Property description

Come feel the ambiance of Old Mexico in this spacious hacienda-style home with large, arched windows capturing 180 degree views of Mt. Sopris & the Frying Pan & Roaring Fork River Valley. Marble, granite, tile, limestone & large, log vigas enhance the interior design. Enjoy the amenities of the dramatic Great Room with the spacious high ceilings, fully equipped kitchen, dining room & inviting, sunken living room with the Natural Boulder fireplace & Indoor Atrium. Relax in the large, comfortable family room that host a TV, DVD & Stereo system with surround sound installed in both living areas as well as the outside veranda. Three, large bedrooms with queen beds await you at days end. The master bed & bath hosts a marble jacuzzi tub, skylight & access to the back veranda & gardens.

Breathe the clean, fresh mountain air as you meander among multi-tiered gardens with elaborate stone walkways & viewing platforms totally surrounded by open space. Dine on one of three enchanting patios to the serenade of a tranquil stream & waterfall. Glimpse the occasional wildlife as they traverse through this park like setting.

While surrounded by all this nature, the town of Basalt rests within walking distance & offers unique boutiques, art galleries & a sumptuous variety of exceptional restaurants. Aspen & it's sister resort, Snowmass Village, with their world renowned ski slopes & shops are 20 miles south while Glenwood Springs & it's Olympic size natural, hot springs pool & vapor caves lies 22 miles north of Basalt.

Whether you enjoy the activities of winter or summer, this home will welcome you at the end of the day & you will return home from your vacation refreshed & rejuvenated. Come, experience the magic of Basalt's HILLSIDE HACIENDA. ( If interested in relocating to the valley, inquire about possible purchase options.)

Oh, and contrary to what VRBO rates my reponse time to inquiries, I respond within the day of receiving an inquiry; I just don't do it through VRBO's site. I like to keep my contact with prospective guests private.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: John & I have lived here for 35 years. We had a stone company specializing in marble, granite, tile & masonry. John designed & remodeled the home in 1998. We retired a year ago & now spend most of our time visiting our children & grandchildren who are scattered from Washington state to New Mexico. We also enjoy volunteering with Habitat for Humanity & traveling.

Why the Owner Chose Basalt, CO, USA:
As a child, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area & fell in love with the mountains when visiting family in Lake Tahoe. When the opportunity arose to move to Colorado, I jumped at it. Going from the fast pace of the city to the snail pace of the country took quite an adjustment. The population of Basalt was about 500 people; the perfect place to raise a family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Even though the population has increased, Basalt still remains a small, peaceful, mountain town. I love waking up in the morning & looking out at the majestic, snowcapped mountain across the valley. You can't help but breathe a deep sigh of relief at the peace & quiet that surrounds you. As you walk outside, you may be greeted by two or three deer grazing on the grass or the gobble of a flock of wild turkeys sharing the hillside with you. Mother Nature never fails to amaze me. I love it here & I'd love to share what this property has to offer with others.
