Gorgeous Colorado mountain home in the historic mining town of Rico. It is finished and furnished in an extremely tasteful and luxurious 'mountain chic' style. While Rico is 25 miles from Telluride, the distance is more than compensated for by the stunning high alpine setting at 9,000 ft. There is a view from every room in the house. It is quite large and perfectly suited to a large extended family.
The house is at the end of a long driveway with a very private and fully fenced backyard. It has three levels of living areas. The main floor has living, dining, kitchen and media rooms. The living room ceiling is two stories high with a thermostat controlled gas wood stove. The upper level has a beautiful master suite with vaulted ceilings plus a beautiful queen-size bed. The master bath has a slate floor and features a rock steam shower, jacuzzi tub, towel warmer and a walk in closet. The second bedroom on the upper level also has vaulted ceilings and a full sized bed.
Bedrooms three and four, on the lower level of the house both have full sized beds. Bedroom 5 is a kid’s room with 3 twin/full bunk beds.
There is a sunny back deck and a covered front porch. There is also a covered back porch overlooking a lush lawn area.
The region's finest restaurant, the 'Argentine Grill' is just around the corner. Don't miss Chef Eamonn O'Hara's cooking.
Rico is easily accessible from Dolores, CO or Telluride on Highway 145. Durango and Montrose airports are both about 90 miles from Rico. Telluride Airport is 28 miles away.
The Dolores River is visible from all levels of the house.
