5 Ways to Spoil Your Dog in NoCO

  1. Eat brunch with your dog on the porch of The Rainbow (a Baci Favorite, he also recommends Tasty Harmony)
  2. Take your pup to an outdoor concert (Remy recommends Saturday concerts at Front Range Village)
  3. Go shopping together at a local Farmers Market (and buy treats of course).
  4. Take your dog swimming at City Park Pool’s annual Pooch Plunge in FoCo on August 27th, 2017
  5. Relax on a coffee shop or brewery porch with your pooch (Baci always votes Starbuck since they offer puppucinos aka. whipped cream).

Honorable mention: Take a walk and savor our fresh CO air!

New Listing: Better than New in Loveland!

I have a new listing on Wisconsin Ave in Loveland. The home was only built in 2012. While there are still some new construction homes going up in the area, there are definitely some great advantages to this home that the owners have loved living in for the past four years:

  1. That tangible feeling of “Home” when you step through the front door. You can feel when the owners have enjoyed the home. Call it good energy or a sense of how a family lives in a home, but no matter the age, it makes a difference.Dining B
  2. Full landscaping and landscaping that’s had a chance to mature. When you first plant your garden, everything looks tiny. Give a few years and it all begins to fit (give it a few more years and it might start looking overgrown, but that depends on how much attention you pay your garden).Yard B
  3. Little perks the homeowner has already added. The home was built with the covered patio out back, but the owners added a nice sun shield that stays with the home. Patio D

Casitas are Cool: Coachman Lane

I have a new listing in Clydesdale Park up in North Fort Collins. It’s truly a quality home, but the best part of the home is…the attached casita with ¾ bath & wet bar.
**A casita is a small guest home.

Now here’s why casitas are cool:

It gives you an excuse to create a cozy courtyard with separate entrances for everyone and a communal hangout space…Patio

Your guests get to sip coffee (and other beverages) at their private wet bar…
Casita Bath

Bonus: You can have this kitchen in the home to yourself…
Kitchen B

It’s great if you’ve ever had aspirations to run a hotel room for guests or have a college age kid complaining about needing their own space (15 min to CSU)….

And, best of all, it’s still steps to your home for those epic family movie nights….

Golden Eagle: Art Meets Architecture

“Not everybody understands vignette layout…it’s not for everyone, but the truth is everyone loves it once they’ve had it.” – Robert Smith, custom builder

Walking into our new listing at Golden Eagle Drive is like walking into a piece of artwork. Details abound around every corner and on every surface (look for the leather insets on the stair posts and glass sink in the powder room).

The house is different layout from today’s popular open concept plans. Need a break from the kids? Let them watch movies in the family roomLiving Room 1
…while you cozy into the living room with book.
Living Room 4
Need your own space? Pick between the loft office (also makes a great guest room/6th bedroom/classroom) with it’s own entrance…
Upstairs Office
Or the dream closet with washer and dryer…
Upstairs Master Bedroom Closet
Ready for some outdoor time? Listen to the rushing waterfall feature while watching the koi swim…
Back 3
Or if you’re feeling active, walk out the back door to the neighborhood tennis court (it’s almost like having a private tennis court)…
Deck A
And who wouldn’t love having a split 5-car garage?
