Basalt house description

Beautiful home on arguably the best street in Basalt! An easy walk to downtown Basalt, where you will find lots of restaurants, shops, library, art galleries, market, yoga, and the bus stop. Only 15 minutes to Aspen & worldclass skiing, 20 minutes to Glenwood Springs & the Hot Springs, close to hiking, walk to river for fishing, & 5 mins to golf.

The home sits on a 1/3 of an acre and backs up to open space. This home features a family room off the entry with TV & DVD player and access to the side/back yard. A nice powder room right off the family room. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need and offers granite counter tops and 2 breakfast bars that seats 2 on one side and 4 on the other. A desk area in the kitchen is a great place where you can use your laptops as we offer free wi fi. White oak wood floors are in all the common living areas. The dining area seats 6 and opens out onto the backyard where there's an outside table that seats 6 plus a gas BBQ. Kitchen opens up to the spacious living room with cathedral ceilings, gas fireplace and access to a side covered patio with swing and small table with seating for 3. The comfy sofa in the living room pulls out into a queen size bed for an extra sleeping area if needed. There's a TV, DVD & VCR in the living room and we offer cable TV (Dish Network) with HD & movie channels for your enjoyment plus tons of movies on BluRay DVD, DVD and VHS to watch during your stay. There's a queen blow-up mattress and sleeping bag that can be used if needed.

There are 3 guest bedrooms downstairs on the main level of the home (only 2 small steps take you into the main level of the home). The guest bath with marble flooring is off the hallway and serves the 2 guest bedrooms. One guest bedroom has Ralph Lauren decor and features 2 twin beds with down comforters, quilts, ceiling fan, walk-in closet, black out shades for privacy and 2 windows for lots of light when wanted plus a TV and DVD player. The 2nd guest bedroom is Shabby Chic and features a queen bed with down comforter, walk-in closet, a portable fan if needed plus a flat screen TV, DVD player & VCR.

Upstairs is the HUGE master suite! The landing upstairs offers a library of books to read and enjoy during your stay. The master bedroom features a king size bed with down comforter and lots of pillows, cathedral ceilings, ceiling fan, black out shades for privacy plus tons of windows for light and air.

A balcony off the bedroom offers a sitting area with amazing views of Mount Sopris. The large master bath offers marble top counters with his and hers sinks, large steam shower, separate commode area and lots of counter space.

The fabulous backyard has a waterfall and pond that offer a soothing sound you can hear from all the bedrooms (not on in the winter months). A swing set play area and a trampoline (please supervise all children when using the trampoline) in the backyard is great for the kids to enjoy. You can walk out the back gate (or front) and walk to town, park or pool. In the winter there's an awesome sledding hill right out the backyard and there are several sleds to use while you are here. Come, relax and enjoy your stay in the beautiful Rocky Mountains!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We absolutely love this home and come here every winter, summer & sping break. We enjoy the master suite upstairs with views of Mt. Sopris and the privacy and space it offers. There is tons of space for everyone and the kids love the backyard with the pond, waterfall, swing set, and trampoline. They enjoy sledding in the winter on the hill just behind our house. We often walk to town for dinner, breakfast or to the local market. There's a great Farmers Market on Sunday, Music in the Park or the countless events the local shops or restaurants offer. It's only 15 minutes to Aspen Mountain, Highlands, Snowmass or Buttermilk where we hike and ski.

                      Why the Owner Chose Basalt:
                      We lived in Basalt for over 10 years and we love it! During that time, we updated & redecorated the home to make it comfortable and welcoming. The home is located on what is known as the 'Best Street in Basalt' since the street runs along the Frying Pan River and is minutes to town. This home is located across the street from the River and backs up to open space. Plus it's walking distance to all the great shops, restaurants and events in Basalt.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The home offers lots of space with 3000 square feet. With 3 beautifully decorated guest bedrooms on the main level and the large master suite upstairs plus a family room, living room and with the space outside; there is room for everyone. We love how quiet it is yet just minutes to town. We enjoy the landscaping and how beautiful the flowers are in the spring. We love the amazing summers when we can walk to the town pool or visit the farmers market on the weekends or pick raspberries, strawberries or herbs from our garden. The fall colors are amazing and it's great how close the home is to the famous Maroon Bells. And of course we love the amazing winters where we all go sledding on the hill behind the house or drive 15 minutes to world class skiing or snowboarding. This truly is an amazing place! We feel so lucky to be able to come here as often as we can.
