Drop Everything and Bid on This 'Garden of Eden' Retreat

Curbed

Previously listed for $10M back in July 2012, this 10,027-square-foot, six-bedroom manse known as Gan Aden (that's hebrew for "Garden of Eden) is now to be auctioned off on February 27. As the grandiose name might suggest, the Castle Rock, Colo. retreat is a veritable mecca of ultra-zen features and some of the craziest amenities ever to be dreamed up. Immediately upon entering the home, for example, guests are met with a temperature-controlled, red leather-floored wine room that the brokerbabble promises "will literally bring people to their knees." Equally earth-moving? The private wing that makes up the master bedroom suite—where an aquarium and personal spa await. Most impressive though, are the "award-winning gardens" that boast a tea house and koi pond beyond in the shape of the Japanese character for "heart." Do take a look at the photos below, then head over to the official listing to watch what might be the most enthusiastic video tour of all time.
