This beautifully crafted home, located in the Heart of Ouray, is perfectly situated for you, your family and friends to enjoy all that has made the Gem of the Rockies your special place. It's tucked away at the base of one of Town's favorite spots-Vinegar Hill-the Town sledding hill. You'll adore the home’s clever positioning to offer sweeping views across the valley toward the Rock of Ages and Twin Peaks. When you live here, you’ll be able to hike directly from your home to all the popular hiking destinations, such as the Chief Ouray Mine, Cascade Falls, Box Canyon, Perimeter Trail and the Ice Park. Ouray School and important town shops, restaurants and the Hot Springs are an easy walk Downtown. Perhaps most importantly though, you’ll appreciate its privacy and peace. This residential part of town is tucked away from heavier traffic and doesn’t allow short term rentals. So you don’t have the coming and going you’ll find in other parts of town. The home is a masterpiece, and you'll appreciate the ornate interior and exterior finishes. The rooms are spacious and the trim work is beautiful. There are regal lighting fixtures and oversized windows. All these provide warm and rich living space for you to gather with family and friends. The primary entrance is up a grand stairway, leading up one of two paths from the oversized parking areas on the west side of the home. You'll pass manicured gardens and a brick sitting area. The sound of trickling water will draw your attention. Hot spring water has drawn people to Ouray for centuries, and one surfaces adjacent to the property, then works its way through town to the Uncompahgre River. You'll enjoy the sound of this water year-round as you enjoy relaxing on the west facing wrap-around front porch. The front entrance is elegant! You'll be captivated by the winding stairway to the upper level and the open floorplan throughout the main level. To your right you’ll see a beautiful sitting room with built-in fireplace and windows overlooking the Sledding Hill and Town. As you head toward the back, you’ll pass through the spacious dining room ready for all of your guests. From here there’s a large media-family room that’s connected to a quiet and private mountain patio with built-in barbeque, stone walls and patio and manicured gardens. The kitchen is especially regal, with marble counters, high level appliances, walk-in pantry and ornate custom cabinetry. You'll love the flooring and wealth of windows along the eat-in portion of the kitchen and the amount of working surfaces for you to create your culinary masterpieces! The stairway that leads from the entrance to the upper level is a masterpiece as well. It leads to a beautiful space on the front of the home that functions well as an office, library or work-out room. As you move toward the back you'll love the impressive finishes of the guest bathroom and the two large bedrooms along the south side. The rear of the home has an impressive primary suite, with east facing windows and roomy, luxurious bath. The rounded cupola area of this bathroom that overlooks the mountains is an amazing feature that you'll treasure each day! There's a two car oversized garage accesssed from the alley off the east side, and the small garage underneath the front area may be your gear garage, a spot for your ATVs, golf cart or Jeep. This area houses the ultra-efficient natural gas in-floor heating system and offers plenty of additional room for storage. This is a beautifully maintained Southwest Colorado home that's perfect as your year-round home, seasonal escape or weekend retreat. Since the time that you first gazed upon this very special town you've known you'll be here someday. Arrange a time to make this regal home in the Heart of Ouray your new legacy!
