Property description

LOCATED ON THE ROARING FORK RIVER, IN A GATED COMMUNITY in Carbondale, CO, this exquisitely furnished 5,400 sq ft home has beautiful European antiques and artwork. Gold Medal valley, Gold Medal fly fishing from property, outdoor Jacuzzi for 8, patio with BBQ, table and chairs, lower peaceful reading/lounging area adjacent to the river, ALL OVERLOOKING 13,000' MOUNT SOPRIS and the wetlands area for bird and animal watching.

IN ANY SEASON, FOR ANY REASON this is a vacation spot for multi-generational family, 'boys' fishing or ski trips, two family or wedding party groups. Situated in the valley between the many options in Aspen (skiing, hiking, festivals of classical music, jazz, food & wine, the intellectual programs of the Aspen Institute, fabulous restaurants and shopping) and Glenwood Springs (with it's Glenwood Caverns and Adventure Park, Colorado river rafting and canyon bike path, The famous Hot Springs Pool and water slide, the old Indian Vapor Caves and Spa, more good restaurants), this home is central to it all. Within 5 minutes are two excellent public golf courses and a skateboard park in the charming town of Carbondale. Whoops--more wonderful restaurants here and in Basalt, too! The home is adjacent to a new macadam bike path that goes from Aspen, through Basalt and Carbondale, to hook up with the Glenwood Colorado River bike path. A roundtrip bicycle ride of more than 50 miles is possible.

Really great stay at vacation home between Aspen and Glenwood Springs! 08/05/2010

VRBO Bear stayed here:

My family and I found this home away from home to be absolutely stunning. From the spacious floor plan to the gorgeous kitchen and million dollar views of Mt. Sopris, we were as close to heaven as we could get.

The beautiful architectural and decorating details in every room made us feel like we were in a home fitting a king. No detail was left out of this home that has special touches in every room. The beds and quality bedding were so comfortable; hibernating was a piece of cake! Each bedroom has its own private bathroom and cozy robes were available for everyone - a nice touch of luxury for every member of the family.

The backyard was nothing short of spectacular. The patio with ample seating for everyone was very comfortable. The owner obviously enjoys gardening and the fruits of her labor were lovely. We enjoyed waving at the fishermen going by on the river, a few even had fish! The Jacuzzi provided a relaxing oasis in the evening. We did not want to leave!

The home’s location was very convenient and close to shopping in both Glenwood Springs and Aspen. There are so many activities all year round, you will surely find plenty to do - not that you are going to want to leave this fantastic home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Having lived many places in the US and Europe, I have found this valley to be a place like none other. My spirit soars in the beauty of the surrounding nature, my brain is enlightened by the amazing Aspen Music Festival and Aspen Institute, my body is toned by the hiking, skiing, golfing and bicycling and my family and friends love the warmth of my home. Although coming here because of a dream, it has been beyond any dream I could have envisioned.

Why the Owner Chose Carbondale:
I lovingly built this home for myself, my family, friends and visiting guests on double bends of the river and across from a nature preserve, facing south to look at the beautiful Mt Sopris. This valley is exceptional and I am told my others, so is the house. Having lived in some world class cities, I have found world class opportunities here in this paradise called the Roaring Fork Valley. Like others, I love the local restaurants, farmer's markets and all things 'Nature' one can do here. Unique to this spot are the World Class music and lectures, skiing, hiking and biking that people from throughout the world seek out.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I hang out in the yard, sometimes gardening, sometimes reading, daily in the hot tub watching the sunset, the night sky or boaters coming down the river. In the summer, I love taking family and friends inner tubing down river from my house or hopping on my bike for a jaunt on the bike path. Golf is a favorite past time in summer and oft times I love a good hike into the high country. There is simply not enough time in the day for it all!
