7 of the Most Extravagant Aspen Homes on the Market Right Now

Aspen has always been a popular vacation-home destination, and it's no surprise why: year-round outdoor pursuits-hiking during warmer months and skiing come winter-are the main attraction, but it also has culture, arts, and a vibrant dining scene. The scenic mountain setting only adds to the appeal.

The pandemic has catapulted interest in owning a property in Aspen to another level, according to Melanie Muss, a broker associate with Douglas Elliman in Aspen, who says that the city is seeing an unprecedented number of sales.

"The demand is outpacing the supply," she says. In 2020 real estate sales in Pitkin County, which includes Aspen, surpassed $4 billion. While commercial properties figure into that number, they primarily include residences. "The record before that was just over $2 billion," says Muss.

And the mountain town set another record in June when Patrick Dovigi, a former Canadian hockey player turned founder of a waste-management company, bought a home for $72.5 million-the highest price anyone has paid for a single-family listing in Aspen.

Despite the number of billionaires who own properties in town, Muss says that what makes Aspen such a draw is that it's a place where the deep-pocketed set and locals mix. "Living here is less about how much money you have and more about what a good day you had," she says.

Following is our list of seven of the most extravagant homes in Aspen that are on the market, at least for now.
