Tim’s notes: Since 2015, there has been increased sales activity along the Hwy 82 corridor east of town to the Mountain Valley subdivision. During the recession and shortly after, there were value opportunities (and risks) to pick up lower priced land or older residential properties along this corridor that were discounted due to the perceived negative ‘road impacts’. But as new or like-new product was built and then sold successfully along this main highway thoroughfare, the perceived negatives of roadside living have largely dissipated in favor of the positives – closeness to town, direct access to a bus/shuttle line and walk/hike proximity of the East Aspen Trail into or out of town. The road becomes background white noise (“city living”) and, over-time, inconsequential to the property owner. In a similar way, property sales on Main Street Aspen have picked up with the former objections of living on a busy street being replaced by the positives of convenience, walkability and closeness to public transportation. Broker comments are “Just finished interior renovation for a fresh and vibrant look. Almost everything is new with an upgraded kitchen, refined living spaces and desirable contemporary finishes throughout. Close to town in Mountain Valley on Aspen’s east side, the location makes for a great family home on a large corner lot with privacy and abundant lawn area. Leave the car in the generous three car garage and make your way into town on the bus or bike path just across the street. The lower level incorporates a guest suite with private entrance, living area, bedroom and full bath along with an efficiency kitchen (no stove) for that independent guest or caretaker. With five above grade bedrooms, the house is light and bright, and with a private rooftop deck and welcoming outdoor spaces rounding out the amenities, the near east side might be just the place you seek.” 2019 taxes: $5,238.
