what: A thoroughly charming family home, with beautiful grounds, on a tree-lined street in one of our community’s loveliest neighborhoods. Designed with Aspen’s ranching and mining heritage in mind, this home’s exteriors meld reclaimed barnwood, stone, shake and corrugated metal into a house which fits impressively well within its landscaped setting. Recently renovated, this house has an open floorplan on its upper level with a light-filled great room featuring a fireplace and hardwood floors, a huge kitchen with a center island ideal for gathering around, as well as a formal dining room and access to a large deck with a fire pit and numerous built-in flowering planters. The master suite on this floor is gracious and private. On the main level below, also with hardwood floors, is a quiet study, plus a delightful family/TV room, around which are two ensuite bedrooms for children or guests. Downstairs is a third guest bedroom suite with its own exterior access, plus a big multi-purpose room which is presently outfitted with exercise equipment. Best of all is the great backyard, surrounded by mature aspens and evergreens and fenced for children and pets to play freely.
where: Just off of Cemetery Lane on a cul-de-sac street in the West Meadow development, where catching the school bus or cross-town shuttle is easy and a network of hiking and biking trails is around the corner.
why: A warm and delightful home, ideally located for a family always on the go and on a street where kids play together and every neighbor watches over the other.
