Inside the 'Ultimate Luxury Mountain Estate' On Two Private Acres in Aspen's West Buttermilk


Nestled amidst the majesty of the Elk Mountain Range on over two private acres in West Buttermilk lies a property that embodies the very essence of luxury mountain living. Listing agent Carrie Wells of Coldwell Banker Mason Morse calls the impressive 2002-built stone-and-wood masterpiece "the ultimate luxury mountain estate."  

Here, unmatched style meets unparalleled quality and an abundance of amenities, creating a haven that transcends mere vacation escape. As you approach the residence, a sense of grandeur washes over you.

The harmony of wood and stone blends seamlessly with the surrounding beauty of the alpine landscape. Stepping through the entrance, you're greeted by a light-filled foyer wrapped in a stone colonnade. A sense of expansiveness permeates the entire main living level, and continues into the great room.

Floor-to-ceiling glass flanks the main living areas, blurring the line between indoors and out, and flooding the interiors with breathtaking, panoramic vistas of the majestic peaks beyond. Off the main living area, a cozy family room beckons, inviting intimate gatherings around the fireplace. This space leads to an expansive outdoor lounge, complete with its own fireplace and grill, perfect for al fresco entertaining. 

Formal occasions are just as effortlessly accommodated in the elegant dining and living room. This versatile space can be partitioned off, ensuring perfect intimacy for smaller gatherings, while remaining grand enough to host larger soirees. The chef's kitchen has been outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances and ample counter space, giving the next owner flexibility in catering to every whim, be it an intimate dinner with loved ones or a grander affair. A lofted study and library provide "an inspirational place to work or relax as you look out upon the living rooms as well as the beautiful mountain scenery," describes Wells. 

Each of the six en-suite bedrooms have been designed with generous layouts and well-appointed baths – perfect for accommodating guests or family members. "Designed for single-level living," adds Wells, the primary suite offers a tranquil escape with oversized closets, and a luxurious bath reminiscent of world-class spas. 

Descending to the lower level, prepare to be further enthralled. Here, an expansive entertainment area awaits, perfect for movie nights or casual gatherings. A fully equipped fitness center allows you to maintain your wellness routine, while a state-of-the-art theater, complete with a Dolby CPA 50 certified sound system and Barco projector, guarantees a truly cinematic experience. A meticulously designed wine cave, appointed with dry-stacked stone walls and barrel-vaulted ceilings, houses two separate cellars for your prized red and white wines. A private tasting room completes this subterranean haven, inviting intimate soirees amongst the fruits of the vine.

Step outside, and the meticulous landscaping evokes the charm of the European countryside. Rolling hills, dotted with grazing elk, create a sense of serene seclusion, all while offering unparalleled mountain views. Less than four miles from the heart of Aspen, this rare property provides the perfect balance of tranquility and access to every amenity for which Aspen is revered. Immaculately maintained by a dedicated team of specialists, this masterpiece is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to own a slice of mountain paradise.
