Live in the quiet solitude of the Twin Lakes glacial valley. This unique structure was custom built in 1996 around the historic 1905 home and Carriage House. Well known Vail architect Ken Wentworth designed the main level with 4 bedrooms and baths, a large parlor with kitchen and bar, a hickory cabinet vestibule, next to the historic, long covered porch looking out to the lake. The second level penthouse offers luxury with open vaulted ceilings, 2 bedrooms, and spectacular lake and peak views. The elegant standalone 2-bedroom Carriage House with beautiful hardwood floors offers direct lake views from its full-length deck. The total property is perfect as a gathering spot as well as a comfortable home. The design was for flexibility of uses, residential, commercial or a combination of both as has been the case with the original owners. Highlights such as radiant heat through out, the commercial exempt high output water well, state of the art septic system new in 2020, excellent broadband and satellite internet systems make working from home a real possibility. The 2 vacant adjacent lots with stream, included in this sale, will guaranty peaceful lake views forever. Nearby restaurant, general store, shops, and USFS Visitors Center makes this location one of the world's best for mountain experiences. Colorado's largest glacial lake and highest peak are outside your door. The Colorado and the Continental Divide Trails are a close walk away, as are SUP, kayak, and canoe rentals for the lake. The renowned Independence Pass to Aspen and the main trailhead to Mt. Elbert makes the Twin Lakes Village a popular summer visitor spot. Original owners have operated a successful AAA approved summer boutique motel serving guest dinners and continental breakfast. There could be retail, coffee shop, spa, long term rental, opportunities for this property. The 2 adjacent vacant lots would work well as a wedding venue.
