Ski-in/ski-out might cut it in the winter, but come summer, it’s all about proximity to town’s world-class hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails. Here are four homes on the market that are perfect for Aspen’s active summer life.
Located near the stunning views offered by the Hay Trail as well as the routes rocky double-track biking, this peaceful country farmhouse featured spectacular Mt. Sopris views as well as 360-degree views of Sopris Mountain Ranch. This warm and inviting home offers 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and is among the best equestrian properties within the Ranch. Features include walnut flooring, multiple fireplaces, new radiant heat, and opportunity for expansion. Ted Borchelt, Sotheby’s International Realty, 970-927-8080
This four-bedroom, three-bathroom property adjoins the Windstar open space, which means that fantastic horseback riding and hiking is right outside the door. The horse ranch also features pastures that have fully automated irrigation fed by senior water rights. The barn has an up-to-date, one-bedroom caretaker apartment, four stalls with outdoor runs, terrific tack room, and plenty of storage. Lead friends in a informal class in the yoga loft, which can double as an office. Carol Dopkin, Engels & Volkers, 970-925-8400, email@example.com
Located on the north side of the street with Aspen Mountain views and southern exposure, this home, just a few blocks from the Rio Grande Trail, features a two-car, oversized garage accessed from the rear alley, two patios, outdoor hot tub/spa, elevator, master bedroom on entry level, and a temperature and humidity controlled 350-bottle wine room that is perfect for kicking off summer.

Located on the 10th Fairway at Maroon Creek Club directly under the incredible biking and hiking of Buttermilk Mountain, this six-bedroom home features rich woods, strong stone, high-ceilings, dramatic views, and a great floor plan. The home also has three separate entertaining areas, wine room, media room with drop-down projector and screen (for the last few episodes of Game of Thrones, naturally), as well as an outdoor fire pit and hot tub.
