Home should be a special place. With quiet private places to rest and recharge. Architectural detail that inspires. Quality features that invite entertaining. Plenty of room for toys. And if you can find it, a view that will quiet the soul. Welcome to 281 Ponderosa Drive, located just east of Boulder on a view 3-1/2-acre site on the road up toward Louisville. The views are straight into the mountains and overlooking the city of Boulder. As you walk to the home, you pass through a wonderful, quiet courtyard - entirely private from the outside world. Shade trees and shrubbery, rocks and groundcover leave a feeling of sitting in the forest. Through the front door, you enter on the living area with a warm fireplace, and wide-open views of the Rocky Mountains, Flatirons, foothills, reservoir and city of Boulder. The raised deck is spacious enough to entertain. The living room area is adjacent to the dining and kitchen areas, where all the floors are hardwood. Architectural features separate the spaces. In the kitchen, note the Viking Range/oven and hood, subzero refrigerator and again, the views. Off the kitchen and courtyard, you'll find the first of two master bedroom suites. You'll enter on a study with its own private deck, sleeping room, master bathroom and walk-in closet. On the opposite side of the main level, you'll find the second master bedroom, again with its own study, private garden deck, luxury bathroom with spacious soaking tub, separate shower, a bidet and vanity, and a sleeping room and walk-in closet. Downstairs, two additional bedrooms, another full bathroom, and a family or rec room. Adjacent to that, a room to name as you'd like. This finished space would make a great fitness gym, workshop or just a massive amount of storage. At the end of the room, feel free to do as much canning as you'd like. You have plenty of storage. The land is a bit more than 3-1/5 acres of mostly pasture, a perfect place for the barn. Three stalls, storage and a tack room are available for keeping animals and supplies. A quiet courtyard for a meditative moment or great novel, exposed architectural elements, quality built in everywhere, room for all of your equipment and vehicles, and views that will wake up and inspire the artist in you. This is home. Call me. I'll open the door.
