Aspen's $39 Million Lake Home!
In the early years of home construction before the arrival of insulated building materials, it was necessary to put as much framing between the inhabitants of a home and the weather for mere survival. Windows were small, if they existed at all, in protection from winter winds and aggressive wildlife. With improvements in building materials and insulated glass, the changes in architecture that started occurring at the end of World War II have reintroduced us to living behind glass walls. One of the best examples of a modern contemporary home that fulfills the balance between shelter and nature is this contemporary home located on 35 acres west of Telluride, Colorado.
Maximizing staggering views of 14,000-foot snowcapped peaks also reflected in the lake below, the 12,452-square-foot contemporary mansion defines the clean, uncomplicated lines of its genre. Walls of glass are barely visible between the interior, exterior living spaces and valley with mountain peaks looming above. Built using Italian marbles, Indian limestone, exotic granites, bluestone and native rock, the home includes six bedrooms, nine baths, fitness room, indoor and outdoor spas, salon, theater, wine room with floating wine racks, and outdoor fire pits in multiple outdoor terraces. Priced at $31.9 million.
