The Presbyterian Manor opened in 1963 as a non-profit apartment building for persons of retirement age. In “1960” a group from the First Presbyterian Church of Boulder met with their pastor to discuss the purchase of Menlo Park for senior housing. A non-profit corporation was formed called Presbyterian Manor and plans were drawn to build a brick building high enough to accommodate 80 apartments for seniors.
WHO WE ARE
Residency in the Manor is open to persons 62 years of age and older. We are an unassisted living residence for Seniors. Residents are required to make the Manor their primary residence as well as their permanent home. Residents must agree to occupy their apartments a minimum of 7 months of each calendar year.
Presbyterian Manor is an 80 unit, 11-story brick building with eight apartments on each floor. Two elevators and two sets of interior stairs are easily accessible. Apartment size range from a 500 square feet efficiency style to a 720 square feet two-bedroom apartment. Two-bedroom apartments are occupied by two persons. Each apartment features ample closet space, separate kitchen, full bath
with tub and shower, and a glass enclosed balcony. Extended cable television and wireless internet is provided by the Manor. All utilities except telephone service are provided by the Manor.
It is the policy of the Board of Directors that we offer one-bedroom apartments when they become available to current residents of the Manor before considering applications from outside. For that reason, an applicant who desires a one-bedroom apartment may be offered a smaller unit in the building. A move-up to a one-bedroom unit is based on seniority and a fee following a written request. All one-bedroom, efficiency and studio apartments are occupied by one person. An applicant who refuses an apartment when offered will be placed at the bottom of the wait list; refusing an apartment a
second time removes an applicant from the wait list.
Services at the Manor are comparable to those provided in most commercially operated senior living communities. A maintenance manager is on duty Monday through Friday to address problems. A lounge area and kitchen are available for pre-scheduled social functions or day-to-day recreational activities. Coin operated laundry facilities are available, as well as a community and exercise room. Air conditioning is available in your apartment with a one-time fee starting at $400.00 and up. Parking spaces are available for each resident for a fee. Fifteen garages based on seniority are available for a monthly rental fee.
Landscaped grounds, a fish pond and garden spaces are available to the residents for their enjoyment.
The Manor is located near downtown Boulder, where shops, banks, parks, churches and a library are within walking distance. Next door to the Manor is an Alfalfa’s Organic Grocery Store.
