    so, colorado does this parade of homes event every year. this event allows you to freely tour a specific list of homes in the area. this year, it was free and they had over 10, multi-million dollar homes on the list. so my wife and i headed out last weekend to tour the most expensive of the homes. seriously, how often do you get to tour homes that you could never afford... hell, we couldnt even afford the down payment on some of these homes. for as expensive as these homes were, they were by no means in the mansion category, but it was still fun. several years back, my wife and i got to visit the mansion of a famous baseball player. his home over 10k sq ft and 4 stories it was incredible.

    so anyway, here is the most expensive home that we toured at $6.3 million. it was in littleton, CO and it was 6500 finished sq ft and 1700 unfinished sq ft on 13 acres of land. it only had 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, however. my wife and i thought that a home this large would have had more bedrooms, but it was setup to enterain people.

    here are the pics:


    view away from the house on the private driveway

    view up towards the house from the private driveway

    this is the garage for your toys (boats, RV's, etc). notice the 15 foot garage door. there was also a finished workshop in this garage.
    [​IMG]

    the garage had 15 foot doors on both sides so you could drive your toys through it without having to back it up to get back down the driveway.
    [​IMG]
    4+ car main garage. because of the angles and depth of the garage, y ou probably could fit more in there.
    [​IMG]

    walk way up to the front door
    [​IMG]

    study off to the left of the front door.
    [​IMG]

    the study had a small doorway to the sitting room
    [​IMG]

    the sitting room then led to the masterbed room.
    [​IMG]

    off to the side of the master, was this huge bathroom. on the opposite side of this mirrior and counter, was an identical setup. so there was a "his and hers" area in the bathroom.
    [​IMG]

    whirlpool tub
    [​IMG]

    with a TV
    [​IMG]

    2 person shower with 2 shower heads. however, these "shower heads" had an upper and lower shower head and 6 motorized jets along the length of it.
    [​IMG]

    digital control for the water and jets. you can set the temperature, pressure, jet programming, and more.
    [​IMG]

    walkin closet for the master bedroom. really, it was small considering how big everything else was.
    [​IMG]

    my wife and i couldnt figure out what these racks were for. it rotates down 45 degrees and locks into place. but the stop on the bottom doesnt even touch the floor. i guess you could hang your clothes on them. /shrug
    [​IMG]

    spare bedroom off of the master bedroom
    [​IMG]

    this home had all sorts of closets off at wierd angles. this bedroom had 2 such closets.
    [​IMG]

    sink in the spare bedroom
    [​IMG]

    main living and dining area. the front door is on the far wall to the right. the master bedroom is off to the right.... right of that second pillar. this place looks like a ski lodge.
    [​IMG]

    same room looking backwards.
    [​IMG]

    next area over. this is the kitchen, casual dining, and casual sitting area.
    [​IMG]

    casual sitting area.
    [​IMG]

    kitchen. all appliances are professional grade stuff. at the island, is a small bar/eating area. to the back of the kitchen and to the right was a wine "cellar" area. to the left where that man is walking was a HUGE walkin pantry.
    [​IMG]

    stove/oven
    [​IMG]

    the fridge was huge too.
    [​IMG]

    the counter tops were cool though.
    [​IMG]

    the entire home was wired with these control panels. you could set and program lights, speakers, alarms, and whatever else.
    [​IMG]

    this is the walkin pantry. i have never seen a pantry this large. the pictures dont do it justice.
    [​IMG]

    second half of the pantry around the corner.
    [​IMG]

    huge laundry room. i was actually standing in the mud room while taking this picture.
    [​IMG]

    i wonder what the water and power bill is in this place.
    [​IMG]

    main garage. counter/storage/sink to the left. garage doors to the right.
    [​IMG]

    far side of garage.
    [​IMG]

    view near the main doors.
    [​IMG]

    from the front door, this stairway went down. this view is looking up it, however. this went down into the "basement"
    [​IMG]

    movie theater in the basement.
    [​IMG]

    really comfy sofas.
    [​IMG]

    cool ceilings
    [​IMG]

    pool table and full bar.
    [​IMG]

    setup to be a full bar.
    [​IMG]

    from inside the bar looking back at the theater.
    [​IMG]

    2 smaller bedrooms off the bar. each bedroom had a private bath and a large walkin closet.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    for as expensive and large as this home was, it didnt feel like many people could live there. my wife and i thought that the $1 million homes that we saw were laid out better than this one.



    thanks for looking.

    That thing in the closet is for hanging shirts then it lifts them up high and out of the way.
