By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with New Paradigm Partners LLC EB #1326335

Looking back on last year, it's always interesting and fun to take a look at the extremes for size and price in our Fort Collins real estate market. Here are the homes that set the limits for 2014:

 

Most Expensive

6343 Rookery Rd. Fort Collins CO

Topping the list was 6343 Rookery Rd., located in the very desirable Fossil Lake neighborhood in Fort Collins. It sold for an even $2,000,000. This gorgeous 10,375 sq.ft. 2 story home offered 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, a 4-car garage, with lots of extras and high-end finishes, and water and mountain views, on .85 acres.

 

Least Expensive

468 Elk Horn Trail Bellvue CO

Setting aside mobile, manufactured and modular homes, the least expensive home sold in the Fort Collins area was 468 Elk Horn Trail in Bellvue, which closed for $97,500. This 1,296 sq.ft. cabin located in Buckhorn Canyon, sits on 4 acres of wooded land. It isn't quite finished, and has 2 bedrooms, no bath and no utilities at the present time.

 

Largest

200 Gregory Rd. Fort Collins CO

The biggest home sold last year was 200 Gregory Rd. in Fort Collins, topping the charts at a whopping 13,199 sq.ft. This historic home began life as a renovated cherry mill, but had fallen on hard times, needed substantial repair, and sold as a foreclosure for $640,000. It sits on 6.2 acres, has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, and a barn & indoor arena.

 

Smallest

 508 S Overland Trail Fort Collins CO

The smallest home to sell last year in Fort Collins was 508 S Overland Trail. This 1 bedroom 1 bath bungalow measures just 400 sq.ft. and sits on a 3,359 sq.ft. lot. It has been used as a rental property for the last 10 years, has a 1-car garage and views of the foothills. It sold for $110,000.

Hey that's pretty cool.  That first one looks like a sprawling mansion.  I could see Erin living in the bungalow.

Oh my.  That beautiful home on Rookery Road is one I would love to own.

I love the style, the materials, the scenery and everything about it.

I certainly appreciate this creative market report on the extreme homes that sold in Fort Collins last year. FYI,  I could force myself to live in the home located in the Fossil Lake neighborhood. It might be tough, but I'm up for the task.

Dick I look at all those properties and even though most would think the larger properties would have been the toughest to get financing for, I would say the smallest one probably presented the biggest challenge.

That's a cute little cabin for $97K. You won't find anything that nice here for that kind of money.

Hi Dick - this is an  interesting way to look at real estate in Fort Collins.  Not just as a lookie-loo/voyeur but to get an idea of value even though most of the sales occur outside the extremes.

My favorite, to my own surprise, was the largest....with lots of acreage, and the fact that it was a former mill would have added to its charm for me, Dick.

Thanks for a tour of Fort Collins extreme homes, Dick Greenberg!

400 sq ft???

That had to be a cash deal wasnt it? I think it may be too small for most financing but then again there always seems to be someone for everything
