I know, I know, it’s another “modern mountain mansion.” I promise I’ll have more ludicrously luxurious log cabins soon.
But. Seriously. This house is insane.
It has a covered dog run, and the 4-car garage and driveway are both heated. If that’s how well the pets and the cars are treated, can you imagine how the humans live?
They live in 13,000 square feet of vaulted ceilings, brushed concrete accents, steel details, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The idea is to blend in with the forest surroundings by opening up the house to all-encompassing views. Of course, the indoor greenhouse doesn’t hurt when it comes to incorporating nature into the house; your struggling potted petunias will think they’ve died and gone to heaven. Five bedrooms and six bathrooms of the modern blending with the mountain are sure to make you feel like you’re living at one with Mother Earth.
But what blows my mind is the pool (what? This place has a wine cellar, dumbwaiter, and elevator; you think it isn’t going to have a pool?). The 25-meter lap pool is glass-enclosed and “cantilevers over a stream,” extending out into the surrounding forest to give the impression of swimming amongst the trees.
Sure beats freezing in a snow-melt stream.
Cough up $9.8 million and ring Sotheby’s.
