Listing of the Day
Location: Glenwood Springs, Colorado
Price: $23 million
“Pristine, pristine, pristine,” is how broker Billy Long of Ranch Marketing Associates described Inyanga Ranch’s 530 acres of land. Resting in a secluded box canyon, the ranch includes several historic cabins, in addition to a chic, modernist home designed with an earthen palette reflective of the surrounding landscape.
In keeping with the canyon’s essential tones, the home is tastefully constructed of vibrant wood, subdued metal and layered granite that frame over-sized windows opening up to both impressionistic vistas and the nearby, modern swimming pool. Lying in the center of the vast property, the home offers the perfect opportunity to both reflect on the natural beauty of the surrounding world and to hang up your boots after a long day of adventuring.
“The property is a huge playground,” Mr. Long said. “You can’t find anything with this kind of geological amenities. You’re surrounded by forest, river, lush meadows.”
Indeed, the property is home to nine trout-filled ponds, a diverse and abundant wildlife, and acre-after-acre of sublime American land typically only seen on museum postcards or read about in the works of such great American writers as Walt Whitman or Henry David Thoreau. Appropriately, the property is bordered by White River National Park–America’s most visited National Park–and Western Colorado’s own Flat Tops Wilderness, flanked by the property’s sandstone cliffs.
The property includes 530 acres with one main residence and several additional buildings, including a lodge and cabin. While the modern main residence, features two-bedrooms and one bathroom, the property has eight bedrooms and five bathrooms in total.
Redesigned with a keen eye to both the surrounding area and the comforts of modern life by Jack Snow of Colorado-based RKD Architects, the main residence includes a pool, soothing steam shower and modern fireplace.
Whether it’s a gondola ride to the top of a world-class ski slope in the winter or a hike through beautiful natural vistas in the summer, nearby Aspen offers a variety of year-round activities for those wishing to take a break from their ranching wonderland. Filled with luxury ski resorts, fine-dining, and an extensive downtown shopping district, Aspen’s quaint charm mingles with the very best of contemporary life effortlessly—a perfect way to entertain visiting family and friends.
