Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Wes calls Colorado home and his wife Gerti grew up in Germany, where the two met, although their work with the evangelical church has taken them to Mexico, Germany, as well as 16 years in Lyons, France. They speak these languages! They have two grown adopted sons, one from Mexico and the other from Jamaica. A true united nations family! Wes still works with the church, but his hobby is bluegrass music and his band, Rusty 44, can be heard playing locally in microbreweries, music venues, private parties and churches. Gerti works at the local Mouco Cheese Co. You should really try some of their delicious camembert creations while visiting Ft. Collins, and if you let her know ahead of time, you may just find a sample of this cheese waiting for you in the fridge!

Why the Owner Chose Waterglen, Fort Collins, CO, USA:
What we love about Ft. Collins is its variety of experiences while still being a relatively small and homey town. The university brings a certain buzz of activity to the area, but the townhome's location on the edge of the city guarantees a peaceful night's sleep and views of the Front Range. It's less than 10 minutes to the heart of the Old Town restaurants, microbreweries, theatres and shopping. The university is just another two minutes further away. Another attractive feature of this area is the Poudre River Canyon nearby the city, which boasts many great hiking trails, rafting possibilities and camping in the Rocky Mountains. Horsetooth Reservoir sits nestled in the foothills above the town and is a great place to boat, fish, cycle and swim. Popular Estes Park is only an hour's drive up Hi-34 out of Loveland. There is also great outlet mall shopping just 15 minutes south of the home on I-25. It's one hour door to door to Denver International Airport. Lastly, we are close to the new oilfield exploration in neighboring Weld County, making access to job sites there effortless.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
If you are without a car, a bus stop 100 yards from the townhome takes you into Ft. Collins Old Town.
