This residential offering includes a 5 bedroom home + the adjacent building site that may be sold after purchase or utilized to create a family compound by building a secondary residence if desired. Welcome to the historic Malensek Home that is located in the quiet northwest section of Crested Butte and situated on an elevated corner lot. The Malensek family owned the ranchland that Crested Butte Mountain Resort calls home today. Take a walk back in time as you enter this classic 1920’s home that has been meticulously maintained by the current owners. The full length, enclosed front porch, serves as the nostalgic gateway to this unparalleled residence that spans over 3,000 SF of living space. Upon entering the spacious living room, the combination of soaring ceilings and plethora of grand windows, creates a bright and airy setting. The main floor primary suite is complete with dressing room, which might also serve as an office plus a private bath. At the rear of the main level, you’ll enter the generous kitchen where you are greeted with jaw-dropping views of Mt. Crested Butte and the surrounding mountains through an expansive wall of windows. There is plenty of space for your dining table in the kitchen, as well as access out onto the back deck through the rear coat room where the half-bath resides. Dual staircases, one at the front of the home and one to the rear, provide access to a finished basement that is complete with 2 guest rooms, full bath, laundry and rec room. The basement also provides extensive storage space. On the second floor you’ll enjoy two spacious guest rooms with an over-sized, common bath. Surrounded by mature trees and beautifully maintained flower beds, this elevated site has some of the most premium views available in town. There’s even an outhouse from days gone by located on the rear of the property. The home is offered with the adjacent building site complete with garage. Develop the neighboring parcel to complement the existing home or keep as open-space to maintain your privacy. Crested Butte is known to many as “The Last Great Colorado Ski Town”, however this historic residence keeps alive the memory of the early days of mining and ranching, which were the foundations on which this community was built. This unique offering includes the main residence at 29 Maroon plus the addition building site at 25 Maroon. The current owners always intended to build a “guest house” or secondary residence on the adjacent building site to accommodate friends and family, making the property a full family compound. However, the owner, who had carefully restored the main house and surrounding grounds, was elected to the United States Senate and the family’s plans changed, leaving further development to the next owner.
