Jewel-like Sanctuary Chautauqua

$1,233,500  |  October 2014

This exquisite Chautauqua property boasts wonderful light, an inviting floor plan and various enchanting outdoor living spaces. Set on a tree-lined street near University Hill and surrounded by other single family homes, this home was originally built in 1928 and has since been thoughtfully expanded and remodeled. The views of the nearby Flatirons are a stunning backdrop to the property’s mature, beautifully landscaped grounds.

The main level is comprised of a warm and open living, kitchen and dining area, plus a cozy den/family room, with a main floor bedroom with bathroom. The recently updated kitchen, designed with elegance and quality, features stainless steel appliances, wood cabinetry of sage green for the lower cabinets, and white with glass for the upper cabinets, plus a center island, all clad in warm-toned granite. All the colors in the home are peaceful hues of greens and earth tones.

The main living area features an abundance of windows on all sides with a rear and side door leading to the sumptuous outdoor spaces. The backyard is a rare oasis of privacy, with two ponds, a roof top deck above the garage (currently used for bee-keeping) and a canopied al fresco living room. All this within the context of fragrant shrubs, trees and flowers.

The upper level has three lovely bedrooms: a west facing master suite with private balcony garden and hot tub; a guest room and a large bedroom currently used as a lavish home office. The office was formerly two bedrooms, that have since been combined, creating a large room showcasing a bank of South facing windows letting in tremendous light and views of the Flatirons. The laundry room is also on the upper level, along with a second bathroom serving the two secondary bedrooms.  Numerous skylights throughout the upper level add to the feeling of light and spaciousness.

The HVAC system consists of a recently installed high efficiency boiler and euro radiators on the main floor and a furnace (installed 2007) and A/C on the upper level. A one-car garage, accessed from the street, and unfinished basement (good for storage) complete this unique offering.

829 13th Street is a gracious sanctuary of European style and comfort in a peaceful downtown location, blocks to open space trails, yet convenient to shops, schools, restaurants, downtown Boulder and the cultural and recreational amenities of nearby Chautauqua Park and CU.
