RiveRoar, a 3,298-square-foot architectural gem located at 4076 Lower River Road, Snowmass, CO 81654 for $5.25 million. Built in 2004 at a mere 10 feet from the Roaring Fork River’s edge, the home resides where no other home can ever be built in Pitkin County, due to current codes requiring a 100-foot setback. This is the first time the home, which has been featured in numerous magazines and can be seen in Aerin Lauder’s recent book “Aspen Style,” has been offered for sale.
With a feeling of being “on the water,” the home, which resembles a glass tree-house, features three bedrooms and three and one-half baths. It boasts 200 feet of water frontage, as well as 650 square feet of garage space within a detached 2-car garage, and 764 square feet of deck. David Johnston’s award-winning architectural team designed the home. Surrounded by more than 20, 75-foot evergreen trees and offering views from every room, the residence sits on a 21,780-square-foot lot, and offers extensive outdoor spaces and mountain/valley views, ideal for those who love the outdoors and fishing.
The home’s cantilevered dining room window overlooks the beauty of the river. Conveniently located in the Aspen School District and on the Rio Grande Trail, this home is perfect for viewing bald eagles and blue heron by binoculars. Bears, deer, bobcats, weasels and otters commonly wander up and down the river bank. The home features two fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, open kitchen with slab counters and center island, wet bar, bar, master en-suite, fire pit, snow-melt driveway, hot tub/spa, indoor jetted tub, outdoor hot tub/spa, security system and more.
RiveRoar boasts a design and location that can never be replicated. In Aspen, water views are rare because there are a limited amount of riverfront parcels. This home is unique in that it sits so close to the river’s beauty. It’s perfect for summer, a second home or a year-round residence.
