Truly one-of-a-kind, this cottage is located in sought-after Evergreen, Colorado. Poised privately on just over one-acre you are within walking distance to downtown Evergreen with lots of events and activities!
At one time, Evergreen was called the Blue Spruce Capital of the World — it’s beautiful here. It is close enough to Denver but provides a “get out of the city” breath of fresh air. Evergreen is known as a great place to retire or raise a family!
Evergreen town rules state that short term rentals properties have to located on at least one acre. Having ownership of a very rare 1.09 acres, this cottage is ideal for a short-term rental. The previous owner used it exclusively as an Airbnb.
The cottage is unusual in its design and style. Constructed in 1954, its styling is mid-century modern. There are pretty wood floors and huge windows. Knotty pine walls lend a rustic yet natural feel so that the house blends nicely with the outdoors. The cottage is L-shaped. Just off the back and inside the “L” is a large, totally private deck. An unusual visual feature on the deck is the tip of a large boulder coming through from below. Careful not to disturb the environment more than necessary, the deck is built atop a huge boulder. A six-person hot tub with UV and peroxide filtration for silky smooth skin stays with the house!
The cottage is full of unique details. Throughout there are hand-carvings including a carved archway. One entire wall is filled with built-in bookcases, plus a wall of windows framing the expansive views. There are two brick woodburning fireplaces. The dining room is large and can easily accommodate many for dinner. The main level features two bedrooms and one bathroom.
Three of the doors are ornately carved by a former artist/owner. The front doors were created as a prototype from the Evergreen National Bank board room. A focal point in the living room is a hand-carved totem pole.
The rooftop solar panels are functional and included with sale (no lease in place). There is covered parking for 2 cars and a 1000 square foot ancillary building that is currently used as motorcycle storage. It has heat and electricity but no water.
As seen below, the view from the picture windows on the north side of the home frame downtown Evergreen perfectly. The view from the back deck (and from the hot tub on the back deck) feels like you’re far from any civilization.
