Available Dates:
From October 1, 2024


Available October 2024! This completely private garden apartment is comprised of the lower two levels of a beautiful split level home in Boulder. With a coveted placement backing onto a neighborhood green park, the lower level private deck provides a view of the Rockies while enjoying the peaceful surroundings of neighbors and dogs enjoying the park. Quiet and private, the back of the apartment offers a sanctuary of green space, while the front opens to a cul-de-sac and suburban-style friendly neighborhood. The private entry through the garage leads into your living room with sliding glass doors to the deck. A reclining loveseat, desk, ample shelves, inset lighting, fireplace, and half-bath grace this carpeted level. Behind louvered doors is a large capacity washer and dryer. Stairs to the lower studio level leads to a large light bright space running the length of the house. One end provides a bedroom: a new queen posturepedic bed with memory foam. The double closet has tons of storage space and built-in shelves. This lower level also contains a kitchenette and cafe table with chairs. The kitchenette includes a double microwave, mini refrigerator, plug-in cooktop burner, and all the necessities of daily life including coffee maker, elec tea kettle, stoneware, utensils, and servingware. Please note that the apartment does NOT have a built-in oven or built-in cooktop stove. A newly renovated full bath is on the lower level with a large corner shower, tile floors, and a marble vanity. The home has a new furnace and house is set house to 73 in winter. There is also a built-in humidifier to help the Colorado dry air. Air conditioning is run throughout hot summer months. I live on the upstairs two floors and support the complete privacy and independence of tenants. I am an author and an executive women's coach working part time on zoom teaching workshops and coaching. I'm friendly and private, and attend quickly to tenant needs while keeping distance for your privacy otherwise. I’ve leased to students and professionals for the last 9 years. The house has usual house noises ~ faint sound of stairs, running water, quiet hum of distant voices though absolutely no discernible conversation. TVs and computers cannot be heard in any part of the house. There is a driveway parking spot for tenant use. Please note that the driveway is not shoveled regularly in winter, so an alternative pull-in parking spot with no long driveway is also available on the culdesac. Cottontail Trail is around the corner for walking or biking, winding through a horse farm to the town of Niwot in one direction, or to Coot Lake and the Boulder reservoir in the other. These bodies of water are less than a mile away and boast bald eagles year 'round as well as osprey, white pelicans, coots, hawks, and all kinds of waterfowl. There are rentable kayaks, canoes, paddleboats at the reservoir as well as a sandy swim beach! Within walking distance is King Soopers grocery story, Human Kind coffee shop, and a dozen delicious restaurants from casual to fine dining, including Protos Pizza, a Japanese sushi restaurant, Aperitivo's, Motherload, and tons of sandwich shops. There is also a nail salon, several hair salons, a Starbucks, and more. The Gunbarrel area of Boulder is a coveted neighborhood due to its gorgeous views, lakes, bike paths, and friendliness. An easy 11-minute drive gets you to the famous downtown Pearl Street Mall, CU Boulder campus, or Naropa University. Serious applicants will receive a 6 minute video of the apartment with full visuals of the layout, natural light, and the furnishings and special features.
