2071 County Road 112, Carbondale, Colorado, 81623
Roaring Fork Valley residents know that Missouri Heights is one of the best neighborhoods in the whole valley. This property is on County Road 112, near several well-known horse ranches and equestrian centers. The homes in the area are generally on parcels 5 acres or more. This home, originally built in 1980, was added onto and remodeled by its owner, who was a competent craftsman and carpenter. It has three bedrooms, two baths, a spacious living room with vaulted ceiling, and nice kitchen upstairs. Downstairs is a one-bedroom apartment with its own kitchen and living area. The downstairs apartment currently rents for $1,200 a month and would make an excellent AirBnB apartment.
This home has an excellent location, about 15 minutes to Glenwood Springs and 40 minutes to Aspen. All the recreation you can imagine is nearby, including world-class skiing in Aspen and Snowmass, kayaking, paddle-boarding, rafting, fly-fishing, big game hunting, hiking, nature photography, and any outdoor activity you can imagine. Carbondale is known as the heart of the Roaring Fork Valley, with many restaurants, a thriving arts and entertainment scene, good shopping, grocery stores, medical services, and two excellent golf courses. County Road 112 is a year-round paved road that follows Cattle Creek down to Highway 82, only 5 miles or so from Glenwood Springs, which has a world-famous hot springs pool, fairy caves, hotels, rafting on the Colorado River, and many tourist attractions. The Roaring Fork River, with its gold medal fly-fishing, is only 5 miles or from this home, and the Frying Pan River is just up the valley another 10 miles.
This property is a rarity in today's world, in that it is not part of an HOA. There are no onerous regulations about what kind of flag you can fly, whether or not you can have pink flamingos in your yard, whether you can operate a short-term rental out of the property, how many animals you can keep, etc. The property owner is bound only by county zoning regulations. There is only a road maintenance agreement with surrounding neighbors, and domestic water is supplied by a well that is shared with two other neighbors. Owners can keep horses, dogs, and 4H animals according to county regulations.
