$1,500,000 | May 2016

Set on one of the most stately blocks of University Hill, this sun-filled brick home, built in 1922, set on a triple lot (9142 sq. ft), is tastefully remodeled, maintaining the charm of a historic home. Lushly landscaped with a large yard and trellis-covered patio, this property offers a terrific balance of open and intimate spaces, both indoor and out. The street offers a canopy of lovely mature trees and a location that is blocks away from the abundant trails and amenities of Chautauqua Park and CU Boulder with easy access to Downtown Boulder.

The front door opens onto a whimsical black & white hexagon tiled floor foyer that serves as a handy mudroom with built-in bench, cubbies and large cupboard with shelves. To the left is the wide living area with white brick clad gas fireplace that opens onto a charming dining area and kitchen. The kitchen faces East looking out over a large deck and expansive yard. It is clad in traditional white subway tile and white shaker cabinets with black Soapstone countertops. The Subzero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher are both finished with matching white Shaker cabinetry and the Viking stove overlooks breakfast bar seating to the dining area. To the South of the kitchen is the cozy family room with walls of windows facing East and South. Adjoining the family room is a beautifully remodeled white tiled powder room. Back to the front of the house, to the right of the front door, is a handsome study with a wall of built-in bookshelves and cabinets opposite a cozy window seat. Beyond that room, through glass French doors, is a sunroom with windows on three sides.

Throughout the home are hardwood floors, 9’+ ceilings, original etched glass light fixtures, much of the original hardware, including crystal glass doorknobs, and original built-in cabinetry.

Upstairs is a spacious landing that leads to four light-filled and well-proportioned bedrooms. The master bedroom is double the size of the other bedrooms with a wall of North facing windows, with views of the Foothills. The one upstairs bathroom is spacious and flooded with light. It has been beautifully remodeled with a double vanity, original cast iron soaking tub and separate shower in a palette of clean white wainscoting, white cabinetry with glass knobs, white countertop and white hexagon tile floor. The opportunity to add an additional en suite bath and/or more closet space in the master bedroom exists due to the size and shape of the existing master. The Gambrel roof offers a more spacious upper level than other homes of this era.

The lower level, with stairs leading off the kitchen/family rooms and back deck door, was recently remodeled and includes a large rec room with built-in cabinets making this a versatile space for TV and entertainment, playroom, office, music, extra bedroom and more. An adjoining ¾ bath with marble countertop and white tile creates a functional space for overflow guests or parties. A door through the mudroom to the patio and gardens and another to the attached garage provide easy access to the outdoors. A laundry room with laundry sink complete this level.

The outdoor spaces at this property are inviting and varied, with a lovely outdoor living room under a pergola with space for couches, chairs and fire pit. The lawn, surrounded by perennial gardens and a privacy fence, is flat and expansive, with room for a trampoline and a game of croquet. The driveway to the garage, accessed from the rear alley, provides plenty of parking spaces and/or can be used as a basketball court. A wooden shed offers great gear storage or would be ideal as a playhouse.

For those who know the neighborhood, this block is especially picturesque with mature trees and elegant historic homes. The neighboring families are community-oriented and have been proactive in maintaining single-family residences on this block. Neighbors have volunteered to meet with prospective Buyers to acquaint them with the wonderful virtues of living on this street.

Chautauqua Park is a few blocks to the South, a fantastic local amenity, offering a host of year round cultural events, including films, lectures and concerts. The historic Chautauqua Dining Hall is a popular local restaurant. And the unparalleled access to miles of trails and open space highlights the primary reason this neighborhood is so very much demand – it offers the ultimate in Boulder lifestyle.

Flatirons Elementary, a beloved neighborhood school, is a few blocks away. Also nearby is Uni Hill Elementary, offering a very well-regarded bilingual program of Spanish/English immersion, and New Vista High School, a small, innovative choice school. And, of course, the CU Boulder campus, offering lectures, dance, concerts, theater and other cultural events, not to mention a bowling alley and Natural History Museum.
