. Grey Caesarstone countertops and a blue-grey glass tile backsplash round out the stunning kitchen. The layout of the kitchen is ideal as it faces the open living area, connects nicely to the dining area, and has great access to the covered patio through sliding glass doors. The living area features a gas fireplace with handsome stacked stone floor to ceiling mantle. Conveniently located off the kitchen is a large mudroom with a built in closet and direct access to the attached garage.

The cherry wood floors continue up the stairs to the upper level landing area, which extends to a bonus open space. Perfect for lounging or yoga, with plenty of floor space and terrific light, this space was designed as the perfect location to house a future 4th upstairs bedroom. The second level currently offers 3 bedrooms, including the sumptuous master suite. The two secondary bedrooms are well proportioned and feature walk-in closet space. One bedroom offers an ensuite bathroom while the other accesses an adjoining bathroom off the hallway, that would be shared if a 4th bedroom were added.

The master suite boasts soaring 14’ ceilings, with corner double-height windows that extend from floor to ceiling, along with a west-facing balcony overlooking the backyard. The luxury bathroom features heated floors, hot water recirculation to ensure instant hot water, with a large soaking tub and oversized shower, as well as a walk in closet with plenty of space for two. The master bathroom also showcases an unobstructed view of the Flatirons.

The unfinished basement provides great storage or rec space, with the potential to finish the basement and, with existing egress windows and rough in bath, an additional bedroom and bathroom could easily be added. Nest thermostats on the main floor and upper level provide efficient control of a 3-zone heating system. Additionally, extra insulation was added to all walls and the ceiling between the upper level and the main floor for quiet enjoyment in all rooms of the home. Hunter Douglas honeycomb window treatments throughout add a soft touch to the abundant windows.
