Perks for the Parents

This stunning family home 5 minutes from central Boulder has a fantastic backyard with trampoline for the kids plus play spaces throughout. From the kitchen, with its high end built-in appliances, to the lounge, set up with 3D HDTV, and the wonderful garden, there is plenty to entertain adults and amuse children. The entire living area flows seamlessly into a stunning south-facing deck and exterior entertainment area complete with Weber gas BBQ, seating for 8, an outdoor gas fire pit and an irrigated garden. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with rain shower and tub, and there are 2 children’s bedrooms plus a study/bedroom, ideal for a nanny. The dining room has 2 Stokke high chairs and children’s dinnerware is provided. In the summer months, the kids can pick vegetables from the garden.

Why Kids Love it

This beautiful, playful house is completely geared around children. There are 2 children’s bedrooms, 1 with a full size wooden house bed (can sleep 2) and 1 with a toddler bed, both with plenty of space to play and an array of toys and books. The children’s bathroom has a shower, tub, bath toys, a step stool and a potty. The open plan living space is great for play - there is also a big cupboard with board games, puzzles, art items and toys, plus a children’s art table with supplies. Babies are well catered for with a travel crib, sheets and blankets, bouncy chair, baby bath, toys, bottles and Beaba Babycook. The grassy back yard has a 12ft trampoline and sandbox with toys, plus a kiddie pool with water toys for the summer, and the double garage contains outdoor games, bicycles and sleds.

Central air conditioning and heating throughout plus a large high efficiency washer and dryer. Shops, cafés and child-friendly restaurants can be found in walking distance.

About the Location

The home is located in a family-friendly, spacious and quiet area in North Boulder, nestled between a beautiful nature area called Wonderland Lake, where families can enjoy fishing, walking, biking and hiking, and a large park named Foothills Community Park with playgrounds, soccer fields, basketball courts and grassy areas ideal for picnics. Both areas are connected with walking trails and also connect to other nature trails in the area. It is 5 minutes from downtown Boulder and 30 minutes from the nearest ski area. Denver International Airport is a 40-minute drive away; there is a bus stop with a direct connection to downtown Boulder around the corner from the house.

Style Notes

Bright, modern and with tons of natural light. The minimalistic interior uses neutral colors and natural materials. White walls, gray accents and light oak wooden floors throughout give this home a modern Scandinavian feel. We love the playful touches in the kids rooms, the high ceiling and layout of the kitchen/diner area and the calming feel throughout.

We are an international family from South Africa and Holland and have two girls, Maya (7) and Lilly (3). We live in Boulder, Colorado and love to be outside to enjoy everything Colorado has to offer; hiking, biking and camping. We also enjoy traveling to our native countries or discovering new places.

Boulder, Colorado

Gateway to the Rocky Mountains

At the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills, Boulder is frequently ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States for its consistently sunny weather, fantastic outdoor recreational opportunities, environmentally conscious residents, and abundance of public parks and green spaces. Head downtown to the Pearl Street pedestrian mall to watch street performers, ride the free Tebo train for children, or cool off in the Pop Jet Fountain. When the snow begins to fall, head to nearby Eldora Mountain Resort or take a day trip to Vail or Breckenridge for world-class skiing and snowboarding.
