Price: $269,000

Beds: 2

Bath: 2

Square Feet: 966

Located right in the heart of Boulder, this condo has everything a college age kiddo or young professional needs. It is close to Pearl Street, within walking distance of great restaurants and shopping, and right next to the Boulder Creek Path. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms so it is a great layout for someone who would like to take on a roommate.

The HOA in this complex offers membership to the on-site gym, pool, raquetball and tennis courts. This condo also comes with one reserved parking spot in the underground garage. The only drawback of this place is that it is on the first floor. Some buyers shy away from a first floor condo with upstairs neighbors.

The Price is Right on this South Boulder Beauty

1519 Bradley Drive, Boulder, CO 80305

013509887_320x240

Price: $409,900

Beds: 4

Bath: 3

Square Feet: 2520

This condo boasts a lot of living space for the price and has an air of peace and tranquility. It is tucked back in a little cul-de-sac in South Boulder. The neighborhood is super convenient with a grocery store, fantastic schools, and hiking and biking just steps away. There are plenty of windows throughout this place so there is a lot of natural light. The patio is south facing so the back of this place gets a lot of sunshine throughout the day.

The home has been well maintained, the floors are beautiful, and there is plenty of space for a family but the new owners will likely want to do a bit of updating. Also, all the furnishings in this home are negotiable.

Sophisticated Living for the Urban Explorer

1360 Walnut Street 404, Boulder, CO 80302

013446770_320x240

Price: $550,000

Beds: 1

Bath: 1

Square Feet: 877

This downtown loft has big city charm and sophistication. The one bed, one bath condo is right in the mix of it all. It is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Pearl Street and all the downtown festivities- and the Farmer’s Market is really close.

The condo itself oozes style. The chef’s kitchen opens into the ultra-modern loft. The clean lines, cool light fixtures, and very cool furniture (much of which is negotiable in the purchase) give this place a hip feel. One some more practical notes, this place comes with 2 parking spaces, 2 extra storage units, and the building is very secure- you cannot gain street access without the magnetized keys to let you into the complex.

There are two real drawbacks to this place. The first is that a one bed, one bath won’t work for most people. The second is that while there is a lot of storage, it is all down in the garage. The condo itself has limited closet and kitchen storage space.

Get The Most Bang For Your Buck in Gunbarrel

5002 Buckingham Rd, Gunbarrel, CO 80301

Price: $230,000

Beds: 3

Bath: 2

Square Feet: 1250

Here is another great example of how much value one can find just outside of Boulder proper. This home in Gunbarrel (which is really part of Boulder) will be plenty comfortable for home owners that need room for more than 2. Due to its location in Gunbarrel it offers a quaint, calming atmosphere, that can be challenging to find in the city of Boulder. It has a modern and open kitchen/living area and a unique window design that brings a lot of natural light into the south facing front of the home.

It also comes with a well protected underground parking area with room for extra storage which some of the other home owners in the are currently using as workshops. Off of the master bedroom there is a south facing balcony with room for seating that over looks the neighborhood and is made extra cozy by the surrounding mature trees and landscaping. If you’re one who enjoys peace, quite and natural light in and out of your home – this is a place you ought to see.

A Gunbarrel Greens Oasis!

6882 Harvest Road, Boulder, CO 80301

013381747_320x240

Price: $526,000

Beds: 3

Bath: 4

Square Feet: 3478

This home is your own personal sanctuary with flowers, beautiful landscaping, a large deck, and a hot tub for entertaining. There is an enclosed porch that is perfect for sipping iced tea and reading a book on a warm summer day.

The master suite, kitchen, and living areas are all on the main floor making it easy to get around. There is also a mother-in-law basement suite that is perfect for guests wanting privacy or possible rental potential.

Gunbarrel Greens is a quiet neighborhood right outside Boulder. There are the Twin Lakes as well as trails for hiking and biking.  Even though it’s just five minutes from Boulder, the drive through green pastures and wide open spaces gives Gunbarrel a country feel.

So what’s the rub? That beautiful backyard will take a green thumb to keep it pristine. There may be some more maintenance with this one in landscaping.

Need a Cozy, Private Place for Guests?

3325 Folsom Street, Boulder, CO 80026

013329165_320x240Price: $599,000

Beds: 4

Bath: 3

Square Feet: 1782

This central Boulder home has been beautifully remodeled with some very cool features. There are refinished wood floors, skylights and stainless in the kitchen, new interior paint and french doors out to the enormous back yard. Also, don’t forget this home comes with a separate 430 sq ft guest house which has also been tastefully finished. If you need a cozy, private place for guests or a college age kiddo, this home may really fit the bill.

Another great thing is the Folsom and Iris location. This home is in a charming older neighborhood, central to everything you could possibly want in Boulder, and there is no HOA here.

So what’s the rub? While the living spaces are beautifully redone and very sophisticated, the bedrooms themselves and the living room are a bit on the small side.

This Victorian Cottage is Not Short on Charm!

501 South Roosevelt Avenue, Lafayette, CO 80026

013419832_320x240

Price: $298,500

Beds: 3

Bath: 1

Square Feet: 1238

This cottage in Old Town Lafayette will make you feel like a kid again! If you love the feeling of a farmhouse cottage, this is for you! You can explore the nooks and crannies and feel like you’re transported back in time. The master bedroom is a converted attic with plenty of storage and tons of natural light.

The kitchen is open to the living room so the layout is inviting. There is also some exposed brick, giving it a modern feel in a traditional home. The large yard is waiting for someone to get their hands dirty in the garden. There are also community gardens right down the street.

So what’s the rub? The charm comes with time! The home was built in 1910, so she has some years on her. With homes this old, it is always smart to delve deep and make sure the electrical and plumbing systems are up to snuff.

Just Need a Little Peace and Quiet in Your Life? This Soothing Abode May Do the Trick.

2954 Kalmia Avenue 37, Boulder, 80301

013391138_320x240

Price: $390,000

Beds: 3

Bath: 2

Square Feet: 1734

This light and bright townhome is tucked away in one of the most peaceful little nooks in Boulder. You won’t be bothered by traffic sounds or college keggers here! In this home, skylights abound. The living areas, bedrooms and even the bathrooms are sun soaked. There is an open floor plan on the main floor that is perfect for entertaining. Also, all the bedrooms are on                           different floors so even with roommates, everyone would have                                         privacy.

This home is truly low maintenance living. There is no yard to take care of and the monthly HOA includes an outdoor pool, hot tub and tennis courts.

So what’s the rub? This home will not work well for people that can’t do a lot of stairs. There is one bedroom on the main floor but the other two are in the basement and upstairs, respectively.

Hip, European Style Living in Holiday

4661 17th Street, Boulder, 80304

013388557_320x240

Price: $455,000

Beds: 2

Bath: 3

Square Feet: 1612

This beautiful Holiday home has everything you need for hip, urban living. This abode features a chef’s kitchen, soaring vaulted ceilings, 2 bedrooms with their own separate attached bathrooms, and on top of it all, it boasts net-zero energy. They have used beautiful bamboo flooring, Trex decking, and recycled pop bottle carpeting to create a home that is not only beautiful but has a small environmental footprint as well.

The Holiday neighborhood in North Boulder has a ton to offer its residents. People who live here can walk easily to neighborhood shops, restaurants and cafes. There are great hiking, walking, and biking trails and there is open space nearby. Also, there seems to be a bit less hustle and bustle up there. With less through traffic than other parts of town, the pace seems a bit slower.

So what’s the rub? This home only has two bedrooms. While the bedrooms that are there are spacious and have their own bathrooms, many buyers need three bedrooms. But don’t despair- there is an unfinished basement with a nice window that would be easy to convert to a third bedroom.

More Soothing and Serene than a Zen Garden

2232 Barn Swallow Drive, Longmont, CO 80504

013355193_320x240

Price: $464,900

Beds: 4

Bath: 4

Square Feet: 3020

The owners of this Longmont lovely have left no details to chance. From the warm and inviting colors, to the beautifully designed, unique kitchen, to the private guest suite downstairs- this home shines.

This home is in the fantastic Creekside neighborhood in the                                     Southeast corner of Longmont. It is just a hop, skip and a jump                                       away from Diagonal Highway and from Longmont conveniences.  If you have been considering moving outside of Boulder, this home truly shows the value you can get in some of our surrounding towns and cities.

So what’s the rub? The only reason I can think of that most people wouldn’t just fall head over heels for this home is that it is in Longmont, not Boulder. If you don’t mind the drive, this is a must see!

Step Back to 1914 with this Historic Gem

1221 3rd Ave, Longmont, CO 8050

416263353_320x240

Price: $337,000

Beds: 3

Bath: 2

Square Feet: 2015

Past and present merge in this all brick ranch in charming Old Town Longmont. This home offers a glimpse into the past with its enclosed front sunroom and porch (perfect for ice tea sipping on a hot summer day), original wood work and wood floors, and claw footed tub in the bathroom. But not everything in the home is a study in history. There is a newer furnace, hot water heater, roof, and sewer. Truly the best of both worlds.

So what’s the rub? The only thing that is less than desirable about this home is the third bedroom situation. It is downstairs in the basement and has an adjoining bathroom that is very small. If you don’t need the third bedroom for much then this home works great. If you do need a fully functional third bedroom, then this one may not be for you.

Kiss Your Landlord Goodbye and Own for Less than Renting

820 Kimbark Street A, Longmont, CO 80501

013347289_320x240

Price: $159,000

Beds: 2

Bath: 2

Square Feet: 1282

This Victorian style condo has some cool modern finishes and a great location. The future owners can walk to downtown Longmont and through some beautiful, old historic neighborhoods, sip hot chocolate by their gas fireplace in the living room, or enjoy a brew and the views on their rooftop patio. Also, with 3.5% down with an FHA loan, the payments on this pad are around $1200/month. If you take into account that the second bedroom is rent-able, then the monthly expenditures on this bad boy are pretty darn low.

So what’s the rub? There are currently tenants in the home. It will need some love (mostly new carpet and new paint) so the future owners will need to be ready to roll their sleeves up for some cleaning and maintenance.

This North Boulder lovely is unique and eccentric. This one has 3 decks, a chef’s kitchen, amazing natural light, and is in a super cool co-housing community right down from Lucky’s market. It also has several fireplaces and mountain views off of the decks.

So what’s the rub? The second and third bedrooms in this home are pretty small. Also, if you are aren’t comfortable being close to your neighbors, a co-housing community may not be for you.

Farm House Charm on One Acre of Potential

9268 Baseline Rd

013316589_320x240

Price: $445,000

Beds: 3

Baths: 2

Square Feet: 1979

Step back in time to your Boulder County farm house. This abode, updated to have a very grand and classic feel (think Great Gatsby), has all the convenience of city living but comes on 1 acre of potential- imagine horses, chickens, and a garden. There are several big, beautiful fireplaces and yummy dark, wood floors.

So what’s the rub? This home is close to Baseline Road so traffic noise may be an issue.

Your Private Boulder Eagle’s Nest

013212462_320x240

Price: $255,000

Beds: 1

Baths: 1

Square Feet: 786

If you are looking for your own private refuge, perched high above the skyline of Boulder, look no further. This top floor condo has Flatirons views, lets in warm afternoon sunshine, and is super spacious for a one bedroom. It overlooks Goose Creek Pond and the softball fields on Mapleton. Also, the finishes leave nothing to be desired. There is stainless in the kitchen, high end touches in the bathroom, and a really nice washer and dryer that are included.

So what’s the rub? This one is a one bed/one bath and there isn’t a ton of storage. Also, whoever moves here should be ready to climb some stairs- there are 2 flights to get up to the top.

This Income Property is a Cinch!

1125 Sir Galahad Drive

 416073329_240x180Price: $249,900

Units: 4

Beds: 8

Baths: 4

Square Feet: 3472

This new listing is hot off the press. There are 4 units that rent for around $750 each. At this price, the cap rate is respectable and it cash flows at $800 per month. Interested investors should move quickly.

So what’s the rub? Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to go see this one this week before we wanted to put it in the newsletter. I would guess that this investor gem needs a bit of work judging from the pictures and the listing notes.

Shanahan Ridge + Views = Dream Home

 013280484_320x240

Price: $319,500

Beds: 2

Baths: 2

Square Feet: 1064

This oh-so-cool condo is not going to last long. There are views from every window, designated open space and trails right across the street and the decor is dreamy. The upgraded kitchen and bathrooms, the amazing windows and skylights, and the grey interior paint all combine to make this condo a refreshing refuge.

So what’s the rub? There is not a whole lot of room for multiple people here. This home is a one bed with a loft/study/guest bed area. If you need two full bedrooms, this one won’t work.
