Bill & Deb, former corporate exec's, we spend our leisure time hiking, RV'ing, boating on Lake Powell, playing with our Golden Retriever, and pursuing a variety of business interests.
Many people find Aspen for the skiing, but they stay for the summers, activities, events amd people! We did too. We chose Red Mountain Ranch high on Red Mountain because it has it all: panoramic views, privacy, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and ski touring at our doorstep, and yet we're just a few minutes to town for dining, cultural activities, entertainment, or the ski slopes.
Even for Red Mountain Ranch, our home and property are unique. Near the top of Red Mountain Ranch, the unusually long 360 feet of view frontage allows the house design to maximize the number of rooms and window space facing wrap around views. Rooms are bright and open, many with windows on 3 sides. Unlike many Red Mountain homes perched over a steep slope, our property stretches along a long natural bench, giving us garden and terrace space in front of our home. Coupled with the long frontage, it allows a fenced-in yard at one end of the house and a pretty grove of flowers, tall grass,and trees at the other.
The huge Great Room,4 separate outdoor seating areas, plus separate media,den,and breakfast areas, allow a large family or group to enjoy their different activities when they want it, yet come together to socialize with plenty of room for all. The large, comfortably furnished bedrooms facilitate separate quiet time when desired.
In the winter, hit the slopes a few minutes away in town. Summer or winter, explore the trails and dirt roads radiating into the mountains from the Hunter Creek Valley just behind Red Mountain Ranch. Enjoy the lovely valley itself along the river,perhaps pausing to step into the last intact structure of an old mining camp, or go up the many routes along both sides of the valley. Then a 5 minute drive to town for for a difficult choice between a myriad of restaurants, shopping, cultural, or entertainment. Or pass a relaxing afternoon on the terrace savoring the incredible views. Once home, a steam shower looking at the Maroon Bells. In the evening, enjoy your family or have friends over for drinks or dinner and enjoy the spectacular sunset over the mountains. Or just relax in the media room with a movie on the 73” HDTV. Or even better, do it all - there's plenty of room and space for everyone to do their own thing. With us you have it all.
