An Open House Unlike Any Other

Bluebird Real Estate recently hosted an open house tour unlike any other. We jumped at the opportunity to host a snowmobile tour to Lake Irwin and creatively showcase our client's property! Listed by Jenna May, 581 H Avenue is one of the most coveted lake-front mountain homes in the Crested Butte area. Accessible via snowmobile in the winter months, this off-the-grid dream home offers jaw-dropping views of Lake Irwin and Scarps Ridge.

Our snowmobile guide, Mike, met us at the trailhead and gave a demo on properly operating the machine, along with some trail etiquette and safety guidelines. After a quick 7-mile snowmobile ride from the trailhead, we arrived at the Irwin townsite and made our way towards the lake. This stunning property sits next to the shoreline of Lake Irwin, offering a quiet location and expansive views.

The three-story custom-built, log-sided home holds significant Irwin culture with most of its lumber, including its beams, posts, roof trusses, floor joists and siding, milled directly at Irwin. This 1,900 Sq. Ft. residence is a rare find and perfect for anyone looking for a summer or winter getaway. Imagine having the mountains and lake right outside your door!

Touring this off-the-grid masterpiece helped us become more familiar with Lake Irwin in the wintertime and provided insight into the mechanical systems necessary for luxury living beyond municipal service areas. This unique tour certainly impacted us and is an experience our team will cherish for many years to come. Living life to the fullest is what it is all about here in the beautiful West Elk Mountains, and this Lake Irwin residence makes an excellent basecamp for adventure.
