Cemetery Lane Real Estate
Cemetery Lane is a special place. It is located just outside of the hustle and bustle of the town core and it allows for buyers to generally have larger lot sizes and more privacy. This area of town offers many homes with seventies inspired ski architecture, capturing a nostalgic aura of a classic time gone by. Vaulted A frame gabled living areas create massive vaulted ceilings while the wood finish makes these homes feel warm and cozy. These vaulted ceiling also allow for so much of that Rocky Mountain sunshine in, somehow it seems to magically snow here at night and be sunny during the day, which is how Aspen has over 300 days of sunshine a year with over 300 inches of snow a year, that is a great combination.
It is still a short walk, bike, or bus ride to the center of Aspen with your own bike path going directly into town. The Rio Grande paved bicycle/hiking path along the world famous Roaring Fork River (Gold Medal Waters) starts only a blocks away giving access to homeowners to a trail system that runs for some 45 miles. A fisherman’s paradise where you can walk right out your back door and be on the banks of some of the best fishing in the world, feeling like you are lost in the mountains, while being able to find yourself back at home in moments. The jewels of this area are the homes that are located right on the Roaring Fork River. The area has beautiful mature trees and some homes have views of the ski area.
On the opposite side of the neighborhood from the river is the Aspen Golf course. For golf lovers this means you can literally walk to the course, play 18 holes in finish in your own back yard. This gives you the opportunity to do the Aspen original “Triathlon”. In the spring you can literally ski in the morning, play golf in the afternoon and then catch the latest movie that evening at the Isis Theater. In the winter the golf course is home to the Aspen Cross Country Center, allowing residents to leave their home on skate or classic skis and access the over 90 km of groomed cross country trails in the area. The system is so well integrated you can go all the way from the Aspen Golf Course, across the Marolt Space, over to Buttermilk, though the rolling hills of Owl Creek and all the way to Snowmass without even having to take your skis off. You will never have an excuse not to be in the shape of your life again.
The neighborhood of Cemetery Lane is one with many families, creating a more classic American feel while still being deep in the mountains. There are small parks with basketball courts and kids riding their bikes. This part of Aspen can really feel like home. That is a home where you can hop on your mountain bike and disappear into the Hunter Creek Valley, or your road bike and cruise up to the Maroon Bells, life here really is something special. – Cemetery Lane Real Estate
