Located in a private community called Gray Head, about 25 minutes from Telluride Ski Resort, the six-bedroom house measures about 13,000 square feet and has views of the surrounding mountains and canyon. It includes a screening room, gym, wine room, massage room and hair salon. Outside, there is a pond, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, two sunken lounges with fire pits, a hot tub and an in-ground trampoline. The home is being sold furnished, and includes pieces of art like an American flag made of toy soldiers and a 15-foot-high floating sculpture made of Velcro and about 7,000 Swarovski crystals.

The house belongs to retired commodities trader Steve Mawer and his wife, Donna. The Houston-based couple bought the 35-acre parcel in 2009 for $10.1 million, Ms. Mawer said, and have spent the past few years gut-renovating the home.

Ms. Mawer said she oversaw construction and decor, adding features like a floor-to-ceiling granite, steel and glass fireplace, where the flames surround a waterfall. In the massage room, she had a tile mosaic made in the image of Buddha.

The work was recently completed, but the Mawers decided to sell because their youngest child is heading to boarding school in the fall. “We didn’t expect to be empty nesters so soon,” she said. They’ve also put their home in Houston on the market, although they are keeping their Florida home for now.

Ms. Mawer said she enjoyed the process of building and decorating the home and likes the idea of possibly doing it again. “We just like new projects,” she said.

Listing agent Bill Fandel of Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty said most homes in Telluride are traditional mountain style, but contemporary houses are becoming more popular. Mr. Fandel is also listing the actor Tom Cruise’s Telluride home for $59 million.
