About this property

A rare piece of history nestled in the heart of the exquisitely beautiful historic City of Ouray. Built originally in 1890 it has been lovingly upgraded by the current owner who has called this special place home for 47 years. Children have grown up hiding and playing in its wonderful nooks and crannies, walking to school, swimming in the Ouray pool, hiking the magnificent trails and experiencing a small town way of life that is quickly disappearing. When you enter this proud Victorian the first thing you see are the magnificent Parquet floors in the entry and parlor. Two Dutch fireplaces, original to the house, are one of a kind. Off the entry is a perfect office overlooking 7th Avenue and all the activity that is Ouray. The formal dining room has a wonderful bay window and opens conveniently to the remodeled kitchen. The kitchen itself is huge and is perfectly sized to hold family and guests who always seem to congregate in this one special spot and enjoy the view of Courthouse Mountain to the west. The Carrera marble countertop next to the stove is a treasure from the Nichol Smith Grocery Store in Ouray. The living room opens to the east and overlooks the magnificent gardens. Its wood burning stove is a welcome friend on a winters night. Upstairs are three bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom occupies the entire east wing. Large windows let in the wonderful light and, most especially, an incredibly beautiful view of the Amphitheater, which greets you the minute you wake up in the morning! The third floor is a bonus space with a huge storage room plus a perfect hideout room and playroom for your children or grandchildren!! Rounding off the home is a south facing over sized laundry room which also houses the hot tub and doubles as a very convenient mud room. The two car detached garage has been a much loved workshop for years and can accommodate cars instead of the saws and lathes! And the grounds! The home is sitting on a corner and occupies two full city lots and portions of two others. The openess this setting offers is unequaled. The yard is shaded by numerous apple trees, a cherry tree, magnificent pines and is home to an exquisitely beautiful array of flowers all summer long. Combined with the lawn, the yard cries for a comfortable chair and a good book! A one of a kind Victorian, an easy walk to everything Ouray has to offer; a vibrant, unique community of people who look out for each other, a lifestyle that is hard to find these days. All combined, something very special indeed.
