Bordering the National Forest in sunny West Vail, Alpine View is a three bedroom, three and a half bath European-style home, custom built in 1980 with Old World craftsmanship. Our mountain home is a fairy-tale house; it is funky and full of surprises. We have a caretaker on the property who will be able to help you with anything you need and will respect your privacy otherwise.
Our home is perfect for adults and children eight and older who will understand how to use the indoor hot tub, climb a spiral staircase, and be careful in the third floor sitting room with its open view to the great room below.
The great room welcomes you with a cathedral ceiling and large expanses of glass for viewing the spectacular scenery. Enjoy the comfortable seating around the gas fireplace for reading, relaxing, listening to beautiful music on the Sony stereo system, or watching DVDs or movies on the HDTV.
Off the great room is a cozy octagonal room with glass walls and ceiling that offers fantastic views of the Gore Range and the south side of the Vail Valley. It's perfect for dining or playing cards. Sliding doors open to extensive outdoor spaces that include a patio with a gas grill and a turret/gazebo, along with a fire pit that seats eight to ten people. These places are ideal for sipping a favorite beverage and enjoying the dramatic views that surround this idyllic site.
The home has a dining room that seats six, an octagonal room seats six, and a breakfast bar that seats three. A wet bar is well-placed for entertaining, in between the breakfast bar and the game room. The game room offers a professional ping pong table, along with comfortable seating so people can gather to watch the game.
The fully equipped kitchen includes both gas and electric stoves, oven, microwave and dishwasher.
WI-FI is available throughout the home, and downstairs is an office space ideal for working with your laptop computer in a private place. Next to the office is a laundry room with a large washer and dryer.
The master bedroom offers a king size bed, gas fireplace, TV and a en-suite bath with a large shower for two people and an indoor hot tub to enjoy after a long day of skiing or hiking. On the same level is a second bedroom with a queen bed and TV that opens onto a spa room with a sauna. The bath off the spa room has a tub/shower combination.
The third floor includes an open loft sitting room with a queen sleep sofa, a cubby with a king-size mattress, a third bedroom with a queen bed and TV, and a bath with a tub/shower combination. The bedroom opens onto a very private deck overlooking the large meadow that is part of the National Forest. Relaxing in the afternoon sun is a special treat.
The attached garage has room for one car, and a second car can be parked behind it and will be mostly sheltered from snow. This fabulous mountain escape is three full blocks to the bus stop on Chamonix Lane. The hike back up the hill from the bus stop can be difficult for people who have been living at sea level, however, especially in winter.
We hope you will enjoy our mountain home and that it will get to feel as if it's yours, too.
