Location: Important Aspect of Any Second Home (but a very personal decision)
Proximity and Your Dream Home
There are lots of location choices in every mountain town – and especially in the Crested Butte area. Many times when working with buyers who have not spent much time in the Crested Butte area we take the time to look at the different locations, subdivisions and talk about the pros and cons. This is very much an individual decision and important to think and talk about what you want, and how you will use your home with family, friends and guests. The good news is the Crested Butte area offers lots of choices in location, amenities, (and price points).
Is a remote riverfront home with private fly fishing at Wilder on the Taylor just what you want? Do you want to be on, or close to the golf course in Skyland?How about a place in downtown Crested Butte so you can walk to get a coffee or breakfast? Does it make sense to find a place for your group so everyone can walk home at the end of a late night? Do you want to be close to town, but not right in town where it may be noisy and there may be dogs barking? What if you were going to go ski for the day? How would you get everyone to the slopes and back? What if someone wanted to sleep in, or come back from the slopes early? Is ski-in/out or skier access important to you? (see the Prospect and Goldlink subdivisions as options). Is a secluded mountain home in the woods with great views, and on thirty-five acres your dream home location?
Will your remote mountain dream home have cell service? How about high-speed Internet service?
This goes back to really knowing how you will use your home in the winter and in the summer. How you think your family, friends, and guests will use the home, and how often they will be visiting? For you there may not be any easy answers, but lots of good questions.
