About Kristine Brown

Hello! My name is Kristine Brown. I live in Manhattan Beach, CA but my favorite get away is Aspen, CO. I am a mother of 2 little girls and love to ski. I have a passion for decorating and combined it with a business called Big Daddy's Antiques. My Husband and I sell to Ralph Lauren, J Crew, Levi, and countless clothing stores. We were on 'Housewives of Beverly Hills' last season as the store that Lisa bought all of her furnishings from for her new bar, 'Sur'.

Kristine Brown purchased this condo in 1993

Why Kristine Brown chose Northwest Colorado

I can honestly say, that you cannot beat this location. For what you get with this rental: an almost unheard of large space, all the amenities of home and your private roof top deck that overlooks the mountain, it hard to find anything that you can compare with it. I chose this property because I feel lucky every time I walk through the door. This place makes you feel special and if it doesn't, you grew up a lot luckier than I was.

What makes this condo unique

There is great dining and entertainment just step outside the front door. I particularly enjoy Jimmy’s an American Restaurant & Bar, Cache Cache, Campo de Fiori for Italian, Pinons for fine dining, Krabloonik for game, and the Pine Creek Cookhouse is perfect for a sleigh ride or cross country skiing through the snow covered forest. The Penthouse is located in downtown Aspen within walking distance to 10-15 restaurants. The gondola to Aspen Mountain is 2 1/2 blocks away. Shuttle stop access to Snowmass and Aspen Highlands is around the corner by McDonald’s.

Great location but needs maintenance and deep cleaning

  • 2 of 5

Right in downtown Aspen. Needs more attention than regular housekeeping provides.

Owner's Response: If I ever would have heard of any problems at all, I would have sent someone over to have them fixed or taken care of right away, but sadly, I never heard that anything was wrong. I am here right now and walking all over looking at everything; not sure of what he could have been talking about- I wish that he would have been more specific.

Kristine's apartment was amazing--perfect location, enormous rooms, and great views from the hot tub on the roof. Kristine was very easy to work with. Now I just need to come back for ski season.
