Location: Redstone, Colorado
Nestled between towering mountain slopes near Aspen, the historic 42-room Redstone Castle in Redstone, Colorado is a tantalizing glimpse into the opulent lives of late-19th century industrialists, ski-country edition. Built by John Cleveland Osgood, a coal and steel magnate who established Redstone as a company town, the 1902 Tudor-style manse is marked on the exterior by shingled roofs, tall stone chimneys, and a three-story octagonal turret. The extravagant interiors, once beheld by VIPs like Teddy Roosevelt and John D. Rockefeller, feature original European furniture, large sandstone and marble fireplaces, hand-stenciled linen and ornate lighting fixtures in the entrance hall, plus leather green walls in the library.
If this all looks familiar, it might be because the estate was featured in the 2006 Christopher Nolan film, The Prestige. The 153-acre property, which recently hit the market for $7.5M, also includes a servants quarters, gamekeepers' lodge, carriage house, and greenhouse.
