This modern, stylish Newlands home is located on large
corner lot on a quiet cul-de-sac off Kalmia Avenue in a
premiere North Boulder location, close to Sanitas and
Wonderland Lake open space and trails. Well-placed
windows and striking architectural elements showcase
views of the nearby Foothills. Light streams in throughout
the home, most notably through the walls of glass doors
and windows that open to the expansive South facing
patio and yard. The oversized lot is ¼ acre and offers a level
fenced yard with plenty of space for recreating to the
South, vegetable gardens to the West and buffer from
neighbor to the East.
The two-story main entry provides a striking entry to this
remarkably well designed home, offering access to the
attached two-car garage and to the outdoors via a beautiful outdoor rock garden. The space opens into an inviting
great room containing the living, dining and kitchen areas.
All sides are surrounded by windows and lead out to the
sun drenched yard and patio with fire pit. Creating effortless flow for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining, the
layout is at once stylish, comfortable and functional.
The sophisticated lighting and gleaming dark wood floors
create a space that highlights the clean lines of this
remarkable room, with a wood-burning fireplace and
brightly colored sculptured surround serving as the
modern, cheerful centerpiece. A Nelson bubble pendant
hangs in the dining area framed beautifully by the asymmetric corner window.
The kitchen is outfitted with abundant cabinetry, an open
alcove pantry, and a tucked-in office nook next to the side
door. The large central island serves as an ideal focal point
and gathering space in the kitchen and is very functional
for cooking and entertaining, with two sinks and bar
seating. New appliances include Miele cooktop and downdraft, double Miele ovens, including convection and
combination convection-steam oven.
The powder room, discreetly located near the entry and
stairs to both lower and upper levels rounds out the offerings on the main level. Recently updated with a new toilet,
Hansgrohe fixtures and Flavor Paper wallpaper.
Upstairs opens onto a large common area, surrounded on all
sides by light and mountain views, creating a room that is architecturally impressive and suited to a variety of purposes,
accented by two David Trubridge lights. Currently a children’s
playroom, this space will also work well as a family room, home
office, studio or exercise space.
The master bedroom suite design is European inspired with
clean lines, an abundance of light and inspiring views of the
Foothills through well-placed windows. The master bathroom is
understated and tasteful. The two additional upstairs
bedrooms share a well-designed bathroom and continue the
theme of thoughtful design and light filled spaces. Both
bedrooms have an accent wall of designer wallpaper that adds
a “heart-felt” touch to these lovely rooms.
The basement features an open living area with wood burning
fireplace and modern surround similar to the one in the main
living area. Currently used as a craft room, this space is also well
suited as a recreation or media room. The basement also
includes a private guest bedroom and bathroom. Recently
installed grey toned carpet lends a fresh feel and adds softness
to this useful bonus space.
The home was designed with thoughtful attention to
energy-efficiency with hot water baseboards and Runtal radiators fueled by a Munchkin boiler controlled by five zone
thermostat system. Energy efficient windows and abundant
natural light create comfortable temperatures year round with
an Evaporative Cooler providing cooling in warmer months.
A security system, including motion detectors and five thermostats takes advantage of “smart house” technology, controlled
by mobile phone.
The current owners have painstakingly refurbished this beautifully designed, modern home to a like-new standard by refinishing the kitchen, all the wood floors and walls, installing
energy-efficient LED recessed lighting throughout, along with
new faucets, toilets, appliances and sleek, modern covers for the
All in all, this is a distinctive property that offers light-filled style
and comfort in one of Boulder’s most coveted neighborhoods.
