Liv Sotheby's International Realty

Rivaling all pre-existing levels of luxury, this legacy property is

the highest-priced home in the history of Crested Butte, more than

doubling the highest closed sale price to date.

A serene escape from the ordinary, Crested Butte is known as the “last great Colorado ski town,” and for good reason; from its stunning mountain vistas to iconic extreme skiing terrain, this quintessential mountain town offers everything you need and nothing that you don’t. With no traffic lights or interstate highways, the beauty of the surrounding landscape is the main attraction.  Visitors and locals share a deep appreciation for the simple way of living that emanates from this historic region, and just five miles outside of town sits the area’s most majestic property- 14 Kokanee Lane.

Located in the prestigious Prospect at Mt. Crested Butte neighborhood, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers, Jaima Giles-Alsum and Scout Walton are proud to represent this ski-in/ski-out six-bedroom, nine-bathroom slopeside estate that abuts the world-famous trails of the Crested Butte Mountain Resort. Masterfully designed by an inspired visionary owner, locally renowned architect Dan Murphy, and skilled contractors Hargrove Kidd Construction, this timeless old-world castle came to life in 2016 after meticulous designing and planning and nearly four years of construction. With a record-breaking list price of $15,000,000, the home’s true attraction is the awe-inspiring views, remarkable craftsmanship, and endless amenities that make this one of the most unique and livable homes on the market.

“14 Kokanee Lane is the sheer definition of luxury and is a demonstration of the kinds of equities people are willing to invest in the Crested Butte community,” says Managing Broker of LIV SIR’s Crested Butte office, Jaima Giles. “While this home is the most expensive property to hit the market in our area, I expect to see many more to follow in the near future.”

Spacious yet comfortable, this 7,844 square-foot home was designed with a large family in mind with a penchant for entertaining and showcases the best work of local artisans and craftsmen, including hand-forged ironwork, meticulous stone masonry, custom doors and built-ins, a floating staircase, lush landscaping features, and three eyebrow dormers (the first of its kind in Crested Butte).

“Donna Witt poured her 50-year interior design experience into creating her forever home. The estate combines an astounding array of quality details with a homey feel,” remarks LIV SIR Broker Scout Walton.

Expansive outdoor living space, an impressive heated driveway, an intimate 1,000-bottle wine cellar, and a hydraulic three-floor elevator only begin to scratch the surface of the extensive list of property amenities. Last but not least, the home’s main floor living features a 27-foot vaulted ceiling with exceptional floor-to-ceiling windows that fill the home with light and frame watercolor skies and forever views of the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area and the Elk Mountain Range.

Exceeding all pre-existing levels of luxury, 14 Kokanee Lane is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the most remarkable property in Crested Butte. To learn more about this legacy mountain home, contact Jaima Giles-Alsum and Scout Walton at 970.349.6653 or visit
