In Aspen’s coveted West End, 725 W. Smuggler Street offers all the magic of the ski resort under one roof. A portion of the home was originally built in 1888 (although it’s not part of the protected landmarks/historic registry), and it was extensively remodeled, rebuilt last year to incorporate an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, wide-plank white oak floors, custom gas fireplace, and marbled wet bar. A floating staircase leads to a full-floor private suite with two full bathrooms. Downstairs, three en suite bedrooms share a seating area with wet bar as well as an additional laundry room. A snowmelt patio, outdoor kitchen and Tesla solar storage are just a few of the touches that make this property unique.

Sliding doors integrate indoor and outdoor living, seamlessly blending the patio with the kitchen and living room. Extraordinary natural light and mountain views can be enjoyed from every vantage point; the famed Aspen Institute and the acclaimed Aspen Music Festival are just steps outside your door. Brittanie Rockhill of Douglas Elliman has the listing, asking $21,600,000.
