Trophy Properties: Aspen, Malibu, St. Barths

Sumptuous and sleek, these are some of the most sought-after properties on the real estate market today.



 The land is protected by a conservation easement that promises it will forever be as pristine as it is today.

Nestled in a wooded valley near Aspen, these two ranch properties provide a rare opportunity to own a large piece of Colorado’s amazing lands. The two ranches can be purchased separately, or an ambitious buyer can combine the parcels for a total of 845 acres of wilderness with a total of six houses, including a historic homestead.

Against a dramatic background of mountains, the first property, Flying Dog Ranch, stretches for an impressive 245 acres. The property has one mile of private waterways on Collins Creek and Woody Creek, and many ponds. The land offers extensive trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, or cross-country skiing. Thanks to the adjacent White River National Forest, owners will have private access to some of the best deer and elk hunting in Colorado. The property also boasts irrigated pastures and stables, as well as a grand main house that offers the ideal setting to escape into the pressures of urban life.

The adjacent Bear Dance Ranch is a 600-acre parcel of utterly untouched land that is unheard of so close to the city of Aspen. Crowned by a building envelope with approval in-hand for a 10,750-square-foot house, the property is an easy 10-mile drive from the Hotel Jerome. Though its size and location make it unique, what truly distinguishes it is its environmental legacy. The land is protected by a conservation easement that promises it will forever be as pristine as it is today.

These two properties are available separately or as one large purchase. Regardless of which route is chosen, owners will have unprecedented access to Colorado’s untouched wilderness, mere minutes from the amenities of Aspen.
