Elk Run Mining Compound, Estate of the Day
Part of the pleasure of doing the estate-of-the-day post each day is searching through the dreck to find truly exceptional homes. This one in Telluride wins me over with its open, light-filled spaces and the use of simple shed and gable structures to create three different spaces which represent a mill, cabin and a bunkhouse and form a master suite, main home, and a garage with a caretaker's unit above. There is also an older log cabin which has been moved to the nearly five-acre property and set amidst the woods for a private guest experience. The entrance to the home has a timber and steel trestle bridge. There are six bedrooms total and just one fireplace but what a fireplace it is, so huge you could practically curl up inside it. This home is listed at $8.995 million.
