You can own a piece of Longmont nostalgia with this gorgeous 1906 home, in the heart of Old Town Longmont.

This stunning home has been featured in multiple local newspaper articles over the years, and was the home of Longmont’s “Small Town Girl”, Pattie Ann Nelson, with a full spread featured in Life Magazine in 1948.

Homeowners Tricia and Jerry Boyle have lovingly maintained this home for the past 40 years. Over the years they have added an open family area, updated kitchen and additional dining and living space; all while keeping with the feel and aesthetics of the original home.

Upon entry, you are greeted by a sweeping staircase, and grand foyer; once used in a Goodyear Superbowl commercial! The warmth of the sitting room fireplace and the rich wood trim and floors carry the welcoming atmosphere throughout the main floor and make you feel like you are “home” the minute you cross the threshold.

A large, covered front porch and multiple private decks allow for time spent outside to enjoy the gorgeous, mature landscaping, and tranquil setting.

The Old Town Neighborhood feels removed from the everyday hustle and bustle. Here is a place where you can come home, pour your favorite libation, and sit in the cozy sitting room with a good book and a toasty fire. Or, escape to the treetops in the warmer months, on the secluded upstairs deck, located off of the primary bathroom; tucked in among giant shade trees, it is the perfect setting to unwind and escape after a long day.

This home has it all. All of the charm of a bygone era, with all of the modern conveniences desired by today’s homeowner; such as a spacious open kitchen with updated appliances, cherry cabinets and granite countertops, heated floors in the primary bath,16-Zone sprinkler and drip system to nourish the stunning landscaping, low-maintenance vinyl siding with a transferrable warranty, good until 2049, and a beautifully finished basement with workshop.

There is off-street parking with the option to add a garage if desired.

The home truly stands out above the rest. Its excellent condition and attention to detail, as well as the fact that the same homeowners have attended to every maintenance need over the past 40 years, creates a wonderful opportunity for a new homeowner to build their next chapter in Longmont’s most prestigious neighborhood.

Located just a few blocks from Downtown Longmont, it’s easy to walk or bike to coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping. Or, stroll a few blocks and enjoy Thompson or Roosevelt Parks; with their towering trees and renowned Memorial Rose Garden. Ice skate at Roosevelt Park in the winter, and enjoy live music and events in the warmer months.
