An Aspen Mountain Retreat with Spectacular Views Lists for a Steep $17M

Winter is coming, and just in time for perfect ski conditions, this rad circa-1987 home in Aspen, Colorado is up for sale. Perched on a mountainside with a steep $16.95 million ask, the picturesque landscape and noteworthy architecture accompany a whirlwind of amenities for a resort-like retreat.

Sitting on a two-acre lot, the 5 bedroom and 5.5 bath house is spread over 11,159 square feet. An open floor plan pairs brilliantly with sky-high ceilings for an airy yet majestic atmosphere. And, nowhere is that as palpable as in the great room with a delightful sunken living space. Walls of glass surround you here, crawling up the ceilings as well, for unparalleled vistas of the surrounding natural beauty. From Independence Pass to Mount Sopris, the 180-degree scenery is something out of a dream.

While in some places, the home may need some cosmetic updating, its circa-1980s architecture provides a fun and sleek canvas to decorate or reimagine. Currently, various wood stains and carpeting subtly create a retro and nostalgic feel.

Ideal for après-ski, the home offers a range of outdoor entertaining areas, but also comes with a gym, indoor pool, wine room, office, and a three-car garage. Located at the end of the cul-de-sac in Aspen’s Starwood neighborhood, privacy is of no concern. The breathtaking views create a sense of freedom within the calming reassurance of the gated community.

Whether it be summer wildflowers or powdered peaks in the distance, this location will never grow old. Steven Shane of Compass holds the listing.
