This beautiful home was the perfect place to raise our two daughters. They were born and home-schooled inside its lovely, sun-filled rooms. They played freely outside with the other community children in the safety of a place designed with cars parked on the outside and neighbors we all know. At Nyland, we grew strawberries and giant pumpkins, threw Halloween celebrations, worked on the organic farm, played volleyball and roller hockey, marched in parades, celebrated milestones in the Common House, listened to house concerts, hunted for Easter Eggs, made and ate delicious meals with the neighbors, built creative things in the wood-shop, checked in on elderly neighbors, attended coming of age ceremonies, sold lemonade and gluten-free treats on the sidewalks, and watched our children blossom under the loving guidance of our ‘village.’ Our kids are now in college and we are itching for a new adventure, so with 20 years of fond memories, we are ready to pass our beloved home on to the care of a new owner who wants to experience life in an inter-generational cohousing community.
Nyland Cohousing is located on approximately 37 acres, eight miles east of downtown Boulder and 45 minutes from downtown Denver and Denver International Airport. The Nyland community has 42 houses, a 6,000 square foot “Common House” with a commercial kitchen, large dining room, workout room, playroom, a craft room and guest rooms, as well as a greenhouse, farm, playground, pavilion, basketball court, volleyball court, wood shop, community gardens and many other amenities. As a resident at Nyland, you will live in a safe neighborhood among caring neighbors and can join in on community activities such as community meals, yoga classes, celebrations, land workdays, community meetings, etc. You will also be able to buy fresh, organic veggies from the North Field Farm, the farm on our property.
Nyland is surrounded by undevelopable “Open Space,” with trails and bike paths leading to Louisville, Lafayette, and Boulder. It has the feel of being in the quiet countryside when only a few miles from Boulder, Denver and the mountains. You can wake up to the sounds of birds chirping, enjoy scenic walks in the surrounding Open Space and watch the sunset over the mountains. If you want a bit more action, it is only a 15-minute drive to downtown Boulder, where you can catch the farmer's market, watch the street performers on the Pearl Street Mall or enjoy one of the many great restaurants. The University of Colorado (CU) and Naropa University are also in downtown Boulder. If you like to hike and bike, there are trails and bike paths right out of Nyland's back meadow. By bike, it is only 15 minutes to downtown Louisville with its many wonderful restaurants. A 20-minute drive will bring you to the Chautauqua trailhead where you can hike to the top of Green Mountain or Bear Peak in Boulder's vast Open Space. A 45-minute drive will bring you to Indian Peaks Wilderness. And a 1.5-hour drive will bring you to Rocky Mountain National Park.
