Lot three was the first choice on Thunderbowl Lane and a favorite of Aspen Highlands developer Jerry Hines with it's top of Thunderbowl location and world class ski-in/ski-out access. This is the Ultimate Aspen luxury ski and snowboard property. The home boasts spectacular views overlooking the lower Maroon Creek Valley and the upper Roaring Fork Valley. Low maintenance, naturally tiered landscaping, along with custom ironworks, sculpted by Meyers and Co. provide a welcoming entrance. A snow melted drive provides private, hassle free living in a Winter Paradise. The house was designed by award winning Colorado architect Larry Yaw with his signature angles and curves. This mountain estate is accented by raw elements including large wood beams, custom ironwork, etched Crystal River Glass, and Colorado quarried farmers stone. Respected and renowned local builder David Lambert Construction completed this six bedroom, six and a half bath warm and comfortable mountain home in 2002 with exquisite plaster and chestnut finishes. Spectacular trusses and three retractable chandeliers highlight the great room. The stone fireplace separates the great room from a more formal dining area. The main level opens to an expansive outdoor stone patio area featuring a large fire pit and Jacuzzi with walk-out ski access. Big views of West Willow Peak and Thunderbowl are enjoyed from the east facing windows of the great room and dinning room. A family of "whimsical mice" welcomes you home atop the entrance stairs; one of the many characteristics that makes it obvious it is a custom home designed by a daughter/father team. A guest master suite above the one car garage, complete with office, large walk-in closet and bar provides easy access off the entrance staircase for guests. The cozy library/den with gas fireplace and wood paneling are a perfect reading and relaxing location. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large laundry utility room with double washer/dryers. A private elevator connects the main floor to the lower and upper levels. The Private Master Suite off the south side enjoys spectacular light and views of Highlands from the lounge area complete with gas fireplace and decks going from mountainside to city side. Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams create a spacious and comfortable space. The upper level includes two additional en suite bedrooms, one with a children's loft accessed via a ladder in the closet. The east patio, easily accessed off the kitchen, is an ideal barbecuing location with a favorite spot to enjoy early easterly light. Trees and a circulating creek separate neighbor to the east with great privacy. An abundance of storage exists behind the one car garage. Radiant heat is throughout the main level as well as forced air with humidification system as supplemental heat and air conditioning. The lower level of the home includes plenty of storage space, a large family room, an exercise room, a bunk room, workshop and large mudroom which could potentially be converted to a large theater. An ADU (guest/nanny suite) with separate entrance can be accessed from the side of the oversized two-car garage. Take advantage of the Ritz Carlton amenities at Highlands base village including pool, Jacuzzi, work out facilities, and limited shuttle service. This is an immaculate home with château like finishes located in a recreational winter paradise.
