Property description

Built in 1881, this is one of three original homes in Telluride's historic district still standing. It was fully restored in 2003. North Oak Street is full of classic Victorians and is the heart of the old town. Up the hill is the jeep road to the Tomboy ghost town and the town of Ouray; down the hill is the historic Main Street with a variety of interesting shops and amenities and then, past the shops is Town Park with soccer, baseball, ice skating, hockey rink and Festivals galore. Head straight down Oak Street and you're at Gondola Plaza, ready to catch a ride up to the powder! - or to the Mountain Village for drinks, dinner, spas, etc.

The house is perfect for family vacations or for multiple couples looking for a mountain adventure. One (Queen) bedroom is large with a balcony overlooking town park and the box canyon walls. An optional efficiency apartment with a separate entrance for someone who needs a bit more privacy is available some weeks/months of the year for overflow guests. The other two bedrooms are standard size sleeping rooms with double beds. A steam shower after your hike or ski is refreshing! Sit on the front porch steps and you'll see all of Telluride pass you by!

PS: This town is FULL of kids these days. Both the private and the public schools are excellent. Your kids can safely wander the town alone. That's the ultimate beauty of the place!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: I moved to Telluride from Big Sur California in 1976 and bought a bedraggled old Victorian the first week i arrived. I've spent 30 years, gradually improving the house and property. I'm happy with it now just as it is, finally! My three sons went through school here, left, and then two returned as adults. My oldest grandchild is in second grade - at the same school his dad went to. I've totally enjoyed watching Telluride 'grow up' during my 34 years here-so far. But no matter how much the town gets buffed out, the mountains still rule and they are delightfully unchanged. After playing a super-active role in the community for 30 years, I've begun to spend more time traveling the world, but I always come back to this magic summer mountain resort, high in the Rockies.
