The entire valley that extends from the town of Basalt to Aspen has magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and to the Roaring Fork River. The Roybal Corporation was asked to design a house with a contemporary interpretation of western Colorado architecture.  The use of an interior-exposed heavy timber structure, combined with a wood board and batten exterior and a rustic wood and metal roof provides the foundation for the design.  This house is designed to display the use of expansive spaces that provide scenic views of the surrounding vistas of the Aspen Valley.  The main floor is entered through an expansive foyer that links to the entrance gallery.  On axis with the entrance foyer is a large stone fireplace facing the Great Room.  The Great Room is two stories in height and provides panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.  The large Master Suite, the Master Bathroom and walk in closets define the perimeter of the main level.  The main level also contains a study, the dining room, the kitchen, a pantry, a laundry, a mud room, a large three-car garage and work room.  A grand staircase takes you to the second floor, which includes the major guest room and bathroom.  The recreation room is also located on the second floor, along with two additional bedrooms, each containing its own bathroom.   The house has large exterior patio decks, a large covered front porch, and upper floor exterior balconies.
