6 Beds • 6.5 Baths • 5,614 +/- SF • $21,500,000
598 Vail Valley Dr., East Residential Condominium Unit, Vail, Colorado
With new construction becoming an increasingly rare commodity at the base of Vail Mountain, the Penthouses at Golden Peak represent a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to occupy this exquisite new development with unparalleled access to the resort and all the amenities of Vail Village, surrounded by 270 degrees of iconic Vail scenery.
With Golden Peak serving as the longtime historical training site of elite athletes, such as Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin, the likes of which frequent the Ski & Snowboard Club Vail facilities below, the Penthouses occupy hallowed ground of elite ski and snowboard development while also providing incredible access to the Golden Peak Children’s Ski School and the quickest, most direct line into the Back Bowls. Savvy locals have for years favored the combination of Chair 6 to Chair 10 to Chair 14 as the fastest powder-day route to the Back Bowls, now with high-speed lift service at every stage and immediately accessed on a ski-in/ski-out basis from the Penthouses. There simply is no faster, better way to access incredible terrain on Vail Mountain.
In the summer months, the Penthouses provide unrivaled proximity to world-class amenities and surrounding events, such as the GoPro Mountain Games, food and wine festivals, and one of the closest residential locations to the renowned Ford Amphitheater, which plays host to the Bravo! Vail Music Festival, the Vail Dance Festival, and countless other concerts and community events throughout the season. It’s just a short five-minute walk across a covered bridge and the roaring Gore Creek to arrive at the amphitheater grounds and Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.
From the main living area of the east Penthouse, wake up to jaw-dropping views of the Gore Range to the east and Vail Mountain’s Gondola One and Riva Bahn to the sunny south. The residence is surrounded on all sides by towering glass and boasts more than 2,000 square feet of outdoor living space to take full advantage of surrounding scenery and après-ski opportunities.
The residence, which is accessed on all floors by a private elevator, consists of six bedrooms (with an option to convert one into a study). There are two bedrooms on the main level, including a main level master, and four upstairs, including a second master.
An open floor plan provides a vibrant living space spanning the width of the home with a high-grade kitchen overlooking the expansive great room, lounge and dining area. Created with a mountain-modern aesthetic, the home’s primary living space is planned to feature a metal-panel fireplace, a walnut and steel open staircase, white European oak flooring, wood slat ceilings, and plush leather seating. Also, on the main level, a more casual game room and TV lounge is cordoned off from the main living space — a perfect retreat for kicking back after a long day on the hill.
Upstairs, the bedroom hallway connects several suites and overlooks the great room while peering out onto the Gore Range. A sunny, south-facing master bedroom is accented by a raw steel-plate fireplace and looks out onto Vail’s ski slopes with a spacious walk-in closet and master bathroom, which features built-in floating vanities, glass rain shower, and Lacava tub.
With ample owner storage and two dedicated parking spots in the underground garage, the east Penthouse at Golden Peak is a unique opportunity to take up residency in new construction with a perched-up perspective overlooking the Gore Range and unparalleled access to some of Vail’s most renowned amenities.
