Snowmass Village house description

This house, at 35 Janss Lane, is 5 homes from the very top of Wood Road,which runs up the center of the mountain. We see everything from Daly Peak to Sam's Knob, Big Burn, the Cirque, High Alpine and Elk Camp. The ski access takes you to the bottom of the SECOND lift, Coney Glade, letting you avoid all the crowds at the bottom of the mountain. With a week ski pass and groceries, you would enjoy incredible privacy - or you could go to Aspen and schmooze with the glitteratti. Easy ski-in access is just indirect enough to preserve your privacy - there are three alternatives to ski or walk out.

Four bedrooms with en-suite baths, all with mountain views - two kings, one twin, one quad. Sleeps 10. Hot tub accommodates 8 or more. Wireless high speed internet; all the usual TV and audio equipment. Weber gas grill on the deck.

Ready and waiting for your perfect vacation!

Keywords: ski-in, short walk out or intermediate ski out, best view on the mountain

                          Ski in and ski out of our house, one of the highest on the mountain, to Green Cabin. In summer, walk 10 minutes up the hill to the start of the 36-hole frisbee golf, or start a world class hike or mountain bike ride right from the house. Gold medal trout streams are just minutes away.

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About: My husband and I, both physicians, bought this lot in 12 hours sight unseen when my brother, a local real estate agent, called to tell us that it had gone on the market. I grew up in the Aspen area, and knew how special this lane is. Even though we were not thinking retirement, both of our sons ended up going to college in the west, and this home that we built quickly became our favorite holiday haven. Skiing, snowboarding, fishing, hiking, pack trips through the mountains, summer concerts - We love it all.

                          Why Snowmass Village:
                          For years we considered buying, because our family didn't fit well into my brother's or my mother's home. Not until the perfect lot became available did we consider buying and building. We look down at the valley AND up at the ski hill - on a special little ridge off Wood Road, where several of the very first homes were built. (Mr. Janss was the original developer of Snowmass.) With binoculars, you can see this house from every high point on the mountain.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The house is spacious and every bedroom has a view. The two 'kids'' rooms - 6 twin beds in two rooms with intervening rumpus area - are separated from the 'adult' king bedrooms by a whole floor, allowing privacy. The hot tub is on the lowest level with the kids rooms. The large deck is off the living-dining room kitchen. The steam shower and the Jacuzzi, inside, are good for tired bones, as well. The fully appointed kitchen makes large meals for many people an easy assignment. We have every book you never read in high school, as well as best sellers, thrillers and beach trash. And we have a piano.
