Property description

This modern town home, fully and lovingly renovated in 2011, combines the comfort and style of contemporary furniture with the warmth of family heirlooms, all in a dramatic architectural space. There are NO CLEANING FEES AND NO SECURITY DEPOSITS, so you’ll know in advance exactly what your vacation will cost.

Settling in: Mingle in the upstairs great room, where the kitchen, living, and dining areas flow together under a cathedral ceiling. The Vermont Castings gas stove will keep you toasty on a snowy winter day, while in summer the windows on opposite sides will bring in the fresh mountain air. There’s satellite TV with a built-in DVD player, a stereo-CD player, and 7 megabyte wireless broadband internet. Washer and dryer, too.

Sleeping and unpacking: The two bedrooms, both downstairs, have new queen beds topped with cozy comforters and comfy cotton bedding, closets, and plenty of drawer space. There’s a comfortable full-size sofa-bed in the living room, plus two foam cushions in the loft that make up into two singles for the kids or a queen for another couple.

Cooking and eating: The fully-equipped granite kitchen has everything you’ll need to prepare a morning breakfast or a Thanksgiving family feast. Add the leaves to the dining room table and it expands from seating six to ten. There’s even a covered deck with a gas grill for BBQing year-round. But why you’d want to cook, given CB’s culinary diversity and reputation, is beyond us!

No bathroom traffic jams: The downstairs bath has a double-sink vanity and a separate room for the toilet and tub. Upstairs is another gorgeous ¾ bath with an oversized shower. Plus two-person-wide mirrors in both baths and the softest Egyptian cotton towels you’ve ever wrapped up in.

Views: Enjoy a sunny summer breakfast on the deck with its wildflower garden, or gaze out the great room windows to a knock-your-socks-off view of Mt Created Butte or up-valley to the ski area and the July 4th fireworks celebration.

Getting around: With two off-street parking spaces, you’ll have no alternative side of the street parking hassles to contend with. Just park your car and put away the keys. You’re one block from the Mountain Express bus stop that takes you (for free) straight to Mt Crested Butte and the ski area. You’re one block from the paved “recreation path/bike path” to the mountain; and three blocks from Elk Avenue, Crested Butte’s historic main street, with its shops, restaurants, bars and coffee shops, and more.

Four-season enjoyment: Crested Butte’s best kept secret is its wonderful, sunny four-season climate. Its nearly year-round snow-capped peaks, abundant wildflowers, splendid fall colors, and funky Fourth of July parade make it even more popular in the “other” seasons than it is in the winter.

Keywords: Skiing, X-C skiing, hiking, mountain biking, wildflowers, fall colors, lots of playgrounds, near shuttle to ski area, near historic downtown

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We, Donna and John Mullins, first came to Crested Butte in 1972 and have been in love with the town and area ever since. We are seasoned travelers and still believe Crested Butte is among the most beautiful places in the world. Our two daughters, Kristina and Heather, grew up in Crested Butte as their second home and now share it with their families. Our three year old twin grandsons think riding the big ski bus to the mountain is the coolest thing ever! John is a professor at London Business School and shares his time between England and Colorado. Donna is a gerontologist and senior housing design consultant. We anticipate many, many more years of family enjoyment in Crested Butte and the area.

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte:
We made a commitment to Crested Butte in 1972 and have owned property of one kind or another here ever since. We wanted a place to call home in the mountains. We enjoy all seasons in Crested Butte and find the drive from the Denver Metro Area spectacular with the time flying by.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We think it's wonderful that we can park the car and leave it parked during our entire stay if we choose to do so. Almost everything we do is accessible by foot or bicycle or bus. We enjoy hiking, biking, the music, art, playing in the playgrounds and especially the restaurants in town..
