The Cabin on the Etna Claim. 1 claim, 5 acres. Fully constructed, Well, Septic, & Electricity installed. This “cabin” represents Chip Webster’s (Architect and Owner) creativity and desire to build interesting buildings that complement and are informed by the environment. It was inspired by the mining cabins around in this area in varying stages of disrepair. The Cabin is situated exactly 2 miles above sea level and is architecturally impressive. Inside, it’s warm and simple, with the Master BR off of the Living/Kitchen Room, a wood burning stove, and a second BR in the Loft. The views are extraordinary. It has one of the 5 wells Chip installed on his entire property, that puts out the most volume of them all. Directly south of this Etna claim lies many acres of US Forest land, so it feels like it is a much larger piece of property. This jewel of a getaway can be had for $995,000.
The Architect | Owner originally purchased close to 300 acres spanning the ridge between Ute and Saxon Mountains property with the vision of creating The Gaava Retreat, to synthesize Art, Technology, and Spirituality. When you see this smaller portion of the property, you’ll understand the inherent magic of the property.
If you are looking for a mountaintop getaway and love to hike and explore, this property might your answer.
At ~ 45 minutes from Denver to Idaho Springs, and ~ 25 - 30 minutes up the mountain, it’s possible to be door to door in under 1.5 hours. The “Gaava” (Ute for “above the clouds”) property is a slice of Heaven and there is exceptional hiking, paths and trails for x-country skiing, dirt and mountain biking, hunting, etc.
