Glenwood Springs house description

At the end of the rainbow we designed, built, and completed our French Country style dream house in 2010 called A and H Wildflower Ranch. We have a sunny custom kitchen with lots of counter space and an open floor plan to the main living area and dining area, 2 master bedrooms that have either a patio or balcony, an additional bedroom with attached bathroom, an office, and atrium sun room. There are doors from all rooms leading to the exterior patios and decks that surround our home.

We have an inviting and open floor plan that provides lots of sunlight. The many windows throughout our home allow you to enjoy the spectacular views of Mt. Sopris, the 31 acres of open-space which includes a pond, the Roaring Fork River, as well as the Flattops Wilderness Area north of Glenwood Springs. Not only can you enjoy the views from the interior, but you can also relax outdoors while watching and listening to wildlife, birds, the stream, or consider the night sky from decks and flagstone patios that surround our home. Inside, there are little nooks with cozy spots for relaxing with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and a good book. We have an eclectic collection of books for browsing or reading and an assortment of games. Our custom kitchen has ample room for preparing, cooking, and visiting. Due to our stone and stucco exterior, the house remains comfortably cool even in the heat of summer without a swamp cooler, although we have ceiling fans in many rooms.

We are located halfway between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. Our neighborhood consists of acreages with most of our neighbors owning horses. This creates a peaceful country feel to our property. Our central location makes this a perfect place to stay allowing you to explore up and down the valleys, no matter your vacation preferences. There is something for everyone here in the heart of the Rockies.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Clay is a designer and builder. Cindy is an art teacher. We love to work, play and enjoy family and friends with our dog Ernie. We spend a lot of time outdoors gardening, hiking, camping, wildlife watching, swimming, kayaking, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, hunting and star gazing. We have thought about moving, but we love this area with the sunshine and climate too much to seriously consider going elsewhere. We prefer to invite family and friends to come and stay here instead!

                  Why the Owner Chose Glenwood Springs:
                  We bought this property in 2006 and designed and built our dream home on the 7 acres. We completed the building in 2010. We fell in love with this property as we walked the open-space and down to the pond and Roaring Fork River. We love the views from this end of the 7 acres. We are outdoor loving people and we have found ourselves within easy distance of a huge diversity of outdoor experiences year round. We are pass holders at the world famous Glenwood Hot Springs and know why the Utes called it Yampah or 'Big Medicine'. We like that we are approximately 10 minutes away. We placed the house on the edge of the open-space to maximize the views and the water feature. We have a stream running down in front of the south side of the house that provides a wildlife corridor year round. We have a wide variety of birds that live and eat here. We also enjoy the many species of mammals, such as, fox, deer, elk, bobcat, chipmunk, and rabbit just to name a few, that use this corridor.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have a fabulous view of Mt. Sopris. In addition, we have a trail that circles the whole subdivision. A section of the trail runs alongside the Roaring Fork River where you can walk, run, fish, skip rocks, enjoy watching the blue herons in their rookery, the nesting pair of ospreys, or the elk that winter along the river. There is a pond with a variety of waterfowl depending on the time of year you are here. You can walk, cross-country ski or snowshoe along the trail. In addition, we are 3 miles from the bike trail that follows the old RR tracks up and down the Roaring Fork Valley. This bike trail begins in Glenwood Springs and continues all the way to Aspen.
