Property Description

This fabulous Victorian Mansion is located in the beautiful valley just north of Ouray. It is surrounded by the magnificent San Juan Mountains and is on the National Historic Registry. Construction on the home started in 1886 and was completed in 1888 by George Andrew Jackson who is credited with discovery of the first commercial deposits of gold in Colorado. Locals lovingly refer to the house as the Poor Farm due to its history as a place for indigent and sick miners from 1914 - 1937. It was later purchased in the 1950’s and became a private residence. In 2000 the home was purchased by a local judge and builder, who started an amazing 10 year restoration project which included completely new plumbing, electric, exterior walls with foam insulation, a copper roof, new sub-floors, a central heating and cooling system, and new doors and windows. The current owners purchased the home in 2011 and completed the restoration in 2013. The property is truly a must see to appreciate the dedication and hard work that went into this transformation. The custom walnut millwork throughout the home was crafted by a local artisan and adorns interior doors, windows, and baseboards along with all cabinets. Much of the original gingerbread still graces the exterior along with original components of the staircase which rises to the second level upon entry into the foyer. Marble and wood floors are throughout. Reproduction Heartland appliances in the kitchen include two ovens, a broiler, and a warming drawer, refrigerator, and dishwasher to recreate a vintage feel. The four burner stove is gas. The third story attic was finished with an office space and two bonus rooms. Details show in the three restored Victorian bedrooms which includes an expansive, elegant master bedroom, and three full bathrooms. The lawn irrigation system is fed by a one hundred gallons per minute water well. Priority water rights on the Hosner Brownyard ditch feed the pond and over an acre of agricultural land. The house is supplied by Tri-County Water. A total of three acres makes up the property. The newly constructed three car garage has in-floor heat, a fourth full bath, and a parking pad with a 30 amp plug for your RV. The expansive patio includes an outdoor kitchen. This one of a kind Victorian jewel will be sold fully furnished with many extras included. Call today for a showing!
