Are You Ready To Move West?

A unique opportunity to own two properties in historic Elbert, Colorado. The first property is what we call the “Church property” and is on the Colorado Historical Registry. Built in 1914 this property was the home of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church until the 1950s. The “Church property” includes the original church (which would make a great wedding venue or antiques shop), the rectory (also built in 1914), a two-car Cleary metal garage, a small hay storage building, and a small garage (built in 1935) which has been used as a refinishing and storage building. The rectory has been completely updated and is 1733 square feet and is our home. It consists of an entry room, a living room, a parlour, a guest bedroom, a small dining room, a master bedroom with sitting room, a nice sized kitchen, and one bathroom with an oversized shower. The front and back of the house have covered porches. There is original hardwood floors throughout and beautiful original wood door frames and transoms. It is small but overflowing with charm. The yard has mature trees, including pines, cedars, and an incredible Ohio Buckeye. There is a wonderful grapevine that allows for privacy in the “upper garden”. We also have a large paddock and an enclosed loafing shed, which currently houses one ancient Navajo pony and two fat and pushy miniature donkeys. This area is a nice size for two horses to finish off your Western dream.

Located only one-quarter mile from the church property, the second property is a 5,000 square foot, four unit, metal building that houses our antiques business with one unit currently rented by a professional business with a rental income of $500.00 per month. This building is situated on Elbert Highway, an alternate road that runs between Colorado Springs and Denver (about 40 minutes from each). The town is small with approximately 200 people living in the town proper, but the county of Elbert has about 23,000 residents. Our elevation is about 7400 feet and Pike’s Peak, at over 14,000 feet, is in view from most of the county. Our intention is to sell approximately $50,000 in inventory with the building. This will include display cases, furniture, artwork, costume and semi-precious jewelry, vintage Western clothing, glassware, etc. Certainly enough for the buyer to walk into the shop and begin selling immediately.

Both Properties Priced Together at: $879,000.00
