what: In an area where the price tag typically starts at $6M, sits a meticulous, just-right-sized home that sees nothing but mountains and sky and hears only the sound of Castle Creek rushing below. Bordered by National Forest Service land, this private, back-country retreat feels a million miles away, yet it’s a mere 9 miles away from town and Aspen’s schools. Enjoy hiking, mountain biking, jeeping, and cross-country skiing from your front door. Or, snowmobile to the Ajax Sundeck and ski down to the gondola. For quiet reflection and rejuvenation, this home offers stunning views up and down the Castle Creek valley -- most of these vistas encompass public land and will never change. When it’s time to disconnect from the rat race and reconnect with nature, this one-of-a-kind mountain paradise in Little Annie Basin is the perfect medicine.
where: Located on the back side of Aspen Mountain on Little Annie Road—quiet and secluded, yet a civilized 15 minutes to the hubbub of town.
why: A dreamy home surrounded by nature and dozens of opportunities for recreational fun. Relax. Renew. Recreate.
