Luxury Vail Mountain Chalet with Ski-In/Ski-Out Eagle Bahn Gondola AccessOne of only four custom residences nestled in a private enclave on Vail's revered Forest Road, 615 Forest Place is a classic European-inspired alpine chalet with exclusive access to Vail Mountain via the popular Born Free ski run. Built in 2007, this residence and enclave were conceived as part of a master re-development plan for Vail's Lionshead Village including the Arrabelle at Vail Square, a RockResort with full-service spa and extravagant resort amenities. With exceptional access to skiing, snowboarding, and the Eagle Bahn Gondola, a private backyard path to gold-medal waters of Vail's Gore Creek, year-round recreation and resort village lifestyle just steps from your door, this home is indeed a rare find.Constructed with enduring Tuscan Gold natural stone and giant honed timbers, all 11,865 square feet of this seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom, three-level home's layout caters to multi-generational comfort. Although it features incredible recreational and resort access, the residence is also remarkably private. There are two wings with accompanying sets of stairs, an elevator for ease, and a substantial four-bay garage. Welcome guests through a sunny south-facing grand entrance on the main level into a traditional Great Room with magnificent views of the Eagle Bahn Gondola, Gore Creek, and the bustling Lionshead base area. In addition to enviable views, the room features a natural stone fireplace, formal living and dining areas with a full-service wet bar, and a large wraparound outdoor deck providing ample space to enjoy the exquisite location.
Adjacent to Vail Village alongside Gore Creek, Lionshead - named after a rock formation atop the mountain - also offers tremendous dining and shopping in addition to convenient proximity to the Eagle Bahn Gondola. Lionshead Village has undergone major improvements over the past decade including the development of the Arrabelle - housing a luxury hotel and condominiums as well as shops and restaurants. Lionshead, with its Alpine architecture and cobblestone streets is equally as convenient to winter and summer events and activities as well as being a charming pedestrian village.
