Classic view of Mt. Baldy from this original mountain home dating back to 1898, when those fortunate enough to be here had their choice of any location! Situated on the rise of land that is steeped in Grand Lake history just south of the channel between what are now the two lakes, originally known as the "outlet" of Grand Lake and considered the headwaters of the Colorado River (originally called the Grand River)...
The Property includes Two Lake Front Homes on multiple prime lakefront lots! The newer Chalet with 2+ bedrooms & 3 baths can be enjoyed year-round. The original home is still equipped with many of its original fixtures and furnishings and is a charming 5 bedroom, 2 bath home with a large two slip boathouse and a spacious south facing dock/deck. Be sure to check out the bunkhouse! Private well, public sewer. The road to the property is privately maintained.
R168940 Grand Lake City: Block 3, Lots 6 - 8 and the South 15 feet of Lot 9 #1128 GCR 6953 $3,125,000
In this secret, private setting, you have ninety feet of lake frontage - 3 and a half lots in the original Grand Lake City, which was platted in 1898 by Joseph Wescott, Grand Lake's first permanent settler. Prior to that, the Ute Indians are said to have set up summer camp on this shoreline. Your family could be the third owner in the chain of title, following Wescott, The Mitchell Family from Topeka Kansas, who built this home as early as 1898 and named it Topeka Wigwam, and then the current owners, the James family who were long-time owners of the Grand Lake Lodge, Hidden Valley ski area, and the store at the top of Trail Ridge Road.
