About the property

5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath 6000+ sq ft home with 2000+ of wrap around porch

Mountain comfort and modern sensibility come together in this beautiful, thoughtfully designed residence, located on Telluride’s east end, less than 1.5 miles from downtown. Sitting high above town with perfect views from every window, you can’t help but take in Ingram Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Mt. Ajax and hear the San Miguel River rushing below. The expansive views can be enjoyed all year round with the abundant use of glass and 2000+ sq. ft. of porch that wraps around the entire home. Utilizing reclaimed wood from an 1800’s Seattle factory and cabinet grade cherry for the flooring, the home is replete with light and the golden hue of custom made fir wainscoting. With an open floor plan, 25 foot ceilings and a massive stone fireplace, the home is spacious, comfortable and warm. Invite your family and friends to prepare meals together in the oversized kitchen and take advantage of both a gas and charcoal grill right off the kitchen deck to help with meal preparation. And when it’s time to wine and dine, set the table for 12 at the dining table and 6 at the kitchen table-there is plenty of room for everyone.

When you are not skiing, hiking, snowboarding, cycling, going to a festival or taking a yoga class, relax in the main floor second family room with a big screen TV and wet bar and send the kids downstairs to the rec room for Wii and board games. Or train the high powered telescope on Ajax and see your own climbing party on their way to the top! And, if you really need some Zen time, roll out your mat in the circular perch room and practice your meditation and poses to soft music piped through the house wide audio system.

Five bedrooms make the sleeping accommodations easy for a group. The master suite features a king bed facing a grove of aspens, an en suite bathroom with marble shower, large soaking tub, his and her double sinks, walk in closet, office and sitting area, and a balcony for taking in the stunning sunrises and incredible night skies. The second bedroom on the upper level features bunk beds and the third bedroom has a queen. These two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom with double sinks. The fourth bedroom has a queen bed, an en suite bathroom, two sitting areas, large closet and private access to the outside. The fifth bedroom, located on the lower level, features a queen bed, walk in closet, an en suite bathroom and access to the outside through French doors.

To handle your large group, the home also features a two car garage, additional parking for four more vehicles and a storage area for your extra gear. Bikes, sleds and tubes are available for your use.

This extremely private residence perfectly balances privacy with proximity to downtown Telluride. This residence has become a favorite with a past few families, with each one coming back for multiple stays.

About Heidi Busch & Chris Baker

We built this home in 2010. We live on the East Coast and can't wait to live in Telluride full time!

Heidi Busch & Chris Baker purchased this house in 2010

Why Heidi Busch & Chris Baker chose Telluride

Our location is the perfect place in the Telluride area. All the locals say we have the best spot in all of town. Just a couple minutes walk from downtown, it's quiet even during the largest festivals. And since it sits up on the sunny-side of the hill, the bright, clear views are second to none!

What makes this house unique

The perfect combination of location, views, size and an unbelievably peaceful space to relax and enjoy what Telluride has to offer.

The house is also a great place for weddings and family gatherings. We've hosted ten weddings thus far and have booked a few more for 2018!

Christmas wonderland

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful . Just far enough out of the village to feel like you are alone in the mountains but close enough to walk to the city. Enough room for our whole family . We could all sit down together for meals . The dryer broke but the caretaker came and took our wet and dirty clothes and brought them back on Christmas Eve .

Beautiful wedding weekend in Telluride

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house in an incredible location. Conveniently close to town but private with a one of a kind view of the canyon and falls. The space worked wonderfully for accommodating our wedding party, and for our wedding reception in the large great room and wrap around porch. Our family and friends were blown away by the beauty that Telluride and the house offered for our day. I also can't say enough good things about Bretley (the house caretaker). The house was beautifully set up when we arrived and she was very responsive and helpful with the transformation for the wedding, the clean-up and anything we needed in between.

Gorgeous Views with Spacious Accomadations

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed here and loved the floor plan, especially the basement for our little ones to play in. There were board games and toys too! Would recommend for large or small families. The caretaker was easily accessible as well.

Beautiful view with lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic! The house was clean, spacious, and had the perfect view of the Bridal Veil water fall. Heidi was easy to communicate and her house manager, Bretley, was helpful every step of the way. I would definitely recommend this property and use it again!
