About the property

Contemporary Chic Chalet On Aspen Mtn - Owned by Interior Designer to the Stars

Ski and Summer Heaven! Hike the Ute! Or be at the base of Aspen Mountain for Fourth of July! Roll out of one of the three king-sized bedroom suites, all three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms; step out the door, and be enjoying truffle fries at Ajax Tavern or cruise to the Gondola in five seconds -- and end of day, ski back or walk right back into your sumptuous living room after a long day! Take a couple more steps and you are in the hot tub or pool, or step into The Nell or The Sky for Apres ski. The residence, on Aspen Mountain, is just a few seconds from all the premiere winter and summer top hot spots and luxury entertainment and shopping just steps from your designer door. In the summer, you can't get any closer to the best hikes: Aspen Mountain and locals favourite "The Ute."

The Residence is on Ute Avenue at the cul-de-sac of The Little Nell. Coming down Aspen Mountain, looking at Ajax Tavern, just veer to the right and you are at your back door. Click off your skis in winter and step into your home with a real wood-burning fireplace (a rarity in Aspen). Logs delivered to the door daily.

Three king bedrooms, each with an en suite private bathroom and shower. Fabulous art, great custom design, plasmas in each room and luxe linens and custom closets.

You will love the radiant heating each of the three bathrooms! Super fabulous and yummy for each guest. Hotel bathrobes, as well, to make yourselves at home.

Surround sound in living room and master suite and bath for great movies or IPad music! Great sound, fabulous location with private outdoor patio and bbq, right on base of Aspen Mountain ...all your friends will be so envious they will drop by, no doubt.

Gourmet contemporary kitchen, with a views up to Red Mountain to the right and Aspen Mountain to the left.

Chill on the patio with some Champagne or Rose' in summer or ski-in and out with Hotty Toddys in the winter. You are only steps from the heated swimming pool, hot tub, spa and fabulous gym (with Pilates too).

Designer touches throughout, magazine-quality finish for those who know and appreciate the difference.

City Market is just one block! Grocery and wine delivery and maid service available and recommended.

Get your fun and relaxation on, with the wood-burning fireplace roaring and the wine chilling, no matter what season. Grab a "to-go" cocktail and head out the door for immediate five-star entertaining.

*The Sky Hotel, which is adjacent to our property and the Little Nell, is being demolished to build a new W hotel. We do not know how this will impact the noise levels during working hours over the next several months*

About Beth Ann Shepherd

.....a creative, an artist, a lover of great travel, adventure, great design and the energy, peace, tranquility and enjoyment of Aspen living. Day job, well, Interior Designer 'to the Stars,' so they say, but stepping into Aspen all the work, phones, conference calls, computers all fall away, which is one of the town's magical attributes. There are many....Aspen is like falling in love - every day provides new adventure. Aspen also provides as much relaxation or as much fun and volume, as you so desire. We love to hike and spend time outdoors, but somedays, we prefer long wine-laden lunches (Ajax Tavern in the winter or Mezzaluna and Woody Creek in the summer) or we often skip the crowds and just walk over to the Isis Theatre for movies or watch movies at home with a roaring fire, whilst watching the snow fall.

Beth Ann Shepherd purchased this condo in 2013

Why Beth Ann Shepherd chose Aspen

This location is the absolute best in Aspen. Ski-in and Ski-Out, literally 20 steps to The Little Nell, Ajax Tavern, The Sky Hotel and City Market. Ski to Gondola in 10 seconds.

Great windows and light in each room and with three king bedrooms and the potential of three designer-quality bathrooms, we couldn't resist buying this lil'

chic chalet, in this A + location and turning it into our Aspen dream turnkey property.

Leave your car, your worries, your thoughts at home and jump into this five-star luxury spot for a week or more. Just have fun! We insist!

What makes this condo unique

Ski-in; Ski-out; Gourmet Kitchen; Three King Bedrooms; Three En Suite Bathrooms; Designer Art & Décor; Four Plasma Televisions; Desk Area; Dining Area with Great Flexibility for Family or Grown-up Entertaining; Steps to best restaurants, shopping, market, and everything Aspen offers.

In summer, 'The Ute' is the favorite locals hike and this residence is on Ute Avenue, so perfect for hiking Ute or going up farther to the top of Aspen Mountain.

The gondola is only steps and you can see it out the slider doors. Never a dull view, summer or winter.

If you know the difference and expect five-star fun, luxury and location, this is the place for you.

With a luxurious, yet sexy design style, to be featured in two design magazines this season, this property is sure to please. We try to customize your trip as much as possible -- just ask.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your Aspen condo for the past 2 weeks. It was absolutely perfect for us – the beds were extremely comfortable, the furnishings and accessories were amazing, and it seems that you thought of every little detail when stocking the kitchen items, supplies, etc. We will definitely be in touch about renting again next summer!

Amazing Slopeside Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo is fantastic! It surpassed our very high expectations! The condo is stylish but comfortable and relaxing after a day spent on the slopes. The location is steps from the gondola and the Little Nell! We can’t wait to return!

Perfect location, awesome accommodations

  • 5 of 5

It is in a perfect location, literally a walk to everything. The ski in/out is directly off the Aspen mountain gondola. You can ski/walk to your front door. The parking spot reserved for the condo is right outside the door of the condo. It makes driving to other mountain for morning first runs and coming to Aspen mountain for last/late runs incredibly convenient. The kitchen is top notch. It does have a Nespresso, so bring your pods. Every bed is a comfy king size, the bathrooms all have heated floors and the wood burning fireplace is perfect. The hot tub is out the front door, about 100ft. There is a washer and dryer inside the condo, makes it easy to keep clean clothes and dry wet snow clothes. The owner is incredibly easy to communicate with. We will stay here again.

Perfect place, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weekend getaway full of shopping, food and fun! This condo was the perfection place for our group retreat! We enjoyed being steps away from the Little Nell and all the downtown Aspen has to offer! The condo is bright, easily accessed and well appointed and thought out. Look forward to another trip to Aspen soon! Would definitely love to stay here again!

Nearest Airport
7 Miles
Nearest Restaurant
Ajax Tavern, The Little Nell, The Sky Hotel
Car: not necessary

This is Aspen finest five-star location. You are right on Ajax Mountain, mere five seconds from The Little Nell, featuring the best social scene; seconds from The Gondola; the famous Ute hike; Ajax Tavern; The Sky Hotel and all the luxury shopping within steps of this residence. Just know, once your friends find out where you are, they may just keep dropping by for cocktails just to ski-in to your living room or grab a to-go cocktail before dinner. LOL!

Compare this property to The Little Nell Pfeifer Suite, which is the same size, but only a two-bedroom, two bath, whereas here, you have three bedrooms and three en suite baths and air-conditioning -- a rare luxury in Aspen!!!! More for less and Nell is your neighbor.
