It could be argued that there is only one person who knows a house better than the owners and that is the architect. It is only fitting then that when the time comes for renovations, the clear choice would be the home’s original designer. Such is the case for this lavish 8-bedroom estate perched on Vail Mountain.

A bedroom with vaulted ceilings and a sleek fireplace.

Completed in 2007 with plans from Kyle Webb, the sprawling mountain retreat received a major remodel a few years later with the award-winning architect being called back to expand upon his original design.

The ski-in, ski-out estate sits at the base of the Bear Tree ski run in Vail Village, one of the most exclusive enclaves in the area. A grand cathedral entrance is as impressive viewed from the outside as the inside, setting the stage for the 12,477-square-foot home’s sophisticated interior.

Natural accents like wood beams and stone pillars evoke the scenic surroundings. These rustic touches are balanced by a sleek design, making for chic yet cozy living spaces. The great room with a towering stone fireplace and custom rock chandelier is wrapped in walls of windows boasting mountain views.

Outdoor firepit centers an expansive patio with views of Gore Range.

Set apart from the guest rooms, maximum privacy is afforded to the primary bedroom, complete with an ensuite bathroom and large walk-in closets. Other highlights include a media room, game room, spa-like steam shower and access to a private hot tub on the lower level. Outside, the expansive, heated patio with a lap pool and firepit offers far-reaching views of the Gore Range.
