Property description

This updated Victorian Rental has all the comforts of home with a large kitchen and living space ideal for the gathering of family or friends. It sleeps 2 to 6 people comfortably and is equipped for babies too.

During the warmer months we have a backyard patio and small yard filled with beautiful flowers, a water feature, fire pit, barbeque grill and plenty of seating. In both summer and winter we are close to numerous outdoor activities. You can walk two blocks to the main avenue and a short distance to the National Mining museum, restaurants and shops and just one block to Leadville's scenic railroad.

The Martin J. Murphy built this historic house in 1878. He owned a Club downtown and had interests in mines in the early days.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: Mary and Tim, are both retired teachers and Leadville history buffs.

Why the Owner Chose Leadville, CO, USA:
My husband and I moved to Leadville straight out of college. We love the outdoor lifestyle and were struck by the incredible views of Colorado’s highest mountains all around us. We fell in love with the Victorian homes here and refurbished the McCombe house next door. Years later, Tim and I restored and rebuilt the Murphy house and we are pleased to share it with you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We remodeled the Murphy house to offer comfort and an open concept. The kitchen and living room offer great space to socialize and entertain. This area offers both a gas fireplace and wood stove for those colder months. The house is light and cheerful. The two bathrooms are beautifully tiled, one has a walk-in shower and separate tub, the other has a jacuzzi tub and shower combination. We have short summers, so we love keeping a beautiful yard and flowers for our summer guests. In winter, we have plenty of snow for winter sports enthusiasts. We are two blocks from the center of town and one block from the scenic railroad. Our corner lot is just the right distance from all the activities; the home is quiet and restful even during our highest tourism season. Did I mention that we live next door? Our guests have all the privacy they desire and we are still available to answer questions and assure a perfect stay. Need more housing for a family reunion or other event? Ask us about our other property just next door to keep the group together!
