When moving into the high-end category of residential property, attention given to the design, construction and details takes on a whole new meaning.

Almost everything in these houses is hand-picked and custom-made, and have a breath-taking factor built in.
At 1133 Timber Lane, for example, every piece of furniture and art was chosen specifically to fit the area it occupies. For that reason, almost all of what you’ll see at this property will be included in the sale.
“Everything about this house is a work of art,” said Barb Silverman, a broker associate at Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty. “And you can see all the way to Denver as well as white caps from the deck.”
The house was designed to be part of nature, she added. “They wanted to create an environment where the outside flows in.”
The walkway leading up to the front door, for example, winds through a granite canyon. Once inside, you step into an atrium with a ceiling that looks like a night sky full of stars. The room features a series of waterfalls and exotic gardens.
Entering the house, you step onto a translucent floating staircase that lights up like a full moon, giving what Silverman calls the “wow factor.”
“The house is magical and animated; alive and fresh,” she added. “It will appeal to someone who has that entrepreneurial, creative, artistic spirit.”
She expects it to take up to two years to find a buyer for a property as unique as this one.
“I see it selling to an entrepreneur, a tech star, a business owner or for a family estate for people who want to add to their investments.”
The available market for high-end luxury houses in the Boulder and surrounding area seems slim, but it’s not because the houses aren’t there, according to Silverman. “They are certainly around, but they’re never for sale – they’re more hidden and discreet,” she said.
