A distinguished five bedroom three and one-half bath residence situated with privacy and solitude on 36 acres encompassing both banks of the Slate River and a short 2/10 mile walk to the northwest side Butte Avenue neighborhood and the dining, shopping and arts facilities of the Town of Crested Butte. The 3, 853 sq. ft. residence was designed by architect Eric Rymshaw of Fury Design of Philadelphia. The style of the home is the Crested Butte vernacular of individual, combined sections. Features include a gourmet cherry wood and maple kitchen with Sub-Zero and Viking appliances and a separate, sunny breakfast room situated off the kitchen that captures the morning sunrise with views south to nearby Crested Butte. A light and bright sun room opens to the south-facing deck with views to Town and the Slate River riparian wetlands. The living room features vaulted 12/12 lofty ceiling, 2-story dry-stacked natural rock wood burning fireplace, wide-board oak floors, Douglas fir timber trusses and six 12' tall windows with scenic views to Paradise Divide and across the Slate River to Mt. Crested Butte. The home is designed with the living area on the first level and 3 bedrooms in the north section. The master bedroom has scenic views over the adjacent conservation protected Land Trust acreage to Paradise Divide and the Elk Mountain horizon. The second floor master includes a generous walk-in closet, hardwood floors and en-suite master bath. An upstairs family room, an office space with built-in cherry wood desk, and a library with built-in shelving provide additional gathering space and work spaces. Two additional bedrooms and a full bath are situated in a quiet and private space on the other side of the living area. The home is furnished with Stickely inspired furnishings and extensive Western art and collectibles. Infrastructure includes an attached, oversized, heated 2-car garage, a dedicated snow-melt system for the concrete driveway, a 5, 000 gallon water storage tank, whole-house fire suppression system and whole-house water filtration system along with double heating boilers powering the in-floor heating system. The exterior is constructed with practical and durable redwood and cedar siding and protected by architectural metal roofing. There is a craftsman-built play house in the yard complete with fireman's pole. The south-facing deck and patio affords views to the cottages and lights of the Crested Butte Historic District and over the Slate River Valley with a commanding view of Mt. Crested Butte. A nearby meadow viewed from the deck is a frequent, seasonal, grazing meadow for a herd of elk. For hikers and Nordic skiers, the Woods Walk Trail, the Lower Loop Trail and the Red Lady Nordic trail to Magic Meadows, in the winter, are just steps off the property. The lot includes 500' of both banks of the Slate River, lengthy log rail fencing and has the maintained Red Lady Loop Nordic ski trail in the winter. This legacy property, adjacent to conservation land, in an elevated setting, private and secluded with forest and meadow, provides a magnificent, spacious home with dramatic scenic views in a very prized location and truly walkable to Crested Butte.
