Excellent short-term rental or live/work opportunity in this historic 1915 home with a garage/loft above Horsetooth Reservoir. Property is over a half acre and located directly across from Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. Operate your businesses from the garage, rent upstairs to another business/artist/etc, live in the home, rent the home as a short term rental – the options are endless! Garage/shop was built with 12′ walls that are 12″ thick – everything is over-engineered and designed to keep your client’s business or hobby organized and convenient. The included compressed air system is built into the walls and there are nozzles everywhere, both downstairs and upstairs, as well as on the front exterior. Radiant flooring on both levels of the garage provide heat – or use the pellet stoves on each level for an alternative. Both levels also have a half bath. The enormous 11.34kW solar system (installed in 2019 and owned, not leased) provides ample electricity for whatever hobbies you might dream up! The historic home was originally in Fort Collins and was moved up in one piece in the 1970s to rest on a full concrete basement on this beautiful lot. Nearly everything on the main level is original – plaster walls, kitchen cabinets, windows, hardwood floors, doors, etc. All plumbing and electrical has been replaced and improved over the years – so you get the quaintness of a historic home with modern conveniences. There is a room on the main level that could be used as a 4th bedroom or office – the current owners use it as their master closet. Larimer County Open Zoning allows for STR – buyer to verify uses and licensing.
