The three-bedroom, four-bath three-story, custom-built home at 335 Dewey Ave., completed in 2017, features a warm modern design, top-floor living space filled with natural light and vaulted ceilings and views of the Flatirons and the horizon east of Boulder for $3.195 million.

The 3,990-square-foot home is one of only 23 homes in the Trailhead community, located near the intersection of Mapleton Avenue and 4th Street, and the first to become available since the initial lots sold. Each home in the Trailhead community features a custom-built home that aligns with the development’s detailed architectural guidelines.

Modern design, warm notes

Designed by noted Boulder architecture firm HMH Architecture, 335 Dewey Ave. has an undeniable modern feel with steel and limestone finishes but, unlike many modern designs, it has warmer touches such as horizontal cedar-plank accent walls sprinkled throughout the space. “It’s comfortably modern,” says John.

With a low-maintenance yard, and a sleek design and top-notch build, the home can provide a lock-and-leave lifestyle, for families who like to travel or maintain additional residences.

At the base of Mount Sanitas trailhead, with special trail access to the Sanitas Valley Trail nearby, and just a few blocks from the Pearl Street Mall, the home offers among the best lifestyles Boulder has to offer.

Reach out to John to set up a one-on-one video showing or to ask any questions. You can also access the 3D virtual tour of the home here.

With over four decades of Boulder County real estate experience, John knows the Boulder market in and out, from new condos to historic homes and everything in between. Among the highest producing agents with RE/MAX of Boulder, Inc., he has deep knowledge and expertise in the following Boulder neighborhoods: Mapleton Hill, University Hill, Newlands, Whittier, and North Boulder.
