A Historic Home on the Slopes of Chautauqua Park

This light and airy three-story historic home in Boulderbuilt in 1908, concurrent with the five-story, Italian-brick Hotel Boulderado, and by the same local architect, William Redding & Son—has housed the Dalai Lama in his own private room on the third floor, as well as several Presidential Candidates, who've addressed supporters on the north lawn from the porch.

The 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom home at 655 12th Street is a classic Foursquare style and has been well-maintained and updated. The home sits on four city lots (that's about 19,885 square feet) in Boulder's picturesque Chautauqua Park.  

Views of both the city and the flatirons add to its cottage-like charm.

The luxurious-yet-cozy historic home also boasts:

  • original leaded glass windows
  • distinctive corner windows
  • rising three stories with a walk-out basement
  • wrap-around porch with Doric columns
  • abundant built-ins
  • antique lighting
  • pool and hot tub
