Secluded estate at the famed Starwood community in Aspen, Colorado, promises sweeping mountain views and spectacular sunsets.
Folk singer-songwriter John Denver dubbed Starwood “a sweet Rocky Mountain paradise” in an ode to his beloved home, “Starwood in Aspen,” released in 1971. It’s an apt description for not only Denver’s estate and studio, but also the Carroll Drive properties, which include six Starwood parcels totaling 115.7 acres.
The property boasts 23,077 square-feet under roof, which includes a guest house, caretakers’ homes, offices, and maintenance facilities, as well as the main house, designed by Thomas Kligerman of Ike Kligerman Barkley. The main house is described as “arts and crafts style on a Rocky Mountain scale” with 13,175 square-feet and nine wood-burning fireplaces, including a Colorado dry stack moss rock fireplace in the living room. The space is framed with floor-to-ceiling windows offering sweeping mountain views.

There are four en-suite bedrooms, plus a master suite that overlooks one of two trout-stocked ponds on the property. A spacious library and office provide quiet workspaces, while a playroom creates the perfect hideaway for the estate’s youngest residents. A variety of beautiful hardwoods are used throughout the home giving it a natural warmth.
Luxurious amenities include a spacious wine cellar and a hidden snowmelt path leading to an oversized outdoor spa.

Starwood is the only gated community in Aspen, Colorado, offering residents ultimate privacy and an alpine mountain lifestyle. It is regarded as the best place to see all four of Snowmass’ ski mountains and Pyramid Peak, not to mention unobstructed views of Roaring Fork Valley and spectacular sunsets.
