The home’s previous owner, local investor Pat Scanlan, said new owners will have a chance to be a part of Two Mile Ranch’s history. 

‘The property is a precious glimpse into Aspen’s past, epitomizing the essence of legacy while preserving a cherished remnant of the Roaring Fork Valley’s ranch heritage,’ said Scanlan. 

‘Preserving the property held great significance to me. The 10-year vesting rights create a unique opportunity to construct 10,000 square feet of new space, which is a rare privilege.

‘Additionally, the thoughtful inclusion of conservation easements on the ranch and neighboring ranches will ensure the preservation of this idyllic landscape.’
