Leadville house description

Nestled at the base of Mount Elbert (14,433 ft) and just 4.3 driving miles to the boat ramp at Twin Lakes, this property offers unparalleled access to multiple fishing lakes, mountain trails, and ski resorts. Built in 2010, this 1,500 sq. ft. three bedroom, two bath home offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located just 18 miles south of Leadville, Colorado, this modern home offers an open ranch style floor plan with open living, dining, and kitchen area; a spacious 6-seat breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the living room and provides a social gathering place for friends and family. The home includes a 5-burner gas grill on the spacious stamped-concrete back deck as well as 6-seat patio set for evening entertaining. A large outdoor firepit is fully stocked with cured pine logs and kindling for the perfect evening retreat after a long day of fun. Inside the home is a spacious master bedroom with King size bed, master bath with walk-in shower and vintage claw foot tub (circa 1903). Plenty of storage is available for all your clothing needs as the master also offers a full-size walk-in closet and antique chest of drawers. Two large guest bedrooms provide ample space for kids or other couples and each feature large windows for amazing forest views and natural lighting. Throughout the home, you will find knotty pine doors and trim; the kitchen is ornate with beautiful hickory cabinets and stainless steel appliances; and the living room is complimented with a beautiful gas fireplace, 40” flatscreen satellite TV, and full-size sleeper sofa. The kitchen is also fully stocked with all manner of utensils, high-quality pots and pans, small appliances, and even a variety of spices and seasonings. For extended stays, guests can leverage the full size washer and dryer to ensure they never run out of fresh clothes.

              Location

              -Colorado 14’ers are all around you; Mt. Elbert is the highest in Colorado at 14,433 and it’s directly outside your door.

              -A short distance up highway 82 toward Aspen is the trailhead to LaPlata Peak.

              -Fishing access is plentiful in our surrounding lakes and rivers: ForeBay lake, Twin lakes, Turquoise, and the Arkansas River.

              -ATV trails are plentiful and Lake County has a local ordinance allowing the use of ATVs/UTVs on all county roads (Paved or dirt).

              -Hiking and snowshoeing the multitude of trails in Lake County are among the leading outdoor activities in central Colorado; the trailhead for Mt. Elbert is right around the corner.

              -Several ski resorts are located within an hour and a half; Monarch Mountain, Ski Cooper (Family Friendly), Copper Mountain, Beaver Creek, Vail, Keystone, Breckenridge.

              -Taylor Park, west of Buena Vista, is one of the most beautiful locations in the world; simply cross Cottonwood Pass (in the summer) and enjoy the scenery.

              -Aspen is located 34 miles west on Highway 82 across Independence Pass but is often closed due to snowpack and travel restrictions.

              -4-Wheel Drive trails are abundant and the trip through Mosquito Pass is unrivalled; Weston Pass offers breathtaking scenery and a little less fear...travel both with caution!

              -Summer time rafting can be quite exhilarating; several rafting companies headquarter out of Buena Vista and can be found quite easily.

              -Salida offers a wide variety of outdoor activities and even has a zip line course for the daring!
