The Ideal Boulder Neighborhood
1860 Elder Avenue sits in an amazing location. Google employees are looking at a 5-minute commute. It’s located in the neighborhood known as Silver Maple, in Old North Boulder. This part of town feels comfortable and homey. But it's still accessible to downtown Boulder’s hippest spots and best lifestyle attractions (you'll only be a 20-minute walk from Pearl!)
Silver Maple is zoned for sought-after Boulder High School. All of your errands or social activities could be accessed by walking or biking. Ideal Market is a 14-minute walk from your front door. North Boulder Rec Center (with its incredible community garden!) is a lovely 10-minute walk. Living on Elder Avenue, it will be easy to get a nature fix in… the Sanitas Valley Trail is only 1.4 miles from your front door.
Enjoy Flatiron views from Salberg Park... located across the street from your home. The park is the go-to gathering space for the neighborhood. Walking paths and an amazing playground bring the community together.
Wide Open Spaces
1860 Elder Avenue is a property with impressive potential. It’s been under the same ownership for nearly 30 years and has been responsibly maintained throughout the duration.
Are you craving a lifestyle that’s rich with fellowship? The open floor plan will set you up to achieve this goal. The layout of the main floor allows for free movement and intuitive social flow for large group hangs. Vaulted ceilings crown the dining and living rooms. When if you need a little quiet time for yourself, retreat to the lounge in the finished basement. The basement even has its own, private entrance.
And the exterior? Well, get ready to buckle up your overalls. This home sits on a large lot. The 9 raised beds are a gardener’s dream. You’ll be making fresh jams and pies all summer. The strawberry and rhubarb patches are well established and thriving. Perennial flowers will color your year. They bloom every spring all the way through autumn. When you are finished getting your hands dirty, relax on your front deck with some iced tea. Enjoy unobstructed views of Salberg Park.
1860 Elder Avenue gives you plenty of storage space. There is an oversized double garage. And a unique shed that would work well as a potting shed, workshop, or simple storage space. The 252 square foot space has sliding door access to the backyard.
The backyard features a large patio. The sunroom provides the opportunity for indoor-outdoor living. Yep, even through the harsh winters. Passive solar light through skylights (and a floor heater!) make the space comfortable year-round.
10 mature trees shade your home. It’s a lovely blend of hardwoods and pine so you get the best of both worlds. Colors change in the fall… and snow piles dreamily on top of the evergreens every winter. These towering trees are in good health. The shade will help keep your house insulated from the sun during the summer months. Gutter guards shield you from the annoying task of regularly clearing leaves and acorns from your gutters.
