This 5000 square foot residence backs up to the Fryingpan River in a quiet subdivision in Basalt Colorado. The house enjoys beautiful views of the surrounding mountains from Basalt mountain in the North to Sopris mountain in the West. The back yard has direct access to the gold medal fishing river in the back.
The lot is rather long and narrow and this natural axis is maintained in the floor plan by lining up the front entry with the bridge great room and fireplace creating a natural progression from the entry to the back of the house. Doors on either side of the fireplace open the Great room up to the large back yard completing the picture.
The house is 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths. The guest master is on the ground floor with access to back yard. Master is on the upper floor along with two other bedrooms. Two of the upstairs bedrooms have decks facing the river and the third facing the street has deck sheltered by the roof form for privacy.
Downstairs features a Media room/Den and a Flex room that can be used for an office or exercise room.
Although the house is located in a very quiet neighborhood and surrounded by nature it is actually just a few minutes walk from downtown Basalt.
House is scheduled for completion in Summer 2009.
