When it comes to winter homes at world-class resorts, the best locations are close to the slopes but away from the crowds. Therein lies the difficulty of finding lodging in popular Vail, Colorado, which is easily accessible yet private.
This walk to the slopes Contemporary Mountain Delivers on both counts. The chalet is steps away from the pedestrian-friendly village of Vail with its shops and restaurants and Golden Peak, a prime area with a lodge, ski school and a viewing point from which to view the train racers.
The right location is due to a stroke of luck. Originally, the site housed a Tyrolean restaurant. When it closed, the structure was reinvented in 2006 and transformed into 5,380 square feet of luxurious living space.
The separate roofline and the lack of shared walls with neighbors contribute to the privacy of single-family accommodation. One side of the property is located along the banks of Gore Creek. Take in the views at Vail Mountain.
An open plan great room adjoining the well-equipped kitchen, complete with Wolf and Subzero appliances, is designed for large scale entertaining and intimate gatherings of family and friends. The center island provides bar seating for five.
Stone fireplace with raised hearth anchors the main living area. Vaulted wood ceilings, wood floors, cupboards, and stair railings continue throughout.
There is also a formal dining area. Open deck glass sliders for summertime meals. Another deck has a hot tub.
Four bedrooms, a den, a wine cellar, a full bathroom, four three-quarter baths and a powder room complete the floor plan.
Three parking spaces and ample storage spaces are included in the asking price of $20.5 million.
