$11,950,000 | Partially Furnished
You can have it all in this location on the Vail Golf Course. One of the last streets before the Vail Golf Course turns into Vail Village with just over a half mile to the slopes via Golden Peak. The home’s stunning cathedral ceilings with hand-hewn trusses and beams that open to grand spaces framed with the refined finishes of plaster, stone, marble, and granite are found in only the finest residences in ski country. But what demands to be the main focal point is the majestic Gore Range views seen through floor to ceiling windows when you walk into the great room. This is hands down the best location with jaw-dropping views of the Gore Range. The dramatic stone fireplace and two warm seating areas set the perfect mood and somehow manage to be both grand and unpretentious all at the same time.With the 4th Fairway on the North side of the house and open space on the South, this location provides a sense of privacy and seclusion that is unheard of in a home this close to Vail Village.
The previous owners purchased the 4.25 acres south of the estate and donated it to the Town of Vail as open space to ensure the estate’s pristine and private beauty. Although the location is so close to Vail Village that it is a perfect summertime stroll, it is also located on the free shuttle and has only a two minute driving time before being dropped right at the ski slopes. You don’t even need to wait for the bus to arrive as the real-time smartphone app can show you the bus as it makes it way down the street so that you can arrive at the perfect time.
This home truly has the best of all worlds with privacy, a wonderful neighborhood feel, and a nice flat grade for walking or biking into town or to Ford Park to take in a Bravo Concert or one of the other summertime events. This flat grade provides an easy bike ride that even the youngest of children can manage with ease. People that consider locations such as Beaver Dam Road, Forest Road, and Rockledge Road should not forget that some of the closest and best locations are on the edge of the Vail Golf Course, just around the corner from Vail Village and boast more sun, a free shuttle location and nice flat grade. There are so few single family homes that ever sell in this part of the Vail Golf Course making this an even greater opportunity.
In addition to the stunning views of the Gore Range, the outdoor focal point of the home is the heated patio with an in-ground jacuzzi, gas fire pit, and outdoor kitchen all surrounded by mature and lush landscaping. There is also a huge heated patio balcony off the main living room that overlooks the Gore Range and is ideal for taking in the Alpenglow along the Gore Range.
The master bedroom is an elegant room with it’s own sitting area around the fireplace, a private office and one of the most luxurious and graceful master bathrooms in the Vail Valley. With honed stone floors, a huge glass shower with skylight, a soaking tub and dual vanities, this room is as inviting as any and is the perfect retreat.
There are four large en-suite guest bedrooms in this residence with their own separate entrance to the outdoor patio and jacuzzi area. All guests will feel equally important in these lovely and spacious suites.
