Sitting at the base of Mt. Sopris, this remarkable timber framed chalet style home boasts soaring, vaulted ceilings and an abundance of magnificent views in all directions. Skylights capture sunlight by day and magical star-studded skies by night. Superior craftsmanship and artistry are everywhere you look, from impeccable log joinery and yacht quality cherry woodwork to custom handmade architectural tile murals created by the owner, an internationally known ceramist. The property itself is one of the most serene in the Roaring Fork Valley. The surrounding aspen groves attract a variety of wildlife including deer, elk, coyote, bear, fox, turkey and even the occasional moose. If you're looking for peace, privacy, and the freedom of being 'away from it all', this large 31-acre parcel, without a neighbor in sight and bordered by thousands of acres of BLM and national forest land is your dream come true. Hike to nearby Dinkle Lake for a swim or drive 15 minutes on a beautiful uncrowded country road to Basalt or Carbondale where a variety of fine dining options, boutiques, live music, Whole Foods, and vibrant community activities await you. You can have it all here but just in case you need to leave for a bit, Aspen/Pitkin County Airport, 30 minutes away, provides easy year-round access. Watch and fall in love with each season as it awakens you in spring with delicate green aspen buds, shades you in summer with emerald green, surrounds you with brilliant golden hillsides under bright blue skies in autumn and dazzles you with pristine crystalline snow drifts in winter. The property includes the main home with a 2-car garage and an attached ADU, a separate guest house with a 1,200 sq ft shop/garage, 2 tiny bonus structures, a greenhouse and a fully bear proof enclosure (for a small bee keeping business to maintain agricultural tax status if desired). There are no HOA regulations or dues, it is zoned RS-30 and has deeded water rights. Built and loved by one family for 45 years it is a jewel that must be seen and experienced to be fully appreciated for the unique charm and endless opportunity it has to offer.
