A Free bus shuttle runs every 15 minutes to Mt. Crested Butte Village; at the base area of the best extreme ski mountain in Colorado.

In summer ride the lift and hike the peak or mountain bike the trails.
In the summer and fall and winter, enjoy the oversize yard.
Surrounded by berms with aspen & pine trees, wildflowers and perennials. Fenced in to the street, with a shed and alley on the south side. Its is quiet and private.
This house, though altered, is representative of the dwellings erected in Crested Butte during the coal mining era, as reflected in the gable roof, double hung-sash and multi-light windows, and unadorned exterior. (According to the Town of CB)
This unique home is only one block from the grocery store, liquor store, video box, fine dining establishments, and a movie theater, Two blocks from Elk Ave with more wonderful restaurants cafes, and shops: which are also on the free shuttle route.
The Nordic Center is also only two short town blocks and is known for their world class Nordic trails. They rent all necessary equipment . They also have a covered ice skating rink, sledding hill, in winter, and a skateboard park -- open in the summer and fall.

All green amenities offered on the block.
It gets cool here at night year round, I recommend bringing warm clothes.
And slippers are a good call for the tile floors.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1991

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.. I am 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 my cruiser around town has been 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. They grew up 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 here 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.
