Nestled in the pines overlooking the city and flatirons of Boulder, the residence at 229 Alder Lane is both a design masterpiece and an architectural feat of breathtaking proportions. The result of a top-down renovation in 2014, the alluring mountain residence is inextricably connected to its surrounding terrain, yet built with a contemporary style in mind.
“The residence atop Alder Lane is a statement for refined mountain living,” said LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker, Adam Moore. “The complete renovation of the residence, along with the transformation of the property lot, yields a categorically unique estate in the foothills overlooking the Front Range. No longer does one have to decide between the convenience and design of a city home and the secluded privacy of a hilltop hideaway.”
Luxurious finishes and sophisticated design are the hallmark of the Alder Lane residence. Situated on a sprawling one-acre flat lot only seven minutes from town and less than fifteen minutes to the historic Pearl Street pedestrian mall, homeowner’s have the option to explore the urban core or relax in peaceful solitude amidst the residence’s natural surroundings.
Interior design features of the home include hand-fabricated stair railings and hand-selected stair treads from a Colorado Mill, solid Mahogany interior doors throughout the residence, floor-to-ceiling Colorado stacked stone hearth, a contemporary heat-efficient gas fireplace, a solid Walnut mantle, new LED recessed lighting, extended and refinished Oak flooring, and museum quality walls.
Two focal points take center stage in the main living area: the fireplace and media center anchor the open, central gathering area of the home. The master suite offers direct access to an outdoor sundeck and the spa-inspired soaking tub and dual head shower stall offer maximum luxury and relaxation.
An added feature of the residence is an upstairs birds-eye reading nest featuring Boulder’s only skylight with a view. Hand crafted metal railings overlook the space below and luxurious wool carpet adds softness to the nook.
No mountain living retreat would be complete without a seamless connection from indoor to outdoor living, and the residence provides just that with a pre planted, one-acre garden imagined straight from a botanist’s fairytale. 10,000 hand-planted Daffodils in five unique colors decorate the landscape and deer-resistant flowers and plants including Irises, Sage, and Lavender adorn the landscape of the home.
