Location: Aspen, Colorado
Price: $18.5 million
Perched right on the slopes of Aspen Highlands, this chic chalet has classic sophistication. “Exquisite architecture, wide-plank white oak floors, custom ironwork and chandeliers, and warm wooden beam work all come together,” said Laurie Laing of Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty. “There are very few single-family homes that are slopeside, ski-in/ski-out, which makes this property really stand out.”
“The home offers phenomenal indoor-outdoor entertaining,” Ms. Laing said, explaining that coordinated doors off the kitchen connect the great room, dining room and library, which all open out onto an expansive terrace, nearly doubling the home’s entertaining space, all on one level. Each room of the home, as well as its numerous stone terraces, offer stunning, long valley views, views of Willow Peak and the Maroon Bells, and the village below.
Although it is a large home, the rooms are very warm and intimate, Ms. Laing said.
“This really is a turnkey ski home,” she said, adding that its location just 100 yards from the slopes also offers unsurpassed accessibility to summer activities like mountain biking and hiking the Highland Bowl. “It’s a perfect year-round home for someone who loves to be outside,” she said.
Built in 2008, this 9,274-square-foot home includes five bedrooms, five full baths, and three half baths.
The home and its furnishings, which are included in the listing price, have recently been updated by designer Jeudi Scannell of Scannell Interiors, who has worked for Ralph Lauren as well as with the Gorsuch family before retiring.
Inside, there’s a 15-seat home theater, a wine room with limestone floors imported from Burgundy, France, that can hold up to 1,500 bottles, and a weight room with adjoining spa.
Outside, the home has numerous terraces with views of the slopes of Aspen Highlands, an outdoor fireplace and sitting area as well as a fire pit, and—its most striking outdoor amenity—an infinity hot tub overlooking perfect slopes and the village below.
Owner privileges include access to the amenities of the Ritz-Carlton Club, Aspen Highlands. Amenities include a pool, fitness center and spa, slopeside heated outdoor pools and the Willow Creek Bistro. The club also offers free transportation to and from both Aspen and the Aspen Airport, each just a five-minute drive away.
