This impeccable Newlands residence is rich with character, seamlessly melding old and new, celebrating its historic and unique identity and making way for a warm and welcoming home. Be greeted by a beautifully restored original stone façade which reveals the ultra high-end, custom renovated home within. Located in one of Boulder’s most coveted neighborhoods, this home’s gut-renovation was meticulously planned and reimagined by the seller — who purchased it from the family who built it in 1940 — after spending years learning the space and contemplating the views and changing sunlight of the seasons. The result is a supremely thoughtful remodel that retains the signature Colorado red sandstone exterior and outdoorsy, mountain-views vibe. Clean and modern, luxe yet never showy, the house is perfectly suited to contemporary living with a timeless quality that will endure for decades to come.
Step inside from the covered front porch to discover a stunning open layout featuring 5-inch wide-plank white oak floors and soaring vaulted ceilings. Abundant new windows add to the bright and airy ambiance while capturing remarkable views of the Flatirons and Mt. Sanitas to the south and west. Relax and entertain in the sunny living and dining areas. Ahead, the impeccable kitchen dazzles with an Italian Statuario Marble waterfall island and breakfast bar illuminated by designer pendant lighting. Natural walnut storage nooks add warmth and intrigue to sleek, snow-white cabinetry, and the fleet of upscale appliances includes a SubZero built-in refrigerator with custom fronts and hardware as well as a Wolf professional dual-fuel range topped by a professional Zephyr hood with wall-mounted remote. A marble bar and wine refrigerator keep libations close at hand.

A second bedroom and another lovely bathroom with a large tub/shower complete the level. Home automation and remote controlled window treatments add convenience.

The home's expansive 6,247-square-foot lot includes professional landscaping designed by Marpa. Flood mitigation measures were incorporated as part of the home's renovation, and a feasibility study shows the ability to add a 500-square-foot ADU.
