About the Property
4 bedroom, 3 full bath with 360 degree mountain views that will inspire all!
When you enter this luxury mountain house, you walk in the first floor mudroom area where there is plenty of space and cubbies to store your ski, fishing, hiking or other outdoor equipment. As you continue to enter the house, you will find a dart board area, an open TV room with a large sectional couch, a flatscreen and a foosball table. The bedroom with the double bunkbed is located off of this comfortable family room. Also, located on this floor is a bedroom with queen sized bath, a desk and phone line, a exit onto the first floor wraparound deck, a full bathroom with sauna and the laundry area. Head upstairs and when you arrive on the second floor you will see windows and breathtaking views from this large family/kitchen. This room almost feels like you are in a treehouse with cathedral wood ceiling and an open comfortable space to spend time cooking, dining, listening to music, reading and playing games. The sectional couch and the loveseat that also doubles as a pull out couch are both beautiful brown leather. There is a working wood burning stove in this main area. There are 2 different French doors in this upstairs area that exit onto the wraparound deck. There is a proprane grill available for use here and a wonderful outdoor table to enjoy the vast mountain views. This floor has 2 full baths, one located off of the kitchen and one located in the main bedroom. The main bedroom is a beautiful room with French doors to the deck, a double shower with stone tile, double master sink and a walk in closet. The loft is located above this main space and has 2 double beds, a small table and Turkish throw pillows and a leather chair. Plenty of space for relaxing or putting a gaggle of kids! With the loft, the pullout love seat, the king bed in the master, the queen in the downstairs bedroom and the double bunk bed in the second downstairs bedroom, this house will sleep 6-8 (4-6 adults with 2-4 kids) people. The beds and the linens are all very comfortable with down comforters on most of the beds.
This house is a great place for family reunion or a retreat from busy life. It is located above Crested Butte South, only 25 minutes from Mt.CB for downhill skiing, 15 minutes from downtown Crested Butte and 5 minutes from amenities such as coffee shop and roaster, liquor store, Tully's Pizza and bar, the General Store and gas station, ice rink, town park, Crested Butte South Nordic skiing (the town grooms it through the winter for Skate skiing and classic and just ask for a $5 dollar donation). The trails loop right below our house. We also have an outdoor campfire area with benches and can be used through the season as long as there is no fireban, and a hot tub is located on the first floor deck outside of the main first floor bedroom.
This location is amazing during all seasons, summer you will find that you are very close to some of the best fly fishing in Gunnison River Drainage, just 5 minutes from Cement Creek Road for hiking, trail running, mountain biking, fishing and motor cross. River rafting is available just down the road in Almont or up the Thompson River. During autumn, there are some wonderful festivals happening in Crested Butte such as the CB film fest and Vinotauk… and it is a perfect time of year to be in an Aspen grove… the leaves are so beautiful. Winter is fantastic, sledding can easily be had down the driveway or on the property below the house, ice skating in CB South or town, up to the mountain for downhill skiing, Nordic skiing anywhere in the area or to the yurt at Peanut Lake, the possibilities are endless!
This house is a peaceful rest from the busy everyday of life, the retreat element is probably the biggest draw for our family… we always feel restored and renewed after a few days spend at 550 Lower Highlands.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We purchased this home before we had children. We have raised our 3 children on vacation in this home since they were babies. It is an amazing place for a family vacation, to truly get away, enjoy the mountains and a peaceful retreat.
Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte South, Crested Butte, CO, USA:
It is surrounded by an aspen forest on 15 acres. It is SO beautiful. We fell in love with it and Crested Butte. There are many days that we do not even leave the property or even just stay in our pajamas and snuggle in.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautiful, very comfortable retreat from it all- get away from the hustle and bustle of life, but still have all the benefits of an amazing little ski town.
