BLDRfly’s fly listing of the week presents a sleek, large home on a big lot in one of Boulder’s most desirable, walkable neighborhoods, Newlands.

Listed by Compass agent Kristin Kalush, the four-bedroom, 3.25-bath home at 715 Forest Ave. features three stories of 4,160 above-ground-square-feet for $2.695 million. Many similar-sized homes in the neighborhood feature basements, but this one’s three floors has high ceilings, an open layout, many windows and tons of natural light.

The cottage-style home’s bright, open layout and fine furnishings lends it a Hamptons, Santa Monica sensibility. And its large, 8,000-square-foot lot offers plenty of room to roam, particularly in the large front yard.

The cozy ground-floor office shares a double-sided fireplace with the living room. Demand for nice at-home office space, of course, has jumped since the pandemic has locked everyone at home.

World-class Walkability

Nestled in the heart of Newlands, the home offers some of the best walkability in Boulder. To shop, eat, drop the kids off at school, go to work downtown, hike the foothills, requires a walk of just a few blocks in any direction.

North Boulder Park, which features acres of green fields with stunning views of Mount Sanitas and one of Boulder’s best parks period, stands just a few blocks to the south. Speaking of Mount Sanitas, a trailhead to its network of trails is just four blocks to the west.

For families with young children, Foothills Elementary School is just a few blocks to the north. In addition, Ideal Market, which features great espresso and coffee from Beleza Coffee Bar, New Mexican culinary delights from Santo, ice cream from Sweet Cow, a Whole Foods market and many other amenities, is just a few blocks away.

And to get to the Pearl Street Mall requires just short 20-minute walk.
