It is hard to believe that a private retreat exists so close to the center of the Town of Crested Butte, but 622 Elk provides just that. Don't be fooled by the exterior - this house has lots of space, 5 bedrooms, two living areas and three decks! Also, the location on Elk Avenue may seem busy, but the backyard truly is a special oasis. Bordering Pitzker Field and the tennis courts, you will enjoy open space on three sides of this home. Your elevated great room provides wonderful views of Crested Butte Mountain and up Paradise Divide from inside or from decks on the front and back of the home. The updated kitchen with large pantry allows you to prepare for entertaining with a nice dining area and comfortable living room complete with a kiva style gas fireplace. The primary suite on this level is a cozy space with an updated bathroom. The remaining four bedrooms are downstairs along with two baths and a media room. This home is made for the art and music aficionado with lighting to accent your special pieces and a King Systems sound system throughout the house and backyard. The ADU is a wonderful space with 2 bedrooms, full bath and a feeling of separation from the main house due to the unique shape of the lot. The income of over $26,000 per year from the rental goes a long way towards a mortgage or other expenses. A storage shed and large basement storage room provide plenty of room for your outdoor equipment. Just a block from the 4-way stop, access to skiing, restaurants and shopping is easy. During the summer, you will especially enjoy spending time outside among the incredible flower beds, mature trees, and shady lawn. Instead of the cold feeling of the new mountain modern homes, you will find 622 Elk Avenue to be warm and cozy for your Crested Butte mountain retreat.
