Family-friendly Martin Acres Ranch House

Our home dates from 1956 in the historic and community-minded Martin Acres neighbourhood, which is a welcoming mix of young families, academics, and graduate students, etc.

Location: It is situated within walking distance of NIST (15 min to heart of campus), and CU (25 min to the heart of campus). It is also near the NCAR shuttle (20 min walk) up the hill to NCAR. There is nearby King Soopers and Luckys (20 min walk) for grocery, as well as restaurants etc. Practically the entire city is accessible by bike path from our house. Hiking into the flatirons is walking distance, just behind the NIST campus. A wonderful neighbourhood park with creek and playground is just a 15 minutes walk. You can tackle the famous Flagstaff climb by bicycle just ten minutes ride away. The neighbourhood school is Creekside, which has lots of international academic families coming through and is a great school.

Rooms: The houses in Martin Acres are mostly on a ranch-style plan, and ours has been extended a bit into the backyard. We have 3 regular bedrooms (one a child's room with loft bed, one with double bed, one with king bed), kitchen, dining and living area in the classic ranch pattern, as well as a converted garage "den" off the living room, and a large "romper room" off the back that gets lots of light and is carpeted and set up for kids, but also has an extra double bed. There are two bathrooms, one with bath/shower and one with shower. There's a small laundry room and a "bike garage." We have a lovely front deck for outdoor meals hemmed in by trees in summer and fall, as well as a wild backyard with an old pagoda. There is no driveway or garage, but on-street parking is never a problem. There are lots of ways to rearrange the beds etc. to suit.

Special features: We have an incredible Lego collection, are baby-proofed with many gates, many kids toys, yoga balls, giant bean bag etc., and we have a Zwift setup (most can be left or removed). Crib, playpen, changing table, high chair, bike trailers available. Shade trees, fruit trees, garden boxes and herb garden, hammock. Practical family-friendly (as opposed to fancy) furniture. Lots of kitchen appliances. Whole house fan keeps you plenty cool in summer (run at night to bring in cool air; a Colorado-specific approach to cooling). Radon mitigation. Wifi. No TV/Cable.
