5300 sq Ft. Luxury Western Lodge with Breathtaking Views in Ideal location in Crested Butte.

Just minutes to town and minutes to skiing this six bedroom six and a half bath home with expansive acreage is the ultimate get away. This exquisitely appointed home is located a quick bike ride away from town but you will feel like you are worlds away with the tranquil setting and panoramic views.

Located up the Slate River valley this secluded estate will take you away from it all the minute the private gate opens. Winding up the paved drive to the heated two car garage you will pass the stable and “Fox Den”, optional additional three bedroom guest house, all with expansive views of Paradise Divide, the town of Crested Butte and unobstructed views of the Slate River.

Whether it is fresh powder or world-renowned wild flowers, endless outdoor activities are available in all seasons with direct access to the Lupine Trail for hiking and biking opportunities or a quick drive to Mount Crested Butte for world class skiing.

At the end of the day, the full wrap around deck with custom railings is the perfect place to enjoy dinner while watching the infamous Blue Heron rookery or the sun set down the valley.

Walking into the custom built professionally decorated, classic mountain home you will find yourself in a large great room with 25’ ceilings and a full two story natural stacked rock fireplace flanked by windows showcasing the unbelievable views. Completely paneled with wide plank Cypress and reclaimed barn timbers imported from Georgia, this lodge will immediately feel like the ultimate western retreat.  A large flatscreen tv with Apple TV is also in this room.

Directly off the great room is the dining room and chef appointed gourmet kitchen with top of the line stainless appliances including a Viking range, Sub Zero refrigerator, dual dishwashers, soapstone countertops and a butler’s pantry with a wine refrigerator and every appliance or apparatus you might need. Views from the dining table or the adjacent deck with built in grill ensure wildlife sightings and the ultimate mountain scene.

All bedrooms in this home are uniquely designed and appointed with high end linens and amenities. The primary bedroom with a king bed is located on the main floor and boasts a 16’ two-story vaulted ceiling, complete with a large ensuite bathroom with a steam shower, walk in closet, private seating and work area. Amenities on this floor include a full size washer and dryer in the mud room and a guest powder room.

Upstairs from the great room are two ensuite queen bedrooms with sitting areas and “the rookery” a wonderful kid hideaway with twin beds. All have mountain views.

The lower level unfolds into a large game room complete with a pool table, games, wet bar, large screen tv (with Apple TV) and another beautiful wood burning fireplace with flanking windows. Off of this main room are two oversized junior suites each with a queen bed, private bath and walk in closet. Amenities on this floor include an exercise room with a Peloton bike and a home office.  The house is also equipped with a Sonos system to play your favorite tunes.

Finally, grab a towel and walk out this lower level to the newly installed hot tub (July 2022) perched over the mountain side where you can soak away the day as you gaze out at the stunning views.
