Why we have a crush on this property

With its steeply pitched eaves and earth-toned exterior, this angular abode for sale mimics the peaks surrounding it. The contemporary chalet was built into a Boulder mountainside in 1971, and is equal parts cozy and modern.

Inside, the house plays up its angles and lines with warm woods and exposed bricks. It’s anchored by a fireplaced living room, where floor-to-ceiling windows look out to the mountains in the distance and vaulted ceilings add a sense of spaciousness.

The living area flows into an open-concept dining room with a wood stove, while around the corner, a breezy kitchen features terracotta tiles, brand-new appliances, and knotty pine wood cabinets.

Each of the three bedrooms are a lesson in hygge. The master bedroom offers radiant heat floors and electronic shades, plus a gorgeous master bath with a soaking tub and glass-walled steam shower. Another bedroom boasts a lofted space that’d make a cozy reading nook, while a modest home office makes plenty of space for stashing all those books.

The interior of the chalet does a stunning job of maximizing the mountain views, but the outside kicks it up a notch. A wraparound deck overlooking Indian Peaks is suitable for both sunbathing and al fresco dining. The sloping yard and detached garage, meanwhile, are the cherry on top. 

The home is listed for $947,500 by Karen Bernardi, an agent with Coldwell Banker Residential 14 in Colorado.
