Fort Collins house description

The Hideaway is a quaint cottage tucked in a Downtown Old Town Fort Collins residential neighborhood for your quiet enjoyment yet a 3 block walk to shops and restaurants. This Single Family Home is set on a small, fenced lot with outdoor living on the front porch and patio (with gas grill). A newer home in an older neighborhood, The Hideaway was built on a mature lot allowing the foliage to give a feeling of privacy in a quiet setting.

Inside, the main floor has a master bedroom with a gas fireplace, queen bed, and full en-suite master bathroom with 2 sinks. The gas fireplace can also be enjoyed from the living area which includes an open concept eating area, breakfast bar and kitchen - fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, dishes, pots and pans and utensils. There is also a powder room and laundry on main.

The lower level with daylight windows has a family room, 3/4 bathroom, and two bedrooms (one queen/twin trundle).

This home is all about location, location, location. Across the street is a public library with a playground. A three block walk takes you to the heart of Old Town, Old Town Square, where you can enjoy all the stores and restaurants Old Town has to offer and borrow a bike from the Fort Collins Bike Library in the summertime. The Hideaway has easy access to local micro breweries, the Poudre River trail system and local events.

3 bedrooms (one up; two down), 2.5 bathrooms (one full, one ¾, one ½), central air, gas fireplace, 1600 square feet, two off-street dedicated parking spaces, single family home, and location, location, location!

Sleeps 8 (6 adults max). Traveling with a larger group? We have a brand new studio apartment in the same neighborhood that can sleep up to 4. Ask about discounts if you rent both (special event nights excluded).

                  Location

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  The house is located near Peterson and Oak streets, within a 3 block walk to the heart of Downtown Old Town with a plethora of shops and restaurants plus a few breweries...

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We live in Old Town and absolutely love the walkability factor. Aside from work, family and house projects, we keep busy walking the dogs, going for runs, eating at local establishments and checking out local festivals.

                  Why the Owner Chose Fort Collins:
                  It's great to have the option of owning a newer property in Old Town - less maintenance as a rental - and a possible future retirement home for us.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The Hideaway is a newer home in an old part of town with extra bathrooms and central air. Although newer, the house has charm, character - and a fireplace! It is a private single family home so renters do not have to share any walls, floors or ceilings with others. The location is one of the best in Old Town. This is a 400K+ home and we pride ourselves in offering clean and comfortable rentals that we ourselves would be happy to live in or invite our own friends or family to stay a while. We are kid and dog friendly and it makes us happy to hear people say the house is even nicer than the pictures show. The house is well stocked and we will continue to make improvements each year.
