Some Colorado properties are such treasures, they are held in families and passed through generations. This offering is a rare opportunity to purchase a show-stopping, modern ski-in, ski-out gem in the Whetstone Building as part of your own family legacy. The “Silver Queen Ski Residence” is a one-of-a-kind mountain retreat offering premium finishes, incomparable slope-side Mt. Crested Butte location and one-twelfth ownership in the future redevelopment potential of this prime 1.24-acre base area site. Enjoy direct access to and from the slopes to catch the first chair up, return for a quick stop for warm cocoa, or enjoy a lunchtime rendezvous with friends in this elegant and cozy home. On the expanded deck, take front row seats to enjoy fireworks, New Year’s torch light parade, summer concerts and kids skiing, biking and ziplining. Appreciate the masterful architectural design by Dan Murphy. Expertly transformed from the framing forward, this residential space is a complete rebuild of the coveted corner location at the northern end of the Whetstone Building. The owners worked closely with general contractor, Jeff Pike, for superior workmanship to recreate the space to a modern and sophisticated property, using only the most high-end materials and sparing no expense on luxurious amenities and unique appointments. The gorgeous home now features a raised second floor level by 11-inches to create vaulted 18-foot ceilings in the great room, added structural and exposed oak beams, whitewashed tongue-and-grove wood ceiling, expansion of the eastern and northern walls to add living space and accommodate additional dining seating, in-floor heating and new plumbing and electrical systems, new energy efficient windows and top of the line motorized Lutron blinds and Hunter Douglas Silhouttes, an expanded exterior deck with Trex flooring for outdoor living, and much more. The floor plan is meticulously designed to take advantage of space, natural light and mountain views. The interior is sleek, yet comfortable and inviting, incorporating the selection of the finest furnishings and lighting by Restoration Hardware’s top design team. The volume of the two-story living room is accentuated by a Camino Vintage Candelabra 2-tier chandelier and the custom Air Slate wood-burning fireplace with white quartz mantle on the black granite hearth, ideal for peeling off your boots apres ski, and watching the mountain afternoon melt into the dinner hour. The generous dining area seats six and is adorned with a spectacular 1920s Odeon clear glass fringe 3-tier chandelier. The kitchen footprint and cabinetry is complimented by stunning UltraLux contemporary high-gloss cabinets, under-cabinet puck lights, Thermador stainless appliances, and white quartz stone countertops with an island bar and additional seating for four. "The Galley" Workstation space-saver sink allows the gourmet chef to savor the expansive view of the mountain activity beyond the stunning floor to ceiling windows. An adjacent modern staircase sports a custom safety iron and oak banister with cable railing and wide plank (7-inch) white oak steps and risers continuing from the flooring on the main level to the second story, beautifully illuminated for evening. Enjoy two stunningly appointed master bedrooms with spa-caliber, en-suite bathrooms plus an additional sleeping berth in the loft, conveniently served by the upstairs powder bath. In addition to the second master suite, the upstairs level hosts a bonus area with TV and rec room seating. This modern sanctuary is located above the Vail Resorts’ Kids Ski School and literally a few steps from the Silver Queen detachable quad chair lift. Next door is the Gunnison Valley Health medical clinic and the Elevation Hotel & Spa for guest overflow and fitness membership. Don’t forget that the Ski Center parking lot accommodates over 70 spaces and represents a significant redevelopment opportunity.
