Property description

Beautiful custom built artisan home available all year. Close to town and private on 4 acres with a creek running through the property. Separate hand built cord wood sauna, (holds up to 12 people) and two car garage. The house has privacy, comfort, is solar, warm and lovely. Suitable for groups wanting to enjoy the winter life up here in the San Juan Mountains.

My home is also a perfect for retreat for writers, poets or those seeking solitude, peace and the wilderness right out the door.

A local catering service is available for meals, shopping, airport pick up, and any other needs you might have.

Silverton Mountain

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
