Breathtaking mountain destination for year-round adventures.

Aspen, Colorado Real Estate

Nestled amongst the Rocky Mountains, Aspen is located 11 miles west of the Continental Divide and is next to both Woody Creek and Snowmass Village in the Aspen-Snowmass area. While this Colorado winter favorite is known for its breathtaking ski slopes and stunning mountain views, there is so much more to Aspen than its snow-capped peaks and winter wonderland. Named after the area's native Aspen trees, the community was founded during a silver mining boom in the 1880s. Since then, Aspen has established itself as a resort town with access to the Roaring Fork River Valley and the highest peaks. Many homes for sale in Aspen, and especially the area's mansions, boast an alpine flair and are often sprawling single-family estates. With ample mountain real estate, Aspen homeowners can take advantage of panoramic scenic vistas and enjoy the privacy of nature without sacrificing convenience.
