If your dream is to be an innkeeper in Colorado or to simply enjoy a gracious home with spacious grounds, this property is for you.
If contentment is reviving old flower beds, tinkering on projects in a workshop, or creating beauty in a studio cottage, it will suit you well.
Built in 1907 by an early settler of the Colorado Territory, this charming historic home has potential as a boutique bed and breakfast. Ideally located at the edge of Walsenburg, a two stoplight town on the front range of the southern Colorado Rockies, the property is at the crossroads of major tourist routes, Interstate 25 (Denver 2, hours north and Santa Fe, 3 hours south) and US 160 heading west to the Great Sand Dunes National Monument and Mesa Verde National Park or east to the Comanche National Grasslands.
A complete rehabilitation of the house in 1997 adapted it as a guest house for customers and distributors of the owners business. The kitchen and three bathrooms were updated, original floors refinished, and missing architectural features replaced. Most rooms are fitted with antique light fixtures and radiator covers. A graceful curving veranda overlooks the grounds; a handsome maple mantelpiece adorns the original fireplace. In addition to the living room, sunroom, dining room, kitchen, and mudroom on the main floor, a fourth bedroom with adjoining bath and laundry room can be a study or the owners suite.
The property has been leased as a private residence since the business sold in 2010. Recent infrastructure improvements: a new water supply line and total sewer replacement. Now vacant, this enchanting residence awaits the loving touch of new owners to create a unique bed and breakfast or a comfortable home.
Additional amenities included:
-Whirlpool refrigerator and dishwasher
-Rooms include keyed locks, hard-wired smoke detectors, cable TV outlets, and dual jacks for internet and telephone
