This year has been a far cry from the year we hoped it would be, but it's not too late to find your fairytale ending. Redstone Castle, an opulent Colorado estate listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was just listed for sale at $19.75 million, and it's sure to be a dream come true for its new owners.
The 24,000-square-foot, 42-room home sits on a gated 153 acres in the gorgeous town of Redstone, just an hour outside of Aspen. Redstone Castle was fully restored in 2018, combining modern luxury with grand European design, and it is considered one of Colorado’s most significant historical and architectural landmarks.
“Having been involved with Redstone Castle over the last 50 years, I can say that the castle and the acreage are in the best condition that they have ever been,” says Jeff Bier, with Coldwell Banker Mason Morse, the agency with the listing. “You don’t need to lift a finger. The property is in incredible shape.”
In addition to the castle, this sprawling property includes a carriage house, horse arena, and the right to build 20,000 square feet of additional cabins or cottages in private wooded areas to ensure you have the property of your dreams.
The Tudor-style mansion was built in 1902 by coal magnate John Cleveland Osgood and became a luxurious sportsman's destination for the likes of Teddy Roosevelt, J.P. Morgan, and the Rockefellers. Leather embossed walls, Tiffany-designed chandeliers, aluminum leaf ceilings and frieze, linen-lined walls by Italian artists, and imported marble-adorned fireplaces offer a glimpse of the lifestyle of the country's most powerful families at the turn of the 20th century.
Redstone Castle houses 42 rooms with 11 bedroom suites, a reception hall, formal dining room, library, drawing room, music parlor, game room, and a sun porch with breathtaking views year-round. The property is nestled between two wilderness areas and national forests and offers 2,000 feet of frontage along the Crystal River. Its spectacular location offers access to high country and year-round outdoor recreation, from private fishing to backcountry skiing.
“Redstone Castle is one of the most regal and oldest mansions in the Colorado Rockies,” said Chris Souki with Coldwell Banker Mason Morse. “It’s a true piece of history. The irreplaceability of the castle, combined with the acreage, pristine setting, and value created through the mindful stewardship of the current owners make this property an incredible opportunity.”
