Luxury Geothermal Home Hits Market at $34 Million
A five-bedroom luxury home in Vail, Colorado, featuring geothermal heating and modernist design was listed at $34 million on the local real estate market.
It's a record setting price, eclipsing last month's record sale of $23 million in the same Vail Village neighborhood.
Acknowledged as a "Gore Creek Masterpiece," the 11,007 square-foot tri-level contemporary home features five bedrooms and ten baths on a .87 acre site abutting open space, Gore Creek and adjacent to a scenic trout pond, located equidistant from both the Lionshead and Vail Gondolas at 333 Beaver Dam Road.
SSF listing brokers Catherine Jones Coburn and Donna Caynoski described the listing in one of Vail's most desirable neighborhoods.
"After being in the high-end luxury market in the mountains for 37 years, I've never seen a home of this quality and stature…ever," said Jones Coburn. "The landscape, location, attention to detail and spectacular design all make the Beaver Dam home a one-of-a-kind luxury find in Vail Village."
The residence is defined by a distinctive mountain contemporary design of voluminous spaces, floor-to-ceiling glass and stone-clad features while still honoring its pure mountain setting.
The home features geothermal heating with in-ground piping for energy efficiency and interior and exterior materials not commonly seen in Vail. There are stories of precision-cut limestone surrounding the contemporary mid-century home, which integrates glass, copper and zinc façades into the structure so that it fits naturally into the forest setting. Further, a cantilevered patio overlooks Gore Creek, yet it is just minutes from village amenities.
Built in 2011, the home saw the work of renowned local firms who have a modernist bent. Architect Brian Judge, VAG, Inc., builder Charlie Dolan and interior designer Eddy Doumas of Worth Interiors collaborated. "This home is about the views, simplicity and connection to the environment. The choice of striking and indigenous structural materials is as spectacular as the site itself," said Doumas.
Real estate sales volume has eclipsed $198 million in the first 60 days of 2017, a 66% increase over 2016 sales during the same period, catapulting luxury home sales to record-setting highs in Vail as buyers are snapping up one-of-a-kind properties in the nation's premier ski resort.
"Discerning buyers are finding the truly exclusive neighborhoods and homes in the valley," said Jim Flaum, managing broker for Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate. "Colorado continues to be one of the nation's foremost destinations and Vail certainly draws in a segment of buyers who appreciate the Colorado lifestyle, beauty and access that we have as a resort and community."
