Whenever House Crazy Sarah misses Colorado (where she lived for nearly 20 years), she goes house hunting in her old ‘hoods!
She found this charming Victorian-era home in Old Colorado City, where she once lived for a couple of years.
This little cutie is listed for a whopping $425,000 – prices sure have gone up since House Crazy Sarah lived in this area!
But it is actually bigger than it appears from the front, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1,519 square feet.
The Living Room
The decor is pitch-perfect for this quaint home.
The sunlight coming through those big old windows is fabulous! House Crazy Sarah was once told that Colorado gets more days of sunshine than even California does. Not sure if that’s true, but it truly is a bright, sunny place to live.
The Master Bedroom
The master bedroom enjoys even more sunshine with the south-facing bay windows.
Be still our vintage cabinet-loving hearts!
And check out the adorable breakfast nook…
This house is a charmer, and is definitely well-loved.
Oh! That curved bathtub nook!
The second bathroom has a dainty clawfoot soaking tub:
A great patio space that you can enjoy for most of the year, thanks to the great climate in this area of Colorado.
The neighborhood where this lovely home is located is called Old Colorado City – now a suburb of Colorado Springs that was once a stand-alone town dating back to the gold rush era.
In fact, Old Colorado City was the original capital of Colorado before Denver stole that prize!
