Learn more about Mountain Star
The gated community of Mountain Star is known for its big views and secluded wooded settings. It is one of the finest residential areas in the Vail Valley for those that seek a private mountain retreat that is centrally located for quick and easy access to all the Vail Valley has to offer. Additionally, Mountain Star is highly coveted for being on the North side (“sunny side”) of the Valley while still maintaining rolling meadows with wildflowers and dense aspen forests and spruce trees versus the typical dry land sage terrain. The year-round, on-site caretaker provides a variety of services, while Ranch Central features an elegantly appointed “community living room” for entertainment and relaxation. Avon, Beaver Creek, Vail and Edwards are minutes away. It is also centrally located making memberships in a multitude of clubs an easy fit for owners in Mountain Star. One characteristic that makes this community unique is the amount of space given to each home. The entire subdivision is sprawled out over 1,300 acres of rolling hills and forested land yet only contains 90 houses. This means an average of 14 acres per home. Homeowners can not only enjoy all the wide-open space year-round but are greeted every day with the sights of the Gore and Sawatch mountain ranges. The elevation is approximately 8200 to 9200 feet above sea level.
