Here is a property that invites superlatives, then redefines them: nearly 12-acres of land with creek frontage, iconic Aspen Mountain views, and development entitlements up to 19,750 sq. ft, all within a minute’s drive – or a pleasant stroll – to downtown Aspen. The Crown Jewel is quite possibly the best developable parcel so close to the heart of Aspen available in decades. Here, one fortunate buyer will create a home … and a legacy.
A historic parcel under continuous ownership for multiple generations, there is no other land available — nor will there likely be — with this combination of natural splendor and construction opportunity. The Crown Jewel is mostly flat and wooded, with just enough elevation to offer striking views of Aspen Mountain – skiers by day, snowcats lights by night. Bordered by Hunter Creek, you can dip your feet or wet a line all summer, or hit the trail and enjoy National Forest Wilderness in minutes. On the property itself, you’ll spy mule deer year-round and elk every winter. Birders will want to keep their binoculars handy, and anglers can wade the creek for brook trout or enjoy a sizable trout pond —. It never hurts to have options.
The Crown Jewel offers one fortunate buyer the opportunity to create an estate with few peers in Aspen or the entire mountain west. Entitlements are secured for up to 15,000 sq. ft. above grade, 4,000 below ground, and a 750 sq.ft garage. If you’re looking to build a trophy home, this one will shatter the display case. If you’re looking to create memories and host family, this is the place to do so: season after season and year after year.
This is a singular property and a singular opportunity at a single moment in Aspen history. If you can afford to consider a property of this caliber, you can’t afford to let the opportunity pass by.
