Log Cabin in the Historic District of Gold Hill. Travel 10 miles west on well maintained plowed Sunshine Canyon and you arrive at the first permanent mining camp in Colorado, now called Gold Hill. Built in circa 1865, this cabin has been designated as a Boulder County Historic Landmark and retains the cozy, rustic feel of the era. The Gold Run Creek (now dry but where the first gold was placered) runs along the back of the property. Inside, a new Jotul woodburning stove sits on the hearth of the keystone fireplace built from locally sourced stone. The kitchen hosts a massive 1880s Born kitchen wood stove, as well as a new gas oven/range. The bathroom and mudroom are constructed of new and reclaimed materials where a clawfoot tub invites one to relax. The writer's sunroom or office can be used to write your novel, as a yoga retreat, or can be permitted for use as a gift shop for tourists that visit the town. Originally built as a double story structure, the insulated attic is spacious enough to allow for extra beds for when the grandkids visit or used as storage. A dug out cellar is accessed through a door in the kitchen floor and is roomy enough to stand in and can also be used as storage. Additionally a large 15X14.5 ft2 shed can be used as a workshop or additional storage. The home is heated with a wood stove and Rinnai high efficiency propane heaters. See additional list of improvements. May be permitted as a shop,restaurant,other. Notable previous owners include Sheriff John Jester (1899), and "Bluebirds" member, Doris T. (1940). Most recently, the cabin was featured as the home of the main character in an upcoming major motion film directed by George Nolfi. Hiking trails, scenic vistas and a great small town community are right out your front door.
