About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Home In Old Town's Best Neighborhood

Located on a quiet residential street with ample parking, this Old Town home is just steps from picturesque Mountain Avenue. Even though it’s an easy stroll to historic Old Town Square or City Park, you might want to catch the restored turn-of-the century trolley at the Mountain Avenue stop close by. Trolley not running that day? – take the two cruiser bikes provided to our guests (locks and helmets included) and spend the day enjoying one of America’s top bike-friendly cities. No need for a car for groceries – it’s an easy walk to the oldest family-owned food market in Fort Collins, featuring many locally produced foods and a farmers’ market every Wednesday during growing season.
This immaculate, upscale two-bedroom home is furnished with the crisp, clean lines of mid-century modern design that perfectly complements the original architectural details of the period. The polished wood floors show off the thoughtfully selected furnishings that combine to transport you to the days of martinis and mohair suits. The entire house is filled with natural light and has an open, airy feel. With wood floors, wool area rug, and plenty of seating, the living room is a comfortable place for conversation or watching a movie. This home is fully furnished; all you need to bring is a tooth brush! The dining area seats up to six and the kitchen is fully equipped for making everything from a cup of coffee to a family dinner. Both bedrooms have wood floors with high quality wool area rugs, queen beds with luxurious linens and cozy comforters, dressers and closets. Ample counter space and storage in the bathroom make things easy with a full house. There is a full tub/shower with glass doors, and soft, thick hand and bath towels. Also included are a washer and dryer, high-speed internet, cable TV with HBO, flat screen TV, DVD player, iPod player/radio, two bikes, backyard patio and gas grill.

Car: Not Necessary

This location is in an established, very quiet neighborhood and within easy walking distance (or even shorter bike ride) to many of the activities that led Money Magazine to name Fort Collins the best place to live in the country! Step out your door and head downtown on Mountain Avenue (take the trolley just for fun!) and enjoy Old Town Square, retail shops, microbreweries, Discovery Museum, art galleries, coffee houses, boutique restaurants, farmers market, Civic Center Park music venue, the historic Avery House, and more. Head the other way and find City Park, tennis courts, playgrounds, Sheldon Lake, City Park Pool, Beaver’s Market, and City Park Nine golf course. Also close by are Colorado State University, a working farm at Lee Martinez Park, and the Poudre River trail. The owners are long time locals that live in the neighborhood and are happy to give you ‘insider’ advice on how to get the most from your stay in Fort Collins.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are professionals who have lived in the Old Town area for nearly 30 years. This is the house where we first met twenty years ago. When it came up for sale, we couldn’t help but acquire part of our own personal history. We live just two blocks away and are always available to give you a local perspective on all the Fort Collins area has to offer. We offer this beautiful mid-century gem as your home away from home during your stay.

Why the Owner Chose Old Town West, Ft Collins, Colorado, USA:
Although we currently live in a restored 100+ year old house, being design professionals, we have always been drawn to the crisp, clean esthetic of mid-century modern design. This home is in pristine condition, close to the best of everything Fort Collins has to offer, and is in the friendliest neighborhood in town - ours! Even if you stay just a few days, you'll know why we chose this area to put down roots.
