Beta Sigma Phi is having their annual Home Tour Sunday, June 3, from 1-5 p.m. Tickets are just $10.
Proceeds from the tour will benefit Memorial Hall as well as the Kathleen Wheeler Scholarship. Memorial Hall is a 501(3)c organization and any non-profit organization may use it at no cost. It is one of a few such organizations left in the country that owns and runs itself on a very low budget.
Tickets, maps and itinerary will be available the day of the tour at the Creamery Arts Center as well as from the members of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority members.
Here's a preview of the homes which are all located in the Hotchkiss area.
The Grants purchased their five acres in 2006.Don and Marsha had the design for their home when they came from Steamboat and decided to build. Robin Nicholoff was their general contractor. Don did all of the stone and tile work, all of the woodwork, flooring and landscaping. Marsha did a lot of the finish work, painting, decorating and helped with the landscaping. The home features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, an office, and wonderful patios. It has its own wine cellar and many, many other custom features. This home has fabulous views of the West Elk Range and the Gunnison Gorge.
Atha's Place is a brick Victorian home built in 1902. Atha Ainsworth lived in the home for over 40 years. For much of that time, Mrs. Ainsworth used the home as a boarding house while her husband drove freight wagons throughout the west. The home has been completely restored and is a delight to guests. Two apple trees frame the front walk and a huge weeping willow tree shades the backyard. The back porch offers a pleasant sitting area to enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Atha's has four bedrooms and a TV or reading room, 2-1/2 baths, a fully furnished kitchen, living room and parlor.
This single level home was built around 1970 and remodeled by the present owners after they purchased it in 2005. It sits above Leroux Creek on Barrow Mesa and has an amazing 360 degree view. The original tiny kitchen has been tripled in size, featuring a high ceiling and mocha stained hickory cabinets. Taking up the old carpet, revealed hardwood oak floors which have been refinished. The sunroom has a stamped, colored concrete floor. Chinese scrolls, purchased in China, adorn the walls in several rooms.
Hamrick and Spencer Home
This new home was purchased by the current owners just this spring from the estate of Lois Maloney. The owners were able to buy the furniture in the home, a painting done by Lois and one of her old clocks. The small tables on the front and back patios came from the old drug store in Hotchkiss. An avid hunter, some of the decorations come from those experiences, also. This home is close to town, beautifully landscaped and has a remarkable view of the mountains.
This unique 1,900 square foot home in North Ridge Meadows has the most beautiful landscaping and looks over into the "wilds" of the old Coal Road where wild life abounds.
A sunroom to relax in is special to this house. It has two bedrooms and a den and was built in 2008 by Jay Rasmussen.
