I call Eagles Nest home, and for a month or the season you may also. Your personal Connoisseur will meet you at the airport and see to your every need throughout your stay. While available to also accompany you, if so desired, for three days of skiing on Aspen’s various mountain terrains. For guests a Jeep Grand Cherokee awaits you with ski rack for your personal use without cost.
This 6,000 sq.ft. unique estate situated on 2.5 acres surrounded by forest at an elevation of 9,000 feet. The estate is secluded for privacy yet just minutes to Aspen and Snowmass. Wildlife abounds throughout the preserve; it is not unusual to see deer, elk, mountain lion, bobcat or 'Buns' our resident rabbit. Look out front over the Aspen trees and watch our two resident Bald Eagles soar in the thermos above the valley.
Upon entering this incredible home, you will be impressed by the most spectacular, unobstructed 360 degree views of famous Independence Pass, Highlands Ski Area and the City of Aspen directly in front. This private, luxurious 'get away' offers the finest in quality contemporary design and decor. Great for entertaining guests or a best kept secret escape for yourself.
The gourmet kitchen includes a Decor five burner gas range, two ovens and a bread/plate warming drawer. In addition to the Sub Zero refrigerator, two pull out crisper drawers located in the expansive granite topped island keep vegetables fresh, crisp and convenient. Not enough?
There is an extra refrigerator and freezer in one of two laundry rooms. The custom designed etched glass dining table seats up to ten plus two contemporary dining tables for seating eight more guests. Off the kitchen is an outdoor 'Zen Den' with lovely built-in lounge sofas and a gas fire pit in addition to a large BBQ grill.
The soft sound of water falling over a 10' high granite water feature above the wood burning fireplace in the living room will sooth your tensions away or enjoy a glass of wine on the living room balcony while drinking in the majestic views of the valley below. A baby grand piano tuned to perfection as well as surround sound music throughout the house.
The master bedroom and ensuite bath captures the South West garden and mountain views. Relax in the easy chairs or sofa while reading your favorite novel in front of an inviting gas fireplace. The master bathroom has separate vanities, Jacuzzi tub and oversized shower with an open expanse of glass creating a feeling of bathing in your own private outdoor oasis.
The double office is equipped with computer, printer, fax and WIFI throughout the house. The library has a full bath, beautiful deck, gas fireplace and may be converted to an additional bedroom for that unexpected guest.

About Mike Mullen 'Mulley'
I made and lost three fortunes in my life. But the fourth was a charm and managed to hold on to most of it. Owned a business in Dallas for a number of years. One day in 2006, after a year of bordum - I threw my keys to the Company President and left for St. John, USVI to construct villas. I completed my third in 2013. Also wrote two books, 'Keep Left' a comedy about the people and incidents that occurred with the first island build. It's sold out. The second novel 'Flat Busted' is a adventure/action book set in the Caribbean. I live each and every day as it were my last and split my time between this great estate in Aspen and time on St. John.
Mike Mullen 'Mulley' purchased this estate in 2003
Why Mike Mullen 'Mulley' chose Aspen
One winter Saturday morning in 1993, I received a call from an Aspen Broker that I had been long acquainted with who stated 'You need to immediately come to Aspen, I got the buy of a lifetime for you!' Upon walking in to the place, I was completely blown away with the view of snow covered Independence Pass! And you will also be. Located on 2.5 acres at the top of a mountain, I ripped down the original 'drug house' in 2002 and built Eagles Nest giving every thought to design detail, elegance and comfort. Wildlife abound with nearly fifty surrounding acres of trees and forest.
What makes this estate unique
Can't begin to describe the feeling you have at Eagle's Nest. Absolute quiet, expansive views from every window and deck. Top of the line furniture. You have to personally experience it - than time and time again return to this sanctuary!
