Aspen, Colo. is perched at a brisk 7,908 feet. The housing market in this mountainous region is also at the top of its game.
You’ll see why it’s the ultimate destination for the wealthy once you’ve finished drooling over this palatial 2014 Aspen mansion.
The main house boasts 13,000 square feet. It expands to about 17,000 square feet after you include the 2-bedroom guesthouse and the caretaker’s quarters. Plenty of space to host your in-laws, your extended family, your old college roommate and a few hired hands.
This expansive house is surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Roaring Fork Valley. You can awake to the trill of the Roaring Fork River rolling directly through the property. Splendid forest and mountain views greet you in every direction on the 10.5-acre property.
A relaxing deck looks over the water and out to the mountains.
However, if you are more of the indoor type, you’re in luck. The whole property boasts nine full baths and four half baths. There are also nine bedrooms with large windows and elegant wood siding.
There’s even a finished basement for those who want to get away for a few hours. Home cinema? Man cave? Craft jungle? The options are limitless.
The six-car garage (which is bigger than the finished basement, by the way) also gives you plenty of space to park all of your dream vehicles.
The interior of the house has Belgian black stone flooring, Douglas fir siding and rift-oak paneling. These little details retain that mountain lodge feeling.
The Epicureans of the world can rejoice in the walk-in wine room, chef’s kitchen and butler’s pantry.
Readers and loungers can luxuriate in the living room perched beside ceiling-high windows.
While fashionistas get bedroom-sized walk-in closets with floor to ceiling storage.
At just under $3,000 per square foot, it’ll take just a few years to pay off that mortgage. However, you won’t ever have to leave home again with real estate like that.
