Unique Boulder Real Estate Opportunity

kitchen.jpghouse-pics-023.jpgThis is a wonderful piece of Boulder real estate and an amazing property in many respects.

With outstanding views of Mt Meeker / Longs Peak from the living room, master bedroom and deck it’s an exceptional location.

The floor plan is an updated version of a 1950’s style ranch that was modifieddiningroom.jpg to accommodate a modern lifestyle. It was built in 1987 by the Boulder Area VoTech Building Trades Department. What’s actually a strong positive about this is the Vo Tech BTD classes are taught to utilize the BEST way to build and in many instances go well above common building codes.

deck.jpgThe deck wraps around to the east end of the house giving almost panoramic views to the east and south. Sitting at the top of the Crestmoor Subdivision at the end of the Crestmoor Drive cul-de-sac, you’re in peaceful isolation but only a couple of minutes from the heart of Boulder.

rec_room.jpgThe fully finished walk-out basement has lots of storage as well as two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a huge family room / rec room with lots of light and a very special insulated and soundproofed music room. (even the space between upper floor and music room ceiling is insulated) There’s also a shop / utility room with a deep utility sink.

With almost a 3/4 acre lot (.73 to be exact) and a vacant lot that the seller owns (and is willing to sell) there’s an amazing sense of privacy and spaciousness.

rec_room.jpgUpstairs on the mail level of this ranch style home are three bedrooms, master bath, full bath in hall, separate laundry room in main hall with lots of storage, living room, dining room, bonus office/bedroom and kitchen with breakfast nook.

Parking includes an attached two car garage and an adjacent packed gravel parking area to the south east which easily accommodates a recreational vehicle, trailer, or even a vacation motor home.

For example, this home has all floor joists on 12″ centers (rather than the typical 16″ centers), the door jambs are all metal-reinforced at all corners for strength and durability and all the work throughout the process is supervised and inspected by both Vo Tech instructors and professional contractors. Any work that didn’t meet the high standards set by the school and contractors was corrected and perfected.

snow2.jpgAll the floors in the Dining Room, Living Room, Hall, Office/Front Bedroom and Music Room are cherry wood. All the carpeting on the main floor was replaced in September of 2007.

The main floor bathroom floors are travertine tile. The main entry is ceramic tile and the lower main entry area in the finished walk-out basement is commercial granite tile.

All interior doors are solid wood.

The kitchen floor is honed 18″ slate, the counters are slab granite and all the appliances were replaced with new units in August of 2007.

back_lot.jpgThe seller reports that the hill to the north is owned by the Boulder Public works and was purchased in the early 1900’s for a proposed water tank to provide pressurized water to the city of Boulder. More modern water systems developed before the dity completed an installation of a tank and the plans were abandoned due to lack of need.

The land to the east is owned by the City of Boulder and is City of Boulder Open Space.

Baseline Lake recreations memberships are normally available for homeowners in the Crestmoor subdivision neighborhood. Boat memberships are on a waiting list for Baseline Lake.
