About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, sleeps 12

Large open dining room, kitchen, and living room upstairs takes advantage of the views and sunshine. Custom cherry cabinetry and flooring plus stainless steel appliances with commercial-style stove makes a beautiful and useful kitchen. Master, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms on the ground level can keep kids and parents near each other. The large basement holds two more bedrooms (one bedroom contains two bunk-beds, sleeping 4), one bathroom, laundry room, and roomy TV/exercise room. Outdoor grill on upstairs deck with room for summer dining (neighbors very near--no loud/large parties!)

Only 100 yards to the city bus and a ride of 4-8 minutes takes you into downtown Aspen.

About Craig Melville

We are owner-builders, so the home is custom with many unique aspects. We chose everything with family and longevity in mind. We hope you can come and try the Aspen lifestyle for a while and enjoy our comfortable home and neighborhood.

Craig Melville purchased this house in 2001

Why Craig Melville chose Aspen

The Cemetery Lane neighborhood is a wonderful conglomeration of micro-neighborhoods where people walk dogs, bike through to the trails, stroll to the golf course, and catch the bus into town or the ski hills. With very few second-home owners, it is a vibrant, friendly area.

What makes this house unique

Our lane is a quiet horseshoe in the center of the valley with plenty of sun and nearby recreation. Running, mountain biking, road biking, hiking, skiing (cross country on the golf course), and walking is available steps from the front door.

Perfect Aspen Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was better than the pictures show. Huge tri-level house with enormous bathrooms and awesome kitchen/living room space. I rented the place for 12 people to celebrate my 31st birthday and everyone had nothing but good things to say. Ample parking and solid location. The house was only a short walk away (down the block) from the bus to Aspen so we had easy access to skiing and downtown life. Craig was responsive, accommodating to our group, and refunded my security deposit in a reasonable amount of time. Thanks for helping to make it a wonderful time. Two things I would change: allow pets and a hot tub.
