This 3-bedroom, 2⅓-bath home sits on a 0.45-acre lot atop the hill behind Colorado Mills at 13400 W. 10th Avenue, Golden. Built in 1937, it has a country feel to it, with its gravel driveway circling an old tree and its split-rail fencing. Every room has either birch or walnut wood paneling — not synthetic paneling, but real wood paneling, in-cluding on the slanted ceilings upstairs! The kitchen cabinets are not factory built, but built to fit from birch wood by the now-deceased master craftsman who lived here. The living room fireplace is set in a wall of Silver Plume granite, with a walnut mantel. Built-in cabinetry abounds, and there are even built-in desks and shelving (of birch) in the upstairs bedrooms. Originally on well and septic, the home is now on public water. The grounds include multiple fruit trees — pear, apple, apricot and walnut — and all the trees are maintained by Schulhoff under a yearly contract. I love this house, and you will too!
