In a quaint Colorado community where little storefronts line picturesque street ways, and pathways meet by small stone bridges over peaceful streams lies a one-of-a-kind estate. While in the summers rolling hills of splendorous green flow wildly off into the mountain horizon, the winter months are famous for world class skiing. Resting upon an elegant and prized 46 acres, this elegant 14,688 square foot home is situated just minutes from the centrality of world renowned Aspen. Few places in the world can boast at having such magnificently untouched view from within their house, let alone an expansive estate.
The architecture of this exuberant estate perfectly complements the surrounding landscaping, no matter the time of the year. With warmly hued stonework lining the rustic exterior, a charming sense of comfort and coziness exudes. Cresting the foremost face of the estate lies elongated windows which span from the base level through to the vaulted ceilings above, allowing natural light to flow freely into the home. Additionally, patio-sun decks span along the back-side exterior creating a seamless conversion for indoor-outdoor living throughout the timid summer months.
As you approach the overflow driveway to the backside of the home where the main entrance can be found, the rising stone walls of the lodge ascend to the sky above like a castle. Intricately carved wooden doors beckon you further into the home. A large living area expands greeting you with vaulted ceilings, wooden beam accents, cast iron chandeliers, and a stone fireplace. Custom windows line the opposing wall featuring extensive views of the Rocky Mountains and below valley. Natural light streams through reflecting off the polished hardwood floors, leading you through to the balcony that looks down to the properties acreage.
Wood flooring continues through to the kitchen and dining areas, which are quite generously sized. Matching wooden cabinetry line the perimeter of the kitchen, while white tiles accent the back-splash. A large center island with white marble counters sits below cast iron chandeliers, acting as a place for casual dining or meal prepping area. For an added touch of elegance, glass windows accent the bordering cabinetry as well as the floor to ceiling wine fridge, while a butlers pantry adds extra convenience. A formal dining space sits just outside the elongated kitchen, where windows frame the picturesque landscape creating a luxurious dining experience for you and your guests.
Several bedrooms are included within the estate, each with their own mountain views and balcony access. Totaling 2400 square feet, the master suite of the main house is grand to say the least. The master suite features vaulted ceilings, with chandelier and wooden beam accents. A luxurious stone tiled steam shower can be located within the en-suite with white marble accents, while a large dressing room with custom wardrobes is also accessible. Two private balconies where mountainous sunsets can be enjoyed help to complete the master suite. An additional three bedrooms can be found within the estates guesthouse, ensuring ample room for extra guests or groundskeepers.
So many more rooms and amenities are found within this grand estate, all with similar testament to which the rooms already mentioned are comprised of. This Aspen jewel, are you ready to claim the prize?
