This not-so-humble abode is located in one of Colorado’s most famous skiing meccas – Vail Village.

A recent Curbed.com article described it as an “overwrought Austrian ski chalet”.  Oh yes, this place is INSANE!

And House Crazy Sarah loves a good crazy house – especially when no expense (or pattern) is spared!

Such is the case with this frenetically decorated 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom marvel.

This big boy is for sale for the big boy price of  $25,000,000.

It could be described as ‘Vegas inspired’. Or perhaps the decorator was on some type of marathon sleep-deprived illicit substance binge. Or, had just finished watching Clockwork Orange.

But I suspect the truth is that the owners really love this place.

I get the feeling that the house loves the owners right back.

Fun features of this property include a private tram with direct ski-hill access, a warming hut, cedar lined wine closet, sunken wet bar, well equipped game room, and chef’s kitchen with Wolf & Sub-Zero appliances.

You have to admire people who possess obscene amounts of money and are not bashful about indulging in it.

It’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve.  :)
