Property description

Welcome to our lovely house on Elk Ave in the historic centre of Crested Butte dating back from 1890. The house is located at the quiet end of Elk Avenue opposite the book and coffee shop. It has a lovely grassy garden with mature trees, hammock and deck chairs to sit and watch the world go by. It has off street parking. BBQ. Many hiking and biking trails are a few minutes walk from the house. After a long day hiking or biking, visit one of the many great restaurants and bars only a minute walk away. The cinema, bakery, shuttle bus to the ski base are 2 minutes walk. One block from the Four Way Stop free shuttle bus stop makes getting to the mountain simple.
The house has original oak floors throughout. We purchased the house in spring 2014 and have replaced all the furniture, beds and mattresses. There is a king bed in the master bedroom and 2 twins that can be converted to a king in the second bedroom. There is a magnificent reclaimed teak day bed in the lounge which can be used as an additional twin bed.
The house has a flat screen TV, wifi and plenty of board games.

Year Purchased: 2014

About: My family and I first visited Crested Butte in 2006. We immediately fell in love with the area and have been coming every winter since. We have lived in the British Virgin Islands for the last 26 years so are used to living in a small community. We fell in love with the uniqueness of the town and the friendliness of the people. But is only took one visit in the summer to be totally hooked. As soon as this lovely house in the centre of the historic district came up for sale I knew I would be spending a lot more time in Crested Butte!

Why Crested Butte, CO, USA:
It's all about location. Being located on Elk Avenue, life is so easy. Stroll across the road in the morning to either Rumours or Camp 4 for a cappuccino and fresh baked pastry. Don't worry about driving in the evening after a night out at any one of the huge selection of great restaurants and bars. The atmosphere in town is something really special. The local farmers market is just at the end of the road, the Arts Festival, Mardi Gras parade, Big Air on Elk, 4th July Parade are all right there. The local bus stop to the mountain is 1/2 a block away. The cinema, 2 blocks away. Crested Butte is such a unique and friendly town that being right in the center makes being here all the more special. Many hiking trails are within a short walk of the house, free buses access many more trails. In the winter there are free buses to the ski slopes and many of the nordic trails start a few minutes walk from the house. Crested Butte is such a special town!
