Pop singer Rihanna was in Aspen over the weekend to celebrate her 26th birthday in high style...literally. Head to The Cannabist for the low-down on RiRi's incessant Instagramming of the ganja-fueled getaway, but Curbed Ski is here to dish on the 7 bedroom, 18,750 square foot estate Rihanna called home (actually, she kept calling it a cabin). Although occasionally rented out to high-rolling athletes and celebrities vacationing in Aspen, the pricey home is on the market for a whopping $45 million. So what does that get you? Pretty much everything. This is most definitely not a cabin.
Ski-in, ski out?
This ritzy mansion is located on a prime lot at the base of Aspen Mountain (thanks Aspen Spin for the location tip) and just east from the downtown core. Aspen's famed dining, shopping and nightlife scene is within steps…not that you'll ever need to leave.
A 30-foot water wall makes quite the statement in the 40-foot-high entrance foyer.
Pool & hot tub?
Take your pick for a dip indoors in the saline pool or mountainside swim in the stone hot tub outside.
Let's just say the agent should probably change that descriptor to a movie theater, this thing is gigantic.
Personal chef equipped?
The commercial kitchen is appointed to host a soiree any size (which is good, because celebs have quite the entourage) and there's a formal dining room that seats 12.
Ice skating rink?
Why of course, because only peons skate in public at the Silver Circle Ice Rink in town.
This pad has a bowling alley, billiards hall, target range and arcade – all within steps from a full bar. Cheers.
Vertical glass pocket doors open out to an expansive backyard, while guests can entertain or relax during any season in the covered outdoor living room.
There are even two tennis courts. We're telling you, this place has everything.
With a capacity for five vehicles, this wing of the home features a turntable and vertical glass pocket doors. Don't even try to call this a garage.
A 2-bedroom fully loaded guest apartment sits just far enough behind the main house. And yes, it's nicer than most standard single-family abodes.
When the legs are too tired from a day on the slopes, take your pick from two elevators – one of which allows private access to the master suite.
