Smart Buy | The Shapley House [VIDEO]

3 Bed | 1 Office | 3 Bath | 2,456 SQFT | 6 Car Garage | 2 Car Carport

A mid-century marvel, the Shapely House is an architecturally stunning home designed with a nod towards Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonia. Created for physicist Alan Shapely, who is credited with bringing the Bureau of Standards (later National Institute of Standards and Technology) to Boulder, Architect Bernard Cahlander designed the home with exposed block made on-site, cork flooring, and expansive use of glass. Tasteful updates under the current owner include a Galvalume standing seam roof and ceiling highlights, a modern and expanded kitchen with Spandrel glass backsplash, Caesarstone countertops, Miele appliances, and an 1,106 SQFT workshop and garage. The original gazebo where the Shapely Family entertained with live music on the expansive 1 acre lot remains as do many organic details of this gorgeous property.  

To better highlight its potential, a feasibility study has been conducted by Geometry and Materials for a subdivision and second home. Whether as a multi-dwelling family estate on two parcels, or an investment opportunity to develop and sell a second home, the possibilities for this estate are endless. 

This home will be on the market soon. To learn more, contact Osman at 303.746.6896.
