Carbondale Real Estate

Demographics • Carbondale

Only about thirty-five miles down the Roaring Fork River from Aspen, Carbondale has become the mid-valley place to live. Home both to ranchers in white cowboy hats and sporto types in fleece, quaint Carbondale is set at the confluence of the Crystal and Roaring Fork Rivers and is anchored to the south by 12,953-foot (3,948-meter) Mount Sopris . The classic Rockies town is also home to new-school cool: A 13,000-square-foot (1,208-square-meter) skateboard park just opened, and a white-water park is in the works. Sopris, towering 6,783 feet (2,067 meters) above Main Street , claims what is perhaps Colorado 's greatest continuous vertical gain.

During the past ten years Carbondale has grown dramatically with additions like the golfing community development of River Valley Ranch. The old town area of Carbondale has been blessed with the addition of a couple of the finest restaurants in the Roaring Fork Valley . Carbondale also includes Missouri Heights, a mesa area north of Highway 82 for those that want some space and maybe a few horses. Here is where you can easily find a Colorado ranch for sale. Carbondale real estate continues to be an attractive buy for those wanting a mid-valley location.
