Hush, Hush & On the QT: The Perfect Pre-DNC Party House
Are you looking for a unique place to hold a pre-Democratic National Convention party? Have we got a place for you in Aspen.
Consider this 95-acre Starwood Ranch property that includes a nearly 56,000-square-foot mansion and several smaller homes and buildings. That’s about the size of a super Wal-Mart with a Denny’s Restaurant and Famous Footwear in the parking lot. The main home is larger than the White House and includes 16 bathrooms (no waiting lines,) 15 bedrooms, stables for the donkeys, a tennis court, an indoor swimming pool, outdoor water features and many other amenities including ponds, trails and buildings for staff housing. This layout would even appease the convention delegation from California.
For those who have been within the compound, they describe this modern castle as one of the most “spectacular residences in the world,” with its manicured gardens and majestic view of the Roaring Fork Valley. A day up here and it would be “screw the convention; I’ll watch it on C-Span.”
The only problem is, you would have to put down about $13.5 million and make $710,000 a month payment on this $135 million dollar estate. Current owner is Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, the former Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S.
This luxury property, considered the most expensive single-family residence in the nation if not the world, is known as “Hala”, Arabic for “welcome.”
Imagine the headlines: “Democrats give a gala at Hala” or “Conventioneers have a Hala a time in Aspen.”
