Formerly a booming bonanza town, now a quiet mountain retreat and National Historic Landmark, Silverton pairs stunning physical beauty with high culture, making it an attractive retreat for starving artists and CEOs alike. The archetype of a Colorado mining community that peaked with the Silver Boom, Silverton has since found a way to survive and settle into a relaxed groove all its own. Dramatic mountains, ghost towns and abandoned mines embody the essence of the West. Known as the little Switzerland of the Rocky Mountains, Silverton boasts 360 degree, panoramic views of the Alpine Rocky Mountains that lend to the feeling of living in a fairy tale town.

This property is walking distance to the Outdoor ice skating area and the local ski area from the lift located right in town. Summertime offers unlimited outdoor activities ranging from camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and rock climbing to riding on the famous and legendary, one and only, working and operating, coal burning, steam powered, original train of yesteryear that journeys along the animas river from Durango to Silverton. Silverton's San Juan mountains are know the world over for it's extensive four wheel drive roads such as the famous Alpine Loop. The mines of yesteryear made roads to Alpine locations that would have never been accessible otherwise, hence there are literally hundreds of miles of four wheel drive roads in the San Juan mountains of Silverton. There are three sides of this corner lot that no one can build on; that spells privacy.  Year around access as it is in the city limits of Historic Silverton. Utilities are on site.
