209 Whiterock Avenue
About This Property
Originally built in 1882 and completely remodeled in 2003, this iconic historic property enjoys an incredible heritage and equally compelling location in the desirable west end of town. Located just a few blocks to Elk Avenue and Crested Butte’s nightlife, shopping and dining, 209 Whiterock embodies the in-town lifestyle. The free ski resort shuttle picks up across the street and the Green Lake trailhead, groomed nordic tracks, the sledding hill and the ice rink are literally a 30-second walk from this spot. The Woods Walk trailhead is just a few blocks to the west.
Beautiful reclaimed beams, ceilings, wood floors and wainscoting add warmth and grace to the 1st level of the home. Main level highlights include a well appointed kitchen with beautiful cabinets, a center island, tile tops, recessed lighting, a gas range and farm sink. The living room features a wood burning stove and the guest bedroom includes a full bath outfitted with an old style claw foot tub and modern shower. The huge mudroom includes plenty of storage for skis and gear, a double sink and a full sized washer and dryer. Upstairs you’ll find the master bedroom with a private deck and a separate in-law suite with attached bedroom, a modest kitchen, dining and sitting area and a bathroom with a steam shower.
Amazing wildflower gardens, mature trees, a Bonsai garden, a hot tub garden, paver and flagstone patios and a cool stone waterfall feature grace this offering in an eye popping fashion. The view of Mt. Crested Butte from the east patio captivates and the big lawn suits heated bocce and badminton tournaments with room to spare.
The property comprises .175 acres or 2.5 Town of Crested Butte lots making it larger than most parcels in town. The huge historic barn/garage was recently renovated and features a new slab floor, shelved gear storage, a shop and room for a vehicle. The garage is accessed by the alley in the rear of the property. A third structure, the historic shed on the eastern side of the property, was also rebuilt offering weatherproof storage, a shop or perhaps a ski and bike tuning room. There is also ample off-alley parking in front of the garage.
