65 Glen Garry Drive Aspen CO
65 Glen Garry is a sophisticated and rustically elegant modern farmhouse inspired by the late 1800's heyday of Aspen. The exterior of reclaimed chinked flat log wood, custom stone masonry and a standing seam Rhein zinc roof is maintenance free. Designed by Al Beyer, the home was completed in 2015 by Rutgers Construction. A stone snowmelt walkway winds to the front door through larkspur, peonies, lupine and columbine flower beds. The nearly one-acre, flat wooded lot is irrigated and beautifully landscaped with abundant native flowers and professionally manicured gamble oak, aspen, and serviceberry trees, which provide privacy and shade. A fenced organic vegetable and herb garden is situated on a sunny spot on the west side of the home.
The master bedroom and guest master suite are located on the upper level, separated by a private sitting area, balcony, and large laundry/craft room. Dual vanities and bathrooms, an oversized shower all in Yule Marble from Mable, Colorado, Perrin and Rowe fixtures, and a restored cast iron soaking tub offer every comfort in the master bath. Leave the door open from the master bedroom deck and awaken to the sounds of rustling aspen trees in the cool mountain breeze, and views up Maroon Creek Valley. Three large light-filled lower level bedrooms are connected by the open family entertainment room with a billiards table and a flat screen TV. An oversized second laundry room with storage, a wine room, and a powder room complete the lower level. Douglas Fir post and beam construction, wide plank white oak flooring and Venetian plaster are found throughout.
The kitchen includes an island with a 5-burner La Cornue stove, custom cooper and brass hood and sink, Sub Zero fridge, and walk-in pantry with large capacity Sub Zero wine fridge, and a second oven and dishwasher. An executive office is conveniently located off the kitchen. The siting area in the kitchen is warmed by a gas fireplace, and walks out to a covered, heated wrap around porch with fire pit, built-in stainless-steel BBQ and outdoor dining area surrounded by a flat sodded yard and perennial gardens. Recover year round in the oversized outdoor Diamond Spa stainless-steel hot tub and pergola covered lounge sitting area after laps in Aspen Highlands Bowl or a road bike ride to Maroon Bells. Rare Aspen subdivision with no City of Aspen transfer tax, just a five-minute walk to Aspen schools, Aspen Highlands Ski Area and across Maroon Creek Road from the Aspen Recreation Center and Iselin Park and tennis courts.
