This Doozy of a Ski Retreat is Vermont's Priciest Home

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Stowe, Vermont
Price: $12,500,000
The Skinny: Zillow has updated its list of most expensive homes for sale in every state. Time to throw a dart and see what kind of luxury residential bonanza it lands on. The priciest home in Vermont takes the shape of a red-painted silo plopped between two gabled wings. It was built in 1991, and was acquired in 2001 and "extensively renovated," according to the listing, by the current owners, who spend most of their time in Florida. The immediate grounds (part of 85 acres) are stuffed to the gills with amenities: a three-bedroom caretaker's cottage, a garage with a small apartment, a "car wash building," a shooting range, a miniature golf course, and a tennis court.

There's also a kind of cool, detached studio, which has an underground art gallery, and is accessed via a suspended bridge over a mountain stream. No, you didn't have to ask if there was giant chess set. Ditto a picnic area with an Airstream trailer, and a mailbox (Update: or a birdhouse?) in the shape of the 8,000-square-foot main house. The asking price is $12.5M.
