Property description

Our spacious home is situated one block from Main Street on the sunny side of town, less then a five-minute walk to the Gondola, Town Park, restaurants, stores and trails. It and has views on all sides of the box canyon.

This historic home was built in 1898. The interior has been recently remodeled with Green Building Materials to accommodate the most modern amenities. The spacious kitchen is equipped with a Wolf stove and a large stainless-steel refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and other electrical appliances used in gourmet kitchens. A butcher-block island in the center of the kitchen is great for cooperative cooking or bar-style dining. There is also a custom wooden family style dinner table that seats 8. A Kimball upright piano circa 1900 is located in the dining room and can be played as you await your meal as it is being prepared.

A comfortable and modern sunken living room is two steps down form the kitchen area, where cozy couches and relax-your-back recliners and a love seat that surround a cozy gas fired stove. The south facing bay window looks out into Bear Creek with views of multiple mountain peaks.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The Skylight room has a comfortable queen bed from which you can star gaze from or just watch the snow fall. A Private bathroom with an very deep bath tub and large trough concrete sink is unattached to the Skylake room. The master Bedroom, with native american rugs, and quilted bedding and good reading lights looks out onto Wasash Peak. The recently remodeled bathroom addition has an oversized bathtub that could comfortably fit two, a large glass surrounded shower, twin sinks that sit atop a unique countertop made from recyled glass and is stunning and spa like. Reclaimed hickory wood floors are throughout the top floor.

Downstairs you’ll find a TV/ game room with a 46' flat screen tv, an elliptical glider and exercise bike, exciting wall to wall carpeting makes this room come alive. Leaded glass doors lead into the downstairs 3rd bedroom that can sleep 2 on the single bunk beds, and 2 on a pull our futon. The downstairs bathroom has also been recently remodeled with stunning green building materials that you will be impressed with. This bathroom includes a steam shower.

From the outdoor private hot tub you can hear clear live music coming from festivals in the park, or relax after a day of skiing.

East Columbia Avenue is a tree-lined street with majestic mountain views from every window. It’s an easy walk to Main Street and it’s many restaurants, concerts, art galleries and shopping. We have one parking space and a street pass, but cars are unnecessary when gondolas and your feet provide easy access. The free galloping goose passes by every 10 minutes just one block away. Main street and Town park are literally 50 steps away.
