Property description

New 2240 Sq Ft Mountain Home with 3 BR 2 Bath, open Kitchen, DR and LR featuring a large stone fireplace flat screen TV and beautiful furnishings, the main feature being a massive window showcasing the Continental Divide, mountains such as Gothic, Crested Butte Mountain, Snodgrass, Teocalli, and Whetstone in addition to the evening valley lights.
The Master located upstairs has a king bed, separate sitting area and 45' flat screen. There is a private deck capturing the views and the morning sun. The master bath has a 2 person shower with steam for those who enjoy the warmth after a day of snowshoeing, skiing or hiking right from your door. The master bath also has a double vanity.
On the main floor, the 2 remaining bedrooms have queen beds, nightstands, antique dressers, good reading lamps and flat screen TV's. The second bath will be shared by those 2 bedrooms and is accessible to the living area.
Downstairs is totally heated with a one car garage, wonderful gym with Precor eliptical and recumbent bike, and a Stairmaster PT4000 as well as a complete set of weights, bars and racks. There is a 50' flatscreen in the gym as well. The downstairs study is next to the gym and does have a large antique desk, a new queen mattress on a great leather sofabed, also with a 42' flatscreen TV. Lastly, downstairs is a complete laundry area next to the heated mudroom with built in ski lockers and seating to remove boots.
We are sports fans and as you can see, we have 6 flatscreens all with Directv. Sometimes it is nice to retreat to the privacy of your bedroom, gym, or the study and enjoy the tube or not.
Outside we have a screen porch and massive deck system with a 6 person hot tub, northern views to the mountains and The Divide, west views to close high mountains and the sunset and to the south, you will see meadows rising to Red Mountain and groups of mule deer and occasional elk with our family campsite and log chairs taking advantage of the monster views. A year round creek runs along the building site and in the spring and early summer, sounds like Niagra Falls.
We love our home, the serenity and easy access to town, golf, skiing, horses. For those unfamiliar with year round living at 10000 ft, the road maintenance is excellent as is the snow removal at the house and the winter 4 wheel drive or front wheel drive at the very least.
On those days when we may not go to the mountain to ski, we will work out in the gym and either snowshoe, cross country ski or just take a walk around the plowed roads and enjoy the views.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I first saw Crested Butte in 1994, I have owned several types of properties but prefer the 'wilderness' setting with easy access to town and all it offers. The silence around our home is deafening, the very first night we went out to the deck, closed our eyes and just listened to the nature around us. It is unforgettable. Missy and me

Why the Owner Chose Crested Butte, CO, USA:
In Crested Butte there are so many lovely properties, each with their owners' reasons. I don't have the words to describe the feeling when we are there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love this property for family and good friends to enjoy the fireplace inside or campfire outside. The activities are endless and it just brings us all reviewing photos for this ad, I am reminded of how we love the campfire with multiple photos of friends and family all big smiles with the most incredible mountains and ever changing sky in the background
