Aspen built a city golf course and put homes around it for the Cemetery Lane, Silver King, Snowbunny, and Mountain View areas. This area then became more affordable and was where many of the locals lived. These areas now offer value because these lots are duplex lots that are being redeveloped into luxury new duplexes for second home owners with a mix of locals.Aspen in the late 1800’s was the third largest city in Colorado. The downtown area was where most people lived. There were some nice Aspen Victorians built on the West End of Aspen. Today the West End of Aspen is a great neighborhood that is walking distance to town and the Aspen Music Tent. There are still many remodeled Victorians from the era. When skiing came in the 1950’s, Aspen began to sprawl out like other towns. In the 1960’s,
On the opposite mountain than Aspen Mountain and across the town of Aspen, Red Mountain became the top subdivision in Aspen with its huge panoramic views of Aspen and Aspen Mountain. Houses on Red Mountain have only gotten bigger and more luxurious over the years. At the base of Aspen Mountain is considered the best address in Aspen Colorado today, Willoughby Way. Willoughby Way has some of the largest most expensive homes in Aspen, in the Pitkin Green subdivision. The land is a bit flatter and one does not have to drive up Red Mountain to get home, but the views won’t disappoint you.
In the 1970’s, Aspen kept sprawling out further from downtown Aspen on the east side. We all of a sudden had neighborhoods such as Aspen Grove, Eastwood, and Mountain Valley. These were places that local families could afford and moved to. Over the years, many of the homes have been torn down and rebuilt. Many of the lots in Mountain Valley are zoned for duplexes. These areas now offer some of the greatest values in Aspen Colorado.
On the west side, Meadowood and West Buttermilk were developed as new neighborhoods that locals moved to. Then the Starwood subdivision was developed as the first gated subdivision in Aspen that offered panoramic views of Aspen Mountain and the surrounding areas but was a 20 minute drive from downtown Aspen. This subdivision catered to the second homeowners and the stars that came here. One local star that lived there and built the first very large home in Starwood was John Denver.
Today, Prince Bandar has the largest home in Aspen in the Starwood subdivision.
