Known as the Scott Carpenter House, the residence was named for the Boulder native, famed astronaut and second man to ever orbit the earth. The original structure was built at the turn of the 20th century, and Carpenter's grandfather acquired the home in 1914. Carpenter spent his childhood here with his mother and grandparents until he left for naval aviation training during World War II. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, this home basks in residential serenity with the coveted attractions of Chautauqua, including Chautauqua Park, all nearby. Flatirons Elementary School is found down a private path at the end of the street, and majestic views surround this magical property.
