[Before and After] 1770s House Now a Stunning Mountain Ski Home

. . . Gorgeous Both Inside and Out!


There are many old houses around – some even centuries old – that lie abandoned, dilapidated and are even considered useless.  But there are people who see beyond this situation and recognize the great potential in them.  Such is the case when a family sought the services of Heritage Restorations to give a new lease on life to a 1770s Dutch style barn house, originally built in Upper Mohawk Valley, New York.  Partly named after its new location in Telluride, Colorado, the Telluride Dutch Barn has undergone restoration and has been converted into a remarkable multiple-story ski home.  With attractive exposed beams in every room, it’s a dream home that’s become a reality for the satisfied and proud new homeowners.  Take a look at the photos after restoration, and those before it.  Then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!


This New York Dutch barn, built circa 1770, is now a Colorado mountain ski home with multiple floors.  The antique wood floors complement the hand-hewn beams and the flat-finished walls add a clean look to the home.  The gable roof line was raised from the slope of a traditional Dutch barn.
