A new listing in Boulder, CO, embodies the best of both worlds. It has nature views, yet sits close to downtown. It’s also an intriguing blend of vintage and modern materials.

This four-bedroom residence, which boasts mountain views from every room, is listed for $3,150,000 with Zach Zeldner of Compass.

The current owners, who bought the place in 2005, finished work on a second-story addition in 2018. They took two 53-foot shipping containers from Chicago and paired them with reclaimed wood from an Indiana barn. The wood now clads the side exterior and can be found on the ceiling of the main floor.

Perhaps the home’s greatest example of ingenuity is in the four bathrooms, whether it’s the conversion of a vintage dresser into a vanity or the placement of a Union Jack flag motif between two farmhouse-style sinks.
