Historic Victorian with a Sprightly Renovation Asks $8.5M

New, 1 comment

Fresh off a gut remodel and a backyard addition, one of the "grandest Victorians in Aspen" is asking a whopping $8.5M for an eclectic, colorful interior hidden behind a classy façade. Dating back to 1884, this stately old white-clapboard home now connects to a brand new, never-been-lived-in red-brick cottage, and though the two are more than a century apart, the interior renovation was such that you'd barely be able to tell the difference on the inside of this 4,700-square-foot, five-bedroom home. With a generous wrap-around porch that begs for a rocking chair and a morning paper, and an interior that—aside from the window seats, ornate bannisters, and wide-plank ash flooring—looks like a late-2000s design blog compilation, the duality might be a bit jarring for those who expect entirely classic experiences from their historic properties. Still, perhaps we can all agree that the stained-glass squares framing the windows are the very dictionary definition of "charming" and be content to leave it at that. Do have a look:
