Old Town Steamboat Springs Has Katy Perry’s Next Home

One thing is true about real estate in downtown Steamboat Springs, aka Old Town, it is highly sought-after and the cool place to live. If you’re a hipster and like being close to the action, downtown Steamboat is for you. Here homeowners enjoy walkable and bikeable accessibility to schools, downtown’s restaurants and shops, Howelson Hillthe libraryCore Trail and more. With the year-round free bus system making frequent stops downtown to shuttle passengers to the Steamboat Ski Area and areas outside of downtown, who needs a car?

Homes in Old Town are in limited supply and high demand, making the price of real estate here higher per square foot than in other areas of Steamboat Springs. The good thing about this is that it makes for a greater value for your investment because Old Town will always be popular and homes will always be in limited supply. Let me show you 4 incredible homes located in convenient Old Town that offer some pretty incredible attributes.

Nestled next to Butcherknife Creek, 197 Hill Street is a reclaimed timber-framed home that looks like it has been in Old Town for a century or more. However, it was built in 2004 and includes all the modern conveniences like a gourmet commercial kitchen, radiant in-floor and geo-thermal heating.

Native landscaping and natural irrigation provides privacy and requires little maintenance, allowing you the time to truly enjoy the Steamboat lifestyle. This Old Town home is as much an inspiration of nature as it is a reflection of a life well lived in the Rocky Mountains.
