Property description

Colvin Ranch House, a luxury custom estate home on 300 private acres 1 mile from Crested Butte! Total privacy with the convenience of town just a jaunt away. Tranquility and peacefulness at Colorado's finest. An exquisite custom home close to town with total privacy, wilderness access and fantastic views - Whetstone Mountain Ranch is totally unique. There are currently only 3 homes on this 300 acre ranch, with trails, ponds, and private access to the Slate River and world class fishing. CALL FOR DETAILS!

Colvin Ranch offers a 4 bedroom deluxe house with 4-1/2 baths. It is located 2 minutes from town. As you drive North into Crested Butte, the ranch is on the West side nestled underneath gorgeous aspen and pine covered mountains. There is excellent private fishing on the property - the Slate River, as well as several large ponds.

The home has an extremely private master suite with a king bed, clawfoot bathtub, large walk-in shower, and exercise room that takes up one whole wing of the house.

Two additional master suites are located downstairs. One has a king bed and large sitting area with couch. The other has a queen bed. The third downstairs bedroom has a queen bed with its own full bath across the hall. All downstairs bedrooms have large windows and exterior doors leading to a private covered patio and pond. Bedrooms are beautifully furnished, with new pillow-top mattresses and down comforters.

A large great room is perfect for entertaining, with the massive gas fireplace and huge in your face breathtaking views. A breakfast nook off the kitchen seats 6 and overlooks the pond and Mt. CB in the front yard. You are surrounded by lakes, aspens, pines - it's part of Whetstone Ranch - acres and acres of land filled with vistas, lakes and pines. It is all yours. The biggest lake has a campfire area complete with picnic tables and barbecue pit.

Want some privacy to ski, fish, relax and have some space in the mountains? It doesn't get any better.

In winter, you can ski right out the front door. Summer is perfect for bikes, horseback riding, hiking, paddle boarding, disc golf and fishing. It will take you 5 minutes to bike to town, 3 minutes to drive to golf.

The house is only a mile from downtown Crested Butte, with a public shuttle to the ski hill, restaurants and other amenities. Perfect for couples, families and small groups. The house and setting are truly one-of-a-kind.

Streams run thru the house - or rather, underneath it. The house is built on top of the streams, on bridges as it were.
For privacy, space and luxury, location, wilderness access and fishing, this home is absolutely unique in Crested Butte. The house is 3800 sq. ft.
