This beautiful stucco home looks like it should be in Arizona or New Mexico, but the modern beauty is located right here in Fort Collins, Colorado...and its past owner is a part of Fort Collins history himself.

After seeing a photo of the at-home bar on the listing, I noticed something interesting: The massive sign reading 'Bouckaert' behind the counter. When I was working at New Belgium Brewing Company, Peter Bouckaert was cited as the reason sour beer was introduced to the states (confirmed by The Coloradoan), and as the creator of the classic sour, La Folie. Bouckaert served as the brewmaster at New Belgium for 21 years and then left to start Purpose Brewing...

Yes, this is his former home.

Located on Vista Lake Drive, the home is a stunning and modern lakefront property that has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and stretches over 4,792 square feet. It's a water-lover's dream, since you can enjoy recreational activities on the lake or just hang out on the walk-out basement that features a custom bar (because of course it does). 

This home is classic Fort Collins living, featuring colorful built-ins, space to enjoy the outdoors, and plenty of room at the bar for all your friends. Check out the gallery below for photos of the home, provided by Leone Coryell of Group Mulberry on Zillow.
