Welcome to West End
Picturesque and cozy, this Aspen neighborhood welcomes residents with open arms.
Located just above Aspen’s Main Street, the West End encompasses a fourteen-block by six-block area of town, packed with beautiful luxury homes. This exclusively residential area includes stunning and historic single-family homes as well as high-end condos.
The West End is particularly well-known for its multitude of classic Victorians, built by wealthy silver barons who moved to town in the late 1800s. These Victorian homes truly stand the test of time; protected by the Aspen Historic Preservation Committee, they have been beautifully restored and sell well into the millions. For an upgraded home in the West End, buyers can expect to pay around $11 million.
