This old Main Street commercial building in Colorado (and the old town jail building behind it) have been converted into amazingly creative spaces.
The main building currently houses a bistro and a private residence upstairs, while the stone jailhouse out back is now a small art gallery.
Have a look at the storefront building…
Built in 1890 on East Main Street in the Colorado Mountain town of Buena Vista, this building is currently listed for sale at $800,000.
It has a total of 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms in 5,330 square feet.
The main floor of the old building is currently home to a hip little cafe called Mother’s Bistro (more info on Mother’s Bistro here).
They did a bang-on job of renovating and rehabbing the lower level to showcase the character and personality of the place.

On the upper level, there is a residential apartment with lots of vintage character.
The crowning feature of this wonderful historic property is the old former jailhouse out back…
It is currently being used as an art gallery, aptly named Jailhouse Arts Gallery & Studio (you can view their website here).
Love the exposed stone walls!
Hope you had a good week!
We are still riding the roller-coaster of having our house on the market – which, as you might know, is NO FUN at all!
We are going to try to do a little getaway this weekend… something to do with hotsprings in the Colorado Rockies… I’ll try to take pics but I may just forget the camera and relax this time!
Have a good weekend!
