Property With Acreage in The Aspen Real Estate Market

Properties with acreage in the Aspen are a bit rare due to the lay of the land.  Aspen is surrounded by National Forrest and Mountainous terrain on all sides except for the down-valley (East Side).  Many people come to Aspen to enjoy the skiing on one or all 4 mountains, the Music Festival in the Summer, the Physics Institute and the many other offerings found in Aspen.  Some come to ski and find that the area is even more enjoyable in the summer and amazingly beautiful and peaceful in the fall.

Acreage property can be found as close as a long walk or short drive away from downtown.  I just negotiated a 22 acre parcel with amazing views of Castle Creek and Mount Hayden, bordered by Aspen Mountain located just a 6 minute drive to downtown.  The buyers will be enjoying the best of Aspen with both easy access to town and peace and quiet once their new home is built.

Acreage parcels in the Aspen area range from little cabins in the woods that can be difficult or even impossible to access in winter to luxurious estates just minutes to town.  There are currently 28 real estate listings that have some type of residential dwelling (or mansion) with over 4 acres.  Prices of these properties range from $1,595,000 to $47,500,000.  $1,595,000 will buy a cabin on Little Annie Road (the back side of Aspen Mountain Ski Area) that is nestled in an Aspen Grove with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2602 square feet on just under 49 acres.  It may be possible to add additional square footage to this property by obtaining a TDR (Transferable Development Right).  $47,500,000 will buy a spectacular creek-front family compound with 67 acres of Alpine Forrest, waterfalls, jeep and hiking trails with stunning views from every window located up Castle Creek (off the Round-about) and past the hospital about 3 miles, just 7-8 minutes to town.

Acreage on the Aspen real estate market is also available for equine enthusiasts.  Equine properties can be found just outside of Aspen in the Mclain Flats area which is located between Aspen and Woody Creek.  A marvelous property offering a playground for adults and kids is listed for sale on McLain Flats Road.  This incredible property has 7 bedrooms, 8.5 baths, over 21 acres, a 13,000 square foot fitness facility including an NBA regulation size basketball court, tennis court, racket ball court, indoor track, 8 stall barn, steam room and a separate wing for the kiddos.  This property is listed for $28,000,000.
