Location: Telluride, Colo.
The Skinny: This angular mixed-use shed by New York architect Henry Smith-Miller set off a bombshell of controversy upon its construction in Telluride's historic district in 1994, though like many maligned buildings its reputation has grown through the years. Sitting cheek to jowl with a bevy of historic Victorian homes, this 7,000-square-foot cube pointedly eschewed emulating the district's architectural character, turning a cold, steel-siding shoulder toward gables and white picket fences and taking its cues from the resort town's mining roots. The home is actually two luxury condos and a lower-level commercial space, with the upper residence featuring a glass-and-steel penthouse and roof garden with spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains. Both units' interiors feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows and spacious, high-ceilinged rooms, with maple floors and paneling. There are six bedrooms and seven bathrooms total, plus parking for six cars (ice scraper definitely required, as only one space is covered). Located within walking distance of the Gondola and Lift 8, it's perfect for ski buffs, and is asking $4.375M.
