Posh Aspen Estate Includes a Resident Elk Herd
Location: Aspen, Colorado
What We Love About It: Plenty of wildlife to go with your wild life – the palatial home is situated in an elk migration area, so furry friends graze year-round on the five-acre property, bordering 300 acres of open pasture.
Listing Price: $25,750,000 (Furnished)
This ain’t your daddy’s Elks Lodge. Featuring 18,000 square feet of opulence, this home includes six spacious bedroom suites (each equipped with a bathroom, sitting area, walk-in closet and outdoor patio), three full kitchens, a temperature-controlled limestone wine room which can seat up to 30 guests, a wood-paneled library/billiards room with 71-inch TV and fireplace, a fully-appointed media room with three TVs and an exercise room complete with a steam room. The caretaker’s quarters (including a kitchen, living, bedroom and bathroom) have a separate entrance.
Outdoors, over 5,000 square feet of patio space features numerous comfortable seating areas and a wood-burning fireplace and fire pit, but you might just prefer to float in the 60-foot infinity pool as you gaze up at the nearby mountains.
Worrywarts will be relieved to know that the estate is completely self-contained, with its own well providing water and a 5-kilowatt solar electric system generating power.
