A Vail Modern with Tons of Va-Va-Voom Wants $45M

The experience of being in the mountains doesn’t have to be luxurious and posh, it can be all about simplicity and quiet. That’s how Henry Thoreau lived. However, for buyers with immeasurable pockets looking for a mountain home exuding opulence, this $45 million home in Vail, Colorado must be it.

If Elsa from Frozen lived in the 21st century, the glass palace she created may have looked exactly like Apogee House. Secluded and as fine as crystal, it has floor-to-ceiling windows, from which the peaks and pines in the distance become part of the home’s décor.

Though its modern design is unmatched, the amenities are what really set it apart. There’s a 75-foot-long glass-bottom pool that may feel like swimming in an aquarium. Inside, a spa with waterfalls will quench anyone’s thirst for wellness. Cars get regal treatment, too, with a top-of-the-line car rinse as well as a four-car garage and four outdoor parking spaces.

When stairs seem overwhelming after hitting the slopes, one can use the freestanding elevator to travel through the 8,801-square-foot house. Unwind in one of the six bedrooms for a much-needed slumber, or enjoy a drink on the heated decks. After all, there is 6,500-square-feet outdoor space to bask in, holding alluring fire pits and hidden gardens.

Alitza Vagenknechtova of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
