For lovers of John Pawson’s austere, minimalist architecture, here’s another opportunity to own one of his singular properties—this time right here in the States. The Walsh House, located in Telluride’s historic district, was built in 1999 as the British architectural designer’s first U.S. commission and features Pawson’s signature clean lines as well as elements of local mountain architecture.

Measuring 2,369 square feet with four bedrooms and three baths, the simple, gable-roofed structure combines natural materials like stone and wood with concrete and steel and creates a bright and airy space where nothing is extraneous. Situated on two corner lots, the home opens up to the majestic mountains by way of its many windows and skylights and a private deck on the second floor. Verdant landscaping rounds out the property, which is located at 404 East Columbia Avenue and asks $5,995,000.
