Perfect location for business with high visibility and easily accessible
from I-25 and Hwy 287, yet offers a serene and quiet residence in a park
like setting.

The landscaping is stunning and has been used by...

...professional photographers for photo shoots.

Hundreds of mature fruit and hardwood trees are scattered through out the grounds.

Seas of flower beds hold Lilies, Iris, Roses, Daises, Sweet Peas, and various
ornamental grasses offering breath-taking beauty.

Small out buildings give a sense of history and character, including the original rock
homestead built before Colorado gained statehood and currently used
as a tool shed.

An 80 yr. old wash house serves as a toy shed while an old cook house sits
under a large Black Walnut tree next to a fire pit.

The Home Supply Ditch borders the property on the west and backs to
Manzanita Estates, one of the most prestigious areas in Loveland. One of
a kind.

Must see to appreciate all this property has to offer.

THE CAT HOUSE is simply the finest feline boarding facility in the world.

The Cat House name and logo are registered trademarks. The cattery's
28 years of excellence creates an impeccable reputation with the large
client base and Vets from coast to coast. The prime location provides
easy access from major highways and roads. The custom building is
designed with feline happiness, ease of cleaning, and durability in mind.

Each of the fifty 20 sq. ft. suites has a window overlooking the grounds or
common areas, perches, and 8’-10’ ceilings. Adjoining rooms for
families, quiet rooms for those who enjoy privacy, and geriatric rooms are
also available. Singing birds, fish, and an interactive light show entertain
the guests.

The building features include; 2039 sq. ft., 50 suites, gas forced air heat,
evaporative cooling, washer, dryer, dishwasher, restroom, built in desk,
storage cabinets, security rooms at entrances, exterior patio, and top
quality vinyl flooring. All fixtures are included. The building and
mechanical systems are in excellent condition. Very profitable, well-run
business. Seller will provide consultation/training if needed.

THE MAIN RESIDENCE. This one of a kind, historic home dates back to
1870. It has been remodeled to provide all the modern conveniences, yet
retains its character and charm. Entry is through a large brick floored sun
room, ideal for a studio, hot tub, or indoor gardening. Accesses to the
upper floor are possible with a beautiful wood staircase or pass through
a large mudroom lined with a coat rack and cabinets to the kitchen. The
large kitchen has hard wood flooring, a breakfast bar, European
cabinets, hand painted tiles, and built in appliances including
dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, oven, cook top, microwave, and
trash receptacle.

The main level also includes a dining room, living room with gas log

paneling. Two bedrooms and a bath are also on the main level. A wood
staircase leads to the upper level.

2797 sq. ft.

Two income producing rental properties are also located on the estate.

Each is in excellent condition and have separate septic and electric.
Appliances are included. Vacancy rates are extremely low (< 1% for the
last 25 yrs.) due to condition and the park like setting. Income is 10-20%
higher than similar properties.

The 1937 sq. ft. duplex has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on each side. 4
parking places are available for each side. 2 wood decks and a large
cement patio surrounded by fences add outdoor living space.

foundation. Features include; living room/dining room with cathedral
ceilings, skylights, gas forced air furnace, evaporative cooling, 6” walls,
parking for 4 cars, access to 2 single car garages, and a private tree
lined drive.

Dodge is the centerpiece of the out buildings. It is 1000 sq. ft. with a
covered porch along 1/2 of the building, 10’ ceilings, very large sliding
doors, and lots of windows providing abundant light; making it an
extremely versatile building. It even has a kitchen; perfect for large
gatherings, parties, or just a comfortable place to enjoy the wonderful
Colorado climate. Dodge would also make an ideal workshop, four-car
garage, or storage building.
