Blake’s Picks

Real estate fundamentals survive the test of time. Location, value, supply and demand rule.  My latest picks fit the bill!

370 Exhibition Lane

In Aspen, the term “ski in ski out” is widely used but often overstated.  This amazing 6-bedroom home is the definition of true ski access.  Perched alongside the Aspen Highlands main chair lift, an owner has the luxury of leaving the ski mudroom and dropping directly to lift access. This award-winning home is architecturally set apart from all others in Highlands with unparalleled views and great afternoon sun.  Add Ritz-Carlton amenities and you have the perfect ski home.

TBD Red Tail Lane 

With vacant land becoming more and more difficult to find, this single family parcel deserves a good look.  It is in the desirable Aspen School District and offers a friendly building site.  The Brush Creek subdivision is well located for access to both Aspen and Snowmass Village, has great views, and all day sun.  With the water supply tap fees paid, the parcel is ready for your development.  As always, I am happy to suggest a development team to get the process moving.

211 West Hopkins Avenue

This is currently my favorite opportunity in Aspen proper.  The West Hopkins corridor is the most highly sought after location in Aspen’s West End.  Because the existing home is NOT designated historic, this parcel offers several development opportunities depending on the end user’s goal.  Plenty of FAR, a duplex option, views of Aspen Mountain and walking distance to Aspen’s core make this a great investment regardless of the end game.  Buyers are circling, it will not be on market for long!

RON S., Client
“Blake’s background with high end residential clientele is very unique in that he not only has excellent knowledge of what properties cost but also what it takes to make things work in very complicated homes. Blake would be a very valuable asset to anyone looking to get repositioned in the Roaring Fork Valley.”
GREG WOODS | President GF Woods Construction

Top Dog MD Launches New Business

Bisque is a long-time local and small animal vet extraordinaire. We were speaking recently as Bisque has departed from her Aspen animal hospital to start a concierge approach to pet health. She felt that corporate consolidation [...]
