These properties had us questioning what year it was when they were listed late last month! Is it the year 2020 or 1880? Not sure about you, but based on the year we’ve had, taking a step back in time sounds like a treat. Imagine a different time with us as we visit these newly-listed, historic homes!
You barely have to reach the front gate of this Georgetown, CO home to feel as if you have gone back in time but wait until you see inside! Step one foot into this untouched piece of history and you’d be hard-pressed not to think you’ve traveled back to 1876. Much of the architecture, décor, and linens seem to have been preserved in a way that makes you feel as if you are experiencing life in the ol’ West. Original wallpapers, light fixtures and globes, brass hardware, salvaged historic bottles, and much more are included as the home is being sold furnished!
This beautiful Victorian home built in 1888 has a unique blend of updates and original splendor. Local Leadville historian Evelyn Furman bought and restored this home as well as the historic Tabor Opera house. What appears to be the original floors and ceiling detail is unlike anything you see in modern houses today. With a little bit of work, this home could show off even more of its luxurious history.
Two for one in Bonanza! Now this listing will either excite you or have you running for cover but we have to be honest, when you think of 1900’s rustic Rocky Mountains homes, these are the cabins you picture. Surrounded by rich mining history and located in downtown Bonanza there is a great opportunity to bring these structures back to life!
If you dream of owning and operating a speakeasy built in the 1890s this listing is for you! This property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and includes a saloon in the lower part of the building and residential rooms upstairs. Who wants to go in on this with us and create a beautifully renovated bed and breakfast?
