About the Property

This Beautiful Estate Home with 4 Bedrooms and 3.5 Baths on TwoAcres on stream.

Located near the banks of the Roaring Fork River, only 20 minutes form Aspen and Snowmass and immediately adjoining a Forest Service park and Crown Mountain park this home offers more than a nice place to stay. Whole Foods market and Willits Town Center are an easy stroll (less than a mile). You can ice skate in winter or swim in summer on the neighborhood pond located 100 yards away from the home. Rainbow trout sip at flies surfacing on the pond in the back yard while adventurous minded participants use the Zipline from the tree fort to enjoy the back yard experience year round. Seven fine restaurants including Smoke BBQ, Zheng Asian Bistro, El Korita Mexican, Sure Thing Burgers, Downvalley Tavern, Bella Mia Italian are all within walking distance. The Movieland Cinema with seven screens and ElJebowl bowling alley are also within walking distance or a short two mile car ride away. Bristlecone Sports and Basalt Bike and Ski are next to Whole Foods with the latest mountain related gear available. Great kitchen, home and design stores are walking distance also. Historic downtown Basalt with its myriad restaurants, art galleries and charming boutiques are four miles away. Aspen and Snowmass offer the finest skiing in the world along with excellent dining and cultural offerings and are an easy drive or use accessed via the RFTA public bus system voted one of the finest transport systems in the country. Some of the best hiking and mountain biking in the country is right out the front door and world class Gold Medal Trout fishing on the Roaring Fork River is a 200 yard walk and the famous Frying Pan River is a five minute drive from the house.

Car: Recommended

Located 200 yards from the Roaring Fork River, on a spring creek with Whole Foods one mile away and the Resorts of Aspen/Snowmass just a 20 minute drive - this gem of a location offers immediate hiking trail access, world class fly-fishing, skiing and culture. Historic Basalt and Willits Town Center offer a plethora of fine dining establishments. The movie theatre and bowling alley, along with Whole Foods Market and City Market are all walking distance from this home. There is not better jumping off point to explore the Colorado Rockies or simply hang out and enjoy a good read.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a Colorado native and my family and I have made the Aspen valley home for 23 years. My wife and three girls love where we live and embrace the mountain lifestyle we have chosen with enthusiasm. Hopefully we can share our wonderful home with you for brief time.

Why the Owner Chose Basalt, CO, USA:
Our home is just that - a home - very comfortable - inviting and enjoyable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Small town living for big city people is how we describe where we live. It is a wonderful place to visit with all the amenities of an urban existence with fresh Rocky Mountain air, crystal clear rivers, incredible hiking, biking, skiing and culture right out the front door.
