A Scott Turnipseed design, 786 Forest Trail is magical to say the least! Surrounded by dancing aspen trees that create meandering morning sunlight and cool afternoon breezes, this home is one of the finest on Forest Trail. Pitched on a generous 1.2 acres in the Whittaker Ponds neighborhood of the Ranch at Cordillera, this home's sweeping mountain views capture the Gore Range and even the lush Cordillera Ranch golf course. These picturesque scenes can be enjoyed year-round from the great room or the expansive covered patio, complete with an outdoor fireplace. This home offers rich finishes including handsome wood floors and beams, large windows, and 3 interior stone fireplaces. The cozy hearth room nestled between the kitchen and the outdoor living space is perfect for reading a book by the fire on snowy mornings or enjoying a crisp summer breeze with the doors open. The sought-after main floor master includes views, his and her closets, washer/dryer hook-ups and a luxurious bath with spacious double vanity. The easy floor plan boasts an entirely open great room, kitchen and dining area. The home's lower level includes a functional family room with full wetbar, fireplace, walk-out sun-drenched patio, and 3 spacious, ensuite bedrooms. A bonus room could also be used for a variety of functions. One can also find storage galore in closets on every level! For privacy, a large bedroom with private bath over the garage is adjacent to a small den or reading room as well as office space. The 3-car garage, mud room, main floor laundry and planning desk off the kitchen make daily living effortless. Experience all that Cordillera has to offer- an extraordinary mountain lifestyle packed full of golf and hiking with breathtaking views, horseback riding, swimming, pickleball, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing...all within a short drive of Vail and Beaver Creek's world-class resorts. A picture-perfect life in the Colorado mountains awaits!
Within one community, there are perhaps more amenities than anywhere else in the Eagle Valley. If Vail and Beaver Creek weren’t 25 minutes and 15 minutes away, respectively, residents wouldn’t have many reasons to leave Cordillera. Cordillera offers three 18-hole golf courses — at 7,200, 8,200 and 9,200 feet in elevation — community pools, tennis and pickleball courts, a 10-hole Par 3 golf course, stocked fishing ponds, and gorgeous hiking and biking trails. An equestrian center and working ranches keep the area’s ranching heritage in the spotlight, while snowshoeing and cross-country skiing warm things up during winter months. This single-family home community offers enclave residences from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet, as well as custom homes of all sizes. Vacant land ranges from 1 to 35-acre parcels, with pricing that arguably offers some of the valley’s biggest bang for your buck. Prices range from $800,000 for an enclave, single-family home to $6 million for a large home with acreage. Vacant lots start around $75,000, while the sweet spot for available homes is roughly $1.5 million to $2.5 million. There are 7,200 acres bordering U.S. Forest Service lands, as well as 3,000 acres of open space. Active wildlife corridors mean you’ll share space with deer, elk, fox, redtail hawks, owls and more, and the location up and away from Interstate 70 brings peacefully quiet seclusion. Buyers looking for privacy and quiet views who also appreciate outdoor recreation can find the perfect balance in Cordillera — away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to easily get into Vail and Beaver Creek. The Trailhead family facility offers an outdoor pool, jacuzzis, slide pools, a playground and day camp. Two restaurants offer delicious dining options for those times when you just don’t want to head into town. With countless amenities, expansive views, wide open spaces and beautiful homes, it’s easy to understand why many residents might never feel like leaving.
