Telluride and Real Estate Blog

Truly Telluride began as a simple idea before the age of digital cameras, Photoshop, and e-publications; it was a mere list of properties offered for sale. As Telluride has evolved, so has the magazine. Now a 112-page, coffee-table-quality magazine, Truly Telluride has featured everything from candid interviews with part-time locals Ed Barlow, Shushana Castle and the late Ambassador Richard Holbrooke to in-depth features on Telluride’s first-rate educational programs, arts & culture, and lusty outdoor lifestyle - all featured side-by-side with the region's premier properties. Truly Telluride is the recipient of a Benny statue and is a best of category award winner in the Product/Service Catalogs category from the Premier Print Awards.

Service increased now through the end of the ski season

In April 1979, singer Ozzy Osbourne learned he’d been fired from seminal heavy metal band Black Sabbath, which took the world by storm throughout the decade with their original brand of down-tuned, doom-laden music. Osbourne, with no guarantee of success, decided to embark on a solo career, quickly releasing two records — “Blizzard of Ozz” (1980) and “Diary of a Madman” (1981) — after the split. They were both massive hits. One Ozzy original, “Flying High Again,” seemed to recognize his bounce back to the top.

Over the past two years, commercial service at Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) had

Bear Creek

This week, take a moment to wish Bear Creek a happy birthday.

On Jan. 23, 1995, ownership of the 320-acre parcel that stretches south from Telluride Town Park, formerly a patchwork of mining claims and private lands in lower Bear Creek Canyon, passed to the then-newly formed San Miguel Conservation Foundation (SMCF) and, ultimately, the Town of Telluride.

The move formally created Bear Creek Preserve, protecting the land from future development.

The story of how Bear Creek Preserve came to be, though, stretches even farther back

Telluride residents are familiar with the devastating effects of wildfires. The fires during the summer of 2018 were disastrous for parts of Colorado. Fortunately, most residential areas were spared. For the current wildfires in Australia, the same is not true.

The continent’s megafires are burning in populated areas, which is atypical. Wildfires of this scale usually burn in remote regions in Canada or Siberia, where they can burn out without threatening people, as

By the time you read this, the Dakota Home Store, a fixture on Telluride’s Main Street for more than two decades, will be no more.

All gone: the carefully selected tables and chairs, the scrupulously curated kitchen supplies. Goodbye to Joya and Danny, the golden retrievers who lounged inside the warm store in winter and greeted kids outside in summer.

For that matter, farewell to the golden-retriever-shaped salt-and-pepper shakers, one of the few items left in the store Friday afternoon. Tom and Anne Connor, Joya and Danny’s owners — also the owners of

Through nine months of 2019, the Telluride Market as a whole is benefiting from an influx of late-Summer/early-Fall sales and contracts that bring
us up to just below the market levels of 2018 year-to-date. One especially encouraging segment of growth has been the Mountain Village homes
market, which has seen an influx of activity in the $1.5m-$7m range; 7 properties have sold this summer and another 6 are currently under contract
with 43 still available. Previous to this “bump”, the upper-end Mountain Village market has been a microcosm of the Telluride area: great product at
great values, but demand lagging slightly behind national and metropolitan markets. The exception here has been the strong demand for high-end
properties in downtown Telluride where
