It is tastefully furnished and nicely appointed, complete kitchen, and great bedding and linens. There is also a library of interesting books.

Located in Missouri Hts.,700 ft above the valley floor, with fantastic Mt. Sopris, Snowmass Wilderness and Little Elk Range views. This is an excellent mid-valley location in a quiet older neighborhood, surrounded by open space and ranches.

PERFECT FOR FISHER MEN & WOMEN, within minutes of three Gold Medal Trout Fishing Rivers-The Frying Pan, Roaring Fork and Crystal. We can arrange the best fishing guides for you or help you go out on your own.

7 miles to Basalt and the Frying Pan, 11 to Carbondale and the MOUNTAIN FAIR or local RODEO, 19 miles to GLENWOOD HOT SPRINGS POOL & CAVES & rafting, 25 miles to Aspen/Snowmass for the MUSIC FESTIVAL, Hot Air Ballon Festival, Snowmass Rodeo, and the best outdoor sports. 2½ miles down the hill to GREAT restaurants, City Market and movie theater in El Jebel, 2½ miles back to Basalt Mountain hiking, biking, horseback riding and backcountry adventures.

Depending on availability we can guide you on the trails we know, or also arrange other trail rides with different companies if you don't have your own horses. All horses must have current vaccination, deworming and Coggins records. I am a Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT) and have many skills in caring for your horses, plus direct contact with local vets, should the need arise.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: I moved from Minnesota to the Roaring Fork Valley in 1987. As a life long artist, I have been designing and building award winning leather bonded furniture since my daughter was born in 1991. My studio is here on the property. I have just completed 3 years at CMC-our local community college-getting a degree in Veterinary Technology. My daughter and I have shared our home with many friends, dogs, cats and horses over the years. We love to ride horses, and mess about with the animals.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carbondale:
                  I have been privileged to live in the Roaring Fork Valley since 1987and I have lived in this house since 1990. After raising my daughter who is now nearly 20, I want to share this wonderful place with other people.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  This is a very down to earth, sweet place in the world. Beautiful, comfortable, friendly. You can be out and about all day and come back with friends and make your own indoor/outdoor dinner, or have some peace and quiet, read a book and watch the sunsets. You can enjoy a morning cup of coffee and a walk around the neighborhood or walk up to Spring Park Reservoir. There is so much to do , and yet you don't have to do anything but slow down and enjoy the scenery.
