Property description

Larkspur House is an updated 1880's cottage. It is cozy, yet comfortable. Three bedrooms include one queen bed, one double bed and one twin trundle. The smallest bedroom is comfortable for one adult or two children. Two updated full baths - one with a great claw-foot tub for soaking. The kitchen is large and fully furnished with everything a serious cook needs. Large dining room and comfortable livingroom. A small reading sunroom and laundryroom make the house wonderful for an extended stay. The yard is large and full of native flowers. It is on a quiet street so a great place for sitting outside for morning coffe or afternoon drinks (well, only in the warmer months - that is all 4 of them!)

Leadville is a small, historic mountain town in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. We are within 1 hour of 7 ski areas. The house is walking distance from the Mineral Belt Trail - an 11+ mile paved loop around town, perfect for cross-country skiing in winter and biking/walking in summer. Other summer activities are too numerous to list! Hiking, fishing, biking, wildflowers, history, racing (participants/supporters/spectators), rafting... Winter is, of course, for skiing - alpine and cross-country- snowshoeing and snowmobiling.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I moved to Leadville in 2002 when I accepted a faculty position at Colorado Mountain College. I was lucky enough to find this house and spent 8 years making it perfect. Of course, as careers go, I needed to move on. I am now in Colorado Springs but couldn't leave my house and Leadville behind. I try to get up there every month, but that doesn't always work out.

Why the Owner Chose Leadville:
When I walked into the house with the seller in February of 2004, the sun was streaming through that beautiful south facing bay window onto the hardwood floors. I saw the little sunroom, perfect for yoga, and knew it was my place. Great neighborhood and neighbors and perfect for walking downtown - I could not have asked for more in a home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is one of the best, but that is not unusual here. This is the perfect house for the cook/reader/gardener/hiker/skier....
