Located in the highly-desirable Flatirons neighborhood, preeminent architect Charles Haertling's 2,550-square-foot landmarked home is available for the first time. This four-bedroom, three-bath home is a pristine example of Haertling's vision.
Charles Haertling was the architect of Boulder's most distinctive homes and has been celebrated by national and international organizations and publications, including Life Magazine and Dwell. His work combines elements of modernism and organic architecture and draws inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff. Haertling's homes are considered an essential part of America's rich architectural history.
You are welcomed inside the home through a winding staircase that delivers you to the main living area. Here, you will experience a spacious living room, an integrated dining area, and an open kitchen, making it the perfect place for entertaining or peaceful relaxation while enjoying the wood-burning fireplace.
Vaulted beamed ceilings, clerestory windows, and walls of glazed windows and doors extend out to three well-integrated porches that embrace indoor/outdoor living. From the inside and porch vantage points, there are views to the private, lush multi-level back and front gardens.
The main floor has a bedroom with a full bath and a private porch. Nestled within the house's crest, the sanctuary-like loft bedroom offers treetop views and an attached bathroom. Along with a bonus room or office and a downstairs family room, the two ground-floor bedrooms offer private access to the gardens and easy access to a full bathroom. The home has a high-efficiency furnace (with air conditioning), a high-end stacked washer and dryer, and a large carport with room for two vehicles.
Haertling designed the home in 1968 for renowned weaver Helen Wilson and her husband, University of Colorado professor Richard Wilson. In 1973, the Haertling family purchased the home from the Wilsons and have lived there ever since.
This one-of-a-kind home has immediate access to abundant trailheads, Flagstaff Mountain, Chautauqua Park and Chautauqua Auditorium, as well as the University of Colorado campus, Downtown Boulder, and the Pearl Street Mall, which features restaurants, unique coffee shops, locally-owned retail shopping, and much more.
