As Aspen City Council further restricts the potential of new residential development downtown (more on that in a future Skinny), the Hotel Jerome Residences may be the last of their kind.
The four new luxury penthouses are part of the Mill Building, which sits at the gateway of Aspen’s core on Mill St. — adjacent to the historic Hotel Jerome, a stone’s throw from Rio Grande Park, and 129 steps from Restaurant Row. Completed last summer, the building also contains offices and four affordable units — perhaps one of the last new mixed-use buildings in town to include free-market residences.
“Besides the in-town convenience, and having a brand-new product, the partnership with The Hotel Jerome is by far the most unique aspect,” says Chris Striefel, the listing broker. “Nowhere else in town can you have a whole-ownership luxury condo serviced by a four-star hotel.”
Auberge Resorts Collection, which operates the iconic Hotel Jerome, provides management services for the entire Mill Building, including owner services such as concierge, valet, housekeeping, in-room dining, catering, personal shopping, ski concierge and valet, and preferential access and discounts to The Jerome’s restaurants and spa. Auberge also provides rental management services if desired by owners, as well as access to Auberge Resorts properties worldwide.
The 3-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 2000 sq ft residences were designed by Alex Papachristidis Interiors — named to Architectural Digest’s prestigious AD 100 list of top designers in 2017 — and Alan Orenbuch Architect, both of New York. Exuding a modern, urban decor, with white oak flooring and Italian Calcutta Gold marble surfaces, they also seamlessly take in Aspen’s great outdoors. Top-floor penthouses feature 1,300 sq ft of outdoor living space, including terraces with outdoor kitchens and fireplaces and rooftop decks with 360-degree views ranging from Aspen Mountain to Independence Pass to Red Mountain.
Speaking of the roof, The Mill may be Aspen’s greenest building, thanks mainly to how it was designed on top. It boasts Aspen’s largest green roof, home to an extensive garden of native shrubs and plants, which besides its aesthetics, provides thermal improvements and a rainwater harvesting system. Other sustainable initiatives include solar hot water panels that heat all the building’s water and a geothermal closed-loop system providing 100 percent of the HVAC loads in the building.
With its brick and sandstone facades complementing the Victorian-era Jerome, and the more contemporary north- and east-facing sides featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and retractable glass doors, The Mill’s unique design “creates a historic feeling combined with a modern lifestyle,” adds Rudin.
The Hotel Jerome Residences at The Mill are currently priced at $6-$7 million. Contact us for more information.
