With two, it’s a quiet Colorado ski weekend. With 22, it’s a party.
Welcome to a sleek contemporary on Vail’s sought-after Beaver Dam Road. The Vail Village 3 neighborhood of custom homes and hiking trails is set among the pines within walking distance of skis slopes, Vail Village and Lionshead Village.
Designed for intimate or family gatherings, the three-story retreat combines luxury and mountain living at the turn of a key.
The exterior’s strong lines are emphasized by stone, metal and wood partitions framing expanses of glass. Clerestory windows under the cantilevered rooflines bring additional light and mountain views into the more than 5,900 square feet of interiors.
The high-ceilinged living room centers on a tall fireplace flanked by windows and walls of glass, which open to the outdoors. Natural views from the quarter-acre site change with the season and time of day.
The black marble fireplace sets the stage for the muted palette of the open-plan space, blending shades of gray to create a calming cocoon effect. The wood ceiling and wide plank floors add an enclosing warmth.
Seating for eight off the center island augments the 10-person dining table. A state-of-the-art kitchen completes the great room.
Glass-sided staircases with wooden treads and flush trim-less interior doors enhance the home’s sleek appearance.
An elevator accesses all the floors, including the rooftop patio, which features a hot tub. There’s another hot tub on the main level by the outdoor lounge area, which incorporates a fire pit, barbecue space and room for al fresco dining. A window over the kitchen sink opens to create a pass-through to the outdoor dining table.
Other highlights of the interiors by Studio James, known for its modern aesthetic, include a media room with a wine wall. Apparatus and Jonathan Browning lighting fixtures are used throughout. Built in 2017, the house was designed by Suman Architects, a Vail-based boutique firm.
The two owners’ suites, two guest suites and two bunkrooms, for a total of six vaulted-ceiling bedrooms, can comfortably accommodate 22. Bathrooms number 10.
Smart home features are integrated throughout. There is gas and radiant floor heating. A sweeping paver driveway leads to the attached three-car garage.
