Oversized four car garage is fully heated and has an extensive workbench and storage. One of the largest lots in Somerset (1.65 acres) on a quiet cul-de-sac. Beautifully landscaped, park like feel with fruit trees, herb and vegetable gardens, fully fenced in for kids and dogs. Water features include fountain in the center of the circle drive and a waterfall in the back yard. Ideal home for entertaining or enjoying with your family. Neighborhood pool membership available. Surrounded by trails for walking and biking into and around Old Town Niwot. Great restaurants, shops and community events in the charming town. The yard had plenty of room for a pool, outdoor kitchen, tennis court, par 3 golf, putting green or whatever suits your fancy! What we love about the lifestyle: Coming home to our own private park-like setting is one of the things we enjoy most about living here. It is lovely to pull up to the circle drive especially when the fountain is running in the afternoon catching the light from the setting sun. We enjoy our views with the snowcapped mountains drawing us up to ski, hike, bike and participate in events in some of our favorite towns like Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek and Keystone. As the cliche goes, go for the winter and stay for the summer! We enjoy preparing dinners at home in our gourmet kitchen with fresh vegetables and herbs from our own gardens! Watching the sunset is a lovely way to end the day. Sitting out on the back deck, listening to the water running from the ponds in the backyard is a nice spot for reading or enjoying catching up with family or planning our next vacation. Our entertainment and exercise areas in the lower level get a lot of use. We keep stress at bay from high-paced jobs with daily workouts. Watching a movie in our favorite spot with a roaring fire and a nice bottle of wine is a great way to end a busy week or to reconnect after travel. The 1,500-bottle wine cellar enables us to increase our appreciation for fine wines. Accommodating large groups for events like big birthdays is a nice way to celebrate life's milestones. The abundance of light throughout the house is delightful and we enjoy the spacious and open floor plan. It is nice to be able to be in the kitchen but very connected with the activity in the great room. The main floor master suite with office, library and huge master bath with separate walk-in closets are among our favorite features of this home. Cold weather and snow is no issue - we enjoy having a four-car heated garage - a bit decadent but we enjoy it! Somerset is a vibrant community with great access to the outdoor lifestyle that Boulder County offers. This lifestyle is enhanced by living where access to the extensive trail system is only three doors away! With more than 300 days of sunshine and a climate that facilitates outdoor activity all year long we like to get out as often as we can. Biking into Niwot takes less than 5 minutes (downhill) although it takes a little longer to bike back up! Walking into town for dinner, a yoga class or one of the many events allows is to enjoy the small-town charm of Niwot. Niwot boasts a dozen restaurants, three pizzerias and two breweries - pretty impressive for a small town! Strong schools are an important part of any community - Niwot has great public schools and many private school choices as well.
