Imagine a place where you can mingle with Olympians and extreme athletes, be surrounded by panoramic views, fish off your sailboat in the summer, throw on your skis in the winter, and warm yourself by the fire at night – all without ever leaving the mountain or the comforts of home. Of course we find this in Crested Butte, a hop jump and skip away from Big D. Designed by architect Daniel J. Murphy, this exceptional ski-in/ski-out offering, is a true legacy estate, located just 24 miles south of Aspen. A scenic car drive through the exquisite Maroon Bells will have you at Aspen in a few hours, or in the summer make the 12-mile hike right from your property, via the postal route.
Tucked away slope-side in the idyllic town of Crested Butte, Colorado, you’ll enjoy 6,478 square feet of living space with ample room for family gatherings or hosting a large corporate retreat.

The foodie in your life will marvel at the gourmet kitchen, outfitted with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, granite counters, large center island and breakfast bar. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for majestic views, while gleaming hardwoods and beamed vaulted ceilings create a grand place to unwind.
From fresh powder on the slopes, to gold medal fishing in the summer, you can ski, golf, hike, bike, sail, rock climb, para-glide, hunt, fish, or snowshoe to your heart’s desire, with seasonal activities for everyone. Lewis Shaw’s Wilder on the Taylor is not far, located on the best bass fishing river in the U.S. Perhaps you’re interested in a culinary affair? Crested Butte offers a multitude of dining options. Make a quick jaunt into town for Django’s Restaurant & Wine Bar and savor award-winning small plates inspired by the South of France, or go casual and grab a hot slice from local pizza joint, Secret Stash.
