This 7 bedrooms, 19 bath and 11,825 sq.ft. mansion is on 35 gorgeous acres!
Sunset Ridge's sense of arrival can only be described as awe-inspiring - cliff-side, on a private peninsula with a breath taking mountainous panorama. The residence's bold, yet simplistic, linear architecture naturally draws a first time visitor to a glass, entryway door offering a first hint of the refinement of finishes and viewscape beyond. The owner along with the renowned Aspen architect, Bill Poss, have artfully designed a residence that not only frames the view, but seemingly integrates the mountains as an intrinsic element to the structure. Overlooking a pond reflecting the mountain peaks beyond and fed by a cascading stream running beneath the master suite bridge over waterfalls to the pond below, finishes and appointments were painstakingly and globally sourced by the design team.

Today's Mortgage Rates 
https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/mortgage-rate

United States MBA 30-Yr Mortgage Rate


Mortgage Rate in the United States averaged 6.32 percent from 1990 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 10.56 percent in April of 1990 and a record low of 3.47 percent in December of 2012. Today's average rate is 4.69%

Mortgage Rates Still Solid Despite Warning Signs
Apr 4 2018, 3:56PM


Mortgage rates were sideways to slightly lower today, depending on the lender.  That presents something of an opportunity because underlying bond markets have been suggesting a move in the other direction over the past few days.  In other words, the bonds that underlie mortgage rates have weakened, but rates themselves are stable or stronger.

Much of this paradox has to do with the time of day that lenders generate their rate sheets.  For example, if rate sheets were updated in real time, we might be seeing slightly higher rights this afternoon.  With all of the above in mind, today's relatively lower rates are compelling for those who are in a position to lock.  If nothing changes about underlying markets by tomorrow morning, most lenders will likely be slightly worse off.  Of course, "worse" is a relative term, because today's rates are in line with 2-month lows.  On the other hand, the overall range has been very narrow over that 2-month time frame.
