HISTORIC BUILDING(S) LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE TOWN OF DEL NORTE, COLORADO WITH PRIME VISIBILITY ON GRANDE AVENUE/HIGHWAY 160". From 2011-2019 Wild West Wine & Spirits operated as a thriving local business. According to the Rio Grande County Assessor's Office, 535 Grande Avenue was built in 1899. The property was originally three separate buildings. Per local historians, the location housed in the 1880s The Washington House Hotel, a bakery, and a paint store. Krepfs Grocery was an active business from 1910 to the 1930s. In the 1920s, a well-known photographer, Haywire Hume may have had his studio. Alva B. Hibbs purchased the property in 1955. In the 1970's ownership transitioned the three buildings into one conclusive building and operated as a laundry service, liquor, and video store. This 3,813 square foot building features a designated rear entrance and front street parking, 3-phase electric, commercial refrigeration, on-demand HWH, natural gas forced air heating, led lighting, office spaces, work station area, 1/2 bath, camera equipment, a separate sink with cabinetry, custom built cashier's counter, four high-efficiency evaporative units, two compressors, and an abundance of storage space.

I live and love Colorado through the outdoor experiences of recreational opportunities in endless miles of public lands by hiking, biking, x-country skiing, and a disciplined daily practice of Yoga. I am small town oriented helping to connect community members with one another through social and local events, and gatherings of businesses and various organizations.
