Slifer Smith & Frampton, the firm which has served Colorado’s mountain resort communities for nearly 60 years, is thrilled to announce the first-ever gated luxury community in Twin Lakes, a quiet hamlet with a rich history located 35 minutes outside of Aspen over Independence Pass. The 75 pristine acres is in the heart of natural beauty and outdoor adventure, overlooking the largest glacier-formed lakes in Colorado and conveniently located near rivers, mountains and forests. AngelView truly embodies authentic Colorado living at its finest.
Featuring 18 homesites ranging between three and four acres at the base of Mt. Elbert, the highest mountain in Colorado (14,439’), the development features stunning landscape with seven waterfalls, a lake, two ponds and a fen — a rare, self-sufficient ecosystem that is to home a wildlife preserve with extraordinary plants, flowers, and ample wildlife with 360-degree views of the mountains and Twin Lakes. “Each lot has a 20% area of influence where the buyer can build—big enough for a very large home, but it ensures that 56 of the 75 acres will remain undeveloped to protect privacy and open space,” says Alan Elias, AngelView CEO & Founder. “Elk and other wildlife come down off the mountain, and what really makes it special is the amount of water we have running through the property.” There are 1.8 miles of internal walking trails with a series of ponds that are stocked with trout and 8.7 acres of designated open space. “All the homesites are very secluded and private, surrounded by old Douglas fir trees that block the sites from view.”
Prices for the homesites start at $1,025,000, and reservations are now being accepted. “AngelView is an extremely unique opportunity for those looking for the quintessential Colorado mountain home,” says Sarah Woelfle, lead listing broker for AngelView and Branch Broker for SSF Aspen. “Surrounded by mountain tops, lake views and on-site ponds, waterfalls and walking trails, there is no better place for your family to escape it all and enjoy the great outdoors. Buyers can enjoy the luxury of nearby resort towns without the crowds and truly have it all.”
The name AngelView comes from the view of “Praying Angel,” a naturally occurring feature that displays a host of trees in the shape of an angel overlooking Twin Lakes that is in direct line of sight of the community. An old fishing cabin has been renovated into a 2,500 square foot clubhouse with a huge porch and patio that overlooks the lake on the property and waterfalls. Other amenities will include a private events center and an onsite Adventure Concierge, a husband-and-wife team who are available to help residents and their guests enjoy everything the area has to offer, including mountain biking, hiking, river rafting, fly fishing and skiing. “The main goal of AngelView is to get people outside enjoying nature and creating memories,” Elias says.
Elias is an accomplished visionary, land developer, film producer, strategic thought leader and innovator with extensive experience building customized marketing and enterprise technology solutions for many of the world’s leading companies including 15 Fortune 100 companies and over 1,400 non-profits. “We found the property by accident 12 years ago when my family was looking for a place to build a second home, and I made a promise to my beautiful wife of 34 years and my two kids that I would build a home here,” Elias says. “Over time, I realized this place was too special not to share it with others. I came up with a plan to develop that would allow other families to come in and experience it too.”
Elias assembled a large “dream team” of developers, architects, brokers, engineers, ecologists, land planners, and water rights attorneys to form a “well-oiled machine” to help him actualize his vision. His goal was to create a luxury haven in the mountains for families to enjoy memories for generations to come, full of outdoor adventure and old fashion fun. “This is a legacy for my family. It’s about celebrating close friends, nature, and getting back to the beauty we’ve lost track of in life. You can’t miss it here.”
