About This Property

If you’re a fan of sites like Dwell or Houzz and enjoy staying current on the latest trends in functional and beautiful home design then you’ll appreciate everything about the offering at 215 Lower Allen Road. Located near to the confluence of the East River and Cement Creek, 215 Lower Allen enjoys incredible views, Colorado sunlight and 200 ft. of private Cement Creek frontage….all on a nicely landscaped 1.27 acre parcel. Crested Butte architect Andrew Hadley, top rated builder Randy Swift, craftsman Michael Villanueva and local interior design firm Interni collaborated on the creation of this amazing home, completing it in 2005. The house is constructed of Enercept structural insulated panels (SIP) and includes many energy efficient features.

The functionally creative and open interior features awe inspiring contemporary lines, stunning banks of clerestory windows and a unique barrel vault ceiling above the main living room. Once you step inside the home, you will be impressed by the artful integration of wood trim and beams, dry stack rock detail, flooring of cork, slate, stamped concrete and cherry hardwood and cool designer lighting throughout. The home flows so well from space to space, you may not realize it at first but virtually all of the 4,121 sf. is located on the main level. In a community filled with split living, two-story homes requiring stair climbing, 215 Lower Allen is a refreshing option. Then again, not too many homes this close to the town of Crested Butte enjoy a parcel with this much elbow room.

Additional features include an entertainer kitchen designed and appointed with the chef in mind and a dining room under a gorgeous raised ceiling with accent lighting. The antique English pocket doors complete the well equipped home office and the cozy family room/den includes a gas fireplace, a wet bar and gorgeous media and literature built-in cabinets. The master suite is trimmed in cherry flooring and the attached master bath is dressed in stylish glass, tile and granite. And, yes, there is a spacious steam shower too!

The home’s SIP construction, high R-value insulation, passive solar design, quality windows and efficient in-floor radiant heat will keep you and your family living in comfort throughout the year. As a bonus, the home’s domestic hot water supply is boosted by the roof top mounted, solar water heater system.

The trout fishing can be good in Cement Creek and the access to more fishing on the East River is available via private easement across the road.  And, when you are done fishing for the day, the custom fire pit located next to the creek will keep everyone entertained during those long summer evenings.
