Modern luxuries highlighted by historic charm make this accommodation a special home away from home. This 1540 sf loft is the premiere condominium in the renovation completed in 2010 of the Storyblock Building built in 1893. Located on the sunny southwest corner, this condo now provides a relaxing experience with comfortable furnishings, fully equipped kitchen, and large bathrooms that pamper you. Enjoy views of Mt. Abram and the Box Canyon Bridge or watch the activity of Main Street while enjoying this new condominium in one of Ouray's original buildings.
Follow the Footsteps of the Famous: John Wayne was in Ouray with Glen Campbell and Kim Darby when 'True Grit' was filmed in the late 1960s. They all walked up the stairs and down the hall of the Storyblock Building to the movie production office. You can follow their steps or use the modern convenience of the elevator installed in 2010.
For history buffs, this condominium occupies the space formerly used to store hay for the horses on the ground level which is now O'Toys. Judge William Story's law office was down the hall. Before moving to Ouray and acquiring the Storyblock Building from Louis King, William Story was an Arkansas Supreme Court Justice and a Lieutenant Governor of Colorado.
Not impressed by fame and fortune? Then imagine yourself as a miner in early Ouray or an immigrant from Germany after the war or a young couple starting a new life in the 1960s. All called the Storyblock Building home.
Main Street at Your Doorstep: A step out the door puts you in easy walking distance to Ouray Hot Springs Pool, restaurants, shops, museum, Box Canyon Falls, and Cascade Falls. Several hiking trails begin within a few blocks or you can head up into the mountains for off road adventures in this Switzerland of America. A parade and fireworks highlight the Fourth of July while arts festivals and mining events provide entertainment through the year. Ouray is the ice climbing destination in winter and within driving distance to Telluride and Silverton for skiers and festival goers. Ouray also provides groomed Nordic skiing and snowshoeing trails as well as an ice hockey rink. Both New Years Eve fireworks and Fourth of July fireworks can be enjoyed from the south facing windows.
Modern but Historic: Renovation of the Story Block Building was completed in 2010 so everything about this condominium is new except the charm acquired over the last 120 years and the views of the mountains and Main Street . The condominium features large windows,10 foot ceilings, a reading loft and is finished with green living in mind using hardwood floors, granite and marble countertops, travertine tile, wool carpeting and energy efficient appliances. New wiring, plumbing, heating and a fire sprinkler system and modern amenities add to but do not detract from the experience of staying in one of Ouray's original buildings.
