Carbondale house description

Come stay in our beautiful, custom built home. Play in the mountains all day and relax on the deck or in the hot tub with a glass of wine at night. Our home is located two miles south of Carbondale, just off of Prince Creek Road, only minutes from world class mountain biking, hunting, fishing and hiking.
Located on five acres, there is plenty of room for your horses and kids. Wander through the beautiful gardens or listen to the waterfall on the deck looking at Mt. Sopris and the Crystal River Valley.
The house is two levels with the master suite situated on the main floor with the kitchen, one of the living rooms, another bedroom and two bathrooms. The walkout, lower level has another living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom and the laundry room.
There are two homes on the 5 acre property. One is occupied full time by our mother, Francie. There is also a chicken house with fresh eggs, dogs, cats, and sometimes pigs and horses. Francie takes care of the animals and gardening. The rental house is located on the SW corner of the property and offers plenty of privacy.
Our house was featured in a straw bale book 'Strawbale Home Plans,' by Wayne Bingham and Colleen Smith. It was also the destination for a cooking show that was aired on the Cooking Channel. Please come and visit. Your stay in our home is sure to be memorable.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: We are a very active family. I hunt and play hockey. My wife, Robin, loves to hike and bike. We love to raft with our two children during the summer. We also ski and snowshoe in the winter. We maintain two houses on the property, one of which is our primary residence. We look forward to sharing this special place with you.

                          Why the Owner Chose Carbondale:
                          Carbondale is a beautiful, active area. There is hiking, skiing, hunting, fishing and rafting all within miles of our home. Our home, however, is a haven for rest and relaxation.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This property is located just out of town so it offers peace and quiet with the convenience of all that the area has to offer within minutes of driving.
