An Equestrian’s Dream Ranch in Basalt, Colorado



Photography by Kimberly Gavin

Where the pavement ends, tranquility begins in this mountain contemporary home in Basalt, Colorado. Just minutes from Aspen, the 35-acre ranch is a wonderland for the homeowners and their horses, alike.

What once was an old homestead is now a handful of properties with a shared equestrian center—a 2,700-square-foot heated barn accommodates up to four horses for easy access to mile of private equestrian trails and thousands of miles of public land.

This five-bed, eight-bath, 7,200-square-foot ranch is a beautiful balance of harmony between the interior spaces and outdoor living, marrying inspirations from Mother Nature with contemporary architecture.

Walls of glass invite captivating mountain views into the home, and a gorgeous Colorado buff stone adds texture and interest both inside and out. Grand south-facing terraces and lawns extend the living areas into the surrounding landscape, providing the perfect spot for entertaining and drinking in views of Mount Sopris beyond.
