It’s always fun to look at what is happening in the real estate market. It’s especially fun to take a peek at some of the most beautiful homes in Boulder County. Currently there are 78 homes on the market in Boulder County with price tags of $2,000,000 or more. Out of that group, just one is under contract. That lucky home is Tim Goodacre’s listing at 512 Marine Street in Boulder listed for $2,350,000. It is a remodeled 1902 home with beautiful landscaping just a quick walk from the Pearl Street Mall. But I digress… Today I am going to list the 10 most expensive residential listings in Boulder County. Here it goes!

1) 7171 Pike Road – $9,000,000

The highest priced residential property listed in Boulder County right now is actually an 80 acre farm.  The house is 4,522 square feet and was apparently built in 1900.  There are not any remarks about this listing in the MLS so it is a bit of a secret listing.  From the photos it looks like this home has a lake, a full equestrian set up with indoor arena and many outbuildings.  But don’t tell anyone, I think it’s a secret.

Well there you have it, the top ten most expensive listings in Boulder County.  It’s interesting that none are a traditional in town home.  The price per square foot measure breaks down and the outdoor amenities increase.  The house is important but it becomes less so when you have 115 acres with other uses available to you.

If you are a qualified buyer and want to view any of these properties give me  a call.  I can show any listed property in Boulder County.  None of these listings are mine, so you will have impartial information and good advice.  Neil Kearney 303.818.4055
