An Elevated Aspen Home With Family in Mind

Photos by Brands & Kribbs

Adjacent to downtown with views of Aspen Mountain, Independence Pass, and the surrounding mountains, this gorgeous three-level home was crafted for family bonding, entertaining guests, and enjoying both the rustic vistas and the attractions of Aspen, Colorado.

To capture the surrounding views, the highest-traffic spaces—the great room, dining room, and kitchen with hearth—are all located on the top floor, affording vantage points of the mountains and encouraging its luxury-treehouse vibe.

On the home’s entry level sits the foyer, a powder room, the master suite, and the garage.

The lower-level living room

Cozied up on the lower level are the home’s three additional guest suites, entertainment room, and laundry.

The upper-level great room

Throughout the home’s unique layout, earthy materials like wood and stone play into the nature-inspired views. French white oak planks are seen on the floors and walls, while Lucia Azula Flamed Blue Limestone tile paves the entryway, powder room, and mudroom.

The dining room

Clean, contemporary lines are a ubiquitous theme, blending seamlessly with a variety of neutral color palettes.

The clean lines of the kitchen

The kitchen is encased with cabinets crafted from Paioli Woodwork’s Cerused White Oak and adorned with a white granite backsplash and countertops.

The kitchen's sitting nook and hearth

The master bedroom’s light blues, tans, and textured fabrics give it depth while still remaining light and airy.

The vanities of the master bath

White granite countertops, Calcutta tile, a steam shower, and an inviting Chelsea tub comprise the spacious master bath.
