This Downtown Aspen Penthouse is Pure Luxury
Photos by Michael Hefferon
Nestled into Downtown Aspen with views of Aspen Mountain and the ski town’s historic Hotel Jerome, this sophisticated retreat maximizes style and space in 2,000 square feet.
One of only a handful of Hotel Jerome Residences at the Mill, the three-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse operates similarly to Hotel Jerome’s suites; each single-owned unit enjoys all of the hotel’s amenities, including daily cleaning, turn-down, and room service. Talk about the best of both worlds!
When the owner of this gem is away, the home is included in Hotel Jerome’s rental pool, which means that not only does the unit need to embody the hotel’s classic style, but it also needs to quickly adapt to a varying number of occupants. With careful attention to detail, this home’s smart design maximizes square footage while almost effortlessly continuing the Hotel Jerome’s iconic style.
Take a tour of the home’s timeless luxury below.
The penthouse is accessed via the elevator with a special code. Upon arrival, you can drop off your skis in the mudroom and prepare for a warm and relaxing retreat from the snow.
A striking photograph of a horse and a wooden Phillips Collection table greets you upon entry. The wallpaper, with its small metal rivets, adds extra texture and interest.
For pops of color amid cool, textured grays and whites, mustard yellow and gold accents are thoughtfully sprinkled throughout the home. In the living room, custom-designed pillows—crafted from vintage Pendleton blankets—and a photograph of ski tips add one-of-a-kind character. Elements like the glass coffee table subtly add function while maintaining an airy, open space.
The clean-lined fireplace anchors the living room, with velvet chairs on either side, optimizing seating. Behind the fireplace, herringbone wallpaper adds warmth and depth.
The kitchen is a dream in classic white and marble, open and flowing into the dining area.
The dining room features an LED light fixture over a live-edge table and custom-designed chairs. A strategically placed mirror at the end of the table reflects access to the living room, making the room feel as big and open as possible.
The master bedroom mixes vintage and modern elements, as well as textures and patterns, like the plaid headboard, black leather nightstands, and striped pillows and throws. Striking light fixtures add intrigue to the space; an LED light in the wall sconces creates the optical illusion of a lit glass ball.
The master bath design epitomizes the beauty of simplicity—classic, tailored, and timeless.
In the first guest bedroom, a leather headboard adorns a king size bed, which can split into two twin beds. Faux elk antlers painted gold add a touch of rustic-chic whimsy.
Navy, gray, and cool metallics adorn the second guest bedroom. Mounted wall sconces add drama to the headboard while freeing up horizontal space on the nightstands.
An outdoor heater and plush seating on the deck provide the perfect lounging spot, where you can look out at Aspen Mountain and decide what you want to dine.
