If, after reading our destination guide to Aspen, you are thinking of making the swanky resort town a more permanent address, look to the property on offer at Aspen Valley Ranch. The new 813-acre gated community debuted in May this year and consists of family ranch-style homes, created by two local design superstars Michael Fuller and Poss Architecture. Mount Daly House is the largest home available at 5,373 sq ft. It has four rustic-chic bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a barn and a three-car garage.
The stars of the show, however, are most certainly the incredible views from the expansive windows and open-plan spaces. The house is in an unmatched, dreamy location: It lies on the valley floor at the merging of two mountains, has spectacular views of the Elk Mountain Range, and is accessed by crossing a bridge over the Red Canyon Creek. While you’ll feel fully submerged in the wilderness, the ranch is only 12 miles from the town center and eight miles from Aspen Airport.
