1518 Spring Hill Lane, Vail
Nestled in the Vail Golf Course neighborhood and up against National Forest is this turn-key, 4-bedroom / 5-bathroom alpine escape.
Built by Scott Turnipseed, this home is used by the owners only two months out of the year and never rented. Everything in this impeccable home seems brand new.
The sun-splashed open living and dining area is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors. Warm and inviting upon entry, the timeless oak floors flow through the main floor, Knotty Alder wood envelopes you from the trim to the railings and the character of the Cyprus beams denote the customization found throughout the entire home. The homeowner is an interior designer by trade and the unique mix of materials punctuate her talent. From braided leather inserts on the railing, a dry-stack stone facade & encased staircase create a natural divide amongst the rooms to the custom arched curtains made in Mexico to match the windows in the master bedroom. Open your French doors to let nature in and enjoy your elevated porch day and night off the main living room.
A fully equipped William Ohs kitchen and adjacent hearth room enforces the homeowners' focus on family and friends. The centerpiece island with a low-maintenance Caesarstone countertop is large enough to prep a big meal while the bar stools allow for your guests to keep you company. Fully integrated appliances with custom-stained, wood panels match the cabinets creating a seamless transition within the space making it appear even larger. A Wolf oven, Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer will ensure that even the most discriminating chef will be duly satisfied. When coming home to après or relax from a day on the slopes you are surely to find everyone here in the heart of the home.
All four bedrooms are en-suite and conveniently accessible by the home's elevator. The top-floor expansive master suite has a beautiful view of the Gore Range with the bathroom and walk-in closet a sanctuary in your mountain home. Next to the suite is an opportunity for an additional laundry facility favorable for the three upstairs bedrooms. Downstairs, an additional bedroom allows guests complete privacy with a separate access door from the heated carport just passing through the oversized garage, ski storage, laundry room and mudroom.
This home is situate just off the paved Gore Valley Trail that connects to Vail & Lionshead villages. This multi-use path goes as far as into Summit County to the east and to the Eagle Valley Trail to the west. With close proximity to world-class skiing, biking, golfing and fishing there is no better place to create lasting family memories than among the quaking leaves of the Aspen trees.
