Property description

Looking for peace and quiet as well as adventure, excitement, and history? Leadville has it and this home is your hub to experience all that Leadville has to offer. Whether you prefer the winter or the summer, Leadville is in a great location to enjoy all that there is to do in the outdoors. This house is located close to the main street of Leadville (Harrison Ave.) You can walk to town to shop for a unique Leadville treasure, grab a cup of coffee, or meet friends for dinner on a beautiful summer night. The house is within walking distance of the Mineral Belt Trail - a 12 mile paved trail that rings the city of Leadville - great for biking and running in the summer or cross-country/nordic skiing, and snowshoeing in the winter. Our home has beautiful views of Turquoise Lake, Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive. The street is quiet and lined with many old trees. The house is a shotgun Victorian built in 1901 that has been gutted and rebuilt with modern amenities and restored Victorian features. The downstairs has 10 foot wainscoted ceilings in the living room and dining room. There is one bedroom downstairs. The downstairs bathroom has a 6 foot long claw-foot tub and a large pedestal sink. Pristine oak wood floors are found throughout the first floor with oriental carpets in each room. The living room has large west-facing windows to enjoy the afternoon sunset and a view of Turquoise Lake. It also has a gas stove. A large mission style table in the dining room has plenty of room to seat a full-house. The kitchen has been redesigned with new cabinets, and an over-sized granite-tiled island perfect for breakfast and lunch or a casual supper. The washer and dryer are on the first floor as well. The kitchen was originally two smaller rooms. We took out a wall, added the island, and had room for a cozy futon couch. It's perfect for reading or napping in front of the sun drenched picture windows. A gas stove in the kitchen adds the warmth only a fire can bring. Up the stairs a room at the top has 2 queen-sized futons, carpeted wood floor, and another gas stove. The window in this room highlights the view of Mt. Elbert while the south facing windows present views of the Mosquito Range to the east. Another couple of steps up, takes you to the gabled second bedroom with the second bathroom. The queen-sized bed sits under a west facing window while the other window lets in the eastern light. They create the perfect set-up for a cool summer cross-breeze and a great night's sleep. The bathroom was custom made with a beautifully tiled shower, glass vessel sink, and granite vanity. The house is unique and full of character, that's for sure. It's comfortable and welcoming whether you've had a long day on the slopes, an adventurous trip up a 14er, a long training ride or run, or a stroll through the mining district of the city.

Keywords: Sunny, bright, warm, spacious, comfortable, cozy, convenient to town, great location.

Year Purchased: 1998

Why Leadville:
This home is a special place. It has the feel of an old Victorian with updates that make it cozy and comfortable. We enjoy the peace and serenity of being up in the mountains, while at the same time revel in the unique quirky characteristics of this historic mountain town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Leadville is close to so much. There are great trails for hiking, running, and biking close by. If there's still a lot of snow on the trails, Buena Vista is a short drive downhill with snow-free trails and hot springs to soak in after a long hike, run, or ride. There are ghost towns within 45 minutes to explore as well as many historical mining artifacts scattered throughout the east side of town in Leadville. In the summer, there's rafting and kayaking in Buena Vista and Salida on the Arkansas River which is 30 minutes to an hour away. Aspen and Vail have many summer festivals and activities to take part in. Vail is only 45 minutes and Aspen is an hour and a half over Independence Pass, a spectacular drive that crosses the Continental Divide. If you're looking for a unique dining experience, there's the Tennessee Pass Cookhouse, a yurt located a mile north of Ski Cooper in the national forest. In the winter, you can snowshoe to the yurt for a five star dining experience. In the summer, you can hike or drive there. With views of the Sawatch Range (Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, Colorado's highest peaks) and the shimmering stars at night, it feels like you're sitting on your back deck with the most beautiful vista as your back yard.
