Cripple Creek house description

Want a truly unique experience? This new home was built from a 200 year old oak barn. The strength, warmth and beauty of this 2000sq ft home is accented by local artists details throughout. We thought of your comfort and relaxation in everything we built into this home. The roomy open loft bedroom has two areas with a comfy queen bed in each. Enjoy the locally, handmade soaps while you relax in the large roman tub or the oversized shower.

Quiet and serene, the house sits alone in a meadow, atop a hill, with breathtaking views of 2 mountain ranges. Besides the 8 acres it sits on, it has acres of open land next to it to hike and enjoy the wildlife and beauty but is only 3 miles from town.

The furniture was chosen for comfort. The kind of couches and bed you can just sink into. You could also go through the antique, arched doors to the library, sit on the large window seat and read your favorite book or choose one of ours.

You may catch a peek at our local wildlife coming to get a cool drink.

Just sit and enjoy and let us at the Barn Escape make your visit a lifetime memory!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About the owner: I always lived on a farm in the Midwest and one day I came home and told my son ' We can move anywhere.' Colorado is where we ended up. My Dad and I always talked about turning a barn into a home. He passed away so my 2 sons and I did it! I did all of the building from floor, utilities, copper counter top and framing, keeping in mind, I just want to make people forget the rest of the world. To have them come, make them smile and just feel what this building has to offer. There is just something about it. I now work as a Respiratory Therapist in Colorado Springs. My 3 kids are scattered with my son in Denver. My husband and I love to travel. I am always driving him crazy saying ooh that would look great in the barn!

          Why the Owner Chose Cripple Creek:
          We looked for 3 years until we found this perfect spot to put our barn. The views were the main reason we chose this property. It is secluded but is only 3 miles from town and an area that gives abundant things to do and see. With open land adjoining it allows you to hike the mountains and streams to your hearts content, then hop into town for a nice meal!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Along with hiking out the back door, Cripple Creek is 4 miles away with shopping, casinos, live theater, restaurants and history museums of the rich mining boom. Pan for gold or travel hundreds of feet underground at the Mollie Kathleen working gold mine. Enjoy water sports or great fishing at Pinney or 11 Mile reservoirs within just a few miles. 34 million year old fossils have been taken from the Florissant fossil beds you can explore just 7 miles away. Rafting, art galleries, shopping or wine tasting are in store just 30-40 minutes away in Cannon City. The Rotal Gorge railway and Gorge rafting make for a wonderful family adventure just 30 mins away. Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs are within an hour drive. Colorado Springs airport is just an hour and a half away. An abundance of things to do, only limited by the imagination!
