About the Property

Creekside, 5 1/2 Acre, Adobe Mountain Home: 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Hot Tub

This beautiful, light-filled, 4 bedroom, two bath, 2400 square foot home is situated on five and a half acres of mountain property nestled in old cottonwoods, fruit trees, beautiful gardens, a labyrinth and fountains and all with a creek running through it. The house is very much a sanctuary made of real adobe bricks covered with exquisite, marble-like plaster, large log beams, real corbels and all sorts of santa fe-like details. The kitchen is large with an island and adobe benches that look out through large picture windows towards the creek. The high-ceilinged living room is a wonderful place to relax while sitting by the adobe fireplace and bathed in sunlight streaming through french doors. A hot tub sits on a raised brick patio, overlooking the creek, where you can watch the abundant birdlife during the day and the stars at night. There is a spring-fed pond and many out-buildings on the property, including a barn once featured in the movie 'flash back'! The property is located on a popular road bike circuit and there is hiking on blm land right out the front door. It is less than fifteen minutes drive to carbondale and glenwood springs where you will find excellent dining and a world famous hot springs. Aspen, known for its great skiing in the winter and music and hiking in the summer is only 35 miles away. Or you can just stay put and enjoy the quiet days and star-filled nights, miles away from city lights and sound!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Janice and A.O. Forbes built and have lived in this adobe home since 1994. They both teach in Carbondale and have for the last 27 years. They have raised three children here along with several chickens and two lovely yellow labs. They love traveling and exploring the world as well as many outdoor activities.

Why the Owner Chose Carbondale, CO, USA:
After looking at several properties around the Roaring Fork Valley we fell in love with this property because of the privacy and the beautiful old growth Cottonwoods that have grown up around the creek. We love having ready access to the wilderness, the sound of the creek and the abundance of wildlife, while still being close to both Carbondale and Glenwood. Our home is our sanctuary and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are many unique benefits to our home. Daily we see several types of birdlife (turkeys, Blue Heron, Great Horn Owls, Eagles, Hawks) Falling asleep to the sound of the creek is always lovely. Due to the lack of light pollution the stars are exceptionally brilliant. It is quiet and serene both around the house as well as on many of the great walks and hikes available right from the door. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind!
