426 Elk Avenue is an incredible combination of historical significance, modern brilliance and detailed craftsmanship. Since 1900, this iconic house has witnessed life in the heart of Downtown Crested Butte and has been a centerpiece of the community. The home only recently realized its full potential through a complete and loving renovation; no detail was overlooked in the re-creation. Using Wabi Sabi, a Japanese method that embraces imperfections as the inspiration and method, the builder, owner and interior designer collaborated to create a home that exudes refinement in every detail. It is the perfect combination of mountain luxury and historic charm. The living room showcases the narrow slatted reclaimed Oak flooring, vaulted ceilings welcoming in the beautiful Colorado sunshine and stone surround gas fireplace. The custom bookshelf is a perfect accent to the living room and is complete with a rolling iron ladder. The builder isn't just a builder, he is an artisan and salvaged wood from the renovation to build custom features including the beautiful built-in dining table. The kitchen boasts lunation quartzite slab countertops, custom painted cabinets, stunning black AGA appliances and open shelving made from reclaimed wood. The primary bedroom allows you to relax as soon as you walk in the door thanks to the elegant upholstered accent wall, natural lighting and subtle yet refined furnishings. The first floor bathroom has custom hand painted fired clay tile in the walk-in shower and a floating vanity with hand crafted cement vessel sink. Upstairs, the guest bedroom is equally charming with gorgeous wood beam accents, custom built furniture including floating nightstands and a walk-in closet. The second bathroom includes Belgian Bluestone flooring, a handmade vanity crafted from reclaimed wood, double sinks and hand painted fired clay tile in the shower. Perched above the living room is a spacious loft area that works for extra sleeping space and the perfect work from home location with a great view of Mt. Crested Butte. The owner had the brilliant idea to add a door from the loft into the bathroom for easy access. Enjoy the health and wellness benefits of the hidden infrared sauna and shower with Belgian Bluestone throughout. The exterior features a coveted front porch elevated above Elk Avenue, detailed landscaping, charming iron fence and private flagstone patio in the back. Finally, the newly built accessory dwelling includes one bedroom, one bathroom, cement flooring with in-floor heat and a generous loft. This is your chance to own an iconic piece of Crested Butte history that is brand new and completely turn-key, just bring your clothes, bikes and favorite vintage.
