Views Abound in a Unique, Sustainable Boulder Home

It’s in the Details

Seven-inch rift and quarter sawn oak flooring. LED light strips hidden within the living room ceiling beams. A limestone plaster finish for the wood burning fireplace. It’s the details and craftsmanship in this house that truly makes it a highly unique and highly livable home.

Play Hard

With a pickleball court and a family room set up to transition into a flex space ready to be used for ping pong, yoga, and a perhaps even a dance floor (to name a few), this home is laid out ideally for entertaining and a variety of activities.

A Room With a View

According to the homeowners, their kitchen boasts one of the best seats in the house when it comes to enjoying their vast views.

“The kitchen is our favorite area,” the homeowners say, “and the counter is the perfect spot to enjoy our coffee in the morning while looking out at the water, the Flatirons, and the big Colorado sky.”

Perched in a perfect position from which to bask in beautiful lake and Flatirons views, this Boulder home embodies what many would call prerequisites to living in Boulder. A little eclectic, a hint of playfulness, and a lot of focus on living sustainably, this home was designed with reverence and appreciation for the natural areas surrounding it.

With the goal of creating an open concept home that felt both modern and welcoming, the homeowners worked with local Cottonwood Custom Builders and HMH Architecture + Interiors to bring their vision of a home in sync with the outdoors to life.

“We specialize in building energy efficient dwellings,” says Jeff Hindman, president, founder, and owner of Cottonwood Custom Builders. “We promote green building and giving back to the community, and we focus on using sustainable building materials and providing exceptional attention to detail.”

Simple, purposeful details play a large role in making this home comfortable and concise, helping it to feel spacious while remaining environmentally efficient. While floor to ceiling windows offer exceptional views of the neighboring reservoir and Flatirons, clear vertical grain cedar siding and paneling wraps from its outside to the inside, merging the two seamlessly. Crafted to maximize its views and exist in harmony with its surroundings, this home exemplifies Boulder living.
