This is a rare opportunity for year-round rental of a modernist architectural chalet near Triangle Park in Aspen's lovely Old West End. Filled with warm light and works of art, this three bedroom, two bath home is now on the market for the first time.The airy and bright split-level half-duplex features a large open upstairs kitchen-living-dining area with designer furnishings. In addition to sliding glass doors opening onto spacious decks on two sides of the property, clerestory windows near the peak of the high sloping ceilings keep the living space light and bright. Built-ins and closets throughout both the upper and lower levels offer ample storage and counter space for displaying sculpture, books, and other collectibles.The cedar clad home, designed by Aspen architect Jim Weaver in a complementary style with the Herbert Bayer home next door, adheres to the tenets of Bauhaus architecture: it favors openness and efficiency with a pleasing balance of form and function.The downstairs, featuring east-facing windows, is partly below grade to take advantage of natural heating and cooling. On this level are three bedrooms, two of which have sliding glass doors onto a sheltered patio that adjoins a lovely shared yard. The master bedroom features a queen bed and an en suite bathroom and built-ins. The middle bedroom has twin beds which can easily convert to a king. And the third bedroom is set up as an office with two large desks, built in cabinetry, and a twin daybed that can be opened into a king. The second bath, several steps down from the bedroom level (with great wine storage under the stairs), features a tub and shower. There is a hot tub on the lower patio, just steps from the master bedroom. The path to the hot tub is clear of snow due to snowmelt heating in the pathway.The larger upstairs deck features built-in benches and two tables for four (with room for another table for six) and is a delightful space for entertaining. Stairs lead down to a tree-lined yard.This is a highly desirable home for long term lessors who want quick, easy access to the center of town (under a 10 minute walk), the Benedict Music Tent (under 5 minutes), and who value the privacy and quiet of Aspen's exclusive West End.
