Hanging Valley Ranch, Aspen, Colorado


Offered at $29,500,000

In a hidden meadow, on majestic Mt. Sopris, exists an ”Island in the Sky”; an offering that only becomes available once in a generation. Words and metaphor alone can’t do this spectacular setting justice. It simply must be seen to be believed. Welcome to Hanging Valley Ranch. 55 acres (35 irrigated) are entirely surrounded by National Forest. Situated at the end of a private, gated road just 15 minutes from downtown Carbondale, this rare inholding comprises a modern-rustic main house, a generous 3-bedroom guest house and a gorgeous 4-stall horse barn. There’s also an outdoor riding arena, a hay barn and miles of three-rail fence. The water here isn’t just senior, it springs forth from the mountain in three places that feed Nettle Creek. The tributary then meanders the length of the property feeding waterfalls and ponds that compliment numerous flagstone patios, paths and bridges, all a precious piece of the meticulous landscape design. Wildlife runs wild and free, dark skies provide a tapestry for stars, horse and hiking trails run seemingly forever. When the snow falls, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are a must. Those with courage and determination can opt to ascend the 12,965′ mountain towering above and ride the perfect line all the way to the backdoor. Those lucky to see and explore this magical parcel describe it as ”heaven on earth” as there no shortage of miracles to behold here. This is the one-in-a-lifetime opportunity you’ve dreamed about. Don’t let this one get away.
