The biggest home in the richest town in America

It has a population of just 6,680 people, but this is no "small, quaint" town. Aspen, Colo., is an ultraexclusive get away for some of the wealthiest people on the planet.

In this ski town, you will find the super rich spending millions of dollars on properties they will use as their second or third home, as a "get-away" retreat.

CNBC cameras went on a private, VIP tour of the biggest home in the richest town in America called "The Ski Home."

It's a compound that's over 21,000 square feet located on 7 acres of Aspen Mountain. Owner and developer Leathem Stearn tells CNBC: "It's really a lifestyle compound. It captures the essence of Aspen where you can have all activities right at your fingertips."

And by activities, Stearn means you can literally ski on and off the mountain, right outside your front door. This ultramodern home features a 54-foot pool and hot tub that also acts as the home's humidifier. "Humidity is a real problem here because there is no humidity. It brings us up to about 30 percent humidity… it's our lap pool, hot tub and our humidifier."

And of course, you can't forget about the lazy Susan in the garage where "lazy" drivers can back their car into place without having to go into reverse. "The garage opens up and you drive in and when you get in you'll land on the turntable there, it spins the car around until you get to where you want and you just back it into place."

When CNBC interviewed the listing agent back in March, he revealed the multimillion-dollar price tag, "$45 million and a value. A value at $45 million." The asking price has since been reduced to $39,750,000.

Meet "The Ski Home" owner and developer and tour this megahome in CNBC's new primetime series, "Secret Lives of the Super Rich" premiering Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
