Quiet Elegance in a Pastoral Boulder Farmhouse

Perfectly combining the charm of Boulder’s rural open spaces as well as accessibility to its exciting downtown urban hub, this is a home that brings together the best of what Boulder living has to offer. Situated within a picturesque pastoral landscape with 270-degree views of the plains to the east and mountains to the west, this home and property exude both cozy comfort and luxury living.

“For a family, this property is a quiet, peaceful refuge from the busy, bustling world,” says Carliss Erickson, listing agent along with Jeff Erickson, exclusively with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. “At the same time, it’s just an easy ten-minute drive from Downtown Boulder.”

Formerly part of a Colorado Homestead, the property harkens back to a simpler time while still including all the comforts and amenities of luxurious modern living. Surrounded by an immersive natural setting of established trees, this property consists of a seasonal creek, pasture fields, an eight-stall Gardener barn with a riding arena for horses, ample water sources that provide opportunities for organic farming, and an outdoor swimming pool encompassed by gardens. The home’s indoor and outdoor living spaces seamlessly transition from one to the other, inviting its occupants to enjoy the outdoors from its multiple porch areas perfect for taking in spectacular sunrise and sunset views.

The home itself is a sterling example of a simple, elegant farmhouse style. The large chef’s kitchen is ideal for entertaining large groups or hosting intimate dinner parties. Three beautiful fireplaces add coziness and grandeur to the home, with one fuel-efficient, wood-burning fireplace in the outdoor screened-in porch, as well as two floor-to-ceiling stone gas fireplaces serving as statement pieces in the Great Room and the study. The home is bright, airy, and welcoming, its impeccable design complementing its sweeping views and setting at every turn.

“The views of the mountains and plains from this property likely look much the same today as they did 150 years ago,” says Erickson. “It’s a property that leaves an authentically Colorado impression.”
