If you are looking for a tract home, this is not your home. If you are looking to live in a home just like your friends, this won't be your style. If you are looking for a 5,000 square foot lot with two trees in the front and one in the back you will not appreciate the uncommon size and mature landscaping of this unique home. On the other hand, if you are tired of looking at the same old house, one street after another, this house might be for you. If you are looking for a little elbow room and having 1.2 acres of possibilities right in the city of Longmont sounds appealing, you will appreciate this property. If you need more room than the standard two car garage and dream of a FOUR car garage, you will love this house. If you have been looking for a house for awhile and nothing seems to fit, this might be the one. This is definitely not like any house you have ever seen. It was originally built as a farmhouse for the Fowler family back in 1952 and has been passed within the family ever since. This is the first time this house has been on the market in its history. When it was built there was nothing around. Just open pastureland between Longmont and Hygiene. In the sixty years since Longmont has grown and enveloped the farm but the house and 1.22 acres remain. It is still a tucked away and special spot. The house itself is not your typical farmhouse. It was designed by Mr. Robert Ditzen who used the principles made popular by Frank Lloyd Wright to design his home. They chose a modern design that was characterized by high ceilings, a connection with the outside environment through walls of windows and wide open rooms filled with light. This style is now called Mid Century Modern and this type of design is showcased in Arapahoe Acres in Denver. Arapahoe Acres is the first Mid Century Modern neighborhood in the country to get Historic District Designation for its architectural style. http://www.arapahoeacres.org/

Neil, You write so well. I'm so impressed with this property being offered for the sale for the first time in the family's History. They must hate to part with such a family heirloom. So much History.  Imagine that, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright designed this masterpiece. What a treat to be able to market this home.
