Property description

Master bedroom has King Bed, second upstairs bedroom has Queen Bed and private or semi-private well-appointed bathrooms. Downstairs bedroom has one queen bed and full bathroom. All rooms have top-quality furnishings and linens.

The open kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances and every gadget a chef could need.

The home has 2 large deck areas with mountain and river views. The decks have outdoor dining and sitting furniture and a BBQ.

Angling guests can be standing in the Frying Pan River 1 minute from the house. Out the back door is a wonderful 45 minute scenic hike to a waterfall, beginning on a historic wagon-train trail. There is also a small rock climbing area a short (15 minute) walk out the back door. Road bike riders will enjoy the 15 mile ride from Basalt to Ruedi reservoir, one of Colorado's most scenic rides. There is also great mountain biking nearby.

A tremendous amount of wildlife resides in the Frying Pan Valley. Sightings of Elk, Mule Deer, Bighorn Sheep, Bear, Coyote, Fox, and Bald and Golden Eagles are common. Bighorn sheep, Mule Deer, and Wild Turkeys are often right on the property.

A property manager lives on-site.

Owner info

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).
