A HIDDEN EQUESTRIAN-INSPIRED GEM, DEEP IN THE HEART OF SUBURBIA, EAGERLY AWAITS ITS NEW OWNER

Tucked away amid one of Loveland’s sprawling subdivisions lies an unassuming treasure of a home. From the street, a charming gate opens with a dramatic pause, but that’s where the theatrics end—this house was made to be lived in.

“We wanted it to be warm and inviting,” the current owner says. “To use every part of it, feel comfortable in every room. No areas just for show.”

They succeeded.

Don’t be fooled by its size—at an impressive 9,000-plus square feet, it’s easy to think you’d feel overwhelmed or lost. Yet every space is functional and open, the floorplan a smart connection of hallways, room openings and staircases. It flows naturally, and you’re drawn with it.

The generous yet cozy kitchen and nook unfold multiple ways: down to a quiet three-season room, out to the oversized deck and into the main great room. There’s also a back staircase to the second floor with its four bedrooms and bonus family room.

The master suite resides on the first floor as well, complete with an enormous bath suite and dedicated reading corner, collectively offering views of the barn, pastures, pool and grotto—an invitation to relax that’s hard to ignore.

Downstairs is a family-fun dream come true: a theater room, an exercise room, a third family room and fireplace, a giant rec room perfect for a pool table. The most impressive part? The abundance of natural light. With 10-foot ceilings, oversized windows and walk-out access to the pool patio, the basement is bright and airy in a way that bucks the norm.

In fact, the entire home glows with natural light, while the finishing touches really make it shine. Built-in shelves, drawers and cabinets can be found at every turn—in rooms, corners, closets and hallways.

If you’re not sold yet, the missing piece is all outside. A saltwater pool, surrounded by stone features, fire pit and sitting spaces galore—it’s designed for entertainment and relaxation. And horse-centric highlights include two pastures, a working barn and a riding ring.

But it’s the home’s acreage that’s the most impressive—more than 5 acres, thickly encircled by a veritable forest of mature trees, with all the perks and presence of a tight-knit community.

“No other property came close to giving us the land we wanted, with a neighborhood feel,” the owner says. “The kids could ride their bikes around, we had neighborhood parties, a close community of families, but we still had land and privacy. You just can’t find that anywhere else.”

That privacy and peacefulness are tangible outside, whether from the deck, by the pool, on the covered porch or near the barn—water features and fountains in harmony with the surrounding nature. And yet you’re still just minutes from everything—schools, grocery stores, interstates, entertainment and more.

“I’ve raised my family here for the last 21 years … now it’s time for a new family to make it their home, too.”
