Live Like a Tibetan Monk [Fresh Listings, Get ‘Em Hot]

Each week, we look at the latest listings to hit the Boulder market. We sort out the bad locations. We cull the overpriced. Ultimately, we ask ourselves...would we buy this property?

34 new listings hit the market this week. 10 are worth seeing. 

To schedule a private showing, which includes a discussion of valuation and price trends, call Osman at 303.746.6896.



Single Family Homes


2323 4th Street | $3,975,000 | More Details
A stunning trophy home that sits on a giant lot. Originally built for Naropa’s controversial founder, Chögyam Trungpa, it features Japanese style post and beam construction. For capital preservation, we advise our $2MM+ buyers to focus on homes that have protected view corridors or are directly adjacent to open space (preferably with private access). This one checks the second category but there are other options to evaluate too. Worth a look if you’re a serious buyer. 






3019 Jefferson Street | $1.8MM | More Details
Turn key, buttoned up, great location, solid layout. Skip planning to build. This one is ready for you to move in. Get ready to stroll to Vic’s for coffee or downtown. It's also walking distance to the Hospital, Rec Center, Ideal Market and surrounding retail. 











3962 Promontory Court | $1.1MM | More Details
Spacious 3 bed home in Wonderland Hill neighborhood. Interior is dated but seems to have good bones. Vaulted ceilings for tall buyers and those seeking natural light. Near open space. HOA includes pool and tennis courts!












4899 Kellogg Circle | $789,000 | More Details
Decent size, family friendly layout in Arapahoe Ridge. This is a good alternative for buyers considering North Boulder or Table Mesa. Unlike many Boulder parks, the pocket park in this neighborhood is not overrun with transients. This particular house has nice updates, but might need a few more. The seller has also disclosed some flood damage. Add proper due diligence for flood related repairs and mitigation to your checklist. 








181 Pawnee Drive | $635,000 | More Details
Another solid option if you’re into remodeling. In need of what appears to be mostly cosmetic improvements. House was flooded during 2013’s event, but professionally mitigated. They didn’t re-finish the basement, however. At this price, it’s a cheap entry into Frasier Meadows with a desirable layout (3 bedrooms on the main) and a larger than typical lot for future expansion.






510 Yale Road | $899,000 | More Details
This is a flip. We don’t usually include flips except they’re deeply educational for our buyers. Compare to the before pics (LINK). The buyer paid $500K in November last year. Have they added $400K in value? Mr. Market will decide. Worth a look.






501 Hartford Drive | $599,900 | More Details
Basic ranch with a full basement on a decent size lot in Table Mesa. Drive the street. People are buying these up and updating/expanding because of the location. The best schools and nearby shopping that keeps getting better. Lucky’s anyone?











660 Yale Road | $675,000 | More Details
It's unfortunate that there are no interior photos of what is described as a gorgeous remodel. You'll have to see it yourself to believe. Value is in Table Mesa location. Good single-story family layout. Walk to breakfast at Walnut Cafe!








Attached Dwellings




3712 Ridgeway Street | $899,000 | More Details
Technically, it’s a duplex but don’t let that stop you. It’s not your father’s duplex. The primary draw of Northfield is modern, efficient construction in a pleasant location. Built in 2010. Dollar for dollar, you can’t build for this price. If you’re shopping Northfield, you want a unit that has the decks overlooking open space or the playing fields. This one checks that box. The one drawback to Northfield is that it’s a newer location without many retail amenities nearby (sorry E, it’s true!). 






575 Manhattan Drive 575-205 | $309,900 | More Details
Affordable price for a 2 bedroom in Boulder. Right across the street from grocery and Meadows shopping center, as well as close proximity to Manhattan Middle School. Vaulted ceilings. Worth a look.
