Private Homes house description

Bordering the National Forest in sunny West Vail, Alpine View is a three bedroom, three and a half bath European-style home, custom built in 1980 with Old World craftsmanship. The great room has a cathedral ceiling and large expanses of glass for viewing the spectacular scenery. It includes a gas fireplace and comfortable seating for reading, napping and watching movies on the cable TV or DVD/VCR.

Off the great room is a cozy octagonal room with glass walls and ceiling that offers fantastic views of the Gore Range and the south side of the Vail Valley. Sliding doors open to extensive outdoor space that includes a veranda with a gas grill and a gazebo, along with a fire pit that seats eight to ten people. These are perfect places for sipping a favorite beverage and enjoying the dramatic views that surround this idyllic site.

The home has a dining room that seats six, the octagonal room that seats six and a breakfast bar that seats three. A wet bar is well-placed for entertaining.

The fully equipped kitchen includes both gas and electric stoves, oven, microwave and dishwasher.

Connected to the hallway with the wet bar is the game room with exercise equipment and a ping pong table, along with seating so people can watch the game.

Downstairs in a private office are a computer with broadband service, WiFi, FAX, scanner and printer. Next to the office is the laundry room with washer/dryer.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, a gas fireplace, TV and a large en-suite bath that also includes an indoor hot tub to enjoy after a long day of skiing. (In the summer, the hot tub is drained, because otherwise it makes the house too hot.) On the same level is a second bedroom with a queen bed and TV that opens onto a sitting room with a beautiful view, charming waterfall and sauna. The bath has a tub/shower combination.

A third floor suite includes a third bedroom with a queen bed and TV that opens onto a deck overlooking the National Forest meadow where the elk and other wildlife sometimes come in the winter. The bath has a tub/shower combination. This bedroom is next to a loft sitting room with a queen sleep sofa and a cubby with a king size mattress where older children love to sleep.

The attached garage has room for one car, and a second car can be parked behind it and will be mostly sheltered from snow. This fabulous mountain escape is three full blocks to the bus stop on Chamonix Lane. The hike back up the hill from the bus stop is difficult for people who have been living at sea level, especially in winter.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Neil is a retired space scientist, with special expertise in satellites. He is currently enrolled in a course of study, which is a combination of transpersonal psychology and parapsychology. Fonya is a psychologist and psychoanalyst in private practice, offering therapy in person and using the telephone or Skype. Our permanent home is in Virginia Beach, VA. We enjoy skiing on warm sunny days in winter and spring. In the summer, we play golf and enjoy long evenings outside dining on the patio. We also have found a number of restaurants in Vail and the surrounding area in all price ranges and have compiled a list of our favorites for our guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We have been coming to the Vail Valley for more than twenty years and finally were able to buy our home in the mountains. We chose a house with an original design, constructed over time by a European craftsman, who started building in the 1980's. The house has many interesting and fanciful spaces, and we were captivated by its charm. The use of skylights and large windows creates light throughout the house, making it very welcoming and offering many beautiful views. Gas fireplaces in the master bedroom and the great room make it cozy in the winter.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The views of the surrounding mountains are very special. In the summer, the outdoor spaces on the patio with the gazebo make outdoor living and dining a pleasure. Even on hot days, the evenings in the mountains are cool. In winter, the house has light and is warmed by the sun during the day. While we are high up on the hill with beautiful views, we also are only minutes away from fine restaurants, movies, the Colorado Ski Museum, ski lifts and golf courses.
