BLDRfly’s fly listing of the week presents a seven-bedroom, seven-bath, 10,000-square-foot mountain home on a 1.92-acre lot in Pine Brook Hills just ten minutes west of Broadway, listed for $2.575 million at 2692 Linden Drive.

Listed by Resident Realty Colorado agent Abraham Rye-Kirov, the massive home has city and valley views from its perch up Linden Drive. Featuring stone, reclaimed oak and exposed timber, the estate benefits from the four-acre Pine Brook reservoir and has miles of nearby trails.

Built in 1966, the home features high ceilings, large windows, hardwood floors, and five gas fireplaces, and a separate guest house with its own entrance, kitchen, bathrooms and garage.

An all-glass, south-facing sunroom with stone flooring off the kitchen offers the perfect spot to sip some java and take in the views, Abraham says. Its wood-burning stove makes it a cozy evening spot, too.

The home has over 3,000 square feet of private decking and patio space, including four decks and a huge stone patio, and a private library with handmade built-in cabinets.

Custom finishes include 100-year-old reclaimed Pennsylvania Amish barn oak wood floors and the master bathroom has radiant-floor heating, a five-piece bathroom with steam shower and a private multi-level deck accessed through a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass facade.

Located in the Boulder foothills north of town, with just a seven-minute drive to Fourmile Canyon Creek, Wonderland Lake and Wonderland Hills, and Sunshine Canyon, the home serves as a private retreat while providing easy access to the best Boulder has to offer.

“That’s what’s cool about this neighborhood in general,” says Abraham. “It feels spacious and private but still have all your delivery services, school, and can be downtown in 10 minutes.”

Residents can enjoy proximity to North Boulder shopping such as Lucky’s and Whole Foods as well as the Boulder Valley School District, with the school bus stopping right in front of the house.

Also, since the county maintains the neighborhood’s roads, they get plowed in the winter and stay well kept.

With multiple wings and many flex rooms, including game rooms, TV rooms and work spaces, the house has tons of space to easily separate. The backyard features a garden and play area, and … a putting green!

“I call it the pandemic house,” laughs Abraham. “Everyone can have their own space. They don’t even have to see each other unless you’re coming together to eat.”

Remodeled with an investment of over $3.5 million in 2005, the home’s indoor comforts include 10 kilowatt solar panels, solar water heaters, and a four-car garage, as well as a natural gas backup generator for emergencies.
