Mountain living awaits just 5 minutes from downtown Boulder on this unique 5-acre estate. Bordered by Mt. Sanitas Open Space and Wildlife Sanctuary, this Sunshine Canyon property is situated on a northern hillside slope across the street from Lion’s Lair Trail. A seasonal pond and stream run through the land featuring an open, grassy field. Drenched in southern exposure, the stunning home showcases idyllic views from expansive windows throughout. An open floorplan flowing with custom finishes inspires outdoor connectivity to a vast two-level deck and a flagstone patio. A custom stone fireplace anchors the living area while a non-conforming bedroom offers flex space. The kitchen boasts a large island and stainless steel appliances. Encompassing the entire top floor, the primary suite presents a 5-piece bath and sitting area. Lower-level secondary bedrooms are complemented by a full bath. This rare escape is complete with a 2-story cabin with electric, a 2-car carport and an oversized 2-car garage.
