About: Lucky to have called Crested Butte home for many years! The streets weren't paved when I got here....it was dusty... and a little wilder.. Still stoked to explore the Gunnison Valley & the surrounding wilderness. The sheer amount of terrain around here means you could never hike/ bike/paddle, ski or ever explore it all. Living a healthy lifestyle of skiing, and biking, and riding a townie cruiser bike around town is a joy.. Being a part of a small mountain community. Going to Paonia in the summer and pick fruit to preserve for winter. Mmmmmm Best peaches, cherries, apricots, pears and apples, ever!!! Raised my sons here, in a small town environment, where they knew everybody, and could ride their bikes around town safely. Snowboarding on the mountain, fishing in summer The local arts community is wonderful. It's a great place for kids. Good townspeople....
Why Crested Butte, CO, USA:
I bought this property after renting it for years. It had been in a local family. Lots of history. Every beam is hand hewn, from Irwin, Lily Lake area, every nail hand-poured--- buried deep under the drywall now... Crested Butte is a magical, beautiful place. I wanted to put down roots. Even back then there weren't many places to rent.... It was serendipity. My sons grew up here. All the kids would gather at our house because it was centrally located. Also, I want SUN in winter and this house has lots of it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Joe Sedmak recalled that this home was moved to this site from the bench, where the CF&I big mine was located. It was an office for the mine... and one part of it was once a beauty parlor down the street, I've heard. It's in the core of Historic Crested Butte. The location can't be beat. You can catch the free bus the the ski resort right on the corner--steps from the door! This house has great views, is close to the grocery store, and gets a lot of sun and light in the winter. I love the kitschy fruit tiles in the kitchen, (with pink bull-nose trim), and old fruit prints and plates on the walls. Grandma! The dining nook in the kitchen; high ceilings. Original hardwood floors. Big yard with trees and flowers I planted on berms that I had Al Maunz put there. The bay window in the living room by the stove, great for curling up with a good book. Great views of Mount Crested Butte, Gibson's ridge, and the Red Lady, (Mt. Emmons). Huge yard. Everything that was custom done to remodel the interior of the house makes it unique. Original artwork throughout. It has interesting angles and custom wood trim everywhere and a catwalk, (with railings), between the two upstairs bedrooms. Big tub. Cute, adorable, one of a kind, bright and airy. Unique. Historic, central.
