Private Homes, East End house description

RIGHT IN ASPEN!!! Walk everywhere!

The goldfish/wildlife pond is just outside the kitchen sliding door. Big, sunny views of Aspen Mountain and the fabulous Roaring Fork River from all common living areas, the hot tub deck and the garden flag- stone and brick patio sitting area. Private, off street, quiet location, yet lots of on site parking. Country like, peaceful, rural feel, yet within walking distance to downtown Aspen!!! Sleeps 8 comfortably in a king, queen, and 4 twin beds! Fully accessorized!

The stunning Rio Grande paved bicycle/hiking path along the world famous Roaring Fork River (and gold medal trout fishing water!!) starts only a block away at the children's favorite playground, lovely Herron City Park (on the river!)... and local favorite Smuggler Mountain Road hiking/mountain biking trail is conveniently located in the neighborhood.

Cathedral ceilings, 2 wood burning fireplaces, antiques, a central sound system, beautiful artwork and a lovely complete furnishing package make for a comfortable just-like-home ambiance. Hardwood floors, slab granite counter tops and kitchen island, golden oak kitchen cabinets,stacked washer/dryer, brand new state-of-the-art Braun dishwasher all make for a very contemporary family friendly home away from home. Pets welcome with references. Smoking, even though you shouldn't be, is only allowed outdoors away from any open doors or windows to be respectful of the good health decisions of others.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Aspen is a special place that I have lived in and enjoyed since the early 1970's! I would love to share my lovely Aspen home and extensive local knowledge with you! Jeff PS: Please see below for more information.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, East End:
                  You can't beat the lifestyle and all the activities available in Aspen year around! While Aspen is really a small town with a year around population of less than 10,000 people, we enjoy some big city attractions! There is World Cup quality alpine skiing and snow boarding on 4 different ski areas, top quality cross country skiing on several groomed courses, mountain biking and horse back riding, hiking, mountain climbing ranging from the 14ers in the area to wonderful family hikes and some of the best road biking in the world. Also mountain biking, tennis, great golf courses, excellant work out facilities and then comes the unsurpassed dining, shopping, and cultural activities including drama, art, and music and much, much, more! Speaking of music, Aspen's world reknown Music Festival celebrated it's 64th Anniversary in 2013!!...that goes all the way back to 1949!!!! Quite an accomplishment that we are very proud of. Aspen's long and storied history is part of what separates us from the others. Aspen is almost 135 years old and has loads of 100+ year old Victorian houses and commercial buildings to prove it... and it is still going strong!!!!!!! This summer the music festival runs from approx. mid June to mid August, 2014, but please call the music festival directly for exact dates and complete schedules at: 970 925 9042. Check out just one of the many things we love about Aspen! It is truly spectacular and has numerous fabulous performances featuring the world's best classical musicians and is definately not to be missed! See below for more information.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  From the subject property it is just a stroll to downtown Aspen to enjoy all the amazing restaurants, shops, and boutiques! With the sights and sounds and ambiance that only Aspen can offer, including the unbelievable fresh alpine air enhanced by fresh bakeries, horse drawn carriages and world class fresco outside dining on the pedestrian malls in summer, we've got it all.... and at 8,000 feet above sea level, you can feel the cool breezes and enjoy a wonderful cool night's sleep and get away from the summer heat that is every where else!!! Enjoy the historic ski runs that come right into town, just like you see in the finest European resorts, great for hiking too, or just for taking in the spectacular views from the year around Gondola service to the top of Aspen Mountain. Or you can relax in our lovely home, stretch out, kick back, and read a book on your own large, private deck, complete with hot tub, BarBQue, and romantic dining/cocktailing area. Flowers galore in the summer and lots of fresh powder in the winter!! After a long day of skiing or hiking, biking or rafting, golfing or fishing in one of our numerous gold medal trout streams and rivers, or shopping and meandering around the lovely, quaint Victorian town, you can relax in the outdoor hot tub melting the worries away while taking in the beauty and splender that only world class Aspen, Colorado can offer! Sit back!! Relax!! Enjoy!! This is the Aspen Idea at it's finest, and it is all available to you now. Mind........Body......Spirit!... the Aspen Idea since 1949! Please give us a call now for booking or additional information. Jeffrey Shoaf, owner, HOPEFULLY, I'LL BE TALKING TO YOU SOON AND MAKING YOUR RESERVATION HERE IN PARADISE!!
