What you will love about this home
We have 2000 sq/ft house including finished basement. The house is split level with lots of open space. We have 3 bedrooms and a finished basement as a play/art area for the kids. The kids' bedrooms have fun beds (a club-house and a loft with slide and play area underneath). We often convert the basement into another sleeping area with queen bed for company. If you have older kids or more adults than the master bedroom will hold and don't want to sleep in a loft and/or clubhouse we can get the basement ready as a sleeping area with dedicated shower and bathroom.
We have a large fenced backyard, covered back patio, outside 6x8 fenced kennel, play areas for the kids, and even a nesting red-tail hawk pair living in one of our trees.
Thanks to the city of Longmont we have 1,000 Mbps internet (yes - 1 gig!)
What you will love in the neighborhood
We live in a quiet, residential neighborhood within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and parks. We often bike over to the park to enjoy the water features, soccer fields, playground, skateboard park, bmx track, basketball courts, and dog park. Easy access to bike paths, golf course, and rec center. Our home is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with very little traffic making it a great spot to rollerblade, ride bikes, and play catch.
The City owned Union Reservoir is a few minutes away offering picnicking, fishing & a dog beach, plus a sailing club.
Longmont is a great town with lots of restaurants and breweries. They have a weekly family bike ride on Wednesdays during the summer, farmers market, lots of music, beer and downtown festivals, 2 live theaters, recreation centers, bike paths, museum, multiple golf courses, and open spaces.
Outside of Longmont lots of towns and activities are easily accessible. Boulder, Ft. Collins, Denver, Denver International Airport, and Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park are all within 45 minutes. Colorado Springs is 90 miles.
The mountains are not far and offer hiking, trail running, fishing, camping, horseback riding, mountain biking, downhill biking, and rafting/kayaking/tubing.
Hiking can be as easy as a stroll around Lily Lake, or to the top of Longmont's namesake Long's Peak in RMNP at 14,000 feet. Many of the trails and open spaces are open to dogs (and horses) as well.
