Lifestyle has never been more valued than it is right now. What more could you ask for than a premium Vail Village location as your home-base for our treasured active yet relaxing lifestyle? 486 Forest Road offers this combination of a truly priceless ski-in/ski-out location providing a front row seat to Vail's extraordinary year-round outdoor activities. And the convenient size of this manageable property will ensure that you spend your time in Vail playing hard rather than hardly playing.
When built, the home was ahead of its time with its contemporary design. Strategically placed, large windows on every side of the home capture cozy morning sun from the east while mature aspens and evergreens filter the warm afternoon sun from the west. The open, slope-side floor plan with vaulted ceilings flows easily and even offers a glimpse of Vail's famous Gore Range from the flexible upper level loft. Even the master bedroom boasts views of the slopes from its hot tub adorned walk-out patio.
Creatively decorated with bright colors and a variety of textures, each bedroom is clean and crisp and bright. The master bedroom glimpses at Born Free Run and the master bath has a skylight providing a peak of the Gondola as it rides by. The guest suite on the lower level is cleverly designed as a lock-off for rental potential, otherwise, the exterior entrance for 2 of these walk-out bedrooms is a flexible dream for biking and skiing visitors on their own schedule. The garage has a large workspace for tinkering and an enviable adjacent ski room.
This home exudes energy and enthusiasm inside while offering end of the street privacy outside, particularly in the summer when the trees are filled with leaves. The creative design and tree-filled, slope-side location make this home a catalyst for imagination of the soul and exercise of the body.
Adjacent to Vail Village alongside Gore Creek, Lionshead - named after a rock formation atop the mountain - also offers tremendous dining and shopping in addition to convenient proximity to the Eagle Bahn Gondola. Lionshead Village has undergone major improvements over the past decade including the development of the Arrabelle - housing a luxury hotel and condominiums as well as shops and restaurants. Lionshead, with its Alpine architecture and cobblestone streets is equally as convenient to winter and summer events and activities as well as being a charming pedestrian village.
