In the midst of a red-hot luxury home market in Colorado, towns like Aspen are seeing quite a few pricy homes listed. Perfectly blending a contemporary aesthetic with the mountainous setting, this home is coming on the market with an asking price of $37 million.
The home comes on the market as Aspen’s luxury home market has experienced a boom. Since 2020, many of the people fleeing traditional centers in New York and California turned to mountain states. Between March and October of last year, 46 homes over $10 million were sold in Aspen.
The home is quite large, at around 12,000 square feet. There is plenty of room for entertaining guests with seven total bedrooms. The home’s current owners, Mark Iola and Sarah Clark, love having friends and family over, once having around 200 guests stay at the house over the course of a single winter season.
The house is designed in a contemporary style, with high ceilings and spacious open living spaces. The cool gray glass, concrete, and steel of the design makes for quite a contrast with the mountains and greenery all around the home.
The home was designed for entertaining lots of guests and has the room and amenities to do so in style. From a movie theatre to a recreation room to a bowling alley in the lower level, there’s lots to do around the house. On the outside there is a lounge area by a reflecting pool. The home also sports great views of nearby Independence Pass and Aspen Mountain.
Iola and Clark first purchased the approximately 5-acre property in 2009. They spent around $3.2 million for the land and an additional $12 million constructing the home, which was finished in 2018.
