The Glass House is a Boulder Estate that You Have to See to BelieveAmanda Molitor
In the beloved city of Boulder, one home has completely redefined mountain living. 333-375 Bellevue Drive, an iconic estate known locally as the “Glass House,” is a stunning home with sparkling glass walls that immerse you in nature’s beauty. Now, this one-of-a-kind house can be yours. Listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers, Jeff and Carliss Erickson, the “Glass House,” Boulder’s most noteworthy residence is available for $14,250,000.
“We are so excited to represent the ‘Glass House.’ It’s such an amazing residence in a legendary Boulder setting. And to think some lucky buyer is going to be able to purchase this home at this price point is extraordinary,” commented Jeff Erickson. “This is one of the finest residences we personally have had the opportunity to represent and we are extremely grateful.”
The home, which was finished in 2008, is a true masterpiece brought to life by architect Matthew McMullen, of Architectural Maneuvers, and interior designer Mickey Ackerman, of Amirob Interiors. Sitting on more than an acre of extensively landscaped grounds at the edge of Chautauqua Park, under the famous Flatirons, this striking estate maximizes its captivating 360-degree views with its frameless glass walls. Gazing out at the surrounding green spaces, one might feel as if they are floating above the hills of Boulder.
For buyers wishing to live amongst the treetops, this five-bedroom, eight-bathroom house is a stylish and surreal escape. All four levels of the home are infused with contemporary design featuring nature-inspired elements such as Honduran mahogany floors, carved wood doors, a natural boulder water feature, and a koi pond. While this home provides plenty of space it also offers the convenience of elevator access from the garage to the master suite located on the top floor.
“What an incredible opportunity this home offers,” said Carliss Erickson. “The design is timeless, the views are iconic, you can start and end your day with sunrises and sunsets. You really feel like you’re on top of the world but in reality, you’re in the heart of the city. This isn’t a property that you schedule an hour showing for, you’ll want to take your time and truly experience this remarkable home and the serenity that it affords.”
While every room in the home is expertly curated to evoke a sense of wonder, the cantilevered glass living room is truly the most spectacular display of modern design. The east-facing space is perched on the edge of a steep hillside, creating the illusion of relaxing in the canopy of mature trees just outside its glass walls. Immerse yourself even deeper into that feeling by stepping onto five feet of thick, glass flooring that connects the living space to the west-facing terrace. This remarkable feature allows vibrant natural light to illuminate the level below it and adds yet another unheard-of detail to the home’s brilliant design.
Glass flooring is also incorporated into the beveled glass staircase, which ascends to the top floor master suite. This private enclave is a peaceful retreat that comes complete with a glass-walled library, impeccable views, elevator access and a spa-like, five-piece master bathroom.
The well-appointed residence continues to impress with its gourmet chef’s kitchen as well as other fun and functional bonus features. Make working or studying from home a luxurious experience in the home’s two office suites, spend quality time with friends and family in the home theater and game room, or unwind in the spa which boasts a soothing steam room. Additional must-have features include the waterfall-filled plunge pool, heated driveway and three-car garage.
With multiple spaces for hosting guests, such as the various terraces, an outdoor summer kitchen, an al fresco dining deck, and a spacious rooftop with panoramic vistas of the mountains and plains, the “Glass House” can be your own serene escape or the ultimate entertaining destination. Extended stay guests can enjoy privacy and generous accommodations in the separate, two-story guesthouse which features one bedroom, one-and-a-half baths, as well as an additional garage and parking pad.
This home presents the one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in a place where the hills meet the sky.
