Check out this home that just came on the market at the base of Vail Mountain, CO. 7 beds, 7 bathrooms, and 2 half-baths, across 7,800-sqft, with ski-in-ski-out access. All for $26-million.
Tell you what though, that decor isn’t to my taste. I would need gutting and modernizing if I was to buy. Which I’m not, but one can dream, right? Full listing below…
A homesite chosen by the original investors of Vail Mountain, CO for its unparalleled access to the ski slopes, unobstructed views of the Gore Range, and pristine natural surroundings, 375 Mill Creek Circle combines timeless luxury with impeccable craftsmanship while absorbing the incredible history of this premier ski-in / ski-out location.
The European-style chalet, built-in 1996 by George Shaeffer Construction, was built with the family in mind, suitable to sleep up to 18 people comfortably and play host to children and grandchildren during the holidays and family ski trips. Immediately off the backyard, which backs up to the Golden Peak base area and is surrounded by old-growth aspen and spruce trees, are the Gopher Hill chairlift and Elvis Bahn magic carpet that service beginner-level skiers. A few steps further is the Riva Bahn high-speed quad, which leads to Chair 10 and Chair 14 — long-considered by locals to be the quickest, most efficient route to Vail’s Back Bowls. From the front of the home, Gondola One and the heart of Vail Village, with its world-class dining and nightlife, are just a few steps away. And there simply is no better location to enjoy culture and events, such as the New Year’s Eve torchlight ski-down, Fourth of July fireworks, and the GoPro Mountain Games.
This home was meticulously created by designers and artisans to emphasize flow and privacy with limestone flooring, hand-trough Venetian plaster walls, and Koa wood harvested from Hawaii. This grand living space spares no expense or attention to detail with direct, unmitigated views of the spectacular Gore Range. The great room adjoins an oversized flagstone deck and outdoor living space perfectly positioned to peer over the treetops at the iconic mountain scenery that has come to define the Vail experience.
The master suite lies on the opposite side of the great room, connected to an intimate library. Six en-suite bedrooms reside on the entry-level, but downstairs is where the real fun happens. An oversized media/game room with a plethora of lounge space, perfect for after-ski movies or a football game between laps on Golden Peak.
A luxurious and private backyard is protected by the surrounding trees and features custom stonework, an outdoor speaker system, and most notably, an enchanting four-season swimming pool with an indoor/outdoor entrance that allows pool-goers to forgo the cold winter air.
The indoor entrance to the swimming pool and access to the ski slopes are just steps from the media room, made all the more accessible by a custom ski locker room outfitted for the whole family with plenty of storage for gear and equipment.
