About the Property

3 BR + / 3.5 Bath Custom Built Home on Crystal River

Welcome to your Crystal River Enclave - A peaceful retreat awaits you overlooking the river! Step out the french doors to the flagstone patio and enjoy the views of the beautiful Crystal River in the backyard and spectacular Ragged and Chair Mountain Peaks.

Indulge in Indoor and Outdoor spaces designed for relaxing in extravagance, while vacationing in this scenic and serene setting, surrounded by mountains and beautifully landscaped gardens adjacent to the river.

Dine at the fire pit, on the river deck or the covered flagstone patio while listening to the song birds and river. Or, choose to feast inside in the great room with the fire crackling and the 8' surrounding windows highlighting the peaks to the south and river to the east. The great room is comprised of the kitchen, large island, dining table and seating area with down sectional and corner fireplace. With more than 24' feet of glass the views are outstanding and bring the outside in.

The library fireplace is toasty and warm while cuddling up with one of the many selections from the well stocked bookshelves.

The gourmet kitchen affords even the most picky chefs with the accouterments to create a lavish meal - you can even pick fresh herbs from the garden or grill the fish you caught in your backyard. Use the Viking stove or grill on the gas BBQ to prepare your feasts.

The Master Bedroom affords 13' of glass overlooking the Crystal River. You will feel as if you are sleeping in a luxurious hotel - outdoors! The king size Tempur-Pedic bed with 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and the sound of the river out your window will lull you to sleep. The ensuite bath is accessed through antique Chinese sliding doors where your air tub, under a candle wall, affords star gazing views at night. The steam and rain shower will rejuvenate you after a hard day of relaxing on the river deck!

The large upstairs queen bedroom with plush pillow top mattress and 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets offers its own retreat looking out to the south and north. The stone and tiled bath offers separate shower and tub and large vanity area.

The lower level queen bedroom offers the comfort of an adjustable air baffled mattress for more or less firmness on each side of the bed with separate controls for each guest. An adjacent bath has a custom tiled shower.

The lower level media room with surround sound and 100 DVD library is perfect for a rainy day.

The upstairs also has an office which could be utilized as an extra guest room with an inflatable bed (bed and linens are available). This room would then share the upstairs bath. Otherwise, relax in the cozy chair and read a book looking out at Ragged Peak.

Come and enjoy the hammock at the Crystal River Enclave!

Located minutes from the West Elk Loop Scenic Byway, this home is situated on the Crystal River with 360 degree views of the Elk Mountain Range. Close to Marble and Redstone, but only 20 minutes from Carbondale, this home offers a serene, river front setting close to many amenities.

The Crystal and Roaring Fork Valleys are known for spectacular Mountain & Road Biking, Jeeping, Hiking, Skiing, Rafting, Gold Medal Fly Fishing, Rock Climbing and simply relaxing by the Crystal River!

This hideaway is conveniently located five minutes south of historic Redstone, where you can visit the old fashioned General Store for fresh ice cream, the historic Redstone Castle for a tour, the Redstone Inn for poolside dining or the numerous art galleries, or conquering the 'bouldering park' on the outskirts of Redstone.

Marble Town, six miles to the east on a winding country road, offers jeep tours and four wheel drive access to the Lead King Loop and famous Crystal Mill Site. Several galleries are located in Marble, as is the historic Marble Mill Site, Beaver Lake, and delicious Slow Groovin BBQ, where the smoker is always HOT and the beers COLD. During 3 weeks in July/August when Marble/Marble is in symposium, you can view world class artist carvers creating unique art in an amazing 'outdoor studio' along a winding path aside the Crystal River.

Kayakers and Fly Fisherman will love the back yard access to the Crystal River. As will the avid bird- watcher, wild-life seeker or the relaxing reader, who wants to sit on the river deck and enjoy the serenity.

Surrounded by the White River National Forest, access to many hiking trails is within 5-10 minutes. Whether a short hike is preferred or a day hike to Crested Butte or Geneva Lake is your style, the options are unlimited for the novice hiker to hard core mountaineer to the experienced rock climber.

The beautiful Avalanche Ranch & Hot Springs are located just 9 miles north on Hwy 133. Visitors can enjoy these beautiful serene, natural hot springs for a daily fee. Local crafts are available in their gift shop.

Carbondale, located 20 minutes down 133, offers many fine dining establishments, a movie theatre, brew pub, several bars, the PAC3 venue hosting nationally acclaimed artists, fly-fishing and rafting outfitters and grocery / retail shops. The public River Valley Ranch golf course received Golf Magazine's prestigious 'Top 10 You Can Play' listing.

Glenwood Springs is a short 40 minute drive where the world famous Glenwood Hot Springs and Ski Sunlight are located. The Glenwood Caverns and Amusement Park offer cave tours and rides for every age via access up the scenic tramway.

Across McClure Pass, you can reach several wineries for tours in the Paonia area only 45 minutes away. Cross over Kebler Pass, just after McClure, and you will be in Crested Butte after a beautiful drive through the world's largest aspen grove.

Aspen is only 15 miles as the bird flies (HIKING!) but a short 1 hour drive - less than 60 miles via car.

Vail is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes through the scenic Glenwood Canyon.
