Real Estate

Sitting by the base of Flagstaff Mountain, the first Boulder home built using shipping containers has hit the market for sale July 13, 20202, with a price tag of $3.15 million.



The Boulder couple built the home’s upper levels out of two shipping containers in 2012.



The very unique and artistic four-bedroom, four-bathroom property at 505 College Ave, has a custom main level featuring over 1,800 square feet with concrete floors, oversized windows and soaring ceilings finished with 100-year-old bar wood. Downstairs, a 958-square-foot finished basement is available for storage.



Mark Gelband and Courtney Loveman built the 4,000-square-foot contemporary home in 2012 using two 53-foot shipping containers comprise the home’s second level. The shipping containers comprise the 1,200-square-foot upper level, and two of the upstairs bedrooms share a 500-square-foot deck.



Sitting on an elevated lot, the unique property has Flatirons views to the south, unobstructed Red Rocks and Foothills views to the north, and eastern vistas over downtown Boulder.



The open concept kitchen can accommodate any size dinner party, and features custom Scandinavian cabinets, concrete counters, a farm sink and a gas range stove. A glass and steel garage door in the living room opens up to the patio with an outdoor kitchen and fire pit.



Upstairs, the master suite features a huge walk-in closet, a sitting area, two private additional decks and its own staircase.



The home also features a two-car detached garage, which was custom-built from shipping containers, as well.



“The owners poured their heart and soul into this home,” said listing agent Zach Zeldner of Compass. “They wish there were things they could take with them or replicate in their next home. They have loved living in the home.”
