About Bob Bowden
Bob Bowden has been an integral part of the Aspen real estate community for over thirty years and has a proven record of expertise in real estate sales, custom home design and construction, property management and most recently in interior design.
Bob moved to Aspen after he spent 13 years involved in Sencore Inc, the family eletronic manufacturing business. This company was the premier manufacturer of electronic test equipment for the audio/video service fields. Bob executed the movement of the operation to Sioux Falls, South Dakota which paved the way for other manufacturing companies such as Gateway Computers to relocate to what was soon to be known as the Silicon Prairie.
Bob moved to Aspen in 1984 and immediately made a mark with the most happening night club in town the Double Diamond. Bob continued to become an active member in the Aspen community by investing in several real estate opportunities and securing his real estate license.
Very quickly in Bob’s real broker career he realized home owners were looking for homes that were more special than what was available. They wanted homes that had a higher attention to detail, more amenities, homes that the very nature of the lifestyle they provided enriched ones life in Aspen. Bob started by becoming a general contractor and building 15,000 square feet spec homes that were quickly snatched up by world rich and famous including royalty from some of the richest countries in the world. Building on the success of these early ventures Bob continued to escalate the scale and luxury of these Aspen home projects culminating in this magnificent estate on Sunnyside Ridge.
In real estate sales Bob earned a reputation for record sales and for getting sellers up to thirty percent above the average market price. This amounts to real dollars in the pockets of his clients. Bob also has an in-depth understanding of some of the tricky pathways one must navigate in Aspen and has succeeded on deals where others have failed.
Bob has continued to focus on the design and build process and again seeing a short coming in the custom home area he opened the Aspen Design Room. ADR as it is known locally is offer complete interior Design services and extraordinary home furnishing opportunities. This 3000 sf furniture showroom offers exclusive lines to both the trade and public.

Designing his homes from the inside out has been a process that has worked exceedingly well for Bob’s clients and on his spec homes. This combined with an natural talent and dedication to excellence that he and his team are thrilled to share this with you.
