A Turnkey Aspen Home Heads to Auction, and All You Need to Bring is a Checkbook and Toothbrush

Since the pandemic, Aspen’s real estate market has boomed to incredible heights in a short amount of time. Homes have sold for record-breaking prices, including a whopping $77 million deal that went down earlier this year. Supply is limited and demand is high, which has driven up prices, and Aspen’s tight building restrictions mean that newly constructed homes are increasingly rare and highly desirable. Buyers looking for secondary or tertiary properties are increasingly looking for something turnkey, allowing them to move in and enjoy the property immediately without spending months or even years furnishing or redesigning it.

So, if your real estate sites are turned toward the Rocky Mountains and a turnkey property is your speed, then look no further than 845 Brush Creek Road, just a few scenic miles north of downtown Aspen. The home is situated snugly between Snowmass Village and Aspen and is part of Aspen County. Set on 2.85 acres, it spans 8,250 square feet and has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Initially built in 1995, this home was renovated from the ground up in 2024 and feels like brand-new construction. The home has a neutral color palette punctuated with vibrant, colorful art pieces that, like the furnishing, transfer with the home.

Elite Auctions recently announced the property will go up on the auction block without reserve on July 15. Listed for $20 million with Lester Properties, the starting auction price will be determined by the registered bidders. “The Aspen market, already one of the most sought-after luxury home destinations in the world, has been white-hot for the past several years following the pandemic,” says Randy Haddaway, founder and CEO of Elite Auctions. “It’s rare to see what is essentially a new construction home come to market in this location at such an incredible value. What’s more, the home comes fully furnished, including the art, so all you’ll need are the keys.”


The contemporary property epitomizes Aspen’s quintessential luxury mountain aesthetic, with clean lines and materials like wood, stone, and glass. You access the home up a lengthy, winding driveway to reach the house, which is set far back from Brush Creek Road. One of the most expensive homes in the area, this property is exceptionally secluded and surrounded by towering trees and rolling hills that make you feel worlds away from your neighbors.

The home features an open-plan layout with views of nature from nearly every room. The flowing main level includes the spacious living room with a two-sided stone fireplace that separates two sitting areas, a dining area, a custom-built gourmet kitchen, and an attached two-car garage. The double-sided living room is wrapped in pocket glass sliding doors and seamlessly flows onto the terrace, where there is an outdoor seating area with a fire pit and a dining table. The main level also features a large media room and a gym with state-of-the-art equipment, including a Peloton bike, plus a private terrace. For young children or teens, a lofted room on the main level with multiple beds is this home’s answer to a bunk room. The remaining bedrooms, including the primary suite, are found on the upper level.

The primary bedroom feels like a five-star hotel suite and takes up nearly an entire wing of the upper floor. There’s a sumptuous oversized bed, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, separate seating area, and a massive wraparound terrace with multiple loungers that overlooks the lush rolling hills. There are small terraces with sliding glass doors off a few of the bedrooms as well. The home has a neutral color palette but is punctuated with vibrant, colorful art pieces that also come with the home.

“There is no address in Aspen that is completely customized and finished at this level and size at this price per square foot,” says David Lester of Lester Properties. “If a buyer traveled two miles up the road they would be looking at a price tag two times the price of this home. This home represents value and luxury living wrapped into one.”

Previews for the home started on June 20 and will end July 14, one day prior to the auction.
