*STORYBOOK ALPINE HOME* Walk or shuttle from lift, Relax in Hot Tub, Curl up by the fireplace, Repeat.
This exquisite home was handmade by the finest woodworker in the valley. From the hand carved front door to the stained glass interior doors, this property is truly a work of art. The log ridge beam weighs over 5,000 pounds, and the joints were hand cut with a chainsaw, 30 feet off the ground! The open floor plan of the living, dining and kitchen areas are designed around a river rock fireplace. The great room is a two story, open space with a giant picture window that frames Mt. Crested Butte. It has a wood burning fireplace, and deck facing Mt. Crested Butte.
The gourmet kitchen features unfitted cabinets, a huge butcher block island with a prep sink, pot rack, and bar stool seating, all handmade. There are granite counter tops, a gas cook top with six burners surrounded by river rock, a farm sink, and a dining room table that seats 6, with two folding chairs available for additional seating. A small deck right off the kitchen has a convenient BBQ grill.
The deck and hot tub seats 6 with a view of Mt. Crested Butte.
