On September 29, 2016, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers, Josh McKinley, Josh Behr, and Tye Stockton hosted, An Evening of Taste, at Boulder’s historic Ashlawn Estate and polo field which is currently listed for sale at $22.2M. The estate, nestled at the base of Haystack Mountain, is conveniently located nearby to the city of Boulder, and is an architectural feat of breathtaking proportions. Luxury amenities include an FAA approved runway, state-of-the-art theater, bar and pool room; a wine cellar; an outdoor pool and spa area, equipped with kitchens; and a highly secure flight simulator. In addition to the main home, the property also boasts a guesthouse, equestrian barn, a barn apartment, bunk house, and a polo field.
“With its unique assemblage of 118 acres, located just minutes from downtown Boulder hosting a plantation style estate complete with polo fields and world class stables, Ashlawn is the most significant piece of real estate along the front range,” said LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker, Josh McKinley.
The exclusive property preview event showcased the luxury amenities of the estate in an unparalleled setting. Guests were invited to walk the grounds of the estate and enjoy tastes from Silver Oak winery. Aston Martin vehicles flanked the grand entryway of the home, and a live classical quintet played music alongside the in-ground pool. An added highlight was two helicopters touching down on-site, offering several patrons an aerial view of the grounds.
“The Ashlawn Estate is truly a masterpiece of luxury, where one can feel comfortable at home relaxing by themselves or entertaining hundreds of guests either on the grounds or hosting a polo match,” said Stockton. “From the FAA approved runway, the championship polo fields, home theater, outdoor kitchen, pool and spa area- and even a flight simulator, the breadth of the property exudes and compliments the beauty and playfulness of the Colorado foothills. Truly a property not to be missed.”
Named after a historical property in Nashville, Tennessee, the Ashlawn estate spans 118 acres of manicured fields lined by century-old trees, and is comprised of a main residence, guest house, equestrian barn area, and Argentinian-inspired polo field.
It took over three years to build the main residence of the estate which was designed by architect, Eric J. Smith, of Eric Smith Architecture, P.C. The interior of the home was designed by Romanza Interior Design out of Naples, Florida. The main house of the home was built by Harrington Stanko Construction, with founder, Tim Harrington, responsible for the build of the guest house/barn.
The main residence includes 5 bedrooms and 10 baths totaling over 13,000 square feet of livable space and a 4-car garage.
The outdoor pool area features his and her bathrooms, an Argentine style grill, Pennsylvania blue stone counter tops, a custom built office that looks out over the pool, and the finest outdoor kitchens to further accentuate the home as the perfect setting for entertaining.

Unique features of the home include a full service elevator and hidden safe room, a custom, mahogany-paneled library, intricately painted tin ceilings, and a wine cellar with custom details. The polo field is a designated airport CO23 code in the FAA, making the estate ideal for an aviator.
