This luxury lodge looks like a millionaire’s treehouse

New York City real estate is all well and good, but sometimes it’s nice to take a peek at what’s available a little further afield.

Over in Colorado for example, this spread is up for grabs for $14.9 million.

Aspen’s North Star Lodge is what you get if you mix two parts treehouse with three parts mansion, and set it on more than seven acres of land.

According to its listing, the 8,836-square-foot home is, “a masterpiece of western ideals”. We’re not entirely sure what that means, but we sure do like the place — even if it does look a little more flammable than we’re typically comfortable with.

The wood-packed home comes with seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, as well as five fireplaces, two hot hubs, over 4,000-square-feet of decking, a three car garage, and a library. Plus its soaring windows capture the impressive views of the surrounding mountains.

The estate is surrounded by the North Star Nature Preserve, Roaring Fork River and Aspen Mountain, and better still, nothing can be built adjacent to or in the view plane of the lodge.

All-in-all, it’s the perfect pad with ski-season fast approaching.

Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
