This unique parcel offers the outstanding opportunity to build your dream-home — it is set in stunning seclusion (abundant wildlife, birding and natural surroundings), yet is just over a mile from the town of Crested Butte (an easy bike ride, pleasant walk or quiet drive). The property includes partial ownership of Peanut Lake; the building envelope overlooks the lake, then encompasses a view of the town and the spectacular cliffs of Mount Crested Butte. To the north the drama continues, with views up Paradise Divide that are simply breath-taking. You can watch the sun shine down and shimmer the lake or the weather arrive from the divide!
This parcel is one of the largest of Trappers Crossing, boasting 57 acres. Trappers allows four buildings in the building envelope, two of which have been erected at this time: the Guest House and the Barn. The Guest House is a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath structure with full kitchen and a one-car garage; broad exterior decks surround much of the second floor. The barn features a large work-area on the first floor with ample storage on the second, and four exterior open stalls on the north side.
Extensive landscaping has taken place around the site in the form of native trees and shrubs, indigenous grass-and-wildflower covered berms, and a variety of rocks, buoying the serene and graceful repose of the experience of simply being there. When wind rouses the grasses, the experience is sublime.
This legacy property must be seen in person to fully understand the breadth of beauty and terrain. Notably, several of town's finest amenities are at your doorstep: Nordic skiing, hiking trails and world-famous bike trails. We invite you to come see this unique opportunity!
