17 years ago I moved here and have never looked back. Aspen is one of the biggest small towns you will live. There is more hiking, biking and skiing, music and fantastic food in the downtown core.
There are some wonderful core condominiums that you could purchase in your price range that you could walk to all that is important to you. I see you wrote a home which would be difficult to obtain however the east side of town has a couple options that would be closer to a home atmosphere.
The east side of town is just a brief couple moments from town and is quiet and easy access to everything you desire.
I would like to have the opportunity to earn your business! Please give me a call at your convenience at 970-379-2299 or email me at email@example.com
All the best,
