Situated at the top of the bucolic Ilium Valley 20 minutes south of Telluride in the community of Ames sits a trailblazer's property straddled by three mountain creeks and within walking distance to world-class adventures galore - ice climbing, fly fishing, hiking, biking, rock climbing - and moments away from three mesmerizing waterfalls, a glorious alpine lake, & backcountry and Nordic skiing. Ames is known worldwide for having the first hydroelectric power plant on the planet. Less known is that the original owner of this home, Henry Barber, is acclaimed worldwide as a pioneer of the clean climbing movement and a prolific first ascensionist. He picked Ames for good reason.With some love and care, you can transform this space into your dream mountain getaway. Spend days hiking, fishing, and playing in the nearby waters. The school bus stop is a mile away, and the ski mountain is 20 minutes away. Whether you are looking to relax and unwind in a quaint mountain cabin or get your adrenaline pumping, this 2,216 square-foot home is at an affordable price point for a region loaded with multi-million dollar homes. Architectural plans are available for purchase if you want to take advantage of the amazing location and build a new masterpiece. Ames was Barber's backdrop. Now make it yours!
