Artistic. Practical. Enduring.The Gitalong Ranch is breathtaking with unobstructed views from Aspen Mountain to well beyond Snowmass. Just a scenic, 15 minute drive to Aspen, and never do you have to even be on the highway. You are surrounded by open space and wildlife including a 100 strong elk herd. The 14 acre parcel overlooks 200 acres of hay meadows and is one of only nine homes in the coveted White Star Ranch. Harry Teague, one of Aspen's most innovative and distinguished architects, partnered with the owner to create a family estate like no other. They sheathed the main house and roof in simple, corrugated iron, the first house in 20th Century America to take such a radical move. The artistic, exterior design is an echo of both Aspen's mining and ranching vernaculars. The interior maximized the wall space for the owner's astonishing art collection, provided an intimate living environment, and yet still married the house to the sun and views. When one tours the 8,309 square foot house, garage and caretaker's apartment in the main house/compound, you can feel how it fits into the landscape, like a hand into a glove. There are no gutters or downspouts and no need for heat tapes. The roofs are designed to shed the snow and the porches around three sides of the home deflect the summer sun, so rarely is the A/C even needed. A 2,849 square foot barn features 4 horse stalls that open to the outdoors, and provides additional living space with a separate 1 bedroom/1.5 bedroom apartment. A small separate shed keeps tools and machinery organized and out of sight. The roofs are covered with solar collectors making for energy efficient, economic and comfortable living. The picturesque Gitalong Ranch, with its understated aesthetic, provides the privacy and luxury you desire in a mountain estate.
