A Sustainable Mountain Home with an Exquisite Garden



Michael Brands, Mountain Home Photo

Situated in a secluded valley just outside of Aspen, Colorado, this contemporary Old Snowmass home is not your average mountain getaway. With its distinctive design, environmental sensibility, and out-of-this-world outdoor space, the home not only offers elegance and luxury—it also provides a tranquil, Zen-like retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, whether you’re vacationing in the summer or hitting the slopes in the winter.

The home boasts three bedrooms, five baths, and 3,739 square feet of living space.

The entryway leads into an open floor plan—the kitchen, living, and dining spaces flow together intuitively and seamlessly.

Vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows offer breathtaking views of the garden in the foreground and Capitol Creek Valley and the mountains beyond.

The home is surrounded by 360 degrees of mountain views, and expansive windows capture perspectives from every possible vantage point.

Sleek lines, extensive custom detailing, and rich tones create eye-catching and inviting living spaces throughout the home. European details are pepper throughout the home, adding true elegance through fixtures, finishes, and furnishings.

The dining room—flanked by a temperature-controlled wine room and a fully retractable glass door—is a party host’s dream. 

The space transitions into an outdoor patio and entertaining area, with a garden the likes of which you’ve never seen. 

Exquisite flowers, water features, a fire pit, and a French Petanque court equip the backyard with optimal vantage points, perfectly oriented to frame the high peaks of the Elk Mountain Range. Little Elk Creek runs through the property, adding even more life to the dynamic landscape design.

The adjacent master bedroom makes for easy one-level living and an efficient use of space.  A large master bath with soaking tub, steam shower, and walk-in closet offer the highest level of comfort. 

On the upper level, a two-bedroom, two-bath suite with a small sitting/dining area and private patio create a secluded secondary living space, perfect for family or guests. Numerous green features throughout the sustainable home include geothermal heating, solar panels, and energy-efficient building materials.
