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.
