Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s classic Walden, this spacious home with an Old West feel is designed by distinguished architect Annabelle Selldorf. Surrounded by forest landscapes with mesmerizing views of the natural world all around, this spacious retreat is a haven for spiritual discovery.
Although the 10,515-square-foot home is far from a quaint, cozy cabin, it blends in with nature to retain the feel of a snug retreat for a rugged outdoorsman. With seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a glass-encased cabana gym, and floor-to-ceiling windows, living here will feel like you’re part of a simpler time. The beautifully constructed Walden House is built with locally sourced beetle-kill pine, copper shingles, and Anasazi sliver stone. It sits on roughly 70 acres accompanied by a serene pond where you can absorb some of Thoreau’s thoughts and ideas. Around the property is a nine-mile network of private and semi-private trails, several shops and restaurants, and famous ski destinations Vail and Beaver Creek. This retreat in Edwards, Colorado is looking for the right homeowner.
