Charles Haertlings Mid-century modern masterpiece, The Menkick House (1970), is attainable for the first time in nearly 30 years.

The design of the four story home flows from the site and its imposing backdrop of Gyp Rock (Green Rock). The home is located in Boulder's exclusive Knollwood Estates. Just a short walk along the wooded path from the end of the cul-de-sac leads to the heart of Pearl Street and all that Boulder has to offer. Stunning views of the Flatirons, Mt Sanitas, and Red Rock from the Master suite. Three additional bedroom suites cascade down the rock from the main level. Additionally features a family room, media room and art studio/office.
