Featured Aspen Sold Property Last Week

MLS #117200 - Single family home, Meadowood Sub-division, 181 Larkspur Lane, Aspen, CO: Sold Price: $6,975,000/$696 sq ft; Ask Price: $7,995,000/$798 sq ft. (Original Price: $12,750,000 and 944 days on the market since 11/16/07). This is a new 2007 built, 10,021 sq ft home with 5 bedrooms/5 baths/3 half baths and a 3-car garage and separate artists studio. Depending on buyer opinion, my experience indicated this property probably required at least $1M in redesign and upgrade work because of design peculiarities and limitations. This additional expense should be factored into the total sold price adding a minimum of $100 sq ft to the price. The broker's comments are, "Situated on .93 acres of land amidst 100 yr old conifers & mature gambel oak trees, Meadowood Manor offers 10,021 square feet of opulent indoor living space as well as 3711 square feet of outdoor entertaining space. Spectacular views from Hunter Creek to Willow Creek can be enjoyed from the floor-to-ceiling windows as well as from the expansive decks, patios, & terraces. Features include cathedral ceilings, custom cabinetry & millwork, integrated color plaster walls, master suite w/2 private balconies & sun-drenched office, gourmet kitchen with professional-grade appliances & separate butlers pantry, 5 fireplaces, wine cellar, intimate library, authentic stonework accented with Italian stucco, sustainably harvested exotic wood floors, & remote studio space w/a variety of potential uses." 2010 Taxes: $35,869 Yr; HOA Dues: $3,112 Yr. Under Contract Date: 03/18/2011; Sold Date: 5/03/2011.(Photos and description courtesy of Morris & Fyrwald, Sotheby's Intl Realty.)
