Old Town Fort Collins CO

If you're looking for charm, tradition, convenience and fun in your next home, you can't do better than Old Town Fort Collins, CO Real Estate. Here, you will find homes with timeless designs and unique features, attached to a lifestyle based around the best that Fort Collins has to offer.

Old Town Fort Collins CO

Old Town is a loosely defined area that centers on the Fort Collins historic downtown, a well-preserved and renovated district that today offers over 125 shops, 85 restaurants (many with outdoor eating areas), free concerts, museum and gallery walks, and live entertainment. No longer the main commercial center of the city, Old Town is where Fort Collins goes to have fun.

Stretching both east and west from the center, the city's older residential districts have become a showplace for residential restoration. Homes dating from the early 1900's have been lovingly restored, and a trip down Mountain Avenue can seem like a visit to past times. During the summer months, there's even a trolley that goes between Old Town Square and City Park.

Old Town Fort Collins, CO Real Estate has become a very desirable location for home buyers - the homes are architecturally unique and often provide a level of craftsmanship no longer available. Large lots, mature landscaping and carefully-tended gardens create an elegant setting. The sense of community is strong. And best of all, an Old Town location offers a short but lovely walk along tree-lined streets to everything that is happening downtown.

The good news is that there are many choices available, including homes that have already been restored and homes that are waiting for the care and attention their potential deserves. Prices range from the high $100,000s all the way up to the $900,000s - something for everyone's taste and pocketbook.

If you find these kinds of lifestyle features attractive, we'd be excited to help you explore the options available for Old Town Fort Collins CO Real Estate.
