Aspen ranch selling for $135M

ASPEN, Colo., Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A Saudi prince's palatial Colorado digs are going for a Rocky Mountain high price of $135 million.

The 95-acre Hala Ranch outside Aspen, which includes a 56,000-square-foot mansion, is owned by Prince Bandar bin Sultan, a former Saudi ambassador to the United States, the Rocky Mountain News reported Thursday.

The job of finding a buyer for the 16-year-old estate goes to Joshua Saslove, a 66-year-old real estate broker who sold his first building 30 years ago for about $60,000. He's sold many properties in the millions but this property takes the cake.

"I've been here more than 100 times, and every time I discover something new about it," he said on a recent visit.

Saslove says more than 1,000 people inquired about a look-see but he's only given a gander 14 prospective buyers, the News said.

But the ranch is not the most expensive property on the market. There's a $155 million property up for grabs in Bozeman, Mont., and a $139 million mansion on sale in Windlesham, England.
