With a look that harks back to Crested Butte's mining history, this 5,900-square-foot home priced at $4.6 million is nonetheless a luxurious retreat for a mountain family or a prospector who's already struck ore. The six-bedroom, seven-bath house was designed by John Kosich, of Remick Associates in San Francisco, and uses antique and reclaimed materials to create its historic feel. Recycled barn wood was used for the interior and exterior, the floors come from reclaimed Southern Long Leaf Pine and Missouri limestone completes the fireplaces. The sloping metal roof and lines of the home are meant to reflect 19th-century mining architecture. It certainly has better amenities than a mining camp, coming with a killer view from the great room, game and media rooms, a steam bath, an outdoor kitchen and a bunk room. To up the home's mountain-town cred, it has a dedicated fly-tying station. All that and the 35-acre spread is only minutes from town.
