Most Brits associate Aspen with skiing and a luxury lifestyle, maybe with glamorous celebrities gracing the pages of glossy magazines whilst clad in the latest designer skiwear. In fact Aspen is probably the first US ski resort most Europeans would think of. It’s exciting to read that Aspen is America's most expensive ski town and property prices get pricier the more skyward you get.
Red Mountain, the location of “The Peak House”, is also known as "Billionaire Mountain." It's home to high-end real estate and scenic views of downtown Aspen and the surrounding mountains. It's a haven for some of the richest names in America. William Wrigley Jr. of the famous “chewing gum” family, the casino magnate Neil Bluhm and the parents of Jeff Bezos all have houses there.
Offered for the first time in 20 years through Slifer Smith & Frampton is The Peak House. An astonishing property perched at the highest point on Red Mountain. This spectacular estate with awe-inspiring views is complemented by sophisticated David Easton designed interiors. While the residence offers over 18,000 square feet of indoor living area, it is greatly expanded with over 3,800 additional square feet of outdoor space, allowing for intimate gatherings or grand-scale events. Soak up the entirety of the Aspen valley and its surrounding world-class ski resorts while knowing you are secure at this private location and protected by a gated entry.
The home, with its magnificent proportions, incorporates features that were only permitted by “old-Aspen” building codes and cannot be replicated today. Buyers won’t find new construction that offers 2 pools, 4 fireplaces, this amount of liveable square footage, and a massive 12-car garage. These are what make The Peak House the place to call home.
Every detail was meticulously considered in this splendid property which combines 19th century architectural style with 21st century advances. Builder Joe Zanin—a true master at his craft—was renowned for constructing homes with the utmost integrity and that stand the test of time. Features such as the substantial corbels and rich pine paneling throughout the home reflect its undeniable quality.
Whether it is an impromptu gathering or a formal event, The Peak House can handle everything. This residence is known for its impressive floor plan, emphasizing spaciousness inside and outside, keeping guests delighted no matter what the occasion. Gathering spaces include the restorative conservatory that surrounds the indoor pool and can host a seated dinner for 60. Or entertain a much larger party on the outdoor patios while astonishing guests with magical views overlooking Aspen. This outdoor paradise provides approximately 3,800 combined square feet of heated patios and terraces, with the main terrace alone measuring approximately 2,700 square feet.
Five luxurious en suite bedrooms are situated throughout this three-level estate so you and your guests can find the quiet moments you desire. And, when you want to be at the centre of it all, it’s a quick drive down Red Mountain to the vital downtown core, delectable restaurants and extravagant shopping. Retreat back home for an unforgettable nightcap at dusk on any one of the outdoor terraces.
