Routt is this landmark home. Just after the turn to Pearl Lake is the "Poverty Bar House" named after the historic Poverty Bar Mine and the Poverty Bar Spring that runs through the 11.79 acre property. The great room, which features a stone, wood burning fireplace and glass French doors that open to the deck, meadow and pond below, in addition to views of the Zirkel Wilderness and Continental Divide. The large dining room, off the great room, perfectly frames views of Hahns Peak. The kitchen also offers views of Hahns Peak and has a cozy lower level breakfast nook/winter garden with sunroom windows. Upstairs is the master bedroom with private balcony, ensuite bathroom with jacuzzi tub as well as a second bedroom and bath. On the lower level are two additional bedrooms with a shared bath, both have walkout access to the vast yard, private pond and gazebo. Above the garage is a stunning studio loft with cathedral ceilings and arched beams, which could be used as an office, studio, secondary living space or caretaker unit. This memorable home was built for North Routt living. A geothermal heat system saves money while providing warmth and comfort during the winter. A short driveway means less to plow leaving more time for fun. Conveniently attached is a two-car garage, with small workshop for waxing skis, and detached is an oversized 2-3 car garage with large storage space above. The North Routt area is renowned for its amazing snowmobiling, there are miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and in the summer the hiking, horseback riding, dirt biking and mountain biking are epic. The home is 1.8 miles from Pearl Lake State Park, 2 miles from Steamboat Lake State Park, 6 miles from the Clark Store and it is a quick 24 mile drive to all the amenities of Steamboat Springs. The Poverty Bar House is looking for a new owner that enjoys high-speed internet and abundant outdoor recreation, as well as local history and folklore.
