The Double Diamond is located in Silverton, Colorado and was completely remodeled in 2014. The home was gutted to gain access to replace all electrical and plumbing. During reconstruction serious consideration was given to protecting the home from the surrounding harsh environment. Some of the most notable upgrades include on demand hot water, high efficiency furnace, spray foam Insulation and new windows. The idea was to create an energy efficient comfortable home. The master bedroom consists of a king bed and a day bed, with a wall mounted flat screen TV. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed (fold-out). There are two living rooms, one with a sleeper sofa and "barn doors" that can be closed in the evening to create a private sleeping space; this room also has a large flat screen TV. The bathroom is modeled after the Victorian Era complete with a "Kohler claw foot bath tub." There Is a full kitchen with a dishwasher and a washer and dryer in the hall. The home Is located one block off the OHV route making it a nice quiet street. The home was made into a duplex, and the owner lives in a separate unit on the second story of the home.

About Calvin Davenport
My name is Calvin Davenport. I grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado and fell in love with Silverton in 2010. I work as a ski guide at Silverton Mountain in the winter and with the Silverton Ambulance Service as an EMT in the summer. With the help of my family we remodeled my Silverton home and made it a duplex. I currently live up above the vacation rental with my fiancee Megan. We are both very involved with the community as she works at the school as a high school teacher and on the ambulance as a paramedic. We love to share this special place with guests and can give great advice on Silverton and the surrounding area.
Calvin Davenport purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Calvin Davenport chose Silverton
We bought this property to save it! It was partially under construction and needed some TLC when I purchased it. Megan and I lived in the shed for the first summer. My dad is a remodeling contractor by trade and I have 15 years experience with him building and remodeling homes. We liked the look of the home from the beginning and knew it had wonderful possibilities. We were just the team for the project.
What makes this Condo unique
When remodeling the home we were able to change all the windows. This was really fun because we could sit inside the house and decide on the exact placement of the new windows to give great views. From the living room, there are views of Kendall Mtn. and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train coming up the valley. In the summer waterfalls on Kendall Mtn. can be heard from the front yard. At the stable across the street, each day shortly before the first train arrives, "Sonny and Cher" are harnessed up to the old stagecoach, you can catch the first ride!

I absolutely love this house!!!!
I have rented many houses but this one tops the list. The original house was gutted and rebuilt by the owner and his father. What a beautiful job they did. They used a lot of repurposed materials so the house has so much character and charm. The house is very comfortable from the beds to the lounging areas. I will most definitely stay here again.
GREAT VIEWS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO ANYTHING IN SILVERTON
This place is on the edge of town and very quiet. Everything we needed to enjoy our stay was provided. Comfortable beds. Owners did a nice job communicating about the impact the recent fire may have on our stay. If we ever go back to Silverton we wouldn't even bother looking for another place. We would book this place in a heartbeat. Nice pictures and art around the house. You can enjoy a cup of coffee on the couch staring out the huge front windows at mountain peeks. Great place.
Trip of a lifetime
This place is perfect for winter sports activities and entertaining clients. So much charm and character! I would definitely stay here again. I would also recommend it to anyone looking for a mountain get away surrounded by spectacular views!
AMAZING Place in a beautiful part of CO
Probably the nicest place with lots of character I've stayed. Calvin was great to deal with and so Nice!
Amazing house! THE place to stay in Silverton with 3 or more friends/family.
Wonderfully renovated/restored house. Great re-purpose and re-use of original trim/door/countertop but with updated fixtures and finish. Plenty of room for 3-5 adults easily. Comfortable everything, and had some sundries stocked helped us in a pinch. The old-school working coffee grinder was awesome. The house is about a 2-3 block walk from all the fun bars/restaurants in town. We will try to book again next winter.
Relaxing, clean and comfy
This home has so much character. The owners detail to high end upgrades left me continually saying WOW! I don’t normally cook much at home but the stove and Mountain views from the kitchen I found myself baking and cooking. Every detail is covered for a comforting stay. Bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Can’t wait for our next stay.
