Extreme Homes of Colorado: See Aspen's Summit House, at the top of Red Mountain, listing price $65M

ASPEN, Colo. - When you think of Aspen, you might think of skiing, the majestic Maroon Bells, the Historic Hotel Jerome.

And now you can add, the Summit House -- atop Red Mountain -- it's Aspen's most prestigious address.

Prestigious in part because of the views from Aspen Mountain to the Maroon Bells to Buttermilk and beyond. Views you can enjoy from every room in the house.

And the views inside the house are spectacular, too.

Agent Mark Haldeman, with Sotheby's International Realty, gave us a tour, and you need a guide to cover the nearly 17,000-square feet.

"It took him [the owner] five years to build this house from conception to finish," Haldeman said.

The owner paid attention to every detail, from floor to ceiling.

"There is not a flat roof," Haldeman explains. "There are angles everywhere that you look, there is recessed lighting."

The hand-carved wood staircase is just one of many examples of the craftsmanship and detail.

At the bottom of that staircase, two prize possessions.

One of THREE never-before-ridden Ducati's in the home and a seven-foot-tall, stuffed bear.

"The story goes the bear was at an Orvis shop and the owner inquired about it  -- it wasn't for sale. And somehow ended up for sale at the end of the day," Haldeman said.

The bear and the Ducati are on one side of the mancave. Now check out the other side.

"It raises the bar considerably for mancaves," Haldeman said. "Having a craps table in a private home is definitely a first for me without question."

The mancave/playroom features a total of three Ducati's.

The owner hasn't ridden them, because he doesn't want them to lose their value.

The art on the wall? All original albums -- signed original albums.

The Summit House has eleven fireplaces and seven bedrooms.

There's even a separate, private apartment for the owner's personal pilot. It has a kitchen, living area and its own entrance, near the garage.

A garage that didn't look like a garage to me with its shiny floors and fancy cars.

And the master bedroom of the house? It's a must see!

The master bath is a one you won't forget with a side for him and a side for her... and a clear glass shower -- that you can walk through!

And there's even a fireplace in the bathroom. It's in the tub. A tub with an incredible view..

There are his and her closets complete with a chandelier.

The house even has two sets of elevators.

Haldeman said the bar area is the perfect place to end your day -- with a glass of wine and a view of Mt. Sopris.

If you like counters in your kitchen, don't miss this one with multiple islands.

The kitchen has its own fireplace, sitting area, eat-in table and even more of the incredible views.

And there's more!

"This you don't see in every house," Haldeman said as he took us down "Trophy Hall."

The Trophy Hall has a collection of 18 mounted heads.

The one-of-a-kind in a hallway leads to several guest suites.

The home comes completely furnished, but you don't get to keep the artwork, the Ducati's, the trophies or the bear.

The rest can be yours, if the price is right, for $65 million.
