The residence consists of 4 bedrooms, a home office, and a large family room separate from the main level.  The lower level is well suited for the kids to hang out independently with jack-and-jill attached bedrooms to act as their own little haven with additional “hang out” nooks on the upper and lower levels.  The great room is highlighted by rare, reclaimed chestnut floors and spruce beams that support the vaulted ceiling that warms up the space for that cozy mountain home feel.  The main floor is ideal for hosting a number of guests between the open living room and kitchen that extends through glass sliding doors to the deck for easy accessibility to enjoy the beautiful Colorado weather on the enormous back deck.  The separate owner’s suite on the third floor allows for privacy and a retreat away with an attached office to make use of the peace and quiet.

The accessibility and warm relationship this home has with The Vail Golf & Nordic Club House makes it feel like an extension of the residence. The Vail Golf Club is a public facility and has been recognized by Golf Digest as a "Top 100 Resort Course."   In the wintertime, the Golf Club shifts into a nordic and snowshoeing haven where you can glide directly from 1785 Sunburst onto 17 kilometers of daily-groomed skate and classic track, or snowshoe on 10 kilometers of the scenic cross country trail system. Also located at the Vail Golf & Nordic Clubhouse, is the Grill On The Gore for you to easily walk over to enjoy the specialty cocktails or craft beer selection or enjoy the American comfort food for a meal while taking in the jaw-dropping mountain views that overlook the golf course open space.

Ford Amphitheater hosts several key events throughout the summer.
