This stone built, mountain home brings together the pleasures of a meticulously designed estate and the allure of the Rocky Mountains. Plaisance is situated on Red Mountain at the foot of the Hunter Creek Valley and is flanked by Smuggler Mountain. A rushing stream can be heard in the summer evenings. The house faces south over the town of Aspen with panoramic views from Independence Pass to Mount Sopris that catch the early morning light as well as the ever-changing sunsets. The private Red Mountain location offers the splendor of the Rocky Mountains and the convenience of the rich social and cultural core of Aspen only five minutes away. Horses may be grazed in the nearby common area and the beautiful Hunter Creek Trail system is a short walk from the property.  The dry stacked Colorado buff stonework took over two years to complete. Carefully selected materials include mahogany windows, quarter sawn oak floors, Italian porcelain tiles, and a copper roof. Heated stone terraces surround the main level and include a large barbeque area, outdoor fireplace, swim-jet pool and hot tub, and exit to a flat manicured lawn: a rarity on Red Mountain.
All five bedrooms are en suite and provide generous comfortable space for both the owner and guests. The three levels are linked by a floating wood staircase set in a glass and stone tower bathed in natural light.  The home lends itself to both entertaining and intimate family gatherings with a more formal open living area on the main level and a lower level featuring a club room with leather trimmed bar, fully climate controlled wine cellar, and a mahogany lined theater. Relax in the spa that features a custom built Swedish sauna and a Carrera marble steam room. Plaisance features an elaborately designed geothermal heating and cooling system fed by twelve geothermal wells and housed beneath the home.  Plaisance is a one of a kind masterpiece for the most discerning buyer.
