$861,000 | November 2017
Located in the popular Boulder Country Club neighborhood, this 4200+ sf home in Gunbarrel Green, boasts high ceilings, light-filled spaces and a terrific family layout. Set at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this nearly ½ acre lot with large yard and 3 car garage is an easy walk to various neighborhood trailheads, not to mention the golf course and amenities offered at the nearby Country Club. The home is also distinguished by the fact that it was newly constructed in the early 90s, whereas most of the other homes in this neighborhood were built in the 60s/70s. This translates to large windows, vaulted ceilings, well proportioned rooms, flowing open living spaces and a very functional bedroom layout.
Entering the home, one is greeted by soaring 17’ ceilings in the entryway. The entry flows directly to adjoining living area, facing south, and the dining area, which looks out over the park-like side yard, both with vaulted ceilings. Adjoining the dining room, is the kitchen and family room, that look out over the lush back yard. Through large glass sliding doors in the kitchen/family room area is an expansive back deck, leading to a large patio area and the manicured back yard. The outdoor living spaces expand on the flowing, open floor plan in the main living areas and make for great indoor/outdoor living and entertaining.
The kitchen is remodeled with granite countertops and new appliances. An eat-in breakfast bar is the perfect spot for gathering and a space for a casual dining table separates the kitchen from cozy family room. The family room, with vaulted ceilings, is centered on a gas fireplace with mantel and marble tile.
Also on the main level, accessed via the 3 car garage, is a convenient mud room space with cabinet storage, ¾ bathroom and laundry. The office/bedroom in this wing of the home provides enough separation from the main living area to provide privacy and separate access for home office or main level guest space.
The upper level has a idyllic layout with a spacious, lofty master suite overlooking the backyard and two additional bedrooms also on the upper level yet set apart, affording the master suite a welcome sense of privacy. The master bedroom is accessed via double doors and has vaulted ceilings, adding to the spacious feeling. The master suite boasts a walk-in closet and recently remodeled 5 piece luxury master bathroom, offering updated cabinetry, tile, granite, tasteful fixtures, frameless shower and jetted tub. The two secondary bedrooms, both well proportioned, with lots of windows and great light, share a remodeled bathroom.
The real surprise of this home is the lower level. With garden level windows (½ above grade) the rooms on this level get ample light and create an ideal space for younger children or teens, with 3 bedrooms, remodeled bathroom and large central family room/rec space and massive storage space.
For families moving to this coveted area of Boulder with school age children, the other rare bonus to this neighborhood is that high school students have their choice of two outstanding Boulder public high schools: Fairview or Boulder. There are plenty of good choices for lower and middle schools, including Heatherwood Elementary and Platt Middle School. Boulder Country Day, Boulder Valley Waldorf School and Mountain Shadows Montessori (pre-school only) are also nearby private school options.
The outdoor spaces at this property are varied and attractive for families with children of any age. The property is fenced and the back yard feels very private, with a paved basketball court and plenty of green lawn for throwing or kicking a ball. The side garden with water feature on the west side of the house feels like it’s own distinct oasis, separate from the backyard. The front of the property is thoughtfully landscaped with hardy, south facing plants and a dry creek bed. The property looks directly across the cul-de-sac to a neighboring property with a park-like side yard with tall grasses and lovely flowers.
For gear enthusiasts or those with an RV, motorcycles, golf cart, boat and/or trailer, this property has a rare gated utility area with Tuff Shed, that sits to the east of the garage and is conveniently accessed via the 3 car wide driveway. The oversized 3 car garage is insulated and has ample room for cars, gear and workshop with shelving, cabinetry and enclosed attic space.The upgraded Chamberlin belt drive garage door openers are whisper quiet. The driveway, with south facing exposure has the Colorado sun quickly clearing any snow accumulations.
The home has central air conditioning, a furnace system with updated return air ow and Nest app thermostat. The 6.7 kW SUNPOWER Photo Voltaic system is leased at a cost of $57/mo, offsetting the home’s energy needs.
The virtues of this attractive neighborhood, minutes from downtown Boulder, cannot be overstated. In addition to nearby Boulder Country Club, with health club, pool, restaurant, tennis and golf, the area is home to many wonderful nature areas for hiking, bird watching and fishing opportunities, including Boulder Creek, Walden Ponds and Sawhill Ponds. There is also an immense trail system on Heatherwood Hill that allows for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and also offers an off-leash area for dogs. This area also accesses the East Boulder trail system which leads south to Valmont and then Arapahoe Rd. This neighborhood also offers easy access to the Twin Lakes area with more hiking/biking trails, and off leash area for dogs, with access to Niwot and Longmont to the northeast and Boulder to the southwest.
Gunbarrel is also home to shops and restaurants, including many revered brew pubs including Avery, Finkel and Garf, Vindication, Asher Brewing, and New Planet.
All in all, this property is an amazing value for those looking to be near Boulder, yet desire the remarkable space and layout of this home and the amenities that this wonderful neighborhood offers.
