The real estate brokers at Portfolio Aspen Properties announce the sale of a historic Woody Creek ranch for $27 million, making it the Aspen’s second highest real estate sale of 2013 behind the $41 million sale of the Jigsaw Ranch on the backside of Aspen Mountain.
A historic 813 acre ranch, known as Aspen Valley Ranch, once listed for $88 million in 2008 sold for just $27 million. Despite price reductions over the years, the owner was unable to find a buyer and the lender, Alpine Bank, foreclosed on its loan in December 2012. An entity called AVR AH, LLC purchased the ranch from Alpine Bank, which closed on August 30, 2013.
Features of the ranch include a 5 bedroom/5+bath main house constructed in 2009, a ranch manager’s cabin, a barn, pastures, senior water rights, trails, and grand views in all directions of the Aspen Valley. Aspen Valley Ranch has historic significance because it has been a working ranch since the late 1800s and included a road dating back to that time that provided access to the public. The owners and the county reached a settlement to the dispute that required the owner to build two new public trails that bypassed the home sites and lead hikers and riders into the BLM land above the Aspen Valley Ranch.
According to Erik Berg, owner of Portfolio Aspen Properties, “the buyer of Aspen Valley Ranch got an exceptional one of a kind property at a bargain price.” He went on to note that “although it’s tough, if you are patient and persistent, you can still find great value in real estate deals in today’s market.”
