Legend has it that Butch Cassidy consumed some liquid courage at the local Town of Telluride Pool Hall before his unauthorized withdrawal and ingenious getaway from the San Miguel Valley Bank just down the street. The pool hall’s bar and back bar was painstakingly restored and architecturally woven into the residence’s lower level game/family room with expansive stone fireplace, spacious seating areas, and yes, ample room for a pool table. This level, with expansive window openings to a hot tub patio, also includes two additional guest bedrooms, laundry, ski-in mudroom, home theatre and flex area ideal for placement of exercise equipment.
A re-cycled, Douglas Fir timbered and vaulted two story great room envelops a chef’s kitchen and dining area soothingly divided by a massive two-sided timber and rock fireplace. Lift and slide glass doors grant access to a covered mahogany deck running the entire length of the main living area. Views of the majestic San Sophia Ridge are perfectly framed bringing the mountainous environment within. The main level also is graced with a main master, with ensuite bath and very generous walk-in closet. A third guest bedroom with fireplace and bath also doubles as a den, study library.
The upper level comprises an equally elegant second master and office, and above a three car heated garage with access from within the primary dwelling, a comfortable and cozy guest house will offer privacy to visiting family and friends.
Surface specs, appliances, lighting (Lite Touch) and other systems are what is to be expected in a home with a perfect blend of the rustic Telluride mining era and the comforts of contemporary design: Alder cabinetry, wide plank re-cycled oak flooring; exquisite slates, travertines, mosaics, granites and limestones; Miele, Subzero, Thermodor and Dacor appliances; Kohler, Rohl, Franke, Grohe, and Sonoma plumbing fixtures.
