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.

Never publicly listed for rental before, 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 house in 2010 and have rented it only a few times. We live in Maryland 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 Area

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 unbelievable 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 five weddings thus far and have booked a few more for 2017!

2nd Stay, Just Amazing As The 1st!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this property and again we had a great time! You can't be the views and the proximity to town without actually being having to be in town.

We rented this property for a surprise birthday gathering for my husband and it could not have been more perfect! Simply beautiful. Made for entertaining, well-appointed, and plenty of space for our group of 16. The architecture of the home's great room is something to behold, with amazing views of Ajax and Bridal Veil Falls. Can't imagine anything better. Would definitely stay here again!!

Telluride, CO

House was great!

  • 4 of 5

The house worked out great for our wedding of 60. We were able to fit everyone in comfortably, and plenty of room for caterers and staff too.

The flexibility the rooms gave us were extremely helpful as we were not able to utilize outside as part of our wedding.

Thanks so much!! We got lots of compliments!!

Breathtaking views and a perfectly set up home!

  • 5 of 5

The views, location, and home layout are amazing! We had a large group during our stay and everyone was comfortable and had a very relaxing time. There wasn't a pan or convenience that was missing and we felt well taking care of if we needed anything. I would absolutely stay here again and again and recommend it highly to those looking for a spectacular home in a wonderfully convenient, yet quiet, location! Cheers to Heidi and Chris for setting up such a superb vacation home! Thanks again for everything!!

Collierville, Tennessee

Amazing home, the best views and close to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 45 day stay at this property. When looking for a property our 3 greatest desires were:

1) Outstanding views

2) Close proximity to downtown Telluride.

3) Privacy

This was a big investment for us so we spent more than 40 hours researching homes in the area. It became evident that this house was the best in all 3 categories. There are few homes with a full view of Bridal Veil falls and this one has the best view by far. The restaurants and shops downtown are close enough to ride to on the provided bicycles or a short one mile drive in a car. There are 3 neighbors within sight but the windows to all homes are strategically placed so that you dont feel like anyone can see you almost anywhere in the house.

The home itself is gorgeous, spacious and in very good condition. The photos dont do it justice. Bretley, the housekeeper was polite available if we needed support.

If you want the best views near town this is the house you are looking for.

Beautiful Home, Incredible Views, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible! Spacious with a great layout and incredible mountain views. The location is perfect. It's close to all of the happenings in town but just outside of the busyness so you can relax and enjoy the views when you're at home. I cannot say enough good things about this property!
