From the Zillow listing:


Own a piece of Hartsel history! This unique property is home to the original Hartsel Post Office! The main house boasts two bedrooms and an open floor plan. You’ll enter the home through the beautiful sunroom and step into the living room which has been restored, but still contains some original woodwork. The plentiful windows throughout the house allow you to enjoy the spectacular mountain views and the daily visit from the bison. There is a large dining room for entertaining that attaches to the luminous kitchen. The entire home was preserved with care and attention to detail. The original Hartsel Post Office, now the “Cabin”, contains the actual mail slots the Postmistress used. There is a section of the cabin that is used as an art studio but the possibilities of this building are endless. There’s even a small outhouse next to it! The oversized garage has workbenches, more storage than you can probably use and a man cave! The property is in town but sits at the end of the street for privacy and seclusion. The town of Hartsel offers two restaurants, a mercantile for all of your grocery essentials, a gas station with a small store, and an ambulance station. Hartsel is a central location to get to Breckenridge, Buena Vista, the Royal Gorge and Colorado Springs. Properties like this do not come along often and it won’t last!
