I'm am finally moving to a new house next week and over the past few months I've set foot in dozens of homes while  on my search for a new one. I saw good ones, bad ones, and homes I could never dream of owning. And, just for kicks, I did a few searches for the most expensive properties around here. Read on to see the five most expensive homes for sale, right now, in the Fort Collins area (according to Realtor.com).

Or, as I call it, the top five homes I will never own.

    200 Gregory Road in Fort Collins

    $2,995,000

    I'm not sure the picture on this home description exactly does it justice. It's over 11,000 square feet, with 6 bedrooms and 6 baths, on nearly 6-acres and it has it's own barn...er, excuse me, its own "arena". It has a handful of ponds that look like a botanical garden, a dance studio, lofting sheds and a pasture. Coming in at just under 3-million dollars this is the most expensive home for sale in the area right now. Hey, all I need now is a bank that will give me a 2,500-year loan and I'm in!

    4557 Roaring Fork Court in Loveland

    $2,500,000

    I'm pretty sure my yearly salary couldn't even pay for the light fixtures in the entry of this home. This lakeside beauty is over 11,000 square feet on nearly an acre-and-a-half of land. 5 bedrooms, 8 baths and an interior that looks like it should be part of a royal palace of some kind. This is the kind of house I put on my list when I think, "Let's go look at all the nice things we can't afford in a house." Wow.

    13520 County Road 72 in Eaton

    $2,500,000

    I wasn't expecting a home in Eaton to make this list, but at 2.5 million dollars this becomes tied for the 2nd most expensive house for sale right now. 4 beds, 4 baths, just under 4,000 square feet...that doesn't sound all that luxurious. But, it does come with 149 acres of land. Meaning I would need 1,490 of my current properties to fill up the land for sale here. All I can say is that I would NOT want to mow this yard.

    2225 Rock Castle Lane in Fort Collins

    $2,499,000

    6,000+ square feet, 12 acres, 5 bedrooms, 7 baths all nestled alongside a private pool and a private tennis court. This home is as old as I am, but would still give Barbie's dream house a run for it's money if it were real.

    1257 Eagle Court in Windsor

    Price reduced to $2,495,000

    12,000+ square feet, 2.5+ acres, 6 garages, 7 bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms. Wait...12 bathrooms?! I guess a castle needs it's throne, but a dozen of them, really?! I could comfortably fit 4 of my current homes inside this one. That's big.
