Sitting at the top of Red Mountain in Aspen, The Summit House is on the market for $65 million. This makes it the most expensive home for sale on what has been dubbed “Billionaire Mountain.”
The 18,000-square-foot home has seven bedrooms, seven full and four half baths and floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing views of the Rockies. The home sits on six acres of some of the highest elevation private property on the mountain.
“No one can build above this lot, as that land belongs to [Bureau of Land Management] and National Forest Service,” said Mark Haldeman, the property’s listing agent.
But the home’s location is not the only feature of that home making it unique in the city of Aspen. New laws in Pitkin County, where the home is located, mean that the a home of this size can no longer be built, Haldeman said.

Vail broke the $200 lift ticket barrier during the holidays last winter. Aspen hasn’t topped the $200 mark yet, but both resorts are raising their peak prices this season.
