The massive Colorado ranch, owned by oil and gas executive Charif Souki, was initially listed back in May 2020 for $220 million. This price point propelled it to the top of the list of most expensive residential properties for sale in the U.S.

Biggest Aspen house

Since then, marketing efforts for the property, led by Souki’s son, Chris Souki, along with Carrie Wells (both with Coldwell Banker) have shifted, with the massive ranch being divided into more manageable assets.

One of which is the biggest home on the ranch, Mount Daly, which has been listed alongside a future homesite (so far simply titled Lot 9). It has a 13,000-square-foot proposed floorplan that would outshine all the other existing homesteads on the property.

Asking price

The asking price for the two properties — Mount Daly and Lot 9, the future homesite of a 6-bed, 9-bath dream ranch home with a generous 13,000-square-foot floorplan — is a whopping $30 million.

But that’s not above the mark for properties in the area, especially considering that the lots total 82 acres (in what’s undoubtedly a phenomenal location).

Square footage

Mount Daly house has 5,373 square feet and comes with four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and a barn.

Designed by Michael Fuller, the residence beams with mountain farmhouse aesthetic, with its interiors paying homage to western culture and history. It boasts reclaimed beams, barn wood, stone features and other traditional ranch-style elements.

Rooms with a view

Best of all, the home rests on the valley floor at the confluence of two mountains, offering some of the best Elk Mountain range views. The massive windows carefully placed throughout the home make the most of these views and invite calm and relaxation.
