Private Homes estate description

Few residences in Vail offer a comparable combination of spectacular views, privacy, and easy access to Vail Mountain. The home sits high-on-site, on an incredible .82-acre lot with a private pond (for ice staking in winter) and no impact from highway noise. Nestled by national forest, an untouched hillside provides the illusion of seclusion, contrary to the reality that all Vail has to offer is right around the bend. Featuring an architecturally stunning facade with a bridge leading to the front entrance, the home itself is undoubtedly worthy of its location. Boasting four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms (each bedroom with it own bathroom), a great room with vaulted ceilings and wall-to-wall windows overlooking the pond and mountainside, the spacious interior exudes warmth and functionality. Luxury finishes in the kitchen and throughout deliver the final touch to this exceptional mountain estate. This is an ideal location for a family reunion, or to gather your top business or core ministry team for a visionary retreat in the mountains.

                  • Mountain:

                    Tucked between two mountains in the West Vail area, this home has the best of both worlds. Close to the fun and active life of Vail Village with world class down hill skiing, luxury shopping, gourmet dining, night life and fine arts, yet located on a very quiet mountainside (no highway noise from I 70) where you can hear Buffehr Creek trickle and roll over the rocks. This Vail hideaway overlooks a pond (that is great for the ice skater in the family) and mountain-scape that takes your breath way. Right across the street are hiking trails up the mountain and back into the wilderness where wild raspberries grow along the trail and beaver dams create pure water mountain lakes. The outdoors-wilderness lover will find trails, cross country skiing, canoeing, mountain climbing, hiking, swimming and so many activities to discover, there is something for everyone....moreless

Colorado's finest is waiting here for you, including locally grown produce, international dishes, fresh baked goods and even Colorado wine, all ready for you to enjoy during your summer in Vail.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: We are a family based in Chicago, who love the mountains and skiing. Very house proud, we take special care to make our home beautiful and welcoming. It has given us so much joy. Kelly & Michael (in the picture) both come from large families - Kelly is from Kansas City, went to TCU in Texas for college and is one of 10 children; Michael is one of 12 and is from Chicago, but lived for 10 years in Ireland going to University College Dublin for undergrad. We love the outdoors (the picture is from a nearby lake to our Vail home with two of our kids), hiking, boating, camping, cooking on an outdoor fire are all wonderful. We are expecting our 4th child this year and so will not be in Vail this season. We hope you come instead!

                              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                              When I was a child I would come to Colorado for summer camp, and Vail to ski. We have family and friends in Denver and when the opportunity presented itself, it was a natural fit.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                              We love to host and to gather friends and family together for fun. The size and secluded location were just right for us. The 5 bedrooms, roomy open cathedral spaces, steam room, views, so close to the outdoors, so deceptively near the social life of Vail Villiage - this place has it all.
