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.

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 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.

Calvin Davenport purchased this condo in 2013

Why Calvin Davenport chose Southwest

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.

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!

Quiet spot in the San Juan Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our party of four. Plenty of room in a very scenic location. The property owner responds very quickly to queries. He also spared no expense in the furnishings and notch. The unit was also very clean and well kept. The location is within walking distance to everything in Silverton but is on a very quiet street. I highly recommend this property if you're staying in the San Juans.

Beautiful Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated and spacious. We felt completely at home and Calvin was such a warm and welcoming host. Great location as well - close to restaurants, shops but just far enough off the main street for a nice quiet setting. We are looking forward to visiting/staying again this summer.

Property is very nice

  • 5 of 5

Calvin was great to work with. I made a mistake on my dates and he changed my reservation without any hassle when I realized it. He also took the time to pop off a message letting us know the pass was closed.

The house has been remodeled and they did a fantastic job, it is really nice. They also keep the house very clean. The house is very comfortable. The location is a short walk to main street.

I would highly recommend staying here.

Incredibly wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We loved the rustic but comfortable decor of the 2 bedroom main floor unit and it was perfect for inviting our young adult kids to join us for the weekend. We stayed for a week, loved the mountain views, easy access to the alpine loop, and a downtown that was authentically western. We cooked many meals at home because the kitchen is so well equipped from pots and pans to spices and a gas grill just outside. Will definitely come back. Calvin is just a phone call away and very accommodating. If you love trains like my husband does then the museum is a must and the Silverton Durango railroad stops here and offers stunning vistas.

Peaceful yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us.......we really hated to leave! We loved the quiet back patio while we sat and enjoyed a cold beer, used the grill to make dinner and then sat out front to enjoy the sunset and beautiful view of Kendall Mtn.

The bedrooms were very comfortable and we slept like babies........I personally enjoyed the clawfoot tub for a nice hot bath before dozing off.

We look forward to coming back in the winter to take advantage of Calvin's tour guide experience on the mountain!

Thanks Again..........Hope to see you again soon!
