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.
