Contemporary style updates greet you in every room of this two-story , 2 bed/2 bath Top Floor Birchwood Drive Condo including new flooring, paint, and fixtures. This is a rare find because there are a minimal amount of shared walls, making it very appealing. This unit is also unique to any other unit in the community due to the charming loft space (not factored into the square footage provided) that would be perfect for yoga or meditation and is accessible via a beautiful kiva-inspired aspen wood ladder. Entertaining is easy on the main level as the kitchen flows into a bright eating space, which spills into the living room with a wood-burning fireplace and shaded outdoor deck. Two bedrooms and a bath upstairs are separated by an open walkway flooded with light. This condo also includes a single-car detached garage with a smart remote, battery backup garage door opener, and built-in shelving. The garage is located directly across from the unit and the HOA has approved others to install EV vehicle charging stations in their garages. Live in this perfect North Boulder location and walk/bike to NoBo restaurants, cafes, schools, public transit and all of your shopping needs via the Wonderland Creek Bike Path, which connects to 150+ miles of Boulder trails. Enjoy the unparalleled resort-like amenities of the Winding Trail community including two pools, three heated tennis courts, a full-sized sand volleyball court, playground, pet park, and sprawling greenbelts.
Our home here in the Birchwood Drive Condo community of the Winding Trail neighborhood is a special place. It is tucked away on a quiet street in North Boulder, in a neighborhood widely known for its amenities including two pools, three heated tennis courts, a full-sized sand volleyball court, a pet park, a playground, and beautiful greenbelts. We knew this was the right condo for us as it struck the perfect balance between being in walking & biking distance to restaurants, shops, schools, and work with the feeling of serenity that comes with living amongst tall, mature trees in a quiet neighborhood with so many amenities that we wouldn’t have to look outside of our own small neighborhood for weekend leisure. Connecting with nature, coffee, and shops is as easy as walking from our front door to the Wonderland Creek Bikeway, which connects to 150+ miles of designated Boulder trails. Parks and open space abound in this corner of North Boulder and include Parkside and Elks Park, which are each three minutes away by bike. Wonderland Lake is less than a 15 minute easy bike ride and conveniently along a route that passes by Lucky’s Bakehouse for great coffee and pastries. Our home is a special place and we hope that its new owners will enjoy the many elements that we grew to cherish.
Our favorite spaces in the condo are the kitchen which flows into the dining area and outdoor deck and the private loft accessed by ladder from the second floor. Our idea of a great weekend is spent preparing good food in the kitchen while chatting with friends casually sipping cocktails in the dining area and chatting outdoors on the deck. The second floor loft is an adaptable space and has served as a yoga & meditation space, a quiet reading nook, and excess storage space. We’ve carefully updated every room of our condo with contemporary finishes, new paint, tile, and carpet. Our home truly reflects all that it means to live the Boulder lifestyle.
We feel fortunate that some of our fondest memories in our home are activities that we do on a regular basis as function of our great location. For example, we’ve cherished the ability to walk to the grocery store daily or enjoy a delicious meal at a local restaurant and stop at our pick of a number of parks on the way home for the kids to play. We smile every time we picture our kids sledding on the best hill in NoBo, which is in our neighborhood, and swimming at dusk in our community pools. Our neighborhood is close-knit and organizes a number of fun events throughout the year including a summer BBQ, a Halloween party at the playground, and a garage sale in the Fall.
Our favorite restaurants within walking distance include tacos at Mojo’s, brunch at Tangerine, burgers at Murphy’s, and Buddha Thai. The lattes at Red Rock Coffee are fantastic. The Rayback Collective is short bike ride away. Local boutique wellness and yoga studios include Kitani Yoga, Raj Yoga + Meditation, and Core Power. Strength training classes at Bella Strength are unlike anything I’ve experienced in a good way! The playful & competitive culture at Rally Sport is a Boulder hallmark.
This sweet pocket of Boulder is home to some of the best early-childhood schools in the area including Journey School, Jarrow, and Shining Mountain Waldorf. Our neighborhood Boulder Valley District schools of Crest View Elementary and Centennial Middle School are well-respected and less than one-mile from the house.

Trips to grocery stores and general shopping are a breeze from the house. Lucky’s Market and Bakehouse is a fully-stocked grocer with an amazing bakery and is 2-minutes by car. Safeway Market and ethnic grocers including Indian and Asian are less than 10-minutes by car. Larger retailers including Target, Home Depot, Sur la Table, Apple, Nordstrom Rack, and H&M are located 12-minutes south at the 29th Street Mall outdoor shopping district.
