                      Car: Recommended

                      Silverton is located in the heart of the lower San Juan Mt range. It is incredibly pristine and some what remote. I cannot think of a more beautiful place anywhere in the world and I have traveled extensively. There is everything that you might imagine in the area surrounding Silverton inclusive of historic and outdoor venues that would take years to explore. The historic Durango - Silverton train is a main draw in the summer and Silverton Mt. Ski area in the winter.

                      Other Activities: Mt climbing, hiking, birding, flowers, river running, kayaking

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Artist, designer, world traveler, mom and foodie

                      Why the Owner Chose Silverton:
                      I designed and built this house. It was a dream, an epic adventure, now a reality.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It is a peaceful and magical retreat.
