Experienced Aspenite; But This is Unbelievable
Submitted: February 25, 2013

We have been visiting Aspen for several decades, skiing in the winter, riding bikes, playing golf and hiking in the summer, always enjoying the wonderful Aspen amenities including the restaurants, lectures, shopping, music, etc. We usually stay in the Core. But, this home on Red Mountain was even better than the core.
While the mountains catch the sun earlier in town, the sun continues to shine on this magnificent south facing house for an additional two hours longer than at the St. Moritz for instance. The views stretch from Independence Pass to Glenwood Springs, and you see everything in between.
The pictures in this listing accurately portray the beauty and brightness of this sun filled home, but they don't do justice to the magnificent vista of just standing out on the huge, expansive deck that wraps the home.
We were also struck by how easy it is to get into town. It's less than five minutes; and yet when you're back home, you're in another totally private world. Part of what makes this home so unique is that there are no homes in front of it between you and the mountains, so that you feel like you can reach out and touch each of them.
And there is nothing that you could want that is not already in this perfectly appointed home. You would be hard pressed to find a more luxurious, comfortable place to stay in the Roaring Fork Valley. Thanks for letting us partake of your wonderful home.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your incredibly thoughtful review! Now you know why I bought this house.... there is nothing with a better view on Red Mountain. Yet, it is totally accessible to all the great things that Aspen offers. The days are longer here to enjoy the house too, as the sunsets are nearly two hours later than in the core, where Shadow Mountain blocks the setting sun. Glad you loved the luxurious appointments of the house as well.... hurry back!
