What makes this property so unique?
A spectacular multi-generational masterpiece property and a true Colorado landmark in the heart of Boulder, this home was originally built in 1882 and was the mayor’s home at the time. After years of being used as a private residence, this historic estate was converted to an office for a law firm. Most recently, the current owner completely renovated the property and returned it to its original state as a single residence. Built in 1882 and meticulously restored 139 years later, this manor is a perfect marriage of historic charm and modern luxury.
With an attached two-bedroom apartment accessible via the main floor from a private elevator, it offers a chance for supplemental income. The historic estate also offers majestic views of the Flatirons and the growing city surrounding.
While this home has been updated to feature five-bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, a gourmet eat-in kitchen and formal dining room, wide windows, cozy fireplaces, lush gardens, a fully fenced exterior and a brick patio, it still retains the classic charm of a historical downtown Boulder home. It is located just minutes from historic Pearl Street, as well as being nestled at the base of the Rockies, being ideal for every kind of lifestyle.
What inspired the design of the interiors?
The inspiration for the interior stemmed from the owner’s commitment to recovering the authenticity of the original design, the interior design was replicated from her deep dive into historic photos, news articles, and finding odds and ends of material from Boulder’s Carnegie Museum. While honoring the past, she has captured the present by using modern techniques and building materials throughout.
What’s your favorite room in the home?
My favorite room in the home is the gourmet kitchen. No detail was spared—it is truly a chef’s kitchen. It opens to the formal dining room creating an ideal environment for entertaining.
