New, contemporary gem with stunning outdoor amenities

Forget old-school log cabins or ski lodges. Nestled against the dramatic backdrop of Aspen Mountain, 34 Placer Lane is a striking modern marvel that redefines the future of mountain living. Designed with the contemporary buyer in mind, this two-story home is an architectural fusion of glass walls, concrete exteriors, dramatic overhangs, and bold lines. Floor-to-ceiling doors usher residents into the open-concept interiors, where a floating staircase in the entryway leads to the second story.

Built in 2019, the home offers the best in modern living while also retaining the sort of charm one would expect from a mountainside abode. Made for entertaining, the living room shows off a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, glass windows that frame the mountains beyond, and wood beams that strike just the right balance between old and new. The kitchen is equipped with a large center island, state-of-the-art appliances, and an elongated dining table that faces the mountains. Spacious and well-appointed, the bedrooms serve as a cozy and welcome reprieve at the end of a long day. The double master suites are particularly appealing, with deep soaking tubs and sliding glass doors that lead to a private patio with a fireplace. (It’s the perfect place to cozy up by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate during crisp autumn evenings or snowy winter nights.) 

While the interiors are stunning, the outdoor amenities are equally gorgeous. The backyard patio comes with a fireplace, plenty of seating, and an alfresco dining area. The grounds also include a heated swimming pool and fireplace that face the mountains, which makes it an ideal home for both summer and winter living. The residence also comes with an attached garage and recreation room, making it a standout among Aspen luxury homes for sale. The property is currently on the market for $33.5 million.
