Car: Recommended

This home is the first luxury home built in the area. it is older, but has been totally renovated in top end finishings, and the location and view are unbeatable. You sit at the edge of Shadow Mtn. Lake where the river enters the lake and look across the lake to undeveloped National Park and the Continental Divide. it is truly a Billion Dollar view. It also has a 900 sq foot deck, where you can sit and regularly watch moose walk by and deer and elk and Osprey and Eagles, too. It is totally loaded and equipped. It is 2700', plus a 900sq. ft. deck, plus lawn to the lake, where we offer FREE canoes, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: I am the Great-granddaughter of Gus and Anna Spitzmiller, who arrived in Grand Lake in the early 1900's. Gus first mined gold and silver with the famous Squeaky Bob Wheeler, at Lulu City, and then became a Master plumber for the village of Grand Lake. His wife, Anna, was the 1st to have running water in Grand County. I was raised here--at 8400+ feet-- and educated at Kent-Denver Country Day in Denver. I am now a retired attorney, rebuilding and renovating my family property in G.L., and fishing in Baja in the Winters.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake, CO, USA:
My Grandmother Barbara Spitzmiller, who married Gordon Spitzmiller ( Gus and Anna's son) used to own a dairy farm that covered this property and stretched across what is now Shadow Mountain Lake. When they made Shadow Mountain Reservoir, all of a sudden, Grandma owned the most beautiful lake and river front property around. It didn't really ever make up for the fact that they took her land to build a lake, but we love it, as the generations pass! She gave the double lot this house sits on to my Dad, as a kid, because it was his favorite spot for fishing, and it constituted the best 2 lots around. The home faces the Colo. river where it enters Shadow Mountain lake, that connects to Grand Lake, via a channel. After he married, he built this house. As kids we helped gather every stone on all 3 floor- to- ceiling rock fireplaces. The upstairs, i.e. the main section, is what is available for rent. It is divided now with a wood floor over the staircase for privacy--and on-site managers in an apt. downstairs. Looking out the floor to ceiling picture windows on the entire lake side of the house ( but especially the picture windows from the Master bed), makes you forget it still needs exterior paint, back-side ( non-lake-side) some landscaping and some new flooring ( under those Persian rugs, etc.). This place is truly special and incomparable in view or location. Come take advantage of the 1/2 price rates until next year when all the 'Pretty-up' is done.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view, the floor to ceiling windows, the floor to ceiling rock fireplaces, the huge deck--and the view!!! fully remodeled--new floor coverings--hardwood, really fine carpets, antiques, etc. The free firewood, and canoes. NEW WOOD FLOORS, CARPET, PAINT, ROOF, and more. The wildlife viewing, and canoeing, fishing, boating, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, etc. Did I mention the view? ha. Ha.
