About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Completely Remodeled Cozy Home

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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 girlfriend Megan. We are both very involved with the community as she works at the school and on the ambulance as a paramedic. I love to share this special place with people and can give great advice on Silverton and the surrounding area.

Why the Owner Chose Silverton, CO, USA:
I bought this property to save it! It was partially under construction and needed some TLC when I purchased it. 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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!
