It’s All About The Views At This $8.9 Million Home In Avon’s Mountain Star Community

Located nearly 10 miles west of Vail, the town of Avon, Colorado is home to some of the state’s most spectacular residences. From year-round outdoor activities that range from hiking to skiing, it’s no wonder why people come from all over the world to make Colorado their second home away from home.

Sitting front and center at nature’s beauty with unobstructed mountain views beckoning just steps from your doorstep is a contemporary compound located in Avon’s exclusive Mountain Star neighborhood. The five-bedroom home’s stepless entry invites you seamlessly indoors, creating an unobstructed flow from the natural world outside to the interior of the house.

Once inside, the floor-to-ceiling windows provide for a jaw-dropping, two-story view of the mountains and nearly six-acre lot from the spacious living room. “The views are the No.1 thing about this home,” says listing agent Kathy Bellamy. “All three ski mountains can be seen, plus the view wraps to the west. It’s just amazing.”

The soaring fireplace and awe-inspiring wood detail found on the enormously high ceiling in the living room certainly make for interesting conversation pieces. The open floor plan leads to a primary suite and guest wing complete with a sitting room and two bedroom suites also conveniently located on the first floor.

Built in 2004, the sprawling 6,717-square-foot home is located in a gated community that is home to an enclave of luxury mountain retreats and also sits on a distinctive footprint. “What’s also unique about this property is that most homes are uphill or downhill, but this one is flat,” Bellamy noted. “So, you walk in and have everything on the first floor with auxiliary rooms downstairs.”

On the lower level, you will find a spacious family room with a fireplace. “There is also a workout room, a climate-controlled wine room and two more guest suites,” she said. Also located on property is an art gallery that the owner added adjacent to the house, with an additional 2,300 square feet of space with heating and air conditioning. The art gallery can be transformed fairly easily. “They have the plans if someone wanted to convert it to three bedroom suites, so if someone wanted that instead of the art gallery, they have the approved plans to do so,” says Bellamy.

The current owners are looking for a larger home to accommodate their growing family. “They have been here for many years and loved the property because it was convenient to skiing and Beaver Creek,” Bellamy said. “The view is so spectacular. You can sit and just be mesmerized by it.”
