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
Grand homes with exquisite mountain architecture featuring massive logs and rustic stonework make up the unmistakable sense of place found in Bachelor Gulch. Gated entrances offer an extra level of exclusivity, and there’s not a single property that doesn’t feature impressive views of the valley below and the jagged peaks of the Gore Mountain Range and Castle Peak in the distance. Bachelor Gulch has its own ski slopes, with a chairlift that serves the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch, and trails that provide a village-to-village ski experience from Beaver Creek to Bachelor Gulch to Arrowhead. There’s also a gondola connection to the Westin Riverfront in Avon at the base of Bachelor Gulch. It’s the only residential ski neighborhood considered entirely on-mountain in the Vail Valley. While the Bachelor Gulch ski trails are part of Beaver Creek Resort, they feel much more private and less traveled. It’s easy for residents to head out for a few runs without a lot of fuss getting in and out of the resort. Ski trails offer excellent hiking and biking during the summer and fall months, and the pristine golf club in neighboring Beaver Creek features challenging holes and expansive views to round out summertime fun. Bachelor Gulch is perfect for the buyer looking for privacy and luxury. Bachelor Gulch real estate is mostly known for high-end single-family homes, but luxury condominiums and fractional units are available through the residence club at the Ritz-Carlton® Bachelor Gulch.
