Listing of the day
Location: Aspen, Colorado
Price: $14.9 Million
A mere 10 minutes from downtown Aspen and five minutes from Snowmass Base Village stands a unique property that encompasses far more than meets the eye. This home gives new meaning to the notion of getting back to nature—neighboring 2,000-acres of open space contiguous to hiking trails, mountain biking paths, snowshoeing access and horseback riding. And the name of this sprawling Rocky Mountain retreat? Pioneer Canyon Ranch.
Dreamed to life by its current homeowner, tech entrepreneur Doug Paley, the expansive 40-acre estate places modern design amenities alongside nature’s ever-changing canvas.
Views encompass Aspen Mountain, Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass, according to listing agent Steven Shane of Compass.
“This is an outdoorsman’s paradise,” says Mr. Shane. “World class mountain biking trails are being further enhanced within five minutes of your backdoor connecting all the surrounding mountains…. [there’s] skiing on all four of the Aspen/Snowmass mountains. Summertime nearby activities include: gold medal fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding, golf and road and mountain biking.”
Perhaps the most striking feature inside this ultra-exclusive estate is the oversized air gas fireplace. This impressive focal point draws multiple spaces together while not distracting from the artful views in the horizon.
The indoor-outdoor living design is perfect for entertaining and hosting. Boasting an open floor plan of generous rooms, soaring ceilings, and oriented toward dramatic views, there’s little left to want. And the property has played host to musical artists Justin Beiber, John Legend, and Mumford & Sons, just to name a few.
The 13,167-square-foot house has seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and four half bathrooms. There are also three fireplaces, a hot tub and multiple outdoor living and dining spaces. Overall the home lends itself as the ultimate family compound.
The house was designed by local Aspen architecture firm Gretchen Greenwood & Associates, known for their modern masterpieces that embrace their surroundings.
Though your main focus may be getting back to nature, there will certainly be no shortage of luxury conveniences at your fingertips, including: gas heat, a security system, forced air, hot tub, open views, radiant heating, patio, full basement, southern exposure, garage, indoor-outdoor fireplaces, guest house, steam shower, fully furnished and miles of hiking and/or ATV trails out your back door.
Home to only six other estates, Pioneer Springs may be Colorado’s best-kept secret. And, with Snowmass—arguably the greatest ski resort in North America—less than 10 minutes away and Aspen Mountain, Highlands and Buttermilk all within 15 minutes, this estate truly is an outdoor lover’s paradise.
