Town of Telluride

Situated snugly in a dramatic box canyon, Telluride is full of Victorian charm and its very own brand of quirkiness. Unlike most small towns, it has a distinctly cosmopolitan quality due to its sophisticated cultural tastes, exceptional schools and unlimited opportunities to experience a world beyond the ordinary. However, true to small town life, the pace is relaxed, the consciousness of preservation is strong and folks remember your name. In 1964, Telluride was designated as a National Historic Landmark District. As a result, historic buildings must retain their Victorian character, and any renovation or new construction is scrutinized prior to approval by the Historic and Architectural Review Commission (HARC). With such protective measures in place, and with Telluride's limited geography and inventory, expect real estate values to remain strong in this culturally-rich, stunningly pristine town.
