Best ‘Old West’ Aspen Compound: 3 Structures, Views, Pool, 12.6 acres

This is a charming "Old West" compound at the end of the road on 12.6 acres with panoramic views of Aspen’s four major ski mountains and Mt Sopris. Owners of the property have been the former leader of the Aspen Institute and a prior owner of the Aspen Ski Company which some may feel provides the property with a certain Aspen authenticity and select provenance. Featuring 5,748 square feet of living space within one Main House and two separate Cabins (one of which is historic) – 5 bedrooms/5.5 baths total – the property also claims beautiful expansive open spaces, floor to ceiling windows with natural light, multiple gardens, an outdoor salt water mineral pool, charming foot paths, and a private gazebo retreat. This compound with three livable structures is unlikely to be reproduced within today’s land use code and represents a stunning and unique piece of Aspen’s heritage. New to market summer 2010.
