This $9M Colorado Mansion Has a Telescope Observatory

Perfect for the gentleman scholar with an astronomical bank statement, this Colorado mansion comes outfitted for an array of pet projects. On a typical Saturday, the next proud owner can measure growth rates in the indoor tropical greenhouse, adjust a fleet of solar panels and a geothermal cooling system via iPad, and do a little stargazing in the telescope observatory before repairing to the den with A Brief History of Time and a snifter of cognac. Asking $9M for 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms spread out over 10,561 square feet, this hobby-ready haven looks best when it's at its most utilitarian, with plenty of exposed steel and stone. The place also has access to 34 acres of lush aspen wilderness between the Lake Creek and Squaw Creek valleys, for when the rustic interior inspires an off-the-cuff bout of naturalism. Like the idea of whiling away the hours taking field notes? Have a look below:
