Tranquil, passive solar home in a spectacular setting. Enjoy mountain cross-breezes from your perch above the North St Vrain river and overlooking Planet Bluegrass (see & hear it from the backyard!!), with excellent views of Longs Peak (14,259) & Mt Meeker (13,916), two blocks from downtown Lyons. Home to world-class musicians, artists, excellent restaurants, a distillery, enchanting wedding venues, incredible outdoor resources and two nationally acclaimed music festivals (Rockygrass and the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival), Lyons may be the Front Range's worst-kept-best-secret.
Enjoy it all for a romantic evening, a wedding celebration, or an extended stay in this one-of-a-kind modern home. Efficiently designed, with 14-18' cedar cathedral ceilings in the main area, locally quarried sandstone floors and clerestory windows, this 1380 sq' (including 240 sq' loft) is ideal for 2-6 people. With 2 Bedrooms - large sunset-facing vaulted master (king) and sunrise-facing guest bedroom (queen) - and 2 Baths, along with a spacious loft (full bed/office), the home sleeps 6 six comfortably (7 with roll-away). Enjoy the newly renovated 3/4 master Bath, full hall bath, fully equipped kitchen, dining table, breakfast area, exercise bike, library, espresso maker, full-size washer/dryer, stereo and more (make note: there is NO TELEVISION; however there is reliable high speed Wi-Fi)
Outside, relax on the 300 sq' shaded deck and enjoy 360-degree town, canyon and mountain views. With deck furniture for 6, gas grill, outdoor speakers and Wi-Fi throughout the property, the backyard truly is an extension of the house and has plenty of privacy thanks to the home's placement and orientation. Enjoy the organic feel of native stonework as every step, path and patio stone came from the property and was excavated and laid by the homeowner.
During your stay, enjoy easy proximity to downtown. 2-3 blocks from Stone Cup & Barking Dog coffee shops, Button Rock bakery, St Vrain & Steamboat Markets, Oskar Blues. Walking distance to St. Vrain river, riding distance to world-class mountain and road biking, excellent hiking...20 mins from downtown Boulder, 30-35 mins from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.
For those celebrating their wedding locally, you can see the Planet Bluegrass wedding pavilion from the backyard, Riverbend Park is walking distance, Lyons Farmette, Lionscrest Manor and Stone Mountain Lodge are each less than a 5 min drive.
There may be no other Front Range experience quite like this. Intimate, stunning yet comfortable and casual, an ideal base for day trips and adventures or the perfect spot to just chill and watch the afternoon thunderstorms form over the Continental Divide before making their way down the canyon.
