Activities & Amenities
Built like a fortress in 1933 (Assessor records say 1936), this historic home, central to the front range sits on 2.6 acres of land in Weld County, Colorado and would tell some stories if walls could talk. Speaking of walls, perhaps their unexpected 3 layers of brick thickness might trigger some wonder; if not, the uniquely mysterious window inside the front coat closet should. A long-abandoned vault in the basement surely once held intriguing objects; what other secrets might yet be undiscovered? Lovingly renovated, updated, and restored, this three bedroom, one-and-a-half bath country home retains many original historic attributes. Inside, you’ll discover antique features such as door knobs, light fixtures, original oak floors, and hand-hammered wrought iron railings—lending themselves to the unexpected tudor style flair of this home. Your own piece of history.
Blending the old and the new, you’ll find a beautifully remodeled kitchen dressed in solid hickory cabinetry featuring soft-close drawers and doors, pull out shelving, and under-cabinet lighting. A travertine backsplash compliments the granite countertops throughout. Whether you find yourself cooking a gourmet meal or pouring a mug of hot chocolate in the wintertime, you’ll enjoy the heated flooring and new appliances. On the upper level, 3 bedrooms reveal the architectural charm of this unique brick home. The fully remodeled bathroom includes a spacious walk-in shower and heated tile floor. Unlike many historic homes, you’ll find all of the hard work already done for you here, including: a whole house fan, fully updated electrical and plumbing, recently installed 60-gallon hot water heater, water softening system, and an RO system for the refrigerator water and ice.
After admiring the extensive interior renovations, step outside and you’ll see that the home is topped with a new roof, gutters, and reflects light from fiberglass windows installed in July of 2019. Monolithic-poured, stamped-concrete porches support your comings and goings at both the back and front doors of the home. A pipe fence surrounds the entire property, and the landscaped yard is cross-fenced. With an upgraded 400 amps of electrical power running to the property, you’ll appreciate the commercial-rated electric gate providing an extra dose of security and convenience as you enjoy the outdoor spaces included in this special find.
Moving along to the outbuildings, you’ll discover an insulated, five stall horse barn and hay storage area. Humans won’t have all the upgrades to themselves—this updated horse barn boasts all new metal, new windows, 100 Amp electrical, and an additional pipe-fenced pen with insulated shelter. New water lines run conveniently from the house to the barn, including two frost-free hydrants located in the front and north sides of the yard. A new well pump was installed in November of 2019, and septic isn’t a concern with a new system and leach field installed in the fall of 2014. Near the horse barn sits a newly built 45 x 48 foot insulated shop featuring its own 200 Amp electrical service, two 10 x 10 foot doors, and an additional 12 x 10 foot door with a six inch concrete floor. The third outbuilding, originally the caretaker's house, was re-sided and re-roofed in the spring of 2019 and a new manual garage door was added to complete its transformation. In addition to the outbuildings, a large turnout/riding arena is situated at the front of the property.
The unmatched charm and character of this historic brick home paired with the ideal horse and large animal set up, makes your dream ranchette come to life. Close to the airport and entertainment of Denver, this home's location allows you and your family the best of both worlds. Move in ready for you and your animals, a cozy historic home with these kinds of upgrades is not easily found. Cherished by the current owners, you will see that the property and home have been more than well taken care of and renovated. Call Ryan Crete for a private tour today.
