$13 million sale of Boulder estate shatters county record for home sale

This month’s $13 million sale of a Boulder estate qualifies as the county’s most expensive sale in history.

Over the past decade, Boulder’s top 10 sales for single-family residences all exceeded $6.5 million, with the second-most expensive hitting $10 million, according to Alana Watkins of VOCA Public Relations, referencing public records. The six-bedroom, six-bathroom home at 1489 Sunset Blvd. closed on Jan. 17.

“It’s not surprising to me that this home is setting records for home sales in Boulder County — it’s truly one of a kind,” said broker Marybeth Emerson of real estate agency Slifer Smith & Frampton.

The Sunset Boulevard home already set a previous record: the first to sell for $7 million in 2020, with Emerson serving as the buyer agent then. It is about 7,300 square feet, and sits on a little over 1 acre — close to Boulder’s Pearl Street. It was listed at $13 million.

Its interior includes an elevator and a charcoal water filtration system, while the exterior features a heated patio, a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen, a copper hot tub, cold plunge and more.

Watkins declined to disclose the identities of the buyer and seller.

It sits on an almost-acre lot, with a pool, a pool house, a Calacatta marble kitchen island, a Colorado Buff limestone terrace and more.

3. 1810 Norwood Ave. — $7.9 million

The third residence on the list at 1810 Norwood Ave. sold for $7.9 million in April 2021, according to Zillow, a real-estate marketplace company. At almost 4,600 square feet, the three-bedroom, four-bathroom house was built in 2019 on a half-acre lot.
