Antique meets modern in this whimsical yet elegant restoration of one of Longmont’s original gems from the late 1800s, right across from beautiful Collyer Park. We endeavored to honor the feeling of the original house, while including all the modern amenities we’ve come to expect (you know, like heat that is actually ducted to each bedroom, and more than one outlet in each room). Everything is updated, on top of which we retained an element of peculiarity (saving some of the old wallpaper in closets, keeping some of the various light fixtures that have accrued to this house over the years) and added some of our own (using antique sewing machines, vertical concrete, exposed copper pipes, and moss rock to spruce up the bathrooms).
Original fir floors have been restored to match the original trim, moulding, and doors. New stain and paint throughout. Four bedrooms upstairs (one nonconforming, could be used as studio). Cute walkout deck in back bedroom.
The kitchen has been completely remodeled with cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a stainless farm sink.
Both bathrooms feature exposed copper piping, as well as stained concrete walls and floors. Sewing machine sinks and a sewing machine vanity light (with working lights on the antique sewing machines). A cascading waterfall fills the restored antique clawfoot tub in the upstairs bathroom.
500 SF of walkout basement has been finished with new windows, cherry cabinets, blue stain pine trim and built-ins, and some exposed brick walls. Could be used as a fifth bedroom, children’s play area, workout center, entertainment area, or side business.
All new wiring, plumbing, heating, furnace. Walls and attic have blown-in insulation. Walk-out basement includes frontload washer and dryer.
New fence encloses private backyard with mature trees. New exterior paint. Copper gutters in front and back with copper rain chains. 500+ SF detached 2-car garage has an attached screened-in patio, and sub-panel for potential workshop.
Low maintenance xeriscaping on the streetside plots, with some lush patches of green grass alongside the house and in the private backyard.
And did we mention this is in beautiful Old Town Longmont, one of the best places to live in the world! Just a short walk from Main Street and the Longmont Library. Collyer Park (one of Longmont’s original parks) is right across the street, with tennis (or pickle ball), sand volleyball, a playground, and plenty of majestic old trees. Yes, there are train tracks that run in front of this house, but most of us in the Historic Eastside Neighborhood have grown accustomed to it.
