In Aspen’s booming luxury market, fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger has sold a slopeside mansion for $66.7 million, roughly three months after buying it for nearly $41.3 million.

The ski-in, ski-out home traded in an off-market deal that closed Tuesday, said Steven Shane of Compass, who represented both parties in the transaction. He declined to disclose the identity of the buyer. Mr. Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, bought the Aspen Mountain property in December, property records show.

Mr. Hilfiger declined to comment. The designer, known for his all-American clothing brand, is also a prolific house renovator. Last year, the Hilfigers traded a grand Connecticut estate for a mansion in Palm Beach, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Mr. Shane said the Hilfigers had spent several years looking for a “legacy property” in Aspen to remodel and make their own. “It was never their intention to buy it and sell it,” he said. “It’s difficult to pry a property like this one away, but I think everything has a price.”

Built in 2003, the house is about 665sqm with four bedrooms, Mr. Shane said. It is located on the Little Nell ski trail on Aspen Mountain.

The Hilfigers bought the home from the family of the late Cynthia and George P.Mitchell, property records show. Mr. Mitchell was a Texas real-estate developer and oil baron who pioneered fracking.

Thanks to limited inventory and high demand, Aspen’s luxury market is burgeoning. Last year, a mansion overlooking the tony ski town sold for a record approx. $96.5 million, the Journal reported. A mountaintop mansion recently traded for approx. $54 million.

Mr. Shane said he’s doing an increasing number of off-market deals. “When somebody wants something, they buy it,” he said. “Most often it will be worth more tomorrow than what they paid for it today.”

We reveal the No. 1 areas for price growth in each capital city

Home values across Australia rose by a median 8 percent in FY24, delivering the equivalent of $59,000 in new capital growth to the two-thirds of the population that owns a home, according to CoreLogic data. Investors received total returns of 12.2 percent over the year, including capital gains and gross rental income.

Very tight supply and demand in most capital cities except Melbourne and Hobart was a significant driver of the capital growth, with the smaller and more affordable capital cities of Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide experiencing the most price appreciation over the year. A lack of properties for sale trumped the usual dampening effect of higher interest rates.

As usual, some areas outperformed their city’s median growth benchmark. Here are the top SA3 areas for capital growth in each capital city of Australia in FY24. SA3 areas are large suburbs, or districts incorporating clusters of suburbs, with more than 20,000 residents.
