About the Property
Designer's Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) location location location
This is truly a unique property, melding contemporary and regional design touches throughout. From the crisp white sheets to the fluffy towels, down comforters to snuggle into on the Colorado evenings, special interiors and lighting details, you will enjoy experiencing these spaces. The owners have hung art by local artists and added an eclectic mix of antiques and mid century modern professionally designed features. This property is in a truly excellent location, you can leave your car parked and enjoy the 2 block walk to the heart of Old Town Ft. Collins shops, restaurants, and museums as well as the easy access to Colorado State University. Our 'official walk score' is 85 out of 100, which means coffee shops are within .10 miles,restaurants .14, Civic Center Park .21 and the Old Town open air seasonal market on Saturdays. Our location is rated as a Bikers Paradise with a score of 100 due to the flat terrain and wonderful access to bike paths and lanes!!

- This unique luxury property is within steps to Old Town Fort Collins' restaurants, shops, museums, library, breweries, theaters and more. We strived to create a special environment to delight our guests with the backdrop of the charming historic Old Town Fort Collins character. The area has so many activities to offer and the host has provided an 'Insiders Guide' to Old Town giving an overview of favorite restaurants, shopping, music venues and the like. We are a short drive to Rocky Mountain National Park outside of Estes Park and the closer Horsetooth Reservior in the foothills. Fort Collins has extensive bike trails along the Poudre River as well as many natural areas within the city. ...moreless

This is a five minute walk or less to all of the above, if you want to leave your car behind and experience this delightful walkable community, you want to be located in Old Town!!

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: The owners are a husband and wife architect/interior designer/contractor team who have been involved in the adaptive re-use and re-development of many housing projects in the Old Town area for themselves as well as for their clients. They so enjoyed staying at a VRBO recently, upon their return they decided to feature one of their own in a very special property they renovated. They have been residents of Fort Collins for over 30 years and formerly faculty at Colorado State University.
Why the Owner Chose Old Town West, Fort Collins, CO, USA:
While hosting professors from abroad, it became apparent that there were not abundant choices for them to stay within close proximity to campus and in the spectacular Old Town area. This is truly a vacation setting/location! We have had guests return multiple times and we love to provide that special environment that they enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We Just Added WiFi for guest's convenience and are working on a DVD and CD library, cable TV is also offered. The property feels like a boutique hotel but with all the privacy of a home. The location is so convenient, one does not need a car, in fact, the best way to experience the area is to stroll through the tree-lined local streets and take in the unique character of Old Town Fort Collins' shops, 84 restaurants, open air markets and activities. Open up the french doors to the entry courtyard below to hear the church bells chime in this historic, charming neighborhood just two blocks from the Old Town's downtown center. Here are just a few comments from our guest book: 'The condo exceeded all my expectations. I absolutely loved it here' SJ 'This was the best decorated place we have stayed at, comfortable yet sophisticated.' Everyone who came over loved it and said they were unaware of such a great place in the best location. Thank you so much' AW 'Our favorite moment was walking in here and seeing how beautiful this place was! Thank you we hope to come again' TS ' I wish I had your decorating sense Susan, can you come to my house and help me?' SN
