Amtrak opened a route from Denver International Airport to Winter Park, Colorado, ski resort community last year. The new train route, coupled with a change of ownership of resort operations and generally increased traffic in the region, has boosted the Winter Park area real estate market.

Valerie Jarvie takes a look at the up-and-coming area and a sample property near what’s now the only ski resort accessible by train from a major airport straight to the slopes in North America. See what you can get in Winter Park, plus updates on the real estate market on SecondShelters.com.

Update 11:33 am: Grabbed a quick chat with Nate Shar with Heritage Auctions who tells me that at least eight people are registered to bid for Leppert’s ski crib, but they expect a few more showing at the actual auction on site. It happens at 2 p.m. No reserve. Mountain Time. Wish you were there? 

Maybe he did it because he wants some of Trump’s real estate prowess to rub off on today’s sale? Maybe he did it because he ran against Ted Cruz and is not a fan, I don’t know. Whatever. Out of all the Republican contenders, the endorsement was a shocking move from the former Dallas mayor.  I’d sure like to ask him why.

But I might just wait until after today’s sale of his magnificent Park City, Utah ski house.

There is no minimum at all, and this home was last listed for $6.2 million. I mean, can you spell DEAL?

As you know, former Dallas mayor Tom Leppert and his wife, Laura, have been trying to shed some properties. First it was their home on Alva Court with that jazzy media room, remember? It was listed by Mary Poss and then Ryan Streiff, the current agent. Asking is still $4,795,000.

But my oh my Park City Utah! I am actually headed that way to check out some more vacation home possibilities, some a little more affordable than a $6.2 million ski-in. ski-out house, though this place could be the best bargain west of the Mississippi come two p.m. Mountain Time.

This is a fantastic piece of property that you can see from the ski lifts. I know exactly where this house is. In fact, if you have ever skied Park City — there are three neighboring resorts, Deer Valley, Park City and Canyons comprising 7300 acres of white powder — this home is near the Dreamcatcher Lift. And it sounds like a dream! (more…)

Former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert and his wife, Laura, like most of us Baby Boomers, have been trying to shed some properties. First it was their home on Alva Court with that jazzy media room, remember? It was listed by Mary Poss and then Ryan Streiff. Think the last asking was $4.7.Tom Leppert Alva CourtWell now it seems they have switched gears and are shedding some Park City, Utah real estate. This is a fantastic piece of property that you can see from the ski lifts. I personally know exactly where this house is. In fact, if you have ever skied Park City — there are three neighboring resorts, Deer Valley, Park City and Canyons comprising 7300 acres of white powder — this home is near the Dreamcatcher Lift.

Seriously, do not miss this story from the impeccable Deidre Woollard over on SecondShelters.com. She tells us about the former Aspen home of Paula Zahn and Richard Cohen in Aspen. It’s a retreat so amazing that it oozes style and magic.

Zahn and Cohen remodeled the home down to the studs in 2003. Interior designer David Easton designed this modern homage to Aspen living, using  his custom furnishings, carpets and fabrics, wall coverings, cabinetry and hardware. Easton is more generally known for his classic style but for this home his style was refined into a contemporary showcase for art and an understated elegance.

And it is breathtaking. See all of the photos of this gorgeous home on SecondShelters.com
