STEAMBOAT SPRINGS – If you’ve ever skied Steamboat, you’ve seen the Victorian Mansion. The beautiful Victorian Mansion, an iconic Steamboat landmark since 1992, was born as the Brinkerhoff Mansion in 1880 in Lyons, Kansas, and moved in five sections to its present location. It sits directly next to the Gondola at Tower Five.

The house was renovated, updated, and expanded without ever losing its old-world charm. Every one of its eight bedrooms is unique and appealing while boasting killer views of the slopes and the valley. Six out of eight bedrooms have private bathrooms. In the main house, there are a total of 7 bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, and a shower room. There is also a 720 square foot guest suite with one bedroom one bath over the 3-car garage with an elevated walkway to the home.

The kitchen is impressive and lovely with a bay window dining nook seating 8 people and a large granite island with a gas range. The dining room is perfect for entertaining flowing to the kitchen and the living room. The living room is warm and inviting with a large window that looks toward the Gondola and includes a Steinway piano dating from 1871 as well as many other stunning antiques that add character to this home. A huge game room houses a wet bar and pool table as well as a media room and suite perfect for guests, in-laws, or caretaker. The house and garage guest suite spreads its 6755 square feet over four floors but if you don’t feel like climbing stairs you could choose to use the elevator. The home is landscaped beautifully with an expansive lawn, flowers, and trees. The wide deck behind the home is perfect for entertaining and watching sunsets. Optionally, a hot tub in the corner of a huge shaded patio has breathtaking views of the valley.

Without question, the Victorian Mansion at 2405 Ski Trail Lane is one of a kind, unique property in Steamboat and can now be yours. This is a trophy home.
