An 813-acre Colorado ranch property nestled about 12 miles from the center of Aspen has recently hit the market for a landmark price of $220 million. Listed by Carrie Wells and Chris Souki of Coldwell Banker Mason Morse, the legendary property — dubbed “Aspen Valley Ranch” — is considered to be one of the largest and closest private ranch compounds to Aspen core. The ranch comes complete with eight custom homes totaling 34,397 square feet, resort-style amenities, outdoor recreation, as well as full infrastructure with irrigation, water treatment facility and vast water rights. Aspen Valley Ranch represents “a refined interpretation of western ranch-style living,” says Wells. “You have the finest amenities and accommodations that you would expect from a world-class resort.”
Adds Chris Souki, Charif Souki’s son who also lives at Aspen Valley Ranch: “It was an amazing adventure for seven years, taking part in the creation of an exceptional property with my brothers, sister and father while at the same time living in the environment that we created and enjoying all the benefits of the property.”
Aspen Valley Ranch pays homage to its legacy as a family ranch with world-class recreation and amenities that all generations can enjoy. Over 13,900 square feet of common facilities include the Ranch House, a Gym/Pool House, Historic Barn with game room and equipment garage and an 8-stall horse barn. Designed by Michael Fuller Architects, these facilities express a ranch modern design narrative and are all equipped with state-of-the-art technology controlled by Savant system.
Aspen Valley Ranch also offers year-round outdoor recreation, including over 220 acres of flat usable pasture land for riding and a pond with a dock for swimming, fishing, and launching stand-up paddleboards. Winding throughout the property, there are miles of recreational trail where you can snowmobile and cross country ski in the winter or go dirt biking, mountain biking, four-wheeling, and horseback riding in the summer.
Built and designed with uncompromising local craftsmanship and detail, eight luxury homes totaling approximately 34,397 square feet have been thoughtfully placed on the Ranch to maximize both privacy and views. Both Poss Architecture + Planning and Michael Fuller Architects contributed designs for the homesteads, which offer sophisticated and contemporary expressions of the mountain architectural narrative.
Concludes Wells: “Few properties exist today that offer the same combination of privacy, scale and world-class western living so close to the heart of Aspen.”
