StarHouse and Morning Star: In search of a new stewart for the land and the star-house vision.

Imagine a new Vision:

A new model emerges for sharing sacred space in a cooperative venture around one of Boulder County’s most significant and accessible spiritual retreat centers
StarHouse and surrounding properties becomes a template for an innovative model of Sacred Ground and Right Relationship.
A number of people (or organizations) share the responsibilities of Visioning and Tending; and, they share the use of the StarHouse and all related landscapes and Sacred Sites (there are several!)
Maintenance and management is handled by a core organization
Retreat space in the cabin is available to the organization, as are the other facilities
We have put together a truly rare, wonderful and absolutely unique property just outside of Boulder.

Location and size:

Less than 4 miles from Downtown Boulder, to the West, up beautiful Sunshine Canyon.
10 minutes from Boulder, in Nature
Buildings include: Elegant 7288 sq. ft. Home
Remarkable 12-sided Trans-faith Temple – StarHouse
2-bedroom boutique Retreat Cabin
Two approved Building Sites (one residential, one a “Fellowship Hall”)
Special Zoning allows for this unique “Use of Community

Here are the main features:

1.)StarHouse: The StarHouse has earned, after twenty years of activity, great praise from people from all over the world who have visited there. It also earned the excellent zoning category “Use of Community Significance” from the Boulder County Commissioners in 2009. StarHouse, a meeting/gathering place of sacred significance, built on the principles of sacred geometry and recognized by several spiritual teachers, sits upon 35 acres of beautiful wildflower-filled meadows at the edge of a glorious forest of tall pine and fir trees.
Many aspects of the construction of StarHouse are unique, too many to list here. This place deserves a tour.

2.) MorningStar: Also on 35 acres, a residence of great size and beauty — and thus great possibility — that serves as an adjunct to the StarHouse activity. You can’t build them this size anymore (except with great difficulty).

3.) Whole property: These two parcels combine with a third parcel, undeveloped, also 35 acres, making a rectangle of land 105 acres in size, including many beautiful natural features, just ten minutes from downtown Boulder.

4.) Other features:
* Agricultural activity on this property for over a hundred years has earned it a favored tax status. We harvest St. John’s Wort, Oregon Grape Root, and other wildcrafted herbs.
* The entire property is certified organic, which helps tremendously with agricultural sales. (This is another feature that is hard to come by these days.)
* Many installations of art, landscaping, and energy-centers, including Mary’s Well (rare in Colorado to have water rising to the surface), a Dodecahedron. two Labyrinths, and many other features that you need to see to believe.
* We have created long firebreaks, and thinning of trees, and have received recognition from our local fire departments for these efforts.

Very favorable zoning that took two decades to achieve, a strong community that has developed over these years with StarHouse as a shining center, a house of a size that is rarely approved anymore, location near Boulder yet removed from the noise and bustle, in the lap of Nature — suggest that you ought to come have a stroll through these well-crafted buildings in this beautiful/exquisite natural setting. Nothing like this exists in the whole country! – that’s what we’ve been told by those who travel widely around our country, as well as in the world.

A fractional ownership of the property (20%) is also possible.  Please call me for additional details.

As your Buyer's Agent, I will help you navigate through the process of buying property while acting as an advocate for you, and I will be looking-out for your best interests at all times.

In Colorado, the listing agent can have an agreement with the seller as a "Seller's Agent" (with a contractual obligation to be an advocate for the seller), or as a "Transaction Broker"(with an obligation to be "neutral" between the two parties). In either of these cases, the buyer is typically under-represented.

For those reasons, if you're a buyer, it will typically be to your advantage to be represented by a Buyer's Agent, and to have a Buyer's Agency relationship with your broker. For the Department of Regulatory Agencies' definition and clarification of "Buyer's Agent", please follow the link.
