Telluride, Colorado is perhaps one of the most quintessential Colorado mountain towns in the state. It is small, yet has a famous ski mountain and is home to numerous very rich celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld, Oprah Winfrey, and Tom Cruise who seek that picturesque Colorado mountain atmosphere.

Consequently, it is rather expensive to live in Telluride. Naturally, if just anyone could afford to live in the town it would quickly lose its small, exclusive, Colorado mountain town feel.

Currently, an adorable little house is for sale in Telluride for the steep price of $4.3 million and there are plenty of reasons why.

First and foremost, the home carries such a hefty price tag because of its location. The home is located at 129 N Aspen St, Telluride, CO 81435 which is right in the heart of downtown Telluride but far enough away from most of the businesses in the downtown area to have some privacy as well.

The home is also located right down the road from the famous ski mountain, near the Telluride Station free gondola, and has amazing views of the aforementioned ski mountain as well as Ajax Peak.

In addition, the house is a well-known, historic property. Known as Josie's Folly, the home was first built in 1885 and still has its Victorian-era appearance.

Finally, the home is also so expensive because of, well, what's inside.
