The two-story, red sandstone home has stood on Main Street since 1902.   Richard Whinnerah, had the house built for his bride, Una Wheeler.  The dressed stone exterior of the house and wrap-around porch are typical of Edwardian style with less ornamentation than earlier Victorian.    The home was purchased in 1945 by the Idarado Mining Company.   The mining company renovated it in 1995 and it remains in excellent condition.  The present owner has restored many of the early characteristics of the home while rretaining its historic character and making it a comfortable house.  The home is presently utilized as a primary residence; however, with its C-1 zoning there are possible opportunities including conversion of the garage/workshop to an Auxiliary Dwelling Unit (AUD) and possible commercial uses of the property.  Any such use change opportunities should be explored and confirmed with the City of Ouray.  Short Term Rentals - "STRs" are permitted in Ouray’s C-1, Zone District. STRs are a permitted use if a property owner obtains a STR license from the City and adheres to all applicable regulations. Specific regulations are outlined in the Ouray Municipal Code (Section 7-5-J-11). $1,890,000 Active

Great location, with views and a large city lot! This home sits on a prime corner and comes with .29 acres.  The assessor has the house as being built in 1914, but the owners have found proof the house was actually built in 1882 with additions added later. The house has a clean and dry basement/foundation. It has lots of potential to be adorable with a remodel, which could make this property shine! With the R-2 zoning you could also build a multi unit complex, subject to approval by the city.
