There’s fire, there’s water, there’s a “sky lounge” with views over downtown Aspen — from miles of mountainous panoramas, to seductive terraced patios, and a multi-level water feature that is sure to impress, 19 Little Cloud Trail lives like a modern work of art.

One part Bond, one part five-star resort, it culminates into an epic Rocky Mountain retreat that could be yours for a cool $30 million. Slated for completion by mid-2018, 19 Little Cloud’s reputation, is well, not so little anymore.

“We have just recently brought the home to market and already are receiving a strong response with regard to interest from prospective buyers,” says listing broker Andrew Ernemann of Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty.

We can see why. Its head-turning design is anything but ordinary – ideal for the buyer who wants the ungettable get: downtown living, views, amenities for multi-generation living inside and outside of the home, and perhaps most importantly, incredible outdoor living spaces.

“This home embodies what a huge percentage of Aspen buyers are looking for today,” says Ernemann. It comes complete with six-bedrooms, nine and a half bathrooms, and over 10,600 square feet of luxury living, nestled on a sizable 0.37-acre lot with gated access to the estate’s exclusive, four-property enclave.

Designed by Stan Mathis Architecture with interior furnishings selected by Donna Guerra of Dallas-based DG&A Interior Design, it has all the makings of a modern masterpiece, serenely tucked away at the base of the mountains, just minutes to Silver Queen Gondola at Aspen Mountain Ski Resort.

“Because this property is so well-located it has the opportunity to sell relatively quickly to a buyer who would then be able to make their own design imprint, and it’s certainly possible the home sells after it’s completely finished and furnished because the ‘wow’ factor won’t really be appreciated until that time,” Ernemann adds. He has engaged a firm to create a virtual reality model of the house, expected to launch in the coming weeks.

The next-generation sales tool will be utilized onsite, online, and with virtual reality goggles at Ernemann’s Aspen showroom, The Aspen Property Experience. Until then, these impassioned renderings will have to do.
