Property description

Take a step back in time. Back when Jokerville, Teocali and Peanut were mines instead of ski runs. Back when the Company Store was actually owned by the mine company. Back when a single gas stove on each side provided the only heat for the large two-story duplex on Elk Avenue. And the cooking was done on a cast iron wood stove.

By the mid-1950s, the mines were closing and the outlook for Crested Butte looked grim. D.A. and Altha Hunt (affectionately known by family and friends as Poncho and Blossom) came to the area to do some uranium prospecting and fell in love with the beauty of the area, the cool summertime temperatures, and the opportunity to indulge in a land time forgot and decided to buy the big yellow duplex. They added bathrooms in former closets on both sides of the duplex and a tradition began.

Soon their whole family was coming to escape the Texas heat. They discovered autumn afforded spectacular beauty as the aspen leaves shook in vivid yellows. The trout fishing in the mountain streams and lakes is second to none. Then came the ski area and they were back for skiing at the premiere ski resort in the Rockies.

Now, you and your family can create one of a kind memories that will last a lifetime as well. Extensive remodeling has enlarged the house to seven full bedrooms and four and a half baths. The kitchen features a full-size oven and two dishwashers. You will appreciate many things about the house like its proximity to shuttle service, washer and dryer availability, two water heaters so the hot water keeps on coming, satellite television with the latest flat screen LCD, and many beautiful antique furnishings, some of which are original to the house when purchased back in the mid-1950s.

Each room has electric blankets and a furnace heats the downstairs allowing that warmth to rise to the second and third floors above. Open windows on the upper floors keep you cool in the summertime.

Hiking, biking, and jeep trails surround Crested Butte. You will relish the quaint shopping experience along Elk Avenue and beyond and some of the best nationally recognized restaurants anywhere. Book your vacation now in a true Victorian home that has become an icon of the town and is over 110 years old. It is one of the only residential houses left on Elk Ave. So winter, summer or fall you are in the heart of all the fun in historic downtown Crested Butte!

Year Purchased: 1955

About: The Hunt Family has owned and enjoyed this home since the mid 1950s traveling on a regular basis from their homes in Texas to enjoy the cool mountain air and activities of Gunnison County. Five generations have grown up loving this historic beauty.

Why Crested Butte, CO, USA:
By the mid-1950s, the mines were closing and the outlook for Crested Butte looked grim. D.A. and Altha Hunt (affectionately known by family and friends as Poncho and Blossom) came to the area to do some uranium prospecting and fell in love with the beauty of the area, the cool summertime temperatures, and the opportunity to indulge in a land time forgot and decided to buy the big yellow duplex. They added bathrooms in former closets on both sides of the duplex and a tradition began. Soon their whole family was coming to escape the Texas heat. They discovered autumn afforded spectacular beauty as the aspen leaves shook in vivid yellows. The trout fishing in the mountain streams and lakes is second to none. Then came the ski area and they were back for skiing at the premiere ski resort in the Rockies.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hiking, biking, and jeep trails surround Crested Butte. You will relish the quaint shopping experience along Elk Avenue and beyond and some of the best nationally recognized restaurants anywhere. Book your vacation now in a true Victorian home that has become an icon of the town and is over 100 years old. It is one of the only residential houses left on Elk Ave. So winter, summer or fall you are in the heart of all the fun in historic downtown Crested Butte! The Hunt's house is located right in the middle of town at 4th and Elk Ave. next to the 'License Plate Plaza' and across the street from Donita's Cantina. Just around the corner is Camp 4 Coffee for that early morning latte. Summer or winter you can walk to all the restaurants and shopping in town. During the winter, the bus to the Mt. Crested Butte area is just a short walk down 4th street. Why not start your own family tradition today?
