Find a New Life in the Newlands
In the shadow of Mount Sanitas, the Newlands neighborhood is one of the most coveted areas of Boulder. Newlands was originally owned by the apple-growing farmer Newland.
Many apple trees still bloom and bear fruit each year. Neighborhood amenities include North Boulder Park, a baseball diamond, picnic areas, and playgrounds. Pearl Street is just down the hill, about a 20-minute walk away.
The Ideal Market and North Boulder Rec Center are even closer. The neighborhood has direct access to Sanita’s Goat Trail, which will take you to the top of the peak, or connect you to the Red Rocks trail system that wanders dreamily through the foothills.
Despite the stacks of neighborhood perks, Forest Avenue is a quiet, low-traffic street. It's a lovely gateway to both city and wilderness.
Newlands is zoned for Foothills Elementary (7 min walk!), Casey Middle, and Boulder High.
1023 Forest Ave Is A Catalyst for Green Living and Creativity
Hey, all you buyers with a passion for the environment! Buying this home is a great way to offset your carbon footprint. The sellers have “super greened” this home. All hot water is solar-powered, and the home has NetZero electricity. The home balances its energy needs with energy produced from renewable, zero-emission sources. 1023 Forest Ave is a working example of the future of renewable energy.
The floorplan of this sprawling 3,649 square foot home is clean, modern, and open. An airiness prevails throughout the interior, made possible by features like french doors, light-tone maple floors, a metal rail staircase, skylights, and 9-foot ceilings.
Your privacy-fenced backyard is professionally landscaped with Zen principles in mind. The front yard has mastered the goals of the popular “no lawns” movement. Grass has been replaced by lush pollinator plants and mature trees. The backyard includes a water feature surrounded by an Asian-inspired garden and a raised vegetable garden.
A private, detached studio lives amidst the garden. The quiet privacy of this studio is a natural catalyst for creativity. Utilize this space as a home office, artist studio, or musician practice space. Maybe even a recording studio! The opportunities are endless. The studio is fully heated, cooled, and insulated, with easy alley access for friends or clients.
Despite its proximity to towering Mount Sanitas, this home sits on a level lot that is easy to maintain. A mix of evergreen and deciduous trees shade the home. Enjoy views from your second-floor windows.
