3778 Wonderland Hill Ave [Boulder Notable Sale]

Boulder NOTABLE SALE: 3778 Wonderland Hill Ave | $6.3M

This sale is why it’s critical to (a) pay attention to new listings and (b) have plenty of dry powder. 

James P. Maxwell was a surveyor, state senator, and an engineer. He was also Boulder's second mayor, President of First National Bank, and owned a cattle ranch north of Boulder. Old JP built this expansive mansion (can we call it the Maxwell House?) in 1906 with picture perfect views of the Flatirons, on the edge of what eventually was called Maxwell Lake. 

Today, the property sits on a 2 acre flag-lot with subdivision potential. How many parcels will be carved out and homes built here? Back of the envelope analysis suggests at least three new homes, possibly more. 

Deal notes: Sold for cash, showings were over in two days, and the property was available for less than 72 hours. In this business, speed is a competitive advantage and why we drop everything to focus on getting our clients in to see property quickly.
