Market Watch: Three Unique Lifestyle Homes In Colorado
The best luxury vacation homes in Colorado should strike a seamless balance between convenience and privacy.
Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, one of the top brokers in Colorado, features some of the best luxury vacation homes that are equally convenient and private. Here’s a look at three unique properties, each catering to a different type of lifestyle.
A Front-Row Place To Luxury Amenities
Price: $17.9 million
The Vail Chalet at 151 Vail Lane 12 boasts front-row access to views from the Gore Range.
Future residents of the ski-in, ski-out luxury property duplex will also enjoy being near Gondola 1. As one of the newest gondolas at Vail Resort, the route traverses from the Vista Bahn base area to the middle of Vail.
Key details of the 4,531-square-foot property:
- 2 heated garage spaces
- 4 bedrooms
- 4 full bathrooms and 1 half bathroom
- Outdoor decks and patios
- Radiant heating and zoned cooling
- Vaulted ceiling(s) and gas fireplace
An elevator provides residents with easy access throughout the three-level property. Despite being at the end of a gated and private drive, the luxury amenities at the Vail Village are a stone’s throw away from the property.
Purchase of the Vail Chalet includes a Vail Mountain Club social membership. It offers year-round access to ski lockers, ski valet, spa and fitness center among other perks.
During days when you just want to stay inside, you can still soak in the active vibe within the community. For example, you can watch skiers between Pepi’s Face and Golden Peak from the chalet’s spacious outdoor decks.
An Island-Like Lake Creek Home In A Charming Forest
Price: $6.299 million
The Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate listing for 297 Pilgrim Drive describes the property as “an island in a mature aspen forest.”
Perhaps the best thing about the prime property is a separate living space comprising two bedrooms and a garage. The 1,300-square-foot living space may accommodate a caretaker, guests or an extended family.
Key details of the 11,603-square-foot property:
- 4 garage spaces
- 5 bedrooms (main home) and 2 bedrooms (extension)
- 7 full bathrooms and 4 half bathrooms
- Carpet, stone, tile and wood flooring
- Gas fireplace, propane and radiant heating
- Heated garage
- No HOA
- Recreational amenities (e.g. home theater, poker room)
Guests and residents need to pass through a gated security entrance of Pilgrim Downs subdivision before arriving at the property.
Aside from acres of lush forestry, you’ll see a pond and a seasonal creek within the surrounding 5.51 acres of land.
A Mountain Modern Masterpiece With Stunning Views
Price: $3.2 million
Looking for the latest in new development but still want stunning views? Check out 14 Waterfront Way at the Riverfront Village community.
The townhome’s strategic location means it has incredible views of Beaver Creek ski slopes. It’s in one of the most desirable areas in Riverfront Village; residents have access to all the world-class amenities at the neighboring Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa. Future residents will also enjoy proximity to the gondola connecting to Beaver Creek.
Key details of the 2,290-square-foot property:
