You may not know this but House Crazy Sarah works as an assistant to a Realtor in the quirky mountain town of Manitou Springs, Colorado. This job allows me to view some really unique homes close up. I usually don’t post about houses I am involved with at work because I worry that might somehow be a conflict of interest.
This house, however, is not listed on the market and the owners generously allowed me to take some photos of their home and share them with you.
This little ponderosa is home to a family of artists. The property consists of a main house, a guest cottage, and several outbuildings, including a chicken coop.
The property is strewn with artwork and the tools used in the making of art. The owners run a community program that creates outdoor public art projects using concrete and mosaics
Have a look in the main house first…
The main house dates back to 1914 and of course, I was smitten with the vintage features.
Have a closer look at that wood stove:
Check out this old chair:
The stairs to the upper level have climbing ropes for banisters.
Now have a peek at the cottage…
Who’s lived in an old house with one of these sinks? I have!
Back outside, I couldn’t help but notice this shed/workshop:
Then there was this little guy:
Special thanks to the homeowners for letting me photograph this fascinating place.
