After moving to Idaho Springs, CO for Natalie's job with the Forest Service, we started looking for rentals in Golden where I found a job. It turns out that you can't get much for under $1500 a month...at least if your standards involve dog friendly, storage space and not smelling like a Animal house. We decided to look at the houses for sale Clear Creek county....and found one that We fell in love with. I can sum it up in a few choice words... Victorian, Wine Cellar, Keg cooler.Wine cellar with the Keg cooler that is piped through the wall to the taps in the dining room wall..how convienent. This is the only room in the house that is air conditioned.
This is the view from the second floor looking out over Idaho Springs. The house is at the widest part of town and the highway is below town, so there isn't a clear view of the highway and very little noise, defiantly a nice thing in Idaho Springs.
The view from the stairs out into the sideyard. about half the yard is landscaped..we plan to build a dog run and a garden in the rest of it. This property actually consists of two building lots which is why the side yard is so large. All told there is 0.6 acres with the house, although a good part of that is the steep hillside behind the house.
The protrusion on the end of the house if the stairs. The room above the patio off the dining room is the sun room. That will be tiled and become the office/plant room.
