A $19 Million Ranch in a Stunning Colorado Setting
The residences enjoy all the amenities of the exclusive Grand River Ranch Club
Built in 2007 by Starz founder and cable pioneer John Sie and his wife Anna, Aspen Grove Ranch has 10 bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms and five half-bathrooms, plus a Western-style bar, enormous fireplace, movie theatre, two automatic bowling lanes, and a children’s performance stage and dressing room.
Designed to be a magnet for multi-generational gatherings, Aspen Grove Ranch combines a stunning setting and a multitude of activities within the property, as well as with the accompanying Grand River Ranch amenities, like staffed equestrian center with ranch horses available for trail rides, sporting clays course and rifle range, staffed GRR lodge with fine dining and four suites for additional guest accommodations, boating and fishing for native cutthroat trout at 24-acre Jones Reservoir, and excellent tailwater fly fishing for trout on 1.5 miles of enhanced fishing stream, accompanied by two additional cabins.
Aspen Grove’s centerpiece 24,400± square foot Main Residence was designed to conform to the land’s topography, as well as to capture the entire panorama and breathtaking views of the surrounding Gore and Williams Fork Mountain Ranges and of the expansive valley below.
Renowned architect Jon Gunson skillfully brought the owner’s vision to reality.
The Ranch’s residential plan serves three primary functions: a private wing for the owners, a spacious and dramatic gathering, dining and activity area, and a connected Guest Residence. This led to the overall concept of three structures, placing the Main Residence in the center with the owner’s suite and Guest Residence on each side.
The Guest Residence is easily assessed by a connected enclosed bridge or ground-level corridor, and each of these three structures are angled toward the three primary views. All three residences boast the highest quality finishes and furnishings, making it a home of refinement, elegance, and comfort. In addition, dead-standing trees were used for certain design and structural elements, lowering the environmental impact of construction.
The landscape plan is as stunning as the home’s interior, with a covered bridge, cascading waterfalls, ponds, and stone decks. From these outdoor living areas, the splendor of the Rocky Mountains can be enjoyed–dramatic sunrises and sunsets, wildlife, rainbows, and star gazing. The acreage also lends itself delightfully to hiking, horseback riding, hunting, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling, creating an unparalleled retreat.
Aspen Grove Ranch is located in the heart of Colorado ski country, and is 60 to 90 minutes from seven major ski resorts: Steamboat, Winter Park, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Copper Mountain. Kremmling, a ranching and recreation-oriented mountain town situated at the confluence of the Colorado and Blue Rivers, is less than ten minutes away. Silverthorne is less than an hour, and Denver is less than two. Although the ranch is close to town, airport, and resorts, its location, and setting make it very secluded and secure.
The exclusive Grand River Ranch amenities are the perfect complement to the 350± private deeded acres of Aspen Grove Ranch–available for use at any time, while keeping it simple and easy, without the need for any caretaking duties. The GRR lodge is a popular option for enjoying chef-prepared dining, and its guest rooms and associated cabins can provide accommodations for additional guests.
