Ski Town USA’s Iconic Family Home For Sale
The historic Werner family home located in Old Town Steamboat Springs, Colorado is on the market. Former home of Hazie and Pop Werner, who raised three Olympians here in Ski Town USA, the Werner family definitely made an impression upon this community. In fact, the town changed the name of Storm Mountain (a.k.a. Steamboat’s ski mountain) to Mt. Werner because they were such a big deal here. A home this rich in history, charm, modernity and solitude simply do not exist here anymore; and yet, here it is!
The Craftsman-style home, built in 1920 and respectfully remodeled in 2005, sits upon a lush serene landscape. Located on a 1.47 acre oasis, the property is bordered with mature pines, aspens and blue spruce. Soda Creek flows on three sides of the home creating a private oasis. The sound of the babbling creek combined with the soaring trees will make you forget that you are a mere 3 blocks from local schools, restaurants and shops downtown. This type of seclusion is just unheard of in the heart of Old Town.
2,888 sq ft encompasses 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a large family room. There’s also a large basement for storage making the total square feet to over 3,500. The classic Craftsman style timber-framed front porch welcome you to the home. The living room showcases the home’s charm in the original hardwood floors, block wood trim and rustic beams. It also features a beautiful rock fireplace hand-built by Carl Howelson, founder of Steamboat’s ski jump and the Winter Sports Club. (I told you this place is rich with Steamboat history.) Details of the creek outside are embraced throughout the interior with inlayed river rock in the bathrooms and flooring.
As you walk into the kitchen elements of the tasteful remodel in 2005 begin to surface. Concrete countertops, pantry, and breakfast bar mingle well with rustic accents like exposed lathe and metal walls and wood ceiling. Stainless steel European appliances offer modern day convenience without minimizing the authenticity of the home. Aspects of old and new are once again brought together in the family room. The heated concrete flooring provides modern day comfort while the reclaimed wood and repurposed materials continue the story of times past.
Every home has a story and the story of 844 Aspen Street is one rich with Ski Town USA history. Not only is this fascinating home a tale of Steamboat “royalty” and warm character unique to Steamboat Springs, it also offers the modern conveniences of today and coveted location in the heart of downtown. If that is not enough, then certainly the soothing sound of Soda Creek and privacy offered by the mature foliage will fill a soul with gratitude. This one-of-a-kind opportunity is a best-seller in my book. To begin writing your story in this remarkable setting, please contact me today.
