Legacy Lot, Aspen, CO
Rarely do history and opportunity come together as perfectly as they do on Red Mountain’s Rubey. During Aspen’s rebirth as a cultural, intellectual, and recreational hub in the 1950s, noted architect Fritz Benedict, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright who would go on to transform Aspen’s built environment, bought a ranch on Red Mountain.
Decades later, the local lifestyle pulses strong from this history. The Power of Four — Aspen’s four ski mountains — also represents the myriad recreational possibilities of all four seasons here. The Aspen Idea — the concept of a community that nurtures mind, body, and spirit to fulfill a complete human being — lives on in Aspen’s world-class class arts, cultural, environmental, and athletic institutions.
Nestled among cottonwood and aspen groves at the base of Red Mountain, just east of prestigious Willoughby Way, the Rubey presents a unique opportunity to create your own legacy on the last available lot in the Rubey Family Subdivision. Land within this subdivision has never been available for purchase - until now. Spread over 5.28 acres and with approvals to build up to 19,750 SF, the property is a rare gem in a community known for its strict growth controls and predominant open space - offering unheard of potential to create a family compound within walking distance to downtown Aspen. Private and secluded, this south-facing jewel receives abundant sunlight and boasts panoramic views spanning from Aspen Mountain (front and center) to Majestic Mt. Sopris. Adjacent to hiking and biking trails and within earshot of a mountain stream, it embodies the best of what Aspen has to offer.
Build up to 15,000 square feet above grade, 4,000 square feet below grade, and a 750-square-foot garage—without needing any transferrable development rights.
