The Williams Team

Listed by Warren and Yvonne Williams of Re/Max Alliance, the two-story home features a stone walkway with state-of-the-art landscaping, two outdoor deck spaces and a built-in botanical retreat off of its master bedroom.

Built to bring the outdoors in (the Flatirons rise just to the West), the home features a large rear deck and a private deck with mountain views off of the master bedroom’s botanical retreat.

The home’s expansive windows and five skylights flood its rooms with light — like its kitchen and the renovated retreat — and the show-home yard features a sprawling garden, plenty of space, and even raised garden beds to test your green thumb.

The home’s botanical retreat, built later as an add-on to the master suite, also features its own private deck.

Aside from its lush landscaping and location, the home boasts a coveted physical asset (especially in these work-from-home Covid times) in its tiled, multipurpose fifth bedroom, which has its own private entrance.

With its built-in wooden shelves, this room could function as a home office, allowing in-person clients to enter through the dedicated entrance, a mother-in-law suite, or serve as a rental.

Location + education

The home’s current owners chose it for its proximity to some of Boulder’s best schools. The community has Bear Creek Elementary an easy walk away — Summit Hill Middle School and the highly-rated Fairview High School also stand close by.

“This is definitely a desirable location to give your kids a leg up in education,” Yvonne Williams tells BLDRfly.

With an incredible view of the Flatirons right from its tree-lined street, this bright Boulder getaway also sits just a block away from Bear Creek park and a five-minute drive from the rec center, Harlow Platts Community Park and Playground, and Viele Lake.

It’s also right in the middle of trails galore with NCAR Table Mesa Trail to Boulder Creek, Bear Canyon Trail and Shanahan Ridge Trailhead (just to name a few.)

South Boulder comes with its own charm; you have the Table Mesa Shopping Center which has everything from great restaurants to adventure store hotspot Neptune Mountaineering.

The home’s main entrance, and its large rear deck.
