Aspen wood ceilings, clear dug fir floors, plush furniture, a sprawling open kitchen with tons of counter space, classic decor, a deep cast iron tub and 21' cathedral ceilings were some of the reasons why this home was featured in The Aspen Sojourner magazine mid winter 2008 edition under 'In style, off the Grid.'
Every window projects it's astonishing natural beauty into the house weather you are in bed, on the couch reading your favorite book, in the rocking chair by the wood stove, or enjoying cooking or eating a meal.
This solar home puts you on the very threshold of access to pure mountain beauty and ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES FOR ADVENTURE.
Beaver dams and a thriving riparian habitat are so close you can see trout rise on the lake. Mist and fog rises from the waterfall and settles into the valley offering dynamic and constantly changing scenery.
13,000 foot mountains surround, offering 360' views of rugged alpine scenery. In floor radiant heat is a feature offering comfort in the cold of winter along with a wood burning stove. Perched on a promontory you can look down 1000 feet to the river, water fall and lake and up 4000 feet to surrounding peaks and cliffs.
Although all types of activities are always beckoning we find we don't want to leave the house as being home affords the opportunity to observe in comfort and luxury, after any number of mini-adventures. Hawks, falcons, elk, deer and fox are commonly seen from the house. Rainbows, dramatic thunder storms, blue bird sunny days from this vantage point are common. The view out every window is a masterpiece. The cabin is in a very sunny south facing location; offering ample sunlight in the winter, great fall color viewing in the fall.
Marble peak is one of the most popular back-country ski destination in Colorado. Do a visual check off the deck as it is a peak just south of the house, about 3 miles away.
Hikes to the Crystal mill (one of the most photographed spots in Colorado) near the old mining town of crystal takes you along the crystal river on the way to lead king basin or Crested Butte for wonderful wild flower viewing, or watch the aspen turn colors in the fall. Lizard lake is along this road as well.
REDSTONE AND CARBONDALE CLOSE.
Soak in Penny hot springs or Avalanche ranch hot springs. A perfect destination for families, romance, reunions, weddings and retreats. We are open year-round, and it's always spectacularly beautiful in Marble. There are magnificent views then there are magnificent views, this is the latter!

About the owner: I built this house to be in the mountains, on a mountain and surrounded by mountains and for its proximity to cultural and artistic events, restaurants and conveniences. It is a place of healing and this has always been important to me. I have a degree in literature. General contracting....building solar homes etc, has been my livelihood for many years. Currently, I am a certified yoga instructor and have a studio called Coredination in Carbondale where we offer Pilates, Yoga, tap, modern dance. Ballet classes are offered through our ballet school Bonedale Ballet. Please contact us if you are interested in receiving Pilates or yoga classes or any other classes we offer. Rates and scheduling available upon request and we can arrange classes at the cabin. .
Why the Owner Chose Carbondale:
This house is in this special location because I was so inspired by the beauty that building it was non-negotiable. The location provides complete rejuvenation and inspires a deep connection to nature. This house is in a location where your mind can relax without distraction from the outside world. How rare in this day and age! Pick any mountain/alpine experience and it is here to refresh and invigorate you.
