Retreat from city life with your own private mountain paradise! Nestled on over ten acres of a historic mining claim, you'll love the panoramic mountain views and total privacy. Inside this incredibly loved and well-maintained home, the soaring vaulted ceilings and wood-burning fireplace create an airy and bright living space. Enjoy functional features such as the wooden spiral staircase, as well as recently updated windows and doors. Outside, newer Hardie Board and metal siding offer an attractive yet fire-resistant exterior while paying homage to the property's rich history. You'll also have an attached carport and shed built into the natural stone. While this home runs off-grid, it is fully equipped with solar and propane power, plus a backup generator and new high-efficiency furnace. This adorable mountain home has all you need to live off the grid full time or simply enjoy a quick getaway. Nearby access to I-70 offers an easy ride into Idaho Springs, ski resorts, Denver and DIA.
