This well appointed home is available for rent on Aspen’s exclusive Ridge of Red Mountain. Perched alongside a mountain stream, the house blends with its surroundings of large glacier-deposited boulders, pines, aspens, cottonwoods, and service-berries, and is almost invisible from the outside as it is composed of those very same materials. Extremely large operable panels of insulated glass blur the boundaries between inside and out.
Designed by world renown architect Chad Oppenheim, this home plays homage to the Japanese sensibilities of wabi-sabi. Clad in reclaimed regional wood, local stone, patinated copper, and steel, the home is intended to merge effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings of forest, stream and mountain.
The inside of the house is cozy and intimate. Living room with wood burning fire place, library, multiple indoor and outdoor dining areas, family media room with wood burning fire place and mud room are included in this house.
