The expansive mountain retreat you have dreamed of does exist—on the western slope of the Rockies to be exact. 6 Peak View Drive in Mount Crested Butte is a 4.52-acre family sanctuary planted on a level terrace of wildflowers and trees at the base of Crested Butte.
Sound too good to be true? It’s real. Read on.
It’s difficult to choose the best feature of this estate, but the views certainly top the list. Sunrises, sunsets, and daily weather formations that drift by are magical to observe through the floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outside in. The home, which overlooks the historic town of Crested Butte, offers picture-perfect views of a gently flowing river below and the majestic mountain peaks of the land trust-protected acreage that spans the lush, green Upper Gunnison Valley.
The privacy alone is priceless. Tall Aspen groves and blue spruce hug this refuge, further enhancing privacy and creating harmony between the home and the abundant wildlife that surrounds it. Families will appreciate the area’s low crime rate and how the estate has served as a haven from the ravages of climate change and the stress of the pandemic. 6 Peak View is suitable for families of almost any size with kids of all ages. The award-winning Gunnison Watershed School District is an attractive option for families with children in kindergarten through 12th grade. Several colleges are located nearby as well.
This property is widely considered one of the best building sites in the entire Overlook Development, built on a solid level terrace with no stilts. The Upper Loop hike-and-bike trail is steps away from the front door, as is the Crested Butte ski resort. The estate is a one-owner home built in 1999 by Jack Huckins, a highly respected homebuilder in the area who is known for his quality construction techniques and fine finishes.
Now, let’s look inside. There’s plenty of room for everyone here. The welcoming entry reveals the first look at the oversized living room, complete with a wood-burning Rumford fireplace. A chef’s kitchen is designed for convenience and leisurely family meals in the cozy dining area. A primary suite, large study, and powder room adjoin the living room which opens to outdoor living areas with wrap-around hardwood decks, creating an almost seamless outdoor/indoor living environment. Accent lighting throughout the home sets the mood and brings out the richness of the finishes, which include hardwood cherry floors, cabinetry, and trim.
On the lower level, you’ll find another primary suite and an additional bedroom and bath, laundry room, and sizeable family room with a fireplace. The family room opens to the outdoor grounds, making it easy for kids to run outside and play and return inside to warm up or cool off as much as they like. A spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed luxury guest apartment above the detached two-car garage is another coveted feature—the perfect place to privately accommodate guests, family members, or even a potential renter.
This private, luxury, one-of-a-kind oasis is offered for $3.75 million. To learn more, contact the owner himself, John Jay Dalton, at 713-775-3611 or [email protected].
