Stunning Estate in Aspen’s exclusive Red Mountain enclave, known as Billionaire’s Mountain, offered at US$18,950,000
Home in a contemporary architectural style and renovated in 2019 features living spaces on the second level to maximize glorious views of Aspen’s most famous massifs
New York, New York (June 4, 2021) — In a nod to Manhattan’s Billionaire’s Row, Aspen’s premier neighborhood on Red Mountain is often referred to as Billionaire’s Mountain. Its rarefied setting on the highest knoll in Red Mountain Ranch offers expansive views from Independence Pass to Mount Sopris and attracts the world’s power elite.
Located on Hunter Creek Road, this stone and stucco residence features living spaces on the second level to fully maximize its high vantage and the panoramic views of Independence Pass, Aspen Mountain, Highlands, Buttermilk, Maroon Bells, Snowmass and Mount Sopris from most rooms. The five-bedroom home, with four full baths and one half bath, spans 4,920 square feet. Originally built in 1996 with an interior redesign by Candace Hart in 2019, the estate is represented by Stephanie Lewis of Christie’s International Real Estate Aspen. Christie’s International Real Estate is providing global marketing.
Rick Moeser, executive director of Christie’s International Real Estate, said: “The structure celebrates its distinctive exteriors with thoroughly updated interiors. The result is a modern, luxury home within classic architecture.”
The residence, sited on three quarters of an acre, is entered on the lower level opening to a foyer, drenched in natural light through an oversized skylight, and showcasing a stunning circular stairway with a beautiful custom raw-metal handrail. The main living area features vaulted ceilings with recessed custom lighting and walls of windows framing Ajax Mountain, a dramatic reveal at the top of the stairs. The double-sided gas fireplace is shared with the dining room, which comfortably seats 10. The airy kitchen features Miele appliances and Caesarstone countertops. Double glass doors open to a deck and alfresco dining with still more unobstructed panoramic mountain scenery. This home naturally blends indoor and outdoor living, with decks complementing the upper bedrooms and walk-out patios for the lower bedrooms.
This lofted suite is tucked discretely at the far end of the house and entered through a gallery hallway. The pampering bath, like the main room, features breathtaking Ajax Mountain views. There is also a freestanding soaking tub, oversized steam shower, two walk-in closets and outside, a private patio with a hot tub. The other four bedrooms, three of which are en suite with walk-out access to the landscaped grounds, are on the lower level. A heated three-car garage completes the residence. Outside there is a serene waterfall, sundeck and hot tub.
On Red Mountain, the outdoors beckon. Homes are surrounded by tranquil meadows and trails offering exceptional hikes and some of the best mountain biking in the country quite literally out the backdoor. There is also more hiking in the Hunter Creek wilderness area, biking along the Roaring Fork River or fly-fishing up Independence Pass. Come winter, the skiing options are endless with four world-renowned ski areas: Ajax Mountain, Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass. The estate is a five-minute drive to Aspen's downtown with all its world-class dining, shopping, fine art galleries and wellness spas.
The Aspen School District is ranked first in Colorado and is one of the best public school districts in the United States.
