SKI-IN / SKI-OUT ALPINE RETREATDrive along the Bachelor Gulch ski trails on approach to the heated driveway and welcoming porte-cochere. Perfect for family vacations, the open layout promotes closeness and interaction without sacrificing space. A charming, professional kitchen serves as its centerpiece immediately adjacent to a cozy family den and grand living room, all sharing a beautifully crafted three-sided fireplace to warm the home's primary living spaces.This retreat is distinguished by a grand master suite -- one of the property's most unique characteristics -- situated in a private wing of the home. With expansive windows on three sides, an abundance of natural light illuminates this south-facing master bedroom with dual balconies, lofted ceilings, an elaborate walk-in closet, and luxurious bathroom. Completing the home are four additional well-proportioned bedrooms, including a nanny's quarters and children's suite, delightfully outfitted with a multilevel playroom from which an enclosed, spiral slide is the preferred method of descent. Of course, grownup amenities are also included within the home, such as a large exercise facility and theater room.The home's most impressive and unique characteristic is found outside of its walls. The back porch, distinctly designed to extend away from the main structure of the house, harnesses its wooded surroundings and bears a tree house-like quality. This perched-up, outdoor living space takes advantage of cross-valley views, as well as a fireplace, grill and dining area, perfect for summer nights in the Rocky Mountains. Nestled among the towering lodgepole pine and inviting Aspen this exquisite mountain escape achieves both privacy and convenience on one of the valley's most desirable mountain roads. Daybreak Ridge, cresting well above 9,000 vertical feet, is the quintessence of high-elevation, alpine living, complete with ski-in/ski-out access to Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch.
About Bachelor Gulch
Bachelor Gulch Village has a long, rich history named fondly after a few lonely bachelors who settled in this little pristine and secluded valley in the early 1900’s. This exclusive gated community is part of Beaver Creek Mountain, located on the adjoining ridge and part of the village-to-village ski experience between Beaver Creek Resort, Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead. It is the only residential ski neighborhood entirely on-mountain in the Vail Valley. As a Bachelor Gulch Village homeowner, you can sit back and take in the panoramic views of the Gore Range to the east all the way to Castle Peak in the west. Once you pass through the private gates, you can admire the picturesque parkitecture, which the resort is known for, with rustic native stone, seasoned timbers and massive logs modeled after the iconic lodges found in national parks like Yosemite and Yellowstone. Visit The Ritz-Carlton®, the keystone of the resort, to experience fine dining at Spago, Wolfgang Puck’s Colorado outpost, or pamper yourself at their outstanding newly renovated spa. This prestigious on-mountain community is for those who wish to live life luxuriously and appreciate what the early settlers understood over a century ago about this special place now called Bachelor Gulch Village.
