Art collector Nancy Magoon is ready to part with the Colorado mansion she and her late husband built to showcase their art collection. The sprawling estate in Aspen is now listed for $16.9 million.

The Magoons bought the wooded property in 1984 and then proceeded to build the ideal backdrop for their formidable—and expensive—art collection. The couple’s holdings feature works from art world superstars such as Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol.

The three-story home sits on two parcels of land, which total 4.5 acres, which are part of the gated Starwood community just minutes from downtown.

The property is surrounded by botanical gardens, a stream, stone pathways, two architectural bridges, a breathtaking sculpture garden, and spectacular views of the Elk Mountains.

The interiors of the 10,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom home feature gallery walls designed to display artwork. Open living spaces highlight the views of the property’s decorative gardens and the area mountains. Luxury amenities include a gym, office, and rec room.

Throughout the interior spaces, the white walls, clean lines, and simple design let spectacular artwork take center stage. The home is as contemporary and fresh-looking today as it was when it was built three decades ago.

Magoon was born into a wealthy New York real estate family and her husband, Bob, was an eye surgeon, according to Architectural Digest. He died last year, and she is now ready to downsize.

The couple’s art collection isn’t included in the sale price. Magoon plans to keep some pieces and donate others to museums. But she is willing to make a deal with the new owners to leave the pieces in the sculpture garden or perhaps sell them to another interested buyer. Marian Lansburgh of Douglas Elliman is the listing agent.

A pristine property, surrounded by the gorgeous mountain landscape and ready to be filled with priceless treasures—this art-forward Aspen estate is a masterpiece all its own.
