...slip a Christie's under the tree!

Hot off the press is the December issue of Christie's International Real Esate magazine and the cover girl is Gan Aden, better known as 31 Albion Place in Castle Pines Village.
The cover photo is a first for Colorado and the central region of the United States, there have only been international and east and west coast estates that have been chosen in past issues.

Gan Aden, is the Colorado Homes and Lifestyle's Home of the Year for 2012 and listed for sale at $10 million.  The inspired architectural design blends modern/contemporary architecture with the natural wooded beauty of the Castle Pines Village landscape.  It sits on a one acre lot that was professionally landscaped by Martin Mosko of MARPA, mixing zen and Asian influenced garden themes with the natural and indigenous plantings of Colorado.  A teahouse and koi pond are visible from the major rooms of the home, offering a tranquil retreat for the homeowner and guests.

The home is the brainchild of Chris Davis and Sarah Brown of Semple Brown Architects and Kevin Collins of Cadre Construction.   Rooms are articulated in subtle zones with eleven foot ceilings and floor to ceiling pocket doors, allowing for the transition between public and private spaces of the home.  The design mixes a contemporary aesthetic with imported antiques.  The spectacular outdoor courtyard boasts a stunning reflection pool and waterfall, engaging the eye immediately upon arrival.

Many of the amenities include a spectacular saltwater aquarium in the master suite, a temperature controlled wine room with red leather flooring, an in-home gym,a professional grade chef's kitchen,  a smart home system with energy efficiency including heated surfaces throughout the interior and exterior.

Gan Aden, Hebrew for the Garden of Eden, is contiguous to 32 Albion which is also available, and is a continuation of the stunning gardens with a complete pool/spa area and separate home/guest home.
