Aspen Mountain Views!
From its silver mine beginnings to its current recognition as an international playground for the rich and famous, Aspen, Colorado is one of the first towns that come to mind when thinking snow skiing U.S.A. Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands and Snowmass have long been popular with ardent skiers. Now with lavish ski homes, some second and third vacation homes for celebrities and top executives, along with upscale boutique shops and restaurants rubbing elbows, Aspen is no longer affordable for the low and middle class residents of John Denver’s time. Instead, real estate prices are said to be some of the highest in the country, running the not as fortunate into towns and villages further away. Though many give a nod to Breckenridge and other area ski resorts, Aspen is really where they want to be.
Now for sale is one of these glamorous homes barely outside of town and on one of the most popular streets, very privately located at the edge of a wooded pond. The 11,437-square-foot residence sits on 2.5 acres providing ample room for entertaining or daydreaming by the pond. With six bedrooms and ten baths, there is more than enough room for extended family and friends to share. Completely away from the main living area is a children's wing with staff quarters and screening room adding to functional use of space. The living room, sitting room, dining room and recessed bar flow around a large stone two-sided fireplace. Located at the foot of Red Mountain, views of Aspen Mountain are seen through the large, panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. For more information.
