$19.5 Million View Estate Sold by Brian Hazen with Mason Morse
Posted by Kim Briscoe — February 28, 2011
SkyRidge at Starwood captures the awe-inspiring essence of the Colorado Rockies with arguably the best unencumbered views of any estate in North America.
This visionary mountain contemporary home is newly rebuilt with incredible attention to detail, technological savvy, and extravagant finish quality. This is Aspen’s most monumental and peerless “View Estate”. The residence features a grand 9’ entry door, descending into a multi-level two-story foyer that showcases the 180-degree views of the entire valley. SkyRidge offers the finest craftsmanship throughout from large timber beams and Alder wood panels, to French limestone stairs and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. The home also offers custom chandeliers and fixtures, two-story stone fireplaces, an indoor swimming pool with wet bar and seating area, pub room with sunken copper topped bar and billiard table, private library with deck, state-of-the-art home theatre, wine cellar, and custom infinite edge spa.
The property was listed for $19,750,000 and sold for $19,537,000. “Even in the “high end” luxury market, I think this sale shows that well priced listings receive more and serious showing activity, require significantly less marketing time, and close at a higher sales price.” says Brian Hazen VP/Broker Associate with Mason Morse.
This residence marks the fourth residential sale in the Aspen market over $15 million in 2011. To date, those four homes have sold totaling $73,287,000 (SkyRidge at $19.537 million, Star Mesa at $16 million, Sesame Street at $20 million and Wildcat at $17,750,000). This represents a 100% increase over 2010 where only 2 homes were sold over $15 million—West Buttermilk for $31.5 million and Aspen Lakes Ranch at $24.5 million (in which Brian Hazen represented the buyer).
