Off The Grid Style Living in Masonville
This is a beautiful stucco (Santa Fe Style) home on 14.2 acres in the Buckskin Heights subdivision. Stucco buildings have been around far longer than you think. They originated in ancient times with Greek and Roman cultures that created stucco surfaces to paint beautiful frescoes. During the Age of Renaissance, stucco techniques were honed by the Italians and spread throughout Europe becoming one of the most common building materials. Historians believe the material became so popular because it is fairly inexpensive. Stucco is also better at withstanding bad weather than any other material.
Why I love this home:
1.) Off the grid style living – There is nothing better than being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. As our community grows, it is increasingly important to “get off the grid.” This home is 45 minutes from Downtown Loveland and Downtown Fort Collins, which makes for a perfect cabin getaway.
2.) Spacious front porch – The front porch faces southwest, which allows for the most beautiful sunset views over the mountains. *Bonus* There is a walk out deck off of the Master Bedroom that faces north for one more beautiful outdoor oasis.
3.) Open floor plan & natural light – The open floor plan and built in skylights allow for gorgeous natural lighting.
