I am very proud to announce that the Historic Gondola House in Breckenridge, Colorado has recently been listed for sale. This truly amazing home was built in 1895 and underwent a complete renovation in 2008. Like something out of an HGTV episode, the contractors picked up the home and moved it temporarily to an adjacent lot. They then excavated a basement level, poured a new foundation and returned the home to its original position. With a new foundation in place, the Gondola House was ready for a total remodel including new rough electrical wiring, new rough plumbing and new insulation throughout.

The Gondola House in Breckenridge is now a five bedroom, five bathroom custom home with nearly 3000 square
