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 welcomes you with a cathedral ceiling and large expanses of glass for viewing the spectacular scenery. Enjoy the comfortable seating around the gas fireplace for reading, napping, listening to beautiful music on the Sony stereo system, or watching DVDs or movies on the HDTV.
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. It's perfect for dining or playing cards. Sliding doors open to extensive outdoor spaces that include a patio with a gas grill and a turret/gazebo, along with a fire pit that seats eight to ten people. These places are ideal 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, in between the breakfast bar and the game room. The game room offers a place for indoor exercise and a professional ping pong table, along with comfortable seating so people can gather to watch the game.
The fully equipped kitchen includes both gas and electric stoves, oven, microwave and dishwasher.
WI-FI is available throughout the home, and no password is needed.
Downstairs in a private office are a computer with broadband service, FAX, scanner and printer. Next to the office is the laundry room with a large washer and dryer.
The master bedroom offers 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 or hiking. On the same level is a second bedroom with a queen bed and TV that opens onto a sunroom with a sauna. The bath has a tub/shower combination.
A third floor suite includes a third bedroom with a queen bed and TV, and a bath with a tub/shower combination. The bedroom opens onto a very private deck overlooking the large meadow that is part of the National Forest. Relaxing in the afternoon sun is a special treat. On the same level is 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 can be difficult for people who have been living at sea level, however, especially in winter.
Our home is perfect for adults and older children who will be understand how to use the indoor hot tub, climb a spiral staircase, and use the third floor sitting room with its view to the great room below.

About the owner: Neil is a retired space scientist, with special expertise in satellites. He is currently enrolled in a doctoral program in transpersonal psychology. Fonya is a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst in private practice, offering therapy in person and also by telephone, Skype, or FaceTime. 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 wonderful restaurants in Vail and the surrounding area in all price ranges.
Why the Owner Chose West Vail, Vail, CO, USA:
We have been coming to the Vail Valley for more than thirty years and finally have been able to buy our own home in the mountains. We chose a house with an original design, constructed over time by a European craftsman, who began building it in the 1980's; and we were captivated by the charming, interesting, and fanciful spaces. 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 and add extra warmth in the winter.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views of the surrounding mountains are very special and create a sense of inner peace. In the summer, the outdoor spaces on the patio with the turret/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.
