This modernist take on a mountain chalet was designed by Herbert Bayer, an eminent member of the Bauhaus art, design and architecture movement. Bayer, at the invitation of industrialist Walter Paepcke, moved to Aspen to design the Aspen Institute, the Aspen Meadows and a handful of residential properties. This home was the first to be designated by the City of Aspen as “modern historic.” The three-bedroom, two-bath cedar-clad, residence exemplifies the fundamentals of the Bauhaus movement--simplicity, openness and efficiency, where form follows function.
Located in the exclusive, quiet Old West End. The home is a ten-minute walk to downtown Aspen and just over a block from the Cross Town Shuttle stop. It is adjacent to Triangle Park and less than a five-minute walk to the Benedict Music Tent, home to the Aspen Music Festival and Harris Hall.
