Old Snowmass Real Estate
Old Snowmass, located just 11 miles from Aspen, feels like it is a hundred miles and a few decades away in terms of character. This is an area where you will find Homes, Farms, Ranches, and Equestrian properties on sprawling acreage that is hard to believe still exists so close to Aspen. There is a rural feel here with no downtown or commercial areas, nothing but horses running in the fields and amazing views of Capital Peak to the northwest and Snowmass Ski Area to the southwest.
Old Snowmass St Benidicts Monestary is home to a community of about 20 Cistercian (Trappist) monastic monks, part of a 900-year-old tradition. The roots of our Order reach still further back to the Rule of St. Benedict, written 1,500 years ago. The monastery sits deep in the Capital Creek Valley right before the road turns to dirt with amazing views of the Colorado high county. The monks encourage visitors so stop in and you will immediately be relaxed by the tranquil environment of the brotherhood.
Old Snowmass is situated in the mid valley, near the mouth of Snowmass Creek along State Highway 82 between Aspen and Basalt. The clientele here desires acreage, privacy and a beautiful rolling landscape. If you are looking for horse property or the opportunity to develop your custom mountain home this would be a great place to look. At Bowden Properties we can help you find that perfect location to build your dream home, then make building it an enjoyable experience with our vast experience in custom home development. – Old Snowmass Real Estate
