The House on Little Nell

It has become in vogue in today’s Aspen real estate market to refer to a listing as a legacy property, but for the House on Little Nell, “heirloom” is perhaps more apropos. Envision Aspen of the 1950’s and what comprised the fledgling ski and mountain resort experience. Flash forward to today, and what has remained a constant throughout the changing character of the decades is the irreplaceable location and appeal of the House on Little Nell. Nestled against one of the world’s most recognized ski trails and literally in the shadow of the Silver Queen gondola, the expression “if these walls could talk” is delivered with the wink of an eye as memories of the original home have been transformed into Aspen Mountain’s transcendent ski-in/ski-out property.  Today, the 7,150 square foot mountain contemporary home sits amongst mature aspen and pine trees overlooking downtown Aspen. A short walk down the hill is every amenity that has established Aspen as a year-round, world-famous destination. Situated on a 10,000+ square foot lot, the home features inviting and convenient outdoor spaces begging to entertain. The expansive main level deck directly off the slope and hidden from skiers and hikers offers outdoor dining and lounging in perfect privacy. A rejuvenating soak in the hot tub on the spacious lower-level deck serves up relaxation and views to the stars. Indoors, the four livable levels include a large great room with bird’s eye views across Aspen, an adjacent open kitchen and sitting area, and a spacious east-facing master bedroom with views toward Indy Pass, his & her bathrooms, and walk-in closets. Three generous above grade bedroom suites, huge media and playroom with sunken floor, ski-in equipment room, large elevator, and strategically placed powder rooms all allow for plenty of room to claim your space in a once in two generations opportunity to own a slope side home with one of the richest histories of any property in Aspen.
