Phenomenal Downtown Boulder Location

$1,400,000  |  November 2014

Set on a tree-lined street just 2 blocks from the Hotel Boulderado and nearby Pearl Street, this historic Whittier home, situated on a full lot, boasts classic lines, thoughtful updates, great views, and a phenomenal downtown Boulder location.

Originally built in 1895, this gracious and well-maintained home showcases an inviting lawn and front porch, offering plenty of depth for a table and chairs. Through the front door you enter a classic Victorian parlor with high ceilings, wood floors and tall windows bringing in an abundance of light. The main living area consists of open living and dining areas that seamlessly flow into a tasteful addition that houses a large eat-in kitchen with Shaker-style cherry cabinetry, gas stove and central island. The kitchen is flanked by windows on three sides and opens onto beautifully landscaped gardens. The fenced backyard is truly an oasis with a soothing pond, full of floating water lilies and koi, and the ever-present sound of the delightful water feature. Another downtown rarity is the 2-car detached garage with alley access and plenty of room for storage or a workbench. The main floor also features a large main floor bedroom with classic bathroom and laundry room.

The handsome hand crafted staircase leads to the spacious upper level, featuring a large en suite bedroom with original pine floors. The master bedroom suite is comprised of several rooms: bedroom, solarium, sitting room, plus walk-in closets and a large master bathroom with a double vanity, a classic claw foot soaking tub and a steam shower. The custom cabinetry in both upstairs bathrooms is cherry with understated jade colored soapstone tile. The sitting room could easily double as a nursery, home office or work-out/yoga room. The solarium has windows on three sides, tile floors and is plumbed for an indoor garden. It opens up to a large West-facing deck with spiral stairs that lead down to the back yard. The southwest views of Sanitas from the master suite and adjoining deck are magnificent.

Mechanical updates include a brand new 96% high efficiency boiler, and 2 evaporative coolers.

If you are looking for a light-filled historic home with downtown convenience, but don’t wish to compromise on modern updates like open spaces, an expansive master suite, a modern eat in kitchen, and a private yard and 2-car garage, then we invite you to tour 2325 13th.
