OLD WORLD FARMHOUSE
This true gem of a property invites long stays hanging out on the oversized wrap-around front porch, or retreating to the small deck off of the family room, both of which are extensions of the main living room.
After many years out of state it was time to come home to Colorado to be around aging parents, grandchildren on the way, and to just enjoy the beautiful countryside of northern Fort Collins. Situated on 40 acres with unlimited views in all directions and inspired by old world farmhouse design with plenty of room for family and grandchildren who live next door. This true gem of a property invites long stays hanging out on the oversized wrap-around front porch, or retreating to the small deck off of the family room, both of which are extensions of the main living room.
The property, when purchased, was run down and the small existing house needed to go, but the barns provide plenty of space for hay, farm equipment and all of the other necessities needed for a gentleman’s farm in the years to come. A greenhouse is in the works that will provide food during the winter months and enrichment opportunities for grandchildren to learn and experience, through their grandparents, the miracle of growing and harvesting food.
The floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace surround anchors the main floor kitchen and family room. Design highlights include white oak flooring, quartz countertops, slick finish drywall, cabinets via Milarc Cabinets and wallpaper accents. The main floor master suite, with a zero-threshold shower, will allow for aging in place as the years progress, and no need to leave the property to exercise, as the dedicated gym area on the lower level makes for a complete home.
