1119 Ptarmigan Road | Vail,Colorado

Situated on multiple home sites in Vail, and just around the corner from Golden Peak in Vail Village, the home is a remarkable family compound known as 1119 Ptarmigan. With unsurpassed views of the Gore Range the estate boasts two striking homes that are combined by private and extravagant outdoor living.  To add to the value and privacy the previous owners purchased 4.25 acres south of the estate donating it to the Town of Vail as open space to ensure the estate’s pristine beauty.  In addition to the stunning views of the Gore Range the outdoor focal point of the home is an expansive pool, Jacuzzi, fire pit, outdoor kitchen, lush landscaping and heated flagstone patio uniting the two residences.  The owners have graciously entertained for charity events and private parties of over 100 guests.

When entering this family compound you cannot help but experience a castle-like feel from the gray granite stone exterior and lush landscaping.  The main house has stunning cathedral ceilings with hand-hewn trusses and beams that opens to grand spaces framed with the refined finishes of plaster, stone, marble & granite found in the finest residences in ski country.  But what demands to be the main focal point is the majestic Gore Range views seen through floor to ceiling windows when you walk into the great room. A dramatic stone fireplace and two warm seating areas sets the perfect mood.   The elegant dining room is embellished with a spectacular Fortuny Chandelier and impressive seating area. An adjacent wine cellar enhances the romantic ambiance.  The gourmet kitchen and seating area open to the outdoor living. A spacious master suite opens with double doors and has an intimate fireplace sitting area.  The master bath includes a free standing soaking tub and an incredible two-story, slate-and-glass tower with a skylight above to capture the Colorado bluebird skies or midnight stars.

While the main house is composed of five-bedrooms, the guesthouse is the perfect four bedroom family retreat.  Recently remodeled the guesthouse has an elegant and modern feel with a gourmet kitchen, stone fireplace, and a wall of French doors that open up to the patio and pool area to bring the outdoors into the living room.  With that same theme the family room below captures the beauty of the outdoors with a wall of glass that opens to the private stone patio.  The guesthouse includes an inviting one-bedroom caretaker’s apartment and an expansive three car garage. Own one of the most iconic and prestigious homes in the Vail Valley, a perfect family compound and/or corporate retreat.
