This two-bed, three-bath home at the base of Colorado's highest peak, Mt. Elbert, was originally constructed in 1949, and additions in the 1970's and 1980's followed. The property has so much character including original hardwood floors, a large historic storage outbuilding, a Vermont Casting wood-burning stove, and living room ceiling beams from a Leadville mine. There is a small fenced-in area for pets outside the back door. The house is perfect for entertaining, with both a family room and living room. If you work from home, there is a bonus room with a bathroom nearby, that can be closed off from the rest of the house to ensure maximum privacy. There are many windows throughout from which to watch wildlife and various bird species. Gaze across the street to see several spectacular mountains, including Twin Peaks, Quail Mountain, and Mt. Hope. The upstairs sunroom, beautifully designed for passive solar gain, drinks in the southern sun all winter. Please note: Summer/Fall of 2021: NEWLY PAINTED EXTERIOR, NEW SEPTIC SYSTEM, and NEW ROOF. The property is a short walk to dinner at the Twin Lakes Inn & Saloon in the heart of Twin Lakes Village. Numerous fishing, hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing options lie minutes from the front door. Independence Pass and Aspen are a short drive away during the summer and fall, and Leadville and Buena Vista, both just 20 minutes away, are accessible year-round. This is Colorado mountain living at its best!
