Need a wonderful flat sunny building site only minutes from Aspen yet you feel like you are in the country? Just minutes from Aspen, this is where Castle Creek Valley and Conundrum Creek Valley split into one of the widest land areas on Castle Creek Road, thus sunny. Pick where you want to build your dream home, the activity envelope is ready for you to decide. This is a spectacular sunny flat 3-acre lot only 8 minutes from the core of Aspen. The Aspen school bus stops right at the top of Conundrum Creek. This property is great for dogs, horses and more and especially great for families.

The Conundrum Creek Valley is the spiritual valley of the Ute Indians. The climb and hunt to the hot springs was a coming of age for a young man in the Ute Indian tribe. You have sunshine from early in the morning until evening. The lot has a small cozy cottage on it that one can live in or rent while building a house. The views are looking up at the Conundrum Vally and the back side of Highlands or down the valley at the red cliffs on Castle Creek Road. You may be able to keep the cottage as a CDU if one seeks the approval of the county.

There are several building sites to choose from on this site and currently this site falls under 5,750 square feet that is buildable above grade and would be a Growth Management site or TDR site for additional square footage. Anyone buying the site would do the new site approval once they decided on placement of their home. There are great water rights with an adjudicated spring, pond and a well. On the property current are underground electric, propane, and septic. There is broad band in the valley, Dish, or Star link. You can hear Castle Creek across the road and take country walks on Conundrum Creek Road among the 100-foot Blue Spruce and Aspen Trees. Truly a magical site. No HOA, build what you want. Subject only to County approvals.

Directions: Take Castle Creek to Conundrum Creek Road, Go down the hill across the bridge and turn left, 2nd White Cottage on the right with green trim.
