Picturesque Victorian on one of the finest corner lots in Aspen's West End. A complete renovation seamlessly unites the original historic structure with a modern home addition. Light streams through abundant windows, filling the rooms from floor to vaulted ceilings, while warm wood tones and luxury finishes add richness and depth. The design is at once classic and contemporary, respecting the original architecture while elevating it into a luxury residence. The well planned layout has an open living, kitchen and dining room, a media room library and an additional den downstairs, which creates plenty of space for family and guests to spread out.Upstairs, the master suite is a thoughtfully arranged retreat with an adjoining private office, dual closets and a luxurious bath area. Three other en-suite bedrooms exist in the main house, and a detached carriage house includes a bedroom, bath and full kitchen. The carriage house can be rented, used as an additional bedroom or converted into a separate home office.

Equally remarkable is the outdoor space. South facing, the grassy lawn is punctuated with Aspen trees and a dining terrace can be enjoyed throughout the warmer months. A stream runs through the property, adding a peaceful water element. Positioned on a quiet corner away from the traffic of downtown, yet walking distance to all the amenities of the area  the Aspen Institute, Benedict Music Tent, hiking trails, bike paths, shops, galleries and restaurants.

Steeped in Aspen history, The Saunders Victorian dates back to 1885, and its most prominent resident was C.F. Saunders. Saunders owned the original Aspen brewery and tales of his adventures can be found throughout periodicals of that time. The original restoration took place in 1991, and then the full renovation was finished in 2007, completing this truly special place in Aspen's past and present.

Directions: Corner of West Francis and 7th Street.
