Ski and Golf Family Paradise - Vail Valley, CO
Need a great outdoors getaway? Look no further than this fantastic 5 bedroom, 6 bath, 5,800 sq. ft. custom home located in the community of Red Sky Ranch in Colorado, home to 2 spectacular golf courses (one designed by Greg Norman, the other by Tom Fazio).
As you enter the residence (which is comprised of 3 separate buildings looking historic with one in stone, one in reclaimed barnwood, and one of original logs which have been connected through the years) through the foyer, it opens to a wall of glass framing the mountains and three perfectly positioned junipers. Look above to the most unusual Latigo ceiling. Turn and enter the hall of reclaimed oak floors and soaring 35' ceiling. To the left is the powder room and office with washer and dryer.
Continue to the great room, which has glass windows and doors on all three sides, allowing for magnificent views. In this spacious area of 30' x 50' you have the living area (72" TV) with massive stone fireplace and original artwork, game table, full bar (with an ice maker and fridge) with four stools, dining table for 8 or 10, and a chef's kitchen with a granite top island lined with 4 bar stools. The kitchen is fully stocked and features upscale appliances such as a Viking cooktop and refrigerator, 2 Bosch dishwashers, custom cabinets, and pantry.
To the left of the kitchen is a hearth room with two large leather seats that serves as another tv seating area for a more intimate feel with a cozy fireplace.
On the south end of the living area, you walk up 2 steps through a small library which houses a chest full of games. Walk on through a replicated covered bridge hallway into the master bedroom suite. There is a king bed and chests, a seating area with a private fireplace, and soaring ceilings. The room opens to a covered porch which has a walkway to the hot tub. The bath consists of 2 separate vanities, separate toilet areas, a jacuzzi tub in Old West style, and a steam shower.
Back to the foyer, turn right to find additional bedrooms. On your way you'll pass an office and a full bath. To the right is the mud room and second washer and dryer leading to the 3 car garage. Back to the hall of stone floors, you'll be led to 2 other guest bedrooms with ensuite baths. Going up the stairs, you'll enter a game room with leather couches, TV, ping pong table, and an efficiency kitchen. Further down that hall are 2 more guest rooms (one king and one bunk room) with ensuite bathrooms. Kids love this area!
Outside, there are 3 porches with cedar furniture, a grill, table, and 6 chairs. The hot tub is only steps away! Each of the bedrooms has an outside entrance to the old-fashioned wrap around porch.
This is a wonderful, custom designed house for both privacy and socializing- both of which are important for the perfect vacation!

Vail Valley Vacation
This five bedroom large beautiful reclaimed wood and log home at Red Sky Ranch made the perfect setting for our big family to gather over the holidays. Sleeps twelve easily. The layout allowed everyone nice privacy, especially in the master suite which only connects to the home via a passageway...totally private and the upstairs bedrooms/bunk room in a separate wing have their own living and play area. The kitchen was amazing and able to handle multiple hands working at the same time easily with abundant work surfaces. Views of the mountains to the north were unobstructed through a large wall of glass and the furnishings were extremely comfortable. Only ten/fifteen minutes to Arrowhead and Beaver Creek ski areas which over Christmas had no lift lines! The best part was one could avoid Vail completely and not be subject to the crowd and parking issues there yet still have access to great skiing, cross country on the adjacent golf course and the amenities of Edwards which are more than adequate for a resort town. The owners, Rita and Tom, were completely responsive to every request and all was simply wonderful. Can't recommend it enough. We have enjoyed maybe seven or eight different 3rd home locations and this home is at the top of the list. Carl CArl”
