Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: When the Wingate is not occupied by weekly renters, the owner lives in and runs the Wingate as a Bed and Breakfast. She is also an artist (painter) who gets her inspiration and collects her imagery while backpacking in the nearby wilderness. Because the mountains, Silverton and the Wingate are so special, she enjoys sharing all of the the above. She is happy to share her knowledge of the mountains and by appointment, will also share her art work in her studio, behind the Wingate.

Why the Owner Chose Silverton:
The Wingate House is one of the most beautiful houses in one of the most authentic historic high alpine towns in the most spectacular mountains in one of the best countries in the world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will enjoy incredible views of 13,000 and 14,000 foot mountains while breathing the freshest air on the front porch of the Wingate House.
