Carbondale house description

This Crystal river home has been set up for comfort. Come sit on the swings by the white water river that runs along the property boundaries or hike through the National forest and Mt. Sopris in the back yard. Enjoy viewing the wildlife, bear, bighorn sheep, elk, deer, eagles and more as you walk along the three mile dirt road that runs along the river and leads to the property.

Come home to enjoy a warm fireplace, soft velvet sofas and big roomy armchairs. This home is custom-made in rich golds, deep reds and soft sage greens. Tapestries, goose downs and warm brass accents add to the ambiance. In the summer, turn out the lights and fall asleep to the rushing of the river after a long soak in the outdoor jacuzzi beneath the starlit sky.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1995

                              About the owner: I work in medical home health care mostly hospice care. As a young widow, I moved to the Aspen area to raise my son who is now grown. After he left I started the vacation rentals out of my house. I love making sure the guest have a great time and enjoy my home and the area.

                              Why the Owner Chose Carbondale:
                              I moved to the Aspen area because of the outdoor recreation and the relaxed pace. Since I was 7, I had always wanted a small farm on a river in Colorado. I love Jeeping and taking guest camping,fishing or sightseeing if they want a tour and if I'm available.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              When I do get time off, I love to work in the gardens on my property or in the barn with projects. I sometimes have a large organic veg. garden that I allow guest to pick their vegetables and salads from, some have even asked to work in it for fun and a few have even chopped wood. I guess that's fun to people who don't HAVE to do it. (-:
