About 2255 Emerald Road

Welcome Home to Historic Githens Acres! Your urban farm oasis is a 2018 LEED Platinum Certified home that has countless sustainable finishes, fixtures and Smart-Engineered systems along with a rare combination of water rights, geothermal heating and cooling, solar power, as well as a City of Boulder sewer connection making this property unparalleled to any other in the area. The seller and her architect team left no stone unturned when researching and designing a home that is grid tied, but largely grid independent. The nearly one acre property has an historic low permit number well with well cistern, three extra permitted 2400 gallon underground water storage cisterns, and a full share of Silver Lake Ditch along with a gray-water recycling system, making it both a water abundant and water conserving design that supports a duck habitat, honey-producing bees, and irrigation of more than a dozen mature fruit trees plus raised bed gardens. Another bonus to the location is that the property is county taxes and county zoning only, without a single square inch in a floodway or floodplain. Get every party started in the show-stopping great room, where the stunning vaulted ceilings, two-sided fireplace, huge windows and designer details are the perfect setting, whether you're hosting a farm-to-table supper in the cozy dining room or working from home in the elevated loft. Retreat to the private owners' suite for a soak in the oversized slipper tub or snuggle up on the covered porch with a favorite book as you watch the sunset over the mountains located within biking distance of Pearl Street Mall and walking distance to amazing parks and trail systems, you can enjoy all Boulder has to offer while every day will be like a staycation on Emerald Road! *Ducks and Honeybees Convey *Buyer To Verify Measurements
