The Tyler-Monroe-Bartlett House
It's time to capitalize on this unprecedented opportunity to create your private family compound in Boulder, Colorado; recently dubbed by Monocle Magazine as "the #2 small city in the world to live!" Escape the congestion of the big city, and relish in the vibe of this eclectic, intellectual, outdoors-obsessed town. You can own a piece of Boulder history with this landmarked home on a verdant 25,995 square foot lot. Better than Mapleton Hill and walking distance to Ideal Marketplace, and Pearl Street's shops and restaurants. The Italian/Prairie-influenced residence is nestled into a park-like setting at the north edge of downtown Boulder. The home is landmarked by the City of Boulder. An adjacent lot (2940 18th Street) is also for sale and is fully permitted for a single-family residence.
A well-preserved example of an eclectic variant of the Italian Renaissance Revival with elements of the Prairie School of design, the home was last purchased by Albert & Eleanor Bartlett in 1956. Dr. Bartlett was a distinguished member of the CU Physics faculty for 37 years.
Prof. Bartlett was a founder of the Blue Line and the Greenbelt movement, the PLAN-Boulder organization, and Boulder's bike path system - all aimed at preserving Boulder's beautiful environment. Perhaps best known in academia for his lecture, "Arithmetic, Population & Energy," Prof. Bartlett also taught at the Nobel Institute for Physics in Stockholm; and held multiple degrees from Harvard University.
While having undergone various updates, the interior of the home retains a significant portion of its historical heritage. The historic home buff could be happy with a few updates; while the lover of a historic exterior with modern conveniences and spaces will enjoy the latitude of creating an entirely new and modern interior decor.
This prominent house makes use of local stone, a clay tile roof, and echoes the Mediterranean Revival architectural style that is found at the University of Colorado-Boulder campus. The main level is the center of entertainment with a formal dining room; south-facing living room; and breezy porch overlooking the park-like east lawn. To the west, abutting 18th Street, sits a 10,587 square foot lot (listed separately at $900,000) that has received the City of Boulder Planning Department approval for building a single-family home. Owners will only sell the lot and house in conjunction with each other, which offers the opportunity to construct a separate residence, or create a true "family compound" of the property.
