2 Million Dollar Mobile Home 1 of 10 Most Expensive Real Estate Sales

Summer Real Estate Boulder Colo

It’s true, this summer a mobile home sold for $2,400,000 in Boulder Colorado.  The catch of course is that the home sits on 40 superb acres backing to Boulder Open Space and offering serene mountain views.  This home, one of the 10 most expensive real estate sales in Boulder the past 30 days also included a 3,000 square foot shop and numerous outbuildings.

Next door is Harlequin’s Gardens a natural and organic based greenhouse. We stopped in and met some of the folks that work there.  Great selection of starter plants, especially winter veggies.   This place has a hippie commune vibe and is all about sustainability.

6721 Niwot Hills Drive

Another of the 10 most expensive real estate sales the past 30 days is the nearly 12,000 square foot Niwot home.  Taxes on annual basis: just over $18K a year.  Ouch.  Under contract in three days, this Boulder area mansion sold for full price at $2,200,000.

Boulder’s Best Kept Secret

Perched atop a hill with commanding views up and down the Front Range sits 1545 Sunset Blvd., Boulder Co 80304.  Closing this month at $2.6 Million, it is easily one of the 10 most expensive real estate sales in the past 30 days.  The block where this home sits is mostly one grand remodel after another.  Of course, the home just next door is a mere 60’s ranch waiting for someone’s vision to transform it.

Sunset Boulevard is one of Boulder’s best kept secrets. And in the past 30 days, it is home to one of the 10 most expensive real estate sales.  I love the cedar garage doors and Craftsman finishes.

If you get the opportunity, drive, bike or walk the Sunset Blvd area.  It is choke full of beautiful homes, with everything from Italian Renaissance to American Craftsman.

I Love Boulder Mountain Views

The houses along Norwood are some of my all-time favorites.  I love that the street zig zags with landscaping and speed bumps. Probably a fire fighter’s nightmare, but it does make for a gorgeous road.  The homes to the south side are of course bigger, many with commanding mountain and plains views. Every so often, a court juts off with a handful of homes offering exquisite mountain views. This is the case for 1650 Wilson Ct, 1 of 10 Most Expensive Real Estate Sales in Boulder Co the past thirty days.

Closing for $50K better than list price, 1650 Wilson Court is a gorgeous home in NoBo tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac just off ever popular Norwood Ave.  The home certainly commands amazing views of the Boulder Flatiron Mountains.   An elegantly remodeled home brimming with sophistication and charm.  The home included a 1/4 share of Silver Lake ditch rights and a roof top office with 360 degree views.  Final price: $2,800,000.

And yet, with Boulder Colo real estate, your neighbors might be anything.  A few doors over, there is the most amazing flower garden; it looks like an enormous basket.  And just around the corner from that? A home with a gravel driveway and in need of some fresh paint.  Or, possibly, a wonderful opportunity for you and your favorite architect to navigate building in Boulder.

Maxwell Park

Around the corner, you’ll encounter 700 Linden Avenue.  Closing for under two million, it is 1 of the 10 Most Expensive Real Estate Sales in Boulder the past 30 days.  From the outside, it is really not the most exciting house on the street.  Inside, you’ll find an exquisite chef’s kitchen and extensive remodel.  Homes in this area are known for large lots.  Almost across the street is Maxwell Park.  Walk up a short, unassuming dirt berm and you are rewarded with a dirt trail encircling a pristine pond.

Newlands gem closes for full price, before ever hitting the open MLS and backs to an alley. Go figure. This is Boulder Colorado

3141 9th Street in Boulder’s Newlands is a pretty home backing to a dirt alley.  Surprising because the home is one of the 10 Most Expensive Real Estate Sales in Boulder in the last month.   Newlands is a super popular area in Boulder. It is walking distance to North Boulder Park as well as some of the best shopping at North Broadway Market.  This contemporary home closed for $1,750,000 in mid August 2014.

Remodeled during the heyday of Boulder real estate – 2006, this home offers an open floor plan and sits atop a hill in coveted Newlands.  The area is a mix of 1940’s bungalows with less than a thousand square feet and gorgeous remodels such as this Top 10 home from the past 30 day list of 10 Most Expensive Real Estate Sales.  5,425 Square feet in size, the home recently sold for $1.7 million dollars.  Taxes in 2013 were a tad over $12K a year.  The home is near beloved North Boulder Park and the Mount Sanitas Trailhead.

Attached Dwelling Is Single Most Expensive Sale

Perhaps ironically, the single most expensive in the past 30 days is not a house or an amazing lot, but a mere condo.  Well, I guess there is nothing “mere” about this spectacular attached penthouse dwelling at 1155 Canyon.  Closing in July, after only a day on the market, 1155 Canyon Blve # 406 is the # 1 residential sale on the 10 Most Expensive Real Estate Sales in Boulder.
