Luxury Living: Mountain homes

From the Mantiqueira Mountains in Brazil to the Whitefish Range in Montana, 5 homes with breathtaking vistas and sweet-smelling air — all from Christie’s International Real Estate

Located in the Castle Creek Valley just minutes from downtown Aspen, this AIA Award-winning residence is the ultimate mountain and river showpiece. The 8,302-square-foot custom-built residence with floor-to-ceiling windows and five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and one half bathroom, sits on over six private acres and captures outstanding mountain and surrounding river views. This rare property also features extensive Castle Creek river frontage. 

The Grid House (also pictured top) is an enchanting eco home set within a private 42-acre area of rainforest in Brazil’s Mantiqueira Mountains. Designed to converge with the natural landscape, the stunning modular home is distinguished by open indoor-outdoor living spaces sourced from native wood and stone, and walls of glass that frame incredible panoramas of the mountains and forest. The main house is complemented by a leisure pavilion, staff quarters, and tropical gardens with a water mirror.

This beautiful mountain home commands 15 ridgetop acres with exceptional views encompassing Glacier National Park, the Whitefish Range including the ski resort, and Whitefish Lake. The dramatic entrance leads to a great room with curved chord timber trusses, a stately fireplace with detailed stone and ironwork, and architectural lighting. Off the entrance is an arched hallway and a master suite. The landscaped grounds border a conservation easement and endless miles of recreation trails, within a 15-minute drive of downtown Whitefish and Whitefish Mountain Resort.
