If you strive to find a truly majestic Cordillera mountain home with extraordinary views, look no further than 73 The Summit Trail. Completed in 2008 by Meadow Mountain Homes, this 6,697 square foot residence resides on a .98 acre home site just above the main Summit athletic center with its tennis courts, fully equipped gym and Olympic sized pool. Appreciation of the massive, panoramic Gore Range views begins at the two-story dry stacked stone entry where it becomes immediately obvious that the masons chose the stone in the home to match the surrounding hills. The views expand from the entry across freshly re-finished hickory floors and through the vaulted great room with its commanding floor to ceiling dry-stacked fireplace. Watch the evening alpenglow turn the peaks pink while creating delicious dishes in the gourmet kitchen fitted with Wolf, Sub-zero, Asko and Meile appliances tucked between luxurious alder wood cabinets provided by Cutting Edge Cabinet Makers of Leadville, CO. Over 1,000 square feet of main level deck space invite outdoor entertaining, or simply bask in the morning sun as it rises in the eastern sky. Four distinct sleeping areas and a large family room provide coveted privacy and fun gathering space when the home bursts with family and guests, yet the main level living area with its private master suite feels cozy and intimate when only two might remain at home. Special features include an oversized three car garage, a cascading summer water feature, a DaVinci synthetic roof and Eagle County's 2008 award for energy efficient building.
Within one community, there are perhaps more amenities than anywhere else in the Eagle Valley. If Vail and Beaver Creek weren’t 25 minutes and 15 minutes away, respectively, residents wouldn’t have many reasons to leave Cordillera. Cordillera offers three 18-hole golf courses — at 7,200, 8,200 and 9,200 feet in elevation — community pools, tennis and pickleball courts, a 10-hole Par 3 golf course, stocked fishing ponds, and gorgeous hiking and biking trails. An equestrian center and working ranches keep the area’s ranching heritage in the spotlight, while snowshoeing and cross-country skiing warm things up during winter months. This single-family home community offers enclave residences from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet, as well as custom homes of all sizes. Vacant land ranges from 1 to 35-acre parcels, with pricing that arguably offers some of the valley’s biggest bang for your buck. Prices range from $800,000 for an enclave, single-family home to $6 million for a large home with acreage. Vacant lots start around $75,000, while the sweet spot for available homes is roughly $1.5 million to $2.5 million. There are 7,200 acres bordering U.S. Forest Service lands, as well as 3,000 acres of open space. Active wildlife corridors mean you’ll share space with deer, elk, fox, redtail hawks, owls and more, and the location up and away from Interstate 70 brings peacefully quiet seclusion. Buyers looking for privacy and quiet views who also appreciate outdoor recreation can find the perfect balance in Cordillera — away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to easily get into Vail and Beaver Creek. The Trailhead family facility offers an outdoor pool, jacuzzis, slide pools, a playground and day camp. Two restaurants offer delicious dining options for those times when you just don’t want to head into town. With countless amenities, expansive views, wide open spaces and beautiful homes, it’s easy to understand why many residents might never feel like leaving.
