581 H Avenue

Welcome to one of the most coveted lake-front mountain homes in the old mining town of Irwin! Jaw dropping views in every direction with an abundance of wildlife makes this a truly amazing getaway and off the grid residence located directly at Lake Irwin. This three story custom-built, log sided home offers significant Irwin culture and history with a majority of the lumber, including the beams, posts, roof trusses, floor joists and siding, milled directly from Irwin. All of the natural, unique shaped logs are spruce and hand-picked, felled, and milled in the historic townsite of Irwin. The kitchen breakfast bar came from massive Redwoods in Roseville, Oregon. The bay window in the bar, where you’ll saddle up for martinis after a big day of snowmobiling and backcountry skiing, is natural redwood from Downieville, CA, and the geodes inset in the bar top are from Auburn, CA. The bay window in the bar is over 100 years old and was the storefront window of an original jewelry and gemstone store in the Irwin Townsite in the late 1800's and early 1900’s. Although this off-grid location is remote, you can choose to stay connected easily with high speed internet options, satellite, and has all the bells and whistles to keep you as comfortable as desired. You will enjoy easy access to National Forest with activities including elk, deer, moose, bear and beaver visits, not to mention, this mountain home is located directly on Lake Irwin! No matter which season is your favorite, your friends and family will have the best accessibility to an amazing outdoor mecca offers world class hiking, biking, sailing, canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, swimming, climbing, ATV exploring, motorcycling, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross-country and backcountry skiing, snowcat skiing and snowmobiling out the front and back doors. For those a little more adventurous, this can be the ideal backcountry ski location with access to some of the Gunnison valley’s best ski terrain. This 1,900 Sq.Ft. residence is a rare find and perfect for anyone looking for a summer or winter, off the grid dream getaway. The possibilities are endless with another 928 Sq.Ft. generous basement space with its own exterior access to be finished as additional sleeping space, mother in law suite, or second living area.
