About the Property

2 bedroom+/ 1 bath, sleeps 4, Entire house, 1 level, private, new furnishings

Only 5 blocks east of CSU, and a half-mile to Old Town Fort Collins, but in a very quiet & tucked away residential neighborhood with low traffic. Close to the new MAX bus system opening in May 2014, and near shopping, restaurants, Old Town, and Fort Collins tourist attrctions. This brick ranch home was built in 1946 and was recently totally remodeled to maintain the charm of the era with modern conveniences. We now have Central Air Conditioning for comfort from summer heat! Hardwood floors in the living and kitchen areas, carpeting in the bedrooms and tile in the bathroom with an all-new kitchen make it a new house in a vintage feel. Every room has a good-sized window (or 2), and all the house is on one-level.

Bedroom 1 has a queen bed with a memory-foam mattress and a Flat Screen TV (the other TV is in the Living area)
Bedroom 2 has a fold-down futon with a desk area
The bathroom has a shower only (no tub) along with a pedestal sink and toilet. The house has a new Instant Hot Water heater so you'll never have to wait for hot water.

The living area and eating areas are joined and have a comfy sitting area to watch the large flat-screen TV (upgraded cable). WI-FI internet is included.

The kitchen is clean, open and easy to work in. Microwave, full stove, full refrigerator, dishwasher, Keurig coffee maker, all plates and preparation utensils included.

There is a full-sized washer & full-sized dryer in the house. There is also a 1 car attached garage with an opener.

The backyard is fully-fenced and private with large trees and abundant small wildlife like squirrels, raccoons, birds and even fox. There is a sitting patio in the back with a gas grill and picnic table, and a small porch with a bench in the front. All great for relaxing at the beginning or end of a busy day!

An automatic sprinkler system was installed in 2013 along with landscaping for efficient water use.

Centrally located and close to so many employers and attractions--Colorado State University, Colorado State Veterinary Hospital, Poudre Valley Hospital, Old Town, Otterbox, Dept of Natural Resources, New Woodward Governor site, and only 3 blocks to CSU University Center for Fine Arts and the flower gardens.

The home is non-smoking only. No 420 or MMJ. Minimum age for renting is 25 years old (children of renters exempt of course). Valid photo ID required for check-in and must match name on booking. No subletting, no large parties. Our house is small and not equipped for large groups.

As a general rule, we prefer no dogs, but we are dog-owners and lovers ourselves so we will consider a well-mannered dog or two with an interview in advance, and additional fee and deposit. Sorry, no cats or any other caged animals. If your dog meets our guidelines, there is a wonderful official fenced dog park only 2 blocks away for exercise and socializing. However, our fenced backyard is great for exercising too.

Car: Recommended

Close to Colorado State University with a central Fort Collins, CO location. Quiet, low-traffic residential neighborhood, great for biking, walking and easy access to main streets. Approx 4 blocks to the new MAX bus system (opening May 2014). The location is NOT close to busy and often noisy apartment complexes.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We have lived in Fort Collins for 29 years and love it! Hewlett Packard brought us here after college graduation in the Midwest. We've raised our children here, and think Fort Collins is a wonderful place to live and visit!

Why the Owner Chose Historic Fort Collins High School, Fort Collins, CO, USA:
This house was purchased as a rental property for family, and two of our children have lived in it previously. It has been so comfortable and we all have fond memories there. It has the best of everything and location, location, location!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is so close to all the action, yet the neighborhood is so quiet. Easy access to main roads. Prospect and College Ave are the closest cross-streets.
