General description

  • Main home
We live in the foothills of CO. Between Boulder and Golden. It is a 17 acre lot. The house is updated. We are at about 8000 feet and about 20 min. Away from the closest town. It is very peaceful, gorgeous and like being on vacation everyday. We have a great deck to sit on to enjoy your morning coffee, watch wildlife, or sit under the heater at night for a star gazing night. There are two other people that live on the land. Great people! It is a basic mountain home.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • Many plants
  • 6 dogs
  • Farm animals
We have dogs that need cared for, ensure they are safe from wildlife and loved on!! They are a breed that need people around most of the time. So, we would expect whoever stays here, sticks around the house the majority of the time. They cannot be left alone for more than about 2-3 hours and never overnight. The chickens need cared for daily. The dogs are a rare breed. They are about 25 pounds and are a non-shedding hypoallergic breed who love people! There is also a larger, older labradoodle who is not allergy friendly to some people. The house has some plants that will need watered, and overall just keep the house running/clean. If you cannot keep up with daily dust, floor cleaning, bathrooms cleaning etc. this is not the house for you. :) Because we are in the mountains lots of dust comes in, and we leave a door open for the dogs to go in and out, so it does get dusty and has to be kept up. I do not want to come home to a month's worth of dirt to clean. We would expect the house to be clean when we return, as well as we will have it clean for you before you coming. If needed there a a lot of outside flowers that will need watered detecting on season. Possible snow shovel depending on season. Gather mail from a local post office. Possible field mowing if you want depending on season. Possible take dogs on walks, but it is not a requirement.

This is mountain living paradise. Far enough away, yet close enough to go to town for everything you need. One will need a car as there is no public transportation. We are willing to rent one of our cars if needed for the stay time. We are about 2 hours from any major airport. An uber from the airport to here is about 100.00. There is a small store for last minute items 5 min. Away. A few restaurants in the mountains. But overall it is a very quiet, secluded lifestyle. Lots of friendly neighbors. Depending on the time of the year, there is an one acre pond that can be used, but it is not full year round.

Comfort and Luxury

  • 2 floors
  • 7 rooms of which 4 bedrooms
  • Contemporary
  • Car parking available
  • Art and music
Overall we keep busy during the day with working outside, dog care, taking care of the land. There is a great reservoir near by to kayak at lots of trails. However, the dogs cannot be left alone for a super long day. But there are opportunities. Or one can just sit on the deck, paint, read, watch the hummingbirds and any wildlife that comes by. We have atv's that can be used to drive around the land if one wants. Depending on the season, one can watch the spectacular change of color of the Aspens! The nights do get very cool. Basically you need warm clothes for the nights, evenings, cooler clothes for the day. Because of the altitude, the sun is very intense up here.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Mountain
  • Countryside
One has to plan out trips to town and for "city" life types of activities. Most people up here love just being home, enjoying the quietness, and find things to do for their inner soul. It is not for the ones who want to go, go, go. Rather, rest, rest, rest.
