What to Expect
Expect to be impressed by the mountain views and the feeling of privacy East Aspen provides while still being wholly accessible. Additionally, prepare to get in touch with nature, as East Aspen is the proud home of the North Star Nature Preserve, which resides along the Roaring Fork River.
The luxuries of modern times meet the natural rejuvenation of the outdoors. People living in East Aspen can typically hear the Roaring Fork River while taking in the views from their yard. The winter brings it's own peace and quiet from through traffic as Independence Pass is closed during the winter months making the East side a quiet cross country skiing paradise.
The town’s rich artistic tradition of classical music, jazz, visual arts, ballet, and theater.
At the downtown Aspen Art Museum, there is free entry and and a rooftop cafe in the Shigura Ban-designed building. The historic Wheeler Opera House is the place to catch live acts ranging from musicians to comedians and even local school plays. Spending a Sunday afternoon on the lawn at the Aspen Music Festival’s Benedict Music Tent is a summer rite of passage.
Free market real estate is dominated by high price points and low vacancy rates.
Single family homes, ranches and condos are always in high demand. Many prefer to live within Aspen city limits, where land is hard to come by, so tear-downs and remodels are common and price tags high. In Aspen city limits, you will find a mix of updated Victorian mining cabins in the West End, large, opulent homes on Red Mountain and penthouses and condos in the downtown core. Outside of downtown, in greater Pitkin County, larger custom homes are commonly built amid the wilderness, on larger parcels and offering expansive mountain views. Both working cattle and hay ranches as well as smaller, “gentleman” ranches are just a short and scenic drive from Aspen’s downtown core.
