This $1.9 Million Home is a Major Part of Colorado's Gold History

This home was built by the man to discover Colorado's first commercial gold deposits.

The home located at 14 Citadel Drive in Ridgway has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a three-car garage, 3,743 square feet of living space, and sits on a 3.06-acre plot of land. The home was purchased in 2000 and renovations took place over the course of 10 years.

Renovations included plumbing, electric, exterior walls, foam insulation, a copper roof, sub-flooring, doors, windows, and HVAC. This historic home was then sold again in 2011 to the current owners that completed the renovations in 2013.

A newly completed three-car garage features a full bathroom, in-floor heating, and a parking pad for an RV equipped with a 30 amp plug.
