Christmas in Aspen is like hot cocoa and marshmallows, they just go together. So this week we take you to the heart of Aspen, Colorado for two homes that are exactly what snow-filled dreams are made of. Take your pick in our latest Splurge vs. Steal.
Splurge: Hyman Avenue Stunner With Magazine Quality Looks In Aspen For $16.9M
First up, our splurge. Now for those of you who want a mix of city and mountain life, there is no better place than Aspen. And its quaint downtown is anything but boring, offering high-end eateries and boutiques, as well as some enchanting casual spots to grab a cup of joe or mingle with friends. And living right in the middle of the action doesn’t get any better than this.
Enter 428 E. Hyman Avenue, Unit A. It’s considered one of Aspen’s finest penthouses and comes ideally perched above the the Hyman Avenue walking mall. Here you’ll enjoy three-gracious-bedrooms which are all en-suite, plus four-full-and-one-half-bathrooms, a home office, cozy den, and light-filled living areas that are right out of a magazine.
Of course, the fit and finish is top notch. This includes rustic chic décor touches from the stacked stone fireplace to the original brick walls. From the master you have views of Red Mountain and your own private deck to take in the scenery. There is also an inviting hot tub deck with views of Aspen Mountain that will be the envy of all your friends. Yes, life doesn’t get much grander than this.
Per the listing, “Fully furnished and although the hustle of downtown Aspen is just downstairs, the feeling of privacy and serenity emanates throughout this special home.”

Steal: Mountain Laurel Gem With Picturesque Snow Scenes From Every Angle For $8.95M
Next, we have our steal. This one is for those who want a mountain home that’s five minutes from the Gondola and the price of our splurge. This four-bedroom, three-full-and-two-half-bathroom beauty will stop you in your tracks.
There is wall-to-wall glass of snow-filled splendor, gorgeous interiors with sleek contemporary design, and plenty of fireplaces to warm you up! We love the east side locale and brand new construction.
And it sits on a sleepy cul-de-sac with 0.39-acres of land that backs to thickets of eye-catching Aspen Groves. You’ll enjoy views of Independence Pass and Aspen Mountain, with a generous 500-square-foot-terrace to take it all in. And when it’s time to unwind, you have your choice of not one but two master suites.
As the listing states, “Arrigoni white oak flooring and the Henrybuilt kitchen and millwork tie together the warm, current mountain design.”
