Rare Historic Aspen Cottage Hits Market for $17.9 Million

New, 2 comments


A cottage originally built in 1885 by Aspen's first "candy man" has been restored and is now on the market for almost $18 million. Julius Berg, a local confectioner, built the home during the silver mining boom and his descendants occupied the home until 1971. An Aspen real estate development firm, Austin Lawrence Partners purchased the property in 2010 and after a few years of work, the home is ready for its debut. With 5 bedrooms and 8 baths, the 6,512 square-foot cottage has been transformed, with huge windows, modern lighting, and even a rooftop deck with views of Aspen mountain. We're loving the blend of historic charm and modern amenities, and the location on a corner lot in Aspen can't be beat. Now who has the cash?
