Description of the Aspen vacation home rental
"EXQUISITE and SEXY" best describes this remarkable custom home:

The owners spent 6 years of pain staking detail to create this six-bedroom custom home at the prestigious Maroon Creek Club in the city of Aspen. Completed in 2008, this timeless home is comfortable and intimate both with its scale and the well thought-out floor plan.

The main level allows for entertaining and family gatherings in the living, dining, den, kitchen, and family rooms that open to the large "outdoor room" featuring gardens, stone terraces, large reflecting pool, hot tub, outdoor grill and an outdoor movie theater with views looking up at the ski runs of Tiehack and Aspen Mountain.

The finishes and attention to detail are apparent at every turn - exotic woods, beautiful slab stone surfaces, including semi-precious "Labradorite" in the kitchen and master bath, also high-end systems and rich and luxe decor and finishes. The ''FLOATING'' staircase, each tread a solid wood timber, took 2 years to build and is a piece of art. This stair leads to the private master suite.

There is a yoga studio/ spa, wine room, and large movie theater which serves as an additional gathering spots for family and friends.

The SIX bedrooms are each en-suite. All with tubs and showers: 1. The 3rd level master (king bed), 2. the 2nd level master (queen bed), 3. entry level guest (king bed), 4. guest (king bed), 5. help's room with kitchenette (queen bed) and 6. bunk room (2 queen beds, two twin beds). The large stadium theater can act as another sleeping area, with the adjacent spa as a full bath.

The home was offered for sale at $19,900,000 at one point. Explore the images and see why.
