About the Property
This stunning six bedroom residence is clearly on one of the best homesites in all of the four Cordillera areas. With incredible, sweeping views of the Gore Range across the signature 13 hole fairway on the Cordillera Mountain Golf Course and also partially nestled in a tranquil aspen grove, the home offers exceptional privacy. The home encompasses five bedrooms plus the separate entranced caretaker/ mother-in-law suite and home office, which would also be a great rental or a guest suite. Each bedroom is en-suite with direct outdoor access for the occupants to take in the beauty of the outdoors from the privacy of their own suite.
This home is built with impeccable quality noticeable from the moment you enter. There is a timeless luxury feel with floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious bedrooms, 3 stone fireplaces and custom upgrades throughout. Cozy up in the family room with a cocktail from the wet bar or wine from your temperature controlled wine room. The outdoor spaces in this residence are nothing less than spectacular. From covered spaces to exposed, there is something for every time of day and whatever the weather. Enjoy sitting by the outdoor gas fireplace or gather around the wood burning fire pit for s’mores with the family. The main outdoor living spaces all overlook a serene water feature that cascades down the hillside with sounds that make every stress in life drift away. Walk outside for late evening strolls along the golf fairway in the summer or go sledding or cross country skiing right out your back door. Cordillera grooms a trail that passes nearby during the winter season.
This home is exceptional in location, quality and style and will be enjoyed for decades to come!

Cordillera Information & Links:
Cordillera is a gated, country club community composed of three world class golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio and Colorado native Hale Irwin, and a par 3 short course. Offering a vibrant social life, there are several options for memberships. Additionally, the Cordillera amenities include workout facilities, lap pool, sauna/steam rooms, tennis and pickleball courts, equestrian center, hiking/biking and snowshoe trails, and trout fishing ponds.
The four distinct, gated neighborhoods are The Divide, The Ranch, The Summit, and The Valley Club covering 7,000 acres. Located on the north hillsides are all neighborhoods but The Valley Club, which can be found on the south side of the Valley.
However, no matter the location, abundant wildlife grazes throughout the open space. Despite being an elite golfing community, there are many full-time residents as well as second homeowners that spend months or seasons at a time due to the diverse activities year-round. The pristine nature of the Cordillera land is accented by picturesque views of valleys and mountain peaks. In addition to that, the homeowners in Cordillera are able to get more for their money in terms of both land and home as well as privacy. The price per square foot is significantly lower than if you were to purchase directly in the villages of Vail or Beaver Creek. Thus for the cost, Cordillera offers significant value with larger lots accompanied by greater size in terms of square footage for residences.
With a close proximity to both Vail and Beaver Creek, Cordillera agrees with the lifestyle of one who wants pristine nature and vast land but also likes close proximity to all the amenities of the Vail Valley. The Cordillera Club and community experience is unlike any other in Colorado.
