A development application calls for two side-by-side lots at the end of Stillwater Road, where the apartments once stood, calls for a 5,749-square-foot house on the lot where the main Shadowood structure was recently demolished. The 14-unit, four-story apartment building had been visible from Highway 82 across from the Mountain Valley subdivision.On the second lot, a 2,200-square-foot house that was part of Shadowood, would remain and be remodeled as a single-family residence, according to the application. A new, 1,976-square-foot accessory structure is also proposed. The former Shadowood lots remain in part-time Aspen residents Stewart and Lynda Resnick Resnicks’ hands. The development application identifies Bundy Properties LLC — the Resnicks’ property management business, based in Los Angeles — as the owner.
ASPEN REAL ESTATE — The former Shadowood Apartments, dating back to late 1960’s and called home by a succession of Aspen residents before they were boarded up nearly a decade ago, have been razed to make way for a proposed single-family home. Shadowood, which was perched above the Roaring Fork River just east of town, is fondly remembered by many who took a turn residing in the funky digs — a throwback to the days when Aspen was dotted with enclaves of relatively inexpensive, laid-back living.At one point, local government officials eyed the property’s potential for formal, deed-restricted employee housing, as the privately owned rental property had always housed local workers anyway. Instead, in 2003, building officials declared it uninhabitable. It had been vacant ever since.
