One of the Vail Valley's true estate homes offering spectacular outdoor living to entertain your family and friends in the peaceful Rocky Mountains. Mountain Star is an exclusive gated community centrally located in the Vail Valley on the sunny side of the valley with expansive views of Beaver Creek Resort and the Gore and Sawatch Mountain Ranges.
You drive up the mountain to reveal a landmark 5-bedroom estate with a grand porte-cochere entry among the surrounding aspens and pine trees. With non-existent highway noise you will enjoy the natural serenity of this private Colorado mountain retreat.
Step outside and surround yourself with a very impressive and elaborate outdoor living space. The grand outdoor entertainment area offers stunning views of the mountains, Beaver Creek and beyond. This entertainer's dream includes a large salt-water pool, in-ground spa, a dedicated grilling area, wet bar and full outdoor bathroom.
Warmth and elegance continue into the home itself, where you are greeted by a formal entry suited with a magnificent hardwood spiral staircase that ascends to the second floor and immediately sets the intentions for this beautifully designed home.
The stunning light-filled great room is the property’s signature living space. Cathedral-height ceilings span the full width of the living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors on three sides of the room take advantage of the breathtaking views. An eye-catching wood plank ceiling provides dramatic contrast against the white Venetian plastered walls and tremendous limestone and Telluride-gold stone wood-burning fireplace in this grand living area, which features a wet bar for entertaining.
The other half of the main floor presents multiple living spaces in an open floor plan. A large chef’s kitchen designed with cooking and entertaining in mind. A large island for the chef and sous chef to cook and prepare meals. Professional quality Wolf and Bosch appliances, a Subzero refrigerator plus an additional temperature-controlled drawer will ensure that even the most discriminating culinary aficionado will be duly satisfied. An adjacent breakfast nook, a large dining area and an additional den allows for a more casual sitting area for the family to be together while cooking meals.
Winding upstairs, the upper level creates an atrium providing space in which an additional media and game room are great for relaxing après or watching a game and entertaining. Perched among the pines, the bright master suite is accessed from this atrium. With ample space, a sitting area and gas fireplace, the light filled room opens to a private balcony that overlooks the backyard and Beaver Creek ski runs. The lavish bathroom is guaranteed to be a showstopper. Etched glass French doors reveal a dramatic white double ended freestanding porcelain tub, steam shower and walk-in closet. With the ability to work from anywhere these days, an office just beyond the bedroom offers privacy, air-condition and elevated mountain views with an additional door that leads you onto the back deck for a truly peaceful office away from the rest of the home.
Three en-suite bedrooms, a full-sized gym and large laundry room complete the other wing which has a rear staircase leading you back down to the main floor.
If you are really ready to impress your guests, take them to your custom stone wine cellar and tasting room with areas for wine decanting and a poker table. Also on the lower level is a luxury media room with enough room for arcade games, a pool table, darts and golf simulator.
Two, 2-car garages allow for plenty of bike and mountain gear storage. Plus, a carport area to turn into a sport court if desired. The mudroom has plenty of closet space for meticulous organization and a heated snow-melt system on the outdoor decks ensure your winter months are stress free.
Uncompromising in its commitment to quality throughout this property offers the perfect balance between privacy and proximity to all of the amenities in the Vail Valley.
