Listing of the Day
Location: Aspen, Colorado
Price: $5.35 million
This six-bedroom house with year-round views is in Aspen’s exclusive and gated Starwood community.
“It’s a very affluent, very high-end area,” said listing agent Erik Berg. “People go there for the privacy, people go there for the security and the big dramatic views.”
“It probably has the most dramatic views in all of Colorado,” he said.
Views from the house include Aspen’s four best-known mountains—Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass, he said.
As an added incentive, the seller of this house is also accepting Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency, Mr. Berg said.
“Given the recent rise of Bitcoin and the amount of press that different luxury goods purchased through Bitcoin have gotten, the owner wanted to take advantage of that,” he said. “He wants to have the maximum exposure.”
Further, the house is being offered fully turnkey, with all of the furnishings included. That includes new furniture, bedding and flat-screen TVs in every room.
The light-filled house was built in 1980 and updated within the last year, Mr. Berg said.
Features include a large deck, wide-plank wood floors, five en-suite bedrooms and an updated living room space with an adjacent wet bar. The master bath has skylights and a sunken tub.
The 6,720-square-foot house has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and one partial bathroom. It sits on a 3.8-acre lot.
Amenities include two fireplaces (in the living room and master bedroom), a gym, spa, steam room and hot tub.
Horseback riding, tennis courts and cross-country skiing are available in Starwood, Mr. Berg said.
Starwood has long been home to celebrities and financiers. According to Mr. Berg, some of the billionaires that live in Starwood include Daniel Ziff, Dirk Ziff, Robert Ziff, Ed Lambert and John Paulson, who purchased his Starwood home from Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia.
The late John Denver also lived in Starwood and recorded a song about it titled “Starwood in Aspen.”
The gated Starwood community is “10 minutes outside of Aspen,” Mr. Berg said.
“There are about 51 homes in Starwood,” he said, with prices ranging from $5 million to $100 million.
