Since the start of the coronavirus crisis, large land plots and spacious living interiors have become even more important criteria for those seeking a new home. Buyers tend to gravitate towards properties in peaceful areas with plenty of greenery that offers sufficient space for all members of a household, as well as benefitting from good connections to urban centres. In an exclusive location in the Rocky Mountains, Engel & Völkers is currently brokering an exceptional equestrian estate spanning 37.5 hectares and just a 30-minute drive from Aspen. “For buyers who are passionate about horses, this ranch truly is a dream property. It combines luxury, privacy and natural beauty in a charming way that makes it utterly unique,” says Summer Berg, Managing Director of Engel & Völkers Aspen. The ranch is on the market with an asking price of 20 million US dollars (approx. 17,07 million euros). It is located in the small town of Carbondale, considered Aspen’s “little sister” and one of the up-and-coming locations in the US state of Colorado.
The property consists of a main house spanning some 38,750 square feet (approx. 3,400 square metres) with three bedrooms, and three-and-a-half bathrooms, in addition to a barn with stables for 41 horses and three other outbuildings. Further amenities include a heated indoor arena, an outdoor arena, six tack rooms, four stables for grooming, and a separate stable for veterinary examinations. “The owners have spared no expense or effort in turning this estate into a place of absolute well-being for both people and animals,” says Melissa Temple, Real Estate Agent at Engel & Völkers Aspen, adding: “As Aspen is within such close and convenient reach, the future custodians of the ranch also get to enjoy all the benefits of the cosmopolitan city – from skiing and shopping to fine dining.”
