                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: We split our time between Denver and Carbondale. Robert is a retired Professor of Human Services at Metropolitan State University of Denver and Robin still teaches full time in the Human Services Department at Metro.Most of our time, when we are in Carbondale, is spent fishing, hiking and biking this magnificent valley , listening to music at the Aspen music festival , and watching sunsets in our beautiful backyard.

                      Why the Owner Chose Carbondale:
                      We have always loved the Roaring Fork Valley, each town having its own unique personality and style. We have been coming here for the past 30 years, hiking and biking and camping. When this beautiful home was up for sale we couldn't resist. It was the best decision we could have made !

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Upon first look, we were overwhelmed by the beautiful views from each and every window. This was a house that brought the outdoors, indoors. We fell in love instantly !
