Beaver Creek Chateau Penthouse Listed For $8.4 Million (PHOTOS)

A skier's dream penthouse is listed on the market for a whopping $8.4 million. It's location, Beaver Creek, even topped off the Conde Nast voter's choice list of top places to ski and stay in North America this year.

The 6,100 square foot penthouse resides in The Chateau, one of Beaver Creek's premier lodges, and is designed in the same vein as a 17th century European chateau. Structural features include hand-forged wrought iron, limestone, Colorado moss rock and buff colored sandstone, rare butternut wood, marble, and granite. Each room has its own fireplace and bathroom, and unparalleled mountain views visible from any one of the residence's six small decks or the communal wraparound deck.

"The topography of the mountain gives this home a completely unique feature for a penthouse: direct access to the ski slopes via one flight of stairs from the main living level," said Kraig Forbes of Fuller BCV Sotheby's International Realty. "The property was built with the 'pen-ultimate' of comfort and convenience in mind."
