Amazingly beautiful Whittier neighborhood area w/ all the delight of a turn of the century home, exposed brick, gorgeous trim & finish, w/ modern kitchen & master suite & bath that you’d expect. Totally remodeled in ’04, new roof in ’05, completely new sewer ’09, & meticulously maintained. New highly efficient thermal double pane windows in ’09, pre-inspected, buyer’s home warranty, & a rare find in this coveted neighborhood priced below market value. Walk to everything. You will love this one!
And well, a little more to think about:
The best of both worlds, the charm and character of
an older property with all of the amenities of a modern newly updated home.
In 2004 remodeled kitchen w corian counters and stainless appliances & master luxury
bath w radiant heat floor. New roof in 2005, and this in 2009 the interior has been
repainted and all of the windows have been replaced with new double
paned thermal energy efficient windows. The home also got a brand new sewer line from house to street in 2009, and in 2012 the water heater was replaced with a Rinnai tankless heater to save you time, money and so you’ll never run out of water.
Other great features include
beautiful hardwood floors, gas fireplace, exposed brick inside, brand new Storage shed, Bronzed door hardware, Kitchen Aid dishwasher (full stainless inside and out), Kitchen Aid Convection stove / oven, oversized laundry room (measures about 10?x10?), beautiful oak floors throughout the home except for the custom tile in the master luxury bath, updated electrical including new main service panel so you have plenty of power for all of your modern electronics, (too many of the older Boulder homes are missing this feature).
Besides all that, it’s back to the old adage: Location, Location, Location. Your new home is two short blocks to the Whittier International School, a short walk to the brand new completely rebuilt Casey Middle School, about a 5 minute walk to Pearl Street downtown, and about five blocks to Whole Foods.
What more could you ask for in a new Boulder home?
A funny thing about many Boulder neighborhoods is that over time, different ideas develop about what the boundaries are for the area we think we know.
If you’re interested in Boulder real estate and want to know more about different neighborhoods, I’m offering this as a resource, and I’ve compiled information from a variety of different sources.
Here’s a short video tour of my thoughts on the Whittier neighborhood below. There’s also a useful map and additional information here below the map!
I’ve lived in many different parts of Boulder. The Whittier neighborhood is one of them. When you drive around the downtown area many people think only of the vicinity of Boulder near Whittier Elementary as the true Whittier neighborhood.
The City of Boulder data says that the Whittier neighborhood encompasses the residential sections of Boulder between Bluff Street to the North, 28th Street to the East, Canyon Boulevard to the South, and Broadway to the West.
That’s a pretty large area and most of us consider those parts of downtown something other than ‘Whittier’. With all the changes and developments in the central Boulder area, it’s probably more useful to talk about Whittier as the eastern part of central Boulder from about 18th or 19th streets eastward over to 28th Street as a maximum eastern boundary.
One of the cool things about the Whittier neighborhood is that it’s home to Whittier Elementary School, which is the oldest continuing operating school in the state. It’s also an International Baccalaureate school.
I have a friend that grew up in Boulder and went to Whittier Elementary. I’m pretty sure one or both of his parents went there. I know that his kids went to school at Whittier Elementary, and even though he and parts of his family have lived in other parts of the country, he has lived in the Whittier neighborhood for the last decade or two… in the home that his grandparents owned since he was a child. Now that’s some local history and connection.
Besides having friends in the Whittier area, I’ve helped both buyers and sellers in this neighborhood over the years. If you think you might need some help with real estate in Whittier, why not call or email me soon so we can talk about what you’re planning?

Here’s a rare opportunity to own a wonderfully rebuilt and updated home in the Whittier Neighborhood in Downtown Boulder!
So if you’re looking for an outstanding house in central Boulder, this is absolutely a must see.
The hardwood floors on the main level are absolutely gorgeous, and have just been professionally refinished. You need to visit this home to appreciate how perfectly special this home is for you.
This beautiful home was completely rebuilt about 10 years ago, with the help of an outstanding local architect, and local contractors.
Special attention was given to make the home efficient, and comfortable, with very livable space.
What’s particularly unique and desirable about this home is that it essentially has no wasted space. There really aren’t any hallways, and each room, especially on the main level, are well-connected and flow easily from one room to another, which epitomizes the often over-used term: “open floorplan”. In this case, this home is a perfect example of well-used space, design and architecture to bring you a home that works just like you like to live.
In contrast to many other downtown, Whittier neighborhood homes, this home has a fantastic corner lot with an inviting and friendly back yard.
The modern floor plan let’s you entertain in the kitchen and dining area, with a friendly bar-top counter, and wonderful flow from the kitchen into the back yard.
The kitchen is open, efficient, and spacious. Beautiful cabinetry, great appliances, an adjacent laundry room / mud room with storage, deep sink and additional cabinets continue the flow and thoughtfulness built into this great home.
For those of you who are sentimental, or historically inclined, the home has been in the same family for generations.
The current owner purchased the home from his grandparents, and several generations of the family have lived in the home and attended the local schools, including the Whittier International Elementary School just down the street.
This home has been lovingly maintained, and the current owner actually moved out of the home for almost an entire year, to give the architects, contractors, and workers the proper time to do a job which met his perfectionist style and demands from his vendors.
This neighborhood, and the general central Boulder area has rarely seen a home with the perfect combination of modern floor plan, fantastic fit and finish, a highly professional rebuild, and an excellent price.
Consider taking the time to get inside and look at this home in person.
This home, and its fit and finish, and layout will impress you, and as I said in the video, the “proof is in the pudding” as they say, so make an appointment to get inside and see this home live and in color!
When you visit, take your time and explore. You’ll find a beautiful 4th bedroom which is currently used as a home office where you can work with an excellent view of the tree-lined sidewalks along Pine Street.
Upstairs, you’ll find a third bedroom, (the 2nd bedroom and 2nd full bath are on the main floor), and most importantly, you’ll eventually tour the wonderfully spacious master bedroom suite. The tasteful and well-appointed five-piece master bath has custom tile, dual sinks which are separated by convenient section of the counter which is lowered for those who like to have a seating area for ‘getting ready’ … oh, and did I mention the custom shower with gorgeous tile and dual shower heads?! And, I know you won’t miss the over-sized jetted soaking tub, with custom tile surround.
Oh yeah, and don’t miss the huge walk-in closet, and handy deck off of the south end of the master suite. Coffee and breakfast on this deck with broad verdant views in the summer, and foothills views in the winter make an outstanding combination!
Walk on out on the deck, see it for yourself. Then remember to notice the extra windows, both for light and ventilation. Remember, Boulder often has wonderfully cool evenings, even in the summer, so with excellent flow-through ventilation, and the high-end ceiling fan, you have the perfect combination.
In case that isn’t enough, the home does have an evaporative cooling system… for those two weeks or so when some folks feel like they need to utilize some artificial cooling.
The seller rarely uses it, but it’s well-maintained and in top notch shape, just like the rest of the house!
As if this isn’t enough, the seller has hired one of the best home inspectors in the area to do a pre-listing home inspection. You get a copy of the inspection, so you can see exactly what the inspector found, so there are no surprises. Of course I’d encourage you to get your own home inspection, and the seller simply wants to do everything he can to remove any perceived barriers you may have about the condition of this wonderful home.
But wait! The seller is also offering you a buyer’s one-year home warranty, just in case anything changes after you move in, you get a warranty to cover something that might come up like a water heater, cooler, dishwasher etc. that is working fine now, just in case that changes in the next few months.
How’s that for removing concerns about condition and increasing your comfort level?!
I really think you need to get inside this home to appreciate what a beautiful and luxurious home this is, and at a super value… especially for this highly-desired central Boulder location like the Whittier Neighborhood. Call your agent today, or call me directly if you aren’t already working with an agent, and I’ll get you inside immediately.
