For those who seek an ultra-luxe Colorado retreat, this picture-perfect, four-bedroom, six-bathroom Vail duplex epitomizes what resort buyers crave. Here we name the top five reasons to love this exclusive ski home, ideally situated on desirable Gore Creek.

First off, LOCATION. This property is ideally situated on Beaver Dam Road, just steps to Vail Village and Gondola One at Vail Ski Resort. It is private and secluded, yet relatively easy to access. If your timing is right you can catch one of the flights into Eagle County Regional Airport take the quick 35-minute drive into town. If you opt for the mile-high route through Denver International Airport (DIA), you will need to order a rental or car service for the two-hour drive into Vail. Once you’ve arrived, simply drop your bags and let the vacation begin. Everything you need is located in and around Vail Village.

VIEWS! This property at 223 Beaver Dam Road has arguably the best views in town. Backing up to the exquisite Gore Creek, you’ll find sweeping mountain vistas and lush panoramas at every turn. Taking full advantage of the outdoors, you will be in awe at the walls of windows framing vibrant Blue Spruce, Douglas Fir, and Bristlecone Pine that dot the landscape.

Whether you’re cozied up by the fire, or serving hors d’oeuvres from the gourmet kitchen, this dwelling was built to bring the outdoors in. Just look at these bedroom suites – aren’t they just divine?

Speaking of the outdoors, the OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING areas of this luxury retreat are unmatched. From multiple terraces and patios, to the towering stacked stone fireplace, lower level fire pit, and hot tub overlooking Gore Creek, nothing could be more inviting after a fun-filled day on the slopes. Ideal for hosting family and friends, you’ll love the low-maintenance, lock-and-leave lifestyle of this idyllic mountain retreat.

Inside, the quality CRAFTSMANSHIP and high-end finishes know no bounds. It hits you the moment you arrive, with a custom-designed floor plan by architect Hans Berglund, AIA and LEED-certified president of Berglund Architects.

With nearly 4,000 square feet of open, airy living and entertaining space, we appreciate the effortless layout, marked by a special warmth that sets it apart.

Gorgeous hardwood floors, natural stone finishes, contemporary stainless-steel kitchen, modern lighting, soaring ceilings, and exposed steel beams combine to create a super luxe environment for kicking back in style. It even has a private elevator to whisk you away to the floor of your choosing.

Last but not least, this enviable ski residence affords a year-round LIFESTYLE that’s tough to beat. Have you heard the Colorado adage, “People come for the winter, and stay for the summer?” Well in Vail, this couldn’t be more true.

The summers are in a word, spectacular, filled with activities to satisfy the most discerning of residents. Gore Creek offers some of the best Gold Medal fly-fishing around, not to mention the Vail Valley’s family-friendly events, rafting and kayaking tours, breathtaking scenic hikes, and thrilling mountain bike rides.

In the winter months, Vail Ski Resort is sure to cure your need for shredding fresh pow with world-class snowboarding and skiing, but the area is also great for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hanging at a local lodge, or tasting your way through Vail’s award-winning cuisine.
