This lovingly maintained home is for sale in the rarely available Gunbarrel Estates. People adore this community for many reasons. First, there is an incredible park where the neighbors meet and children play. The neighborhood is also surrounded by open space where the Cottontail Trail links to the LOBO trail for miles of trail running, walking or biking. Bird watching includes bald eagles, golden eagles and nesting owls. In addition to the park and open space access, the home is zoned for the coveted Niwot Schools. This is especially important considering that their open enrollment is capped with kids standing in line, like a rock concert, for a space to open so that their out of area lottery-application will be accepted.
This warm home has had many upgrades since the long-term owners moved in 1991. Some of the upgrades include a new sewer line, a major expense that the new Buyer should not have any issues with in the considerable future. There is also a cement driveway that was installed in 2007, instead of the blacktop that came with the original home. The heating and air conditioner was replaced in 2003 and windows redone in 2001. The exterior of the home was hand painted for the highest quality in 2013.
In addition to the functional updates, there have been cosmetic upgrades as well. The kitchen has been remodeled with warm cherry cabinets and quartz countertops. The kitchen is open with an eat-in bar area and separate dining section. A lovely upgrade that I appreciate is the combination convection/microwave oven. Perfect for both cooking and reheating. The living room has a wood burning fireplace with brick mantel, as well as many built-in shelves. Even better, outside of the picture windows are wide-open views of Devil’s Thumb which expand to expose the Flatirons when driving away from the home.
Another cosmetic remodel includes the finished basement. There is a bathroom and separate living space/bedroom area in the basement. This is a large and spacious area that includes an Oregon Rated fireplace. That rating means that it is so contained that the City of Boulder has certified its ability to burn fires, even on no burn days. This fireplace has a moss rock wall.
Outside of the master bedroom in the backyard there is a pergola in the backyard covered in grapevines provide lush vegetation and privacy for the master bedroom. The pergola was an $8,000 upgrade completed by an exceptional contractor who has strong attention to detail. In addition, there is a stamped concrete deck which is a $10,000 upgrade. This home has so much to offer! Please schedule a showing with Leanne Goff to see this property for yourself.
