“One of America’s Finest Homes” – Frontgate Magazine

Frontgate Magazine called 130 Whetstone Vista Drive one of “America’s Finest Homes”.

Situated on a pristine 2.2 acre parcel of land adjacent to the National Forest, the home features absolutely stunning views of the majestic Elk Mountains of Crested Butte.

The site for the house was literally carved out of ranchland and still retains the quality of unencumbered views that it has held since the days when the ranch was operating.

Impressive yet private, the home’s soaring windows and limestone walls compliment the property’s naturally beautiful surroundings, matching the captivating, rock cliff backdrop of Mt. Crested Butte.

The living spaces comprise over 7,800 square feet including a gorgeous living room and dining room, a library, a spacious home theatre featuring a 110 inch screen, a wine cellar, an exercise room and five fireplaces.

The home offers five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Unique features include the three-floor luggage lift, reclaimed oak beamed ceilings and an authentic English pub bar.

The heated decks keep the mountain elements in check.

Architect designed and built by true craftsmen, the home was created with a variety of specially sourced materials from around the world.

A few of the highlights include limestone from Kansas, antique white oak beams and lumber recovered from old Pennsylvania warehouses, walnut harvested from a grove in Pennsylvania and locally produced chandeliers, sconces, handrails, grates and rods made from forged, black wrought iron.

Three antique Indian cooking pots were repurposed into a wash basin and bar sinks. A Chinese elm table was converted into a wash stand in the main powder room.

In the Master Suite, the chandelier from North Carolina was glazed to match wall sconces discovered in a Vermont antique store and the reconfigured rosewood bathroom vanity originates from Taiwan.  In the Master Sitting Room, the teak doors with iron spikes and an original painting from a Portuguese building built during the colonial occupation of India will certainly catch your eye.

The Library features an expansive oak and leather trimmed English library table (circa 1840), a dark oak bookcase with wild game carvings and an oak server with barley-twist legs that echoes the twisting frame of the bookcase.
