A mere 2 miles from the base area of the Crested Butte world-class resort and just steps away from Elk Avenue entertainment, shopping and dining venues, and galleries. This residence encompassing 7,500+ sq. ft. of heated interior space is incomparable for its intrinsic values of size, location, nature and quality of construction, and the fact it cannot be replicated. Enjoy year-round views from what is unquestionably the best location in Downtown, especially from its 1,800 sq. ft. furnished 4th level viewing deck with a large BBQ area that’s perfect for family gatherings, parties or intimate entertaining. You’ll enjoy great views of Mount Crested Butte, Gothic Mountain, and the Paradise Divide no matter the time of year.

There are endless possibilities.
With six en suite bedrooms, 2 powder rooms, plus guest spa with hot tub for six adults and second steam shower, 3-car attached heated garage, both formal and informal living spaces, open floor plan, separate living and dining areas, 1,000 bottle wine cellar, billiards room, and media/game room, there is plenty of space for additional guests and family without lack of privacy or comfort. Construction of the home is unparalleled steel, log and 8′ steel reinforced concrete with walls 12” thick making it one of the most solidly constructed and finely finished homes in the area, if not the only. A host of additional features complement the home’s interior. A beautiful large kitchen, butler’s pantry/bar, and all horizontal surfaces are marble and granite. You’ll notice the hand-molded finishes, trim and custom-made solid oak cabinetry throughout the home as well as both custom ceramic tiling and hardwood flooring, beaded board and some 120-year-old wainscoting. The master bedroom and bath capture North and South facing views and offer a master bathroom not to disappoint, including his and her sinks, her makeup/dressing area, a comfortable 2 person jetted tub, steam shower, and private toilet /bidet room. There are very large his and her closets, plus additional seasonal closets and overflow storage. The 3rd-floor master bedroom and the neighboring office is designed to overlook, through the glass, the formal living area and captures views of Gothic Mountain, and also includes a skylight strategically placed to capture a direct view of Mount Crested Butte.
The home includes a concrete 3-story elevator shaft from 1st to 4th floors that could host a full-service elevator for increased convenience. Step outside the large 1st-floor mudroom with ski and other storage, and you will find an enclosed, 65 ft. long covered walkway providing access to both 2nd and 4th level decks with lockable storage for all needs, including bikes, gardening equipment, and seasonal toys, plus the bear-proof trash room with chute from the kitchen. The 7,500+ square feet of heated space includes the heated garage and one of the long term suites with its own private entry that could be converted to a larger “master-like” suite. There is a backup gas furnace in the large mechanical room providing heating for the entire home, which is an overall, very heat/fuel efficient property given design and construction. Other details include 2 wet bars, central vacuum system, large concrete safe, large laundry room, and versatility with space/design throughout. No stone is left unturned.
The 2 first floor en suite bedrooms with outside private entries are currently long term rentals that generate income that covers all utilities, taxes and insurance costs of +/- $20,000 annually.
