When choosing a child’s name, parents often speak of how this choice must grow from the playroom to the boardroom. They share a similar wish for raising their family in a home that can transcend the toddler to teenage years, from carpool to college, and from wedding receptions to weekends with the grandkids. This unique family home is available for sale in Summer / Fall 2018. See why it is designed to welcome you home through each stage of life.
This rare find is steps away from Aspen District Schools and the Aspen Rec Center with ski in / ski out to the Five Trees Chairlift accessing the Aspen Highlands Ski Area. Situated in the Glen Eagles neighborhood bordering open-space, the 3/4 acre private lot feels much larger than it actually is, and yet it’s just a quick 3-minute drive to downtown Aspen, to Aspen Country Day School, the Aspen Institute campus and the Music Festival. Hiking and biking trails are right outside the door.
Imagine entertaining here – the unpretentious, craftsman-style architecture features rustic, exposed reclaimed beams, wide-plank hickory floors, and a double-sided wood-burning stone hearth in an open and casually-elegant floor plan. This sumptuous home features radiant heat, wrap-around windows, Venetian plaster wall finishes and Savant premium home automation throughout.
The chef’s dream kitchen is set up to be just as functional for rolling cookie dough as for staging private chefs for entertaining. It is a light-filled room with marble countertops, a six-burner Wolf range with hidden griddle (think pancakes), a deep farmhouse sink, custom cabinetry and comfy bar seating – which we all know is the heart of any cocktail party, as well as where the kids show up when they need to talk about what happened at school today.
The five bedrooms throughout the house are all en-suite with large closets and cornered windows, offering plenty of natural light. The master suite opens to the main patio. The marble bath features his-and-her sinks, a steam shower and a soaking tub (Mom’s daily spa time).
Kids’ rooms are adaptable to changing ages – with attached bathrooms, creative storage, cornered windows and built-in shelving.
Kid’s artwall welcomes you to the children’s wing, with a colorful floor-to-ceiling magnet boards.
The guest master bedroom or office / den is a flexible room, featuring a 3/4 bath, open shelves and access to the large outdoor lawn and play areas.
A full theatre media room – with Mark Levinson / Kaleidescape home theatre system and exceptional electronics – promises that this house is where they’ll all want to hangout. Other amenities include: exercise room, kids’ art studio or overflow room and a separate chillout cottage.
Meanwhile, doors in every room open to multilevel decks and patios so the house lives openly from the outdoors – in. This makes it great for entertaining.
Guests flow outside comfortably to aspen groves, running streams, two ponds, and an outdoor stone fireplace that feels like the camping jam circle meets last-century national park accommodations. Kids and adults alike will love the in-ground trampoline and a ski trail to the Five Trees chairlift accessing Aspen Highlands Ski Area.
