245 Casteel Ridge is a one of a kind irreplaceable jewel at the top of Casteel Ridge. It has been professionally designed with the highest quality of finishes and furnishings along with a very unique sense of detail. Every piece of furniture, artwork, lighting, stonework & custom cabinetry has been hand selected and many times custom designed for a particular location by the designer in collaboration with master painters, carpenters & craftsmen. The interiors and exceptional view of the snow capped mountain range from every room on the main floor makes this home truly one of a kind. However, what sets it apart from all others is the million dollar outdoor marble mountain terrace entertainment area. Massive boulders climb up a private mountain lookout and spill over into 5 separate waterfalls, lazy river and a spa. A bridge crossing over the lazy river leads to a massive fire pit w/ high end & deeply cushioned (O.W. Lee) sofas revealing a nearly 360 view of the mountains, valley, waterfalls, custom bronzes, & breathtaking sunsets. After sunset, the waterfalls, lazy river, & giant boulder wall breathtakingly come alive with magical lighting and a special surprise, revealing a bronze mountain lion perched high on a boulder.
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.
