Type: River House

Entire offering price is $6.1M, reduced from $12.5M Offered in parcels: Parcel 1 is comprised of 80 acres for $2,125,000. Parcel 2 encompasses 202 acres for $4,250,000. Located at the western mouth of the picturesque Snowmass Canyon on approximately 1 mile of private Roaring Fork River frontage, the ranch enjoys both the intimate seclusion of a private retreat coupled with opportune access to numerous recreational and social endeavors. Fifteen minutes up the valley are the resort communities of Aspen and Snowmass - both heavenly escapes for winter sports enthusiasts, with four world famous ski areas, and for those who prefer the summer seasons, the area abounds with recreational pursuits such as hiking, fishing and horseback riding. The Ranch on the Roaring Fork is comprised of approximately 282 acres of variable terrain, ranging from rich riparian habitat featuring +/- 1 mile frontage on the Roaring Fork River and three spring-fed trout ponds, to the vibrant pinion and juniper covered red hills on the elevated northern boundary. This unspoiled land spans the second largest privately held river frontage between Old Snowmass and Aspen. The property features irrigated pastures that allow up to 12 horses, as well as owner controlled direct access to National Forest and BLM lands, which the ranch borders all along its northern boundary. The property is home to clusters of dark pine, thick Gambol oak and old growth cottonwood trees, all providing excellent cover and habitat for the extensive wildlife that frequents the ranch. While the easement preserves the property’s natural aesthetics and insures against significant future development, the owners have reserved two building sites for the construction of future residential homes of up to 8,250 sqft. These two homesites are pre-approved for residential dwellings of up to 5,250 sqft through secured entitlements with the county that are valid for 20 years.The purchase of additional Transferable Development Rights (TDR), gives an incoming buyer the ability to increase the maximum allowed square footage to 8,250 sqft. The 20-year entitlement is valuable in its own right as Pitkin County entitlements are approved for periods of 3 years. (TDRs are not included in the sale.) An incoming owner may elect to sell a portion of the ranch at a later date or donate one of the homesites in the form of a conservation easement and receive the associated tax benefits. The ranch features several historic improvements that add tremendous character to the property while providing guest housing and temporary residence to incoming buyers while their new home is being built. Ranch on the Roaring Fork controls nearly 1 mile of the Gold Medal designated Roaring Fork River flowing through the property and three spring-fed trout ponds onsite, the Schoolhouse Ranch is a haven for both the seasoned angling enthusiast and the occasional fisherman alike. The Roaring Fork is one of Colorado’s premier rivers for trout fishing. Running from the top of 12,095 ft Independence Pass, the river flows unobstructed throughout its 70-mile journey to the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs. This private section of the Roaring Fork (the second largest privately held river frontage on the river) is a classic freestone fishery with prime pocket water, riffle-run structures and typical pool drops. The resident brown and rainbow population through this stretch is staggering, with consistent midge presence year round and a strong caddis population in the warmer months. The three ponds offer excellent stillwater fishing for subtly rising trout and the hefty resident fish that dwell in the depths. Additionally, these tranquil waters are home to a host of seasonal birds and waterfowl and are a valuable resource to the extensive local wildlife. There is an abundance of fish-filled waters in the famed Roaring Fork Valley to keep anglers happily casting to a variety of trout species. The Frying Pan River is known for its oversized trout and the buffet of consistent bug life that fatten these trophy fish. Flowing through a picturesque valley lined with sandstone and shale, the “Pan” offers the serious angler the chance to land the lunker that we’re all casting for each day on the water.

Pitkin County Dave Harrigan and Hunter Harrigan Harrigan Land Company

Type: Acreage w/House 2 Beds | 2 Baths | 2353 SqFt

Only forty minutes from Aspen lies the 152 acre White Tip Ranch, a true wilderness retreat on the very doorstep of one of the nation's premier cultural and recreational communities. Few indeed are properties in which you can be enjoying the strains of the Aspen Symphony or a final run down Aspen Mountain, and less than an hour later be hidden away in your personal enclave populated only by quaking aspen and elk. The White Tip Ranch lies at about 9000 feet on the East Fork of Sopris Creek, about 20 minutes south of the hamlet of Old Snowmass, a community only a few minutes from Aspen. Extensive groves of mature aspen surround the ranch and light up spectacularly in the fall, and several meadows provide chances to spot herds of elk and mule deer. Hunting opportunities for elk, black bear and deer may be found on the ranch itself, and on the White River National Forest, with which the ranch shares a .25 mile boundary. A lovely 4.5 acre private lake nestles among the aspen, and offers potential as a trophy trout fishery. Recreational opportunities in the area read like a "Best of Outdoor Activities in the USA" list. Immediately accessible from the ranch are hiking, backpacking and horseback trails that venture deep within the Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness. Famed Capitol Peak and Capitol Lake are less than 10 miles distant, and the icon of the Roaring Fork Valley, 12,953-foot Mount Sopris, is in full view, only six miles to the west. In the winter, nordic skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are available literally from the front doorstep. Downhill skiers, of course, need no introduction to the area, and Aspen Mountain, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk provide a lifetime of runs, all only a short distance away. In the summertime, opportunities for world-class flyfishing, kayaking, ballooning, mountaineering, mountain biking, photography and jeeping abound in the Aspen area. Renowned cultural attractions include the Aspen Music Festival, Aspen Film Festival, Aspen Art Museum, Wheeler Opera House and some of the finest dining on the continent. The White Tip Ranch is graced by a contemporary, 2353 square-foot home with impressive views of of Mount Sopris. The two-bedroom, two-bath home includes ten floor-to-ceiling Italian windows and doors with triple-pane glass, allowing ample Colorado sunshine to flood the living space. Wide-plank Australian beech floors are present throughout, and a massive flagstone fireplace is a centerpiece. The home is entirely off the grid, powered by a combination of photovoltaic cells and a 60-watt propane generator. Heat is supplied from passive solar, propane and the fireplace. A 600-foot-deep well provides ample domestic water. A 3600 square-foot barn complements the home on the White Tip Ranch. Pitkin County allows residential development in two envelopes on this ranch. The primary envelope can accommodate up to 14,000 square feet of structure, of which 7500 square feet may be the residence. A secondary envelope can include a 500-square foot residence, an is ideal for a caretaker's quarters or guest cabin. Ranches with all the recreational and cultural amenities of the White Tip Ranch are precious discoveries, like skiing into an untracked bowl of powder on Aspen Mountain. The White Tip Ranch merges the best of Aspen and the best of wilderness into one lovely package. Harrigan Land Company would be pleased to share this rare discovery with you.
