Car: Recommended

An A-frame house with floor to roof views of Red Rock Cliffs from home on the sunny side of the valley at 7450 feet of elevation makes it warmer and easier to adjust to than Telluride/Mountain Village (8900 and 9400 feet). The Bus Stops to/from Telluride are 2 and 3 minute walks. The newly opened Angler Inn (formerly the Blue Jay Lodge and Cafe) is just behind house. It has a very nice restaurant and beer garden. Sawpit Mercantile, Gas, and Liquor, the Placerville General Store, Liquor, and Post Office are within a 5 minute drive. Downvalley County Park with a great fishing hole on the San Miguel River is a 3 minute walk. Peaceful neighborhood. Beautiful 18 minute ride to and from Telluride/Mountain Village. Plenty of free parking. We have never needed 4WD from this house, as the 250 feet of road from Route 145 to the house is almost flat and we do not get as much snow as Telluride/Mountain Village. Route 145 is cleared of snow well.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife, our 2 growing children, and I love to ski and hike and bike and do everything great outdoors. I have skied all over the world and Telluride wins the award for beauty, and what a phenomenal ski area it is for everyone, so I built this home here.

Why the Owner Chose Placerville, CO, USA:
This home is in a beautiful rural but convenient location which is a very scenic, 15 minute drive to Telluride's Lift 7. The Angler Inn, a great new restaurant with a beer garden and espresso bar, is one minute away by foot. There is a bus stop there and another just across the highway and down a little bit that will get you to and from Telluride during the week, so it makes it easier if someone wants to go early, get up there at lunch time, or come home a little later than the others. We love Downvalley Park, just a 3 minute walk away. It has a field, heated bathrooms with real toilets, hiking trails, a stocked pond, and the San Miguel River as well for fishing. This home lets you have all that Telluride has to offer, except the crowds, while being cheaper, roomier, quieter, and lower down in elevation, meaning it's easier to acclimate to for those with altitude issues.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I'm happy that my home is away from the crowds in Telluride and Mountain Village. Go out during the day, and hike, bike, or ski, and then come on back and relax. Then take a walk over to the park with its own bathrooms, picnic tables, hiking trails, playground, pond full of trout and wildlife, and the river, or to the Angler Inn, or to all 3, over and over! Take a car or the bus to town. Take your bike along and ride downhill back home. No problems here with parking, and lots of elbow room to be comfortable in the picturesque and charming little neighborhood. The home has floor-to-roof windows showing the scenic red rocks and greenery, a spacious and modern kitchen, living room and loft, 2 large bedrooms with King Beds, 2 full baths, a loft area for quiet lounging and extra sleepers, and a beautiful open floor plan that brings mother nature in. The stars are unreal in this area as there is no artificial light, and it is as quiet as can be.
