In the heart of Colorado ski country — land of alpine homes with great big logs and hulking fireplaces — along comes this streamlined glass house with vistas that stretch on forever.
Perched above Aspen, overlooking the mountains and several world-class ski resorts, this sleek contemporary home is on the market for $13.9 million.
"This is so super-clean that it tends to be a blank canvas for anything you'd want to design," said listing agent Jill Shore of Douglas Elliman.
The six-bedroom home and one-bedroom guesthouse span 9,500 square feet, with eight baths, white oak floors and triple-pane windows to keep out the noise while letting in 270-degree views from sunrise to sunset.
The double-sided fireplace makes an elegant statement amid soaring ceilings and walls of glass, and the bedrooms open onto their own patios and decks for maximum exposure to nature.
Lest you be without a view on your way in or out, a glass tunnel connects the four-car garage to the house.
