The $14 million home is located in Telluride, Colorado, and was originally listed in late 2009 at $15 million. Sold fully furnished, the three-story property is reportedly set on more than 3 acres and is 8,706 square feet with five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

It was originally built for its previous owner, tech executive Bob Wall. Completed in 2001, the home is outfitted with high-tech luxuries and amenities that include a Finnish-style spa, a heated driveway and motor court to melt snow, and a comprehensive home automation system that can be operated by smartphone from anywhere in the world.

The home also includes a living room with wood burning fireplace, formal dining room, sky-lit eat-in kitchen, and a family room that converts to a screening room with motorized blackout shades and a screen that drops down from the ceiling.

A tempered glass bridge with integrated fiber optic lighting system that was reportedly installed at a cost of $150,000 links a private office with a master suite that includes a custom-crafted, $70,000 jetted tub.

There’s also a wine tunnel (likened to a mining shaft) fitted with rugged wood beams, lantern light fixtures, and a sound system. A 45-foot bridge, installed at a reported cost of $140,000, connects the house to an elevated terrace and a funicular–installed at a cost of almost a quarter million dollars–ferries skiers to the ski runs behind the home.
