• Your Castle in New Castle, CO

  • $609,000
This large semi-custom home possesses that sine qua non: location, location, location. It is at the end of a cul-de-sac on the edge of town and the edge of BLM land. This gives privacy, views of nature ... and the Colorow Trail just out the back door for hiking and mountain biking. The house has about 3500 sq ft of living space; we enclosed a large deck with removable windows to provide a wintertime passive solar feature, hot tub room and greenhouse. Other green additions include a 4.8 Kw solar PV installation and a solar thermal system which is supplemented by a 95% efficient gas boiler. A re-circulator in the hot water system adds to the energy efficiency. The in-floor radiant heating is quieter and cleaner than forced air.

The lawns have drought resistant grasses with sprinkler irrigation. The solar PV is owned, not leased, and there is a transferable electricity buy-back agreement with Xcel Energy. There are green-space hills with trees front and back, neighbors are only to the sides.

There are 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, living room and dining room; family room and breakfast nook adjoin the kitchen. Above the 3-car garage is a bonus room with bath ... perfect for a large office, workspace, playroom or even a 5th bedroom. There is tile or laminate in the high traffic areas; carpet in the bedrooms, living room and formal dining room. The home is well set-up for entertaining. Granite countertops, black steel appliances, surround sound and security system are added upgrades.

Storage is more than ample. The huge stand-up crawl space has a heated concrete slab, a walk-out sliding door and radon mitigation. Outdoor storage is also available under the deck; the dog run has garage access. New Castle is plagued with expansive soils, and foundation movement occurs in most areas. Here we have mitigated by recent installation of piers all around, down to bedrock. (All the engineering and
construction records available.)

World-class fly-fishing for trout is available within minutes on the Colorado, Roaring Fork and Frying Pan rivers. Warm water species of good size abound in nearby State Parks. New Castle is a gateway to the Flattops Wilderness: nordic skiing and snowmobiling on groomed trails a short 16 miles away, big and small game hunting in Area 33. Aspen, Snowmass and Vail all within about an hour drive.

The utilities include city water, sewer and trash; there is city street maintenance. We are walking distance to RE-2 elementary and middle schools. The unobtrusive HOA has $70 annual dues. $609,000. Showing by appointment: (970) 274-3251 or 274-3250. Call or email for showing or more information: fischerdedog@sopris.net.
