Leadville house description

Our beautifully decorated 3-story 5 bedroom/4 bath home offers 3 king size beds on the upper floor and 2 queen size beds on the lower floor. There are no bedrooms on the main floor. It sleeps 10 comfortably. Situated on one acre of land, our home is a quiet retreat from the hustle of most tourist destinations. During the winter, the snow blankets the house with quiet beauty, a perfect place for lighting a wood fire in the main living room. Downstairs, the kids can light their own fire (it's gas), watch their own movies (we have a complete library of videos available for use) or entertain themselves with the X-Box 360 (we have X-Box 360 Kinect/DVD games or bring your own).

Our home office is set up for high-speed internet and other office supplies for your disposal.

Our modern kitchen is equipped with granite countertops, a microwave oven, a natural gas stove and a convection oven for quick high altitude cooking. The cabinets are fully stocked with condiments and other non-perishables available for guest use. Make yourself at home.

During the summer, enjoy the fire pit in the back yard while roasting hot dogs and making s'mores. The kids will enjoy the log pole fort and swing set and slide. Oh, and don't forget that, winter or summer, cooking on the outdoor gas grill is always fun.

If you need to catch up on your laundry, feel free to use the front-load washer and dryer in the laundry room conveniently located right between the kitchen and the oversized heated garage.

Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I invite you to take a peek at our beautiful home.

              Location

              Located within driving distance to major ski resorts in the Rockies: 20 minute drive to Ski Cooper, 30 minutes to Copper Mountain, 45 minutes to Breckenridge/Keystone, 1 hr to Vail/Beaver Creek, 1 1/2 hour to Ski Monarch. Incredible summer destination for white water rafting and back country hiking, biking, and 4-wheeling, not to mention attacking the 14'rs in our own back yard. Mt. Massive and Mt. Elbert are in our back yard. Turquoise Lake and the entire surrounding area are magnificent in beauty and offer summer recreation, more than can be completed in a lifetime. Drive to Buena Vista, Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, Mt. Elmo...the list goes on...just 30 minutes south of Leadville...for more incredible scenery and outdoor activities.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Hi, fellow travelers! Dwight and I have been married since 1980 and are blessed to have all 5 children and 8 grandchildren living near us in Jacksonville, Florida (that's on the Atlantic Ocean). We began taking our children skiing in the Colorado Rockies when they were very young, and eventually, we purchased a condo in Vail, Colorado. For 20 years, we made the journey to Vail with family and friends numerous times each year. Many years ago, we gave up the long lines and crowds of Vail, when we discovered Leadville and family friendly Ski Cooper. It was only a matter of time before we decided to sell our Vail condo and purchase a 'real' house in Leadville. When we found this house, I fell in love with it. We sold our condo in one day and purchased this home in 2006. Since then, it's been a joy to decorate it to make it so unlike Florida and so much Colorado mountain country!

              Why the Owner Chose Leadville:
              When we purchased our home, we were looking for something that would accommodate our large and growing family. With 4 adult married children and grandchildren, we needed a place where couples could find privacy and children could play and make all the noise they wanted to. It was love at first sight. We also wanted a garage that would hold our two vehicles (one is kept in Denver while we are away). Our garage is heated, so you never have to make a treck outside in the snow just to get into your car.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The two living areas offer privacy for adult couples or for large families to enjoy each other. Our home is close to town and convenient for running out for groceries and other necessities; yet, it's location sets the ambiance of mountain living at its best. It is not uncommon to see deer feeding in the back yard during the summer or foxes darting across the road. Drive down the road a piece, and you may see herds of big horn sheep, antelope, elk, white tail deer and mule deer grazing in the meadows. You might even see a porcupine climb a tree or a moose grazing on the shore of a lake. There is so much to see and do here: downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, dog sledding, ice skating, sledding, tubing, snow shoeing and snowmobiling in the winter. Don't forget the Crystal Carnival in Leadville, where you can watch the skijoring and dog sled races! During the summer months, take the Leadville train up the mountain, conquer the biking trail, hike to the summit of Mt. Elbert or Mt. Massive, go on a back country trail ride by horse, jeep or ATV (4-wheeler), go white water rafting, or explore the mines of Leadville, the famous Tabor Opera House, the Colorado Mining Museum, and other deserted mining towns like Tin Cup and St. Elmo. Try out the heated swimming pools and hot springs at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort. So much to do and so little time. You can always make the incredibly beautiful drive to Vail, if you still have time. Don't forget Boom Days, where you can enjoy the famous burro races and parade down the center of town in your own turn-of-the-century costume. Leadville in summer is paradise.
