ASPEN REAL ESTATE – The house has five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms, a three-car garage, five fireplaces and all the luxury finishes one would expect in a spec home being marketed to the wealthy second (or third or fourth) homeowner. It sits in a semi-rural setting with an extensive outdoor snowmelt system and no public transportation option for either the future part-time residents or the anticipated small army of help that will likely be needed to keep the place running.On its 6,700-square-foot surface, this mansion would appear to be the poster child of inefficiency.It’s not. In fact, it’s a model of “green” building, the first residence in the Aspen area to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification.
