Mt. Crested Butte house description

Welcome to a world few have seen and only a handful have experienced. It is here at the Tipple House that past, present and future melt into the ultimate high mountain experience that will truly last a lifetime.

The Tipple House is at once a living piece of art and history. The heart of this property both in its physicality and spirit span back more than 100 years; bringing a depth of richness only few structures can offer. Countless man-hours were spent painstakingly creating a new luxury home surrounded by not only reclaimed materials, but historic structures transported from afar.

The home was specifically designed around a historical mining bunkhouse from the Gold Links Mine in Ohio City, Colorado. When the design/build team identified this centerpiece, it was dismantled piece by piece (down to the nails) and transported back to Crested Butte where it was re-built as the cornerstone of the home. The design philosophy of utilizing all historic materials is an underlying theme that begins with the old bunkhouse and seamlessly extends into the newer additions—blending the old world with the new in a truly artisan format.

Located on arguably one of the best pieces of land in the entire valley, the Tipple House commands the most powerful views of the rocky mountain landscape. With a plethora of glassed walls, generous windows and sweeping outdoor spaces the property brings you to the front row of nature. Nestled at over 10,000 feet, the home peers out to the massive West Elk mountains and the winding East River below. Set on the northern flanks of Mt. Crested Butte, world class skiing is literally out your front door.

Upon entering the home, the magnificent architecture instantly grabs you—no detail has been left without great thought and attention. The craftsman construction is palatable at every turn; something covered by several high-end architectural publications. Exquisitely furnished in the “rustic elegant” style, the carefully selected fixtures, colors and materials will instantly provide that warm and cozy “at home” feeling….careful, you may never want to leave.

With 4 generous bedrooms, sleeping 14 people in grand comfort, this is the perfect retreat for your high alpine luxury experience. The layout consists of the following:

Master Suite (King bed)
4 Guest Suites (one with a King and the others with Queen beds)
The bunk room (2 sets of built in barnwood bunks)
The office/game room (Day bed with twin trundle)

All bedrooms provide en-suite bathrooms hosting the most pampering creature comforts such as steam showers and cozy tubs. The bathrooms themselves offer materials and finishes that many have never seen…and none will forget. Jerusalem gold limestone, pillowed marble, honey onxy, soapstone, and Carrera marble have been used extensively in the most artisanal fashion imaginable.

State of the art audio/visual systems will please the most discerning audiophile in any location of the property. The living room hosts a 32” HD LED TV with Direct TV, Blu-Ray and Apple TV. For a true cinematic experience, try the family room where a 60” HD LED TV awaits. Accompanying this massive screen is Direct TV, Blu-Ray, Apple TV and direct iPad control. Your senses will be electrified with the Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound theatre. To be sure you are always at the control of your favorite music, a Sonos audio system is available in every room and controlled by iPod Touch units. To round out the in-house technology, high speed wireless internet is available throughout the entire home, so if you have to stay connected it’s not an issue; even at 10,000 feet on the side of a mountain!

Entertaining is where the Tipple House excels. With a unique and creative layout the house provides open gathering spaces or if preferred small intimate rooms that ooze with coziness. If you seek a special retreat, try the “Tipple Tower,” a three-story glass observatory offering 360-degree views. To rounds things out, the custom built, wood burning fireplaces ignite that visceral sense being high up in the mountains.

When it’s time for your culinary adventures to begin, you will be hard pressed to find a kitchen elsewhere with such high standards. Combining the state of the art commercial functionality with a 3-star Michelin restaurant you’ll be equipped for catering a wedding, a soufflé for two or anything in between. Top of the line commercial appliances from Viking, Miele, Fisher & Paykel leave nothing to be desired in this world-class kitchen. Why bother with just a regular cup of coffee when you have your very own built-in espresso machine? Need to store that exquisite bottle of Opus One? Just use the under-counter wine cooler set to your desired storage or serving temperature.

To compliment the amenities inside the home, follow your instinct to spend time under the stars on the custom built patio where the outdoor hot tub awaits…the perfect place for all to enjoy after a long day on the hill. The privacy of the Tipple House is truly appreciated when soaking alfresco and looking out at your own masterpiece of the Rocky Mountains! Ample outdoor entertaining spaces includes patios, covered decks and a custom fire pit…all within the inground snowmelt system. After all, you’re on vacation, who wants to shovel?! In the summertime, the home site is completed with a sea of technicolor wildflower meadows.

Lastly, when it’s time to make some turns on the hill, take advantage of the custom, in-house ski rental and fitting service! This will help ease the stress of travel and get you and your family the perfect set up before heading out the door and onto the slopes. And when you return, the ski room is your perfect staging area for the day’s adventure…complete with cubbies, ski storage, in-floor heat and a Wintersteiger 15-pair boot dryer.

Come to the Tipple House for a once in the lifetime experience!
