Enjoy arguably the finest view of any rental property in Telluride at Rivercrown 2, a luxury town home built in 2006. Rivercrown 2 directly faces Ajax peak, with an uninterrupted vista over the beaver pond and town park from the second floor great room, large outdoor deck, third floor master bedroom, and upstairs deck with hot tub. Whether you are cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the living room, or star gazing from the decks, everything at Rivercrown 2 orients toward Telluride’s box canyon.
Named for the bend in the San Miguel river around which it curves, Rivercrown has an in-town location close to restaurants, the gondola, and trail heads. The gondola is a quick walk, 2.5 flat blocks away. The river trail, Bear Creek trail, and beaver pond are just around the corner, a short block away. In winter, one can ski along the flat river trail to and from the gondola. The River Trail passes directly behind the unit and leads to Town Park in a beautiful five minute walk. The heart of Main Street shopping and restaurants are three blocks away. Even closer, Smugglers Bar and Grill is around the corner. Everything is easily walkable, so consider leaving a car behind. If you do bring a car, the unit has a private one-car garage plus another reserved parking spot in front of it.
Rivercrown 2 was built and decorated to a luxury standard. Upon entering the private drive and parking area, you’ll notice the beautiful stonework in a European lodge style. From ground level, enter via the one-car garage or front door into a large foyer with spiral staircase leading upstairs. The ground floor, which is being remodeled, will soon have three bedrooms and two full baths. The first guest suite has a split king bed (it can be either a king-sized bed or reconfigured as two twins) with private bathroom, including a shower/tub combination. The second guest bedroom has a king bed and attached bathroom. The third bunk room will sleep 4 adults or 6 kids in a twin/twin bunk and a full/full bunk; it shares the bathroom with the second bedroom. A stacked clothes washer and dryer are also on this level.
A spiral staircase leads to the great room that occupies the entire second floor. The kitchen, dining area, and living area orient toward the view of Ajax Peak, framed by huge sliding glass doors. The full gourmet kitchen features Thermador and KitchenAid stainless steel appliances, a center island sink with bar seating, and a large dining table for eight. In the lounge area, two couches surround the gas fireplace and HDTV. On the other side are two wide armchairs that can also fold out as day beds. Unlike the other Rivercrown units, #2 has a powder room on this floor. Outside on the large deck sit a picnic bench, gas grill, and seating. The deck is fabulous on sunny days, but it really shines during the Jazz and Bluegrass Festivals. Past guests have enjoyed listening to concerts at Town Park without leaving the deck.
The master suite occupies the entire third floor. The master bedroom features a king bed, HDTV, walk-in closet, and great views. The large master bathroom has a steam shower and oversize jetted tub. The deck off of the master bedroom has a large hot tub with a panoramic view of Ajax, Ballard, and the beaver pond.
There are other Rivercrown units for rent, and all of them are nice. These are some of the things that differentiate Rivercrown 2:
1) One of just two units that directly face Ajax Peak. The other units angle toward Ballard Peak.
2) The only property with a fourth (bunk) bedroom.
3) The only property with a powder room on the great room level. Trust us, you’ll appreciate that.
4) High-end furniture and artwork.
5) Sound-proofing between the stairwell and master bedroom, as well as between the master bedroom and master bath.
