The home is located in a beautiful setting in the Frying Pan River Valley. The Frying Pan River flows into the town of Basalt, which is about halfway between Glenwood Springs and Aspen. The valley is home to several species of wildlife, and is known world-wide for exceptional fly-fishing.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: My wife and I are Blessed to be raising our 2 boys in this magical setting.
Why the Owner Chose Basalt: Our home is in an amazing, rural and private setting, yet is only a 35 minute drive to Aspen. There too many activities to list within 30 minutes of the house, and the views are just spectacular.
The Unique Benefits at this House: A property manager lives on site, and cooking and daily cleaning can be easily arranged. Flyfishing gear (rods, reels, waders, etc) are available to use at no charge (I do ask for an additional security deposit for this privilege).
