One of the Oldest Homes in Longmont is For Sale
As someone who's obsessed with watching shows like 'House Hunters' on HGTV, it seems like a majority of home buyers on the hunt are looking for things like open floor plans, stainless steel appliances, and modern upgrades. These things are all super appealing, however there's something about older homes that make them just as alluring too. Houses built in the 19th and 20th century not only have tons of character, they've also proven to have stood the test of time.
Currently on the market, is one of the oldest and first-built homes in Longmont. Dating back to 1884, the William Butler House is located at 255 Pratt Street, and was built by former resident, William Butler himself. William Butler was a Colorado pioneer of 1859 and a Civil War veteran.
The two-story home features Victorian architecture and is built on an expansive lot that partially backs up to Old Mill Park. The yard is filled with lush landscaping, including plum, apple, pear, Japanese maple & mulberry trees, plus grapes, raspberry & blackberry bushes.
Inside the home are six spacious bedrooms, beautiful wooden floors, soaring ceilings, and original period details in many of the rooms. Although it has a relatively high price tag (listed currently at $745,000), the charming 3,630-square-foot house could be a great fixer upper.
