5 Bedroom Home in Greeley
Own a piece of Weld County History! This historic gem was built
by Claus "Claude" Wolfgang Von Trotha and his wife Helene and was
known as "The Von Trotha Mansion." Although, hardly a mansion by
today’s standards, it was considered the cream of the crop in the 1800's :) The
home is eligible to be added to the National Register of Historic Places. This
is a history buff and hunter's dream! It sits on 15.36 acres with 2 year-round
fishing ponds and backs right up to the Poudre River. It is zoned AG so the
property taxes are low (2013: $890) This also means that you are allowed to
hunt on the property or even lease out the land during hunting season for extra
income. We currently lease the land to farmers to run cattle during the spring
and summer months then we hunt during the winter months. There are geese,
ducks, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, deer, and all manner of wildlife! The back 13
acres (estimate) are full of trees and seasonal water and are entirely fenced
by electric fence, ready for your cows, horses, etc. PRIVACY abounds! The home
sits at the end of a 1000 foot private drive and is accessed by only 3 homes.
All of us purchased our homes for the privacy and peaceful seclusion to be
surrounded by nature, so at this time I am asking for no "drive-bys."
We have preserved many of the beautiful Victorian era details, while adding
many modern conveniences. Crown moulding in nearly every room, original
hardwood floors, new paint job, new professional landscaping job and new roof!
