Experience the best of Vail Valley without ever leaving home from the majestic, Casteel Creek Retreat – a 439-acre mountain retreat, privately nestled between the town of Edwards, Beaver Creek Ski Resort, and the prestigious Vail Mountain Club. Bordering 1.5 miles of wilderness and backing to breathtaking open space, you’ll enjoy two million acres of White River National Forest at your disposal, met by snowcapped views of the Gore Range without a single rooftop in sight!
Meticulously appointed and maintained, the retreat affords a life without compromise, a place where grand entertaining, ultimate privacy and convenience are paramount. A scenic drive through mountain forest culminates at the impressive castle-like estate, boasting a dramatic $1,000,000-bridge to set the tone on arrival. Inside, an artful Chihuly chandelier sparkles through towering windows, welcoming guests to a spectacular mountain setting of the highest order.
The 32,000-square-foot main house is an architectural wonder – clad in copper, steel, glass and stone. Featuring curated finishes, such as imported flamed Vyara granite and exotic marbles. All structures and living quarters come fully furnished with designer touches throughout. Rustic elegance is on full display in the home, which affords eight en suites, elevators, home theater, luxurious swimming pool, hot tub, exercise facility, spa and on-site nanny guest suite. Additional structures include a caretaker’s home, two stand alone Wild West themed guest suites, an additional guest suite, three fully equipped and furnished guest houses and one historic, primitive cabin totaling 13 extra bedrooms outside of the main residence. There is also an ice cream parlor and an authentic replica of the Silver Dollar Saloon. The ability to build up to five additional homes adds versatility and room to expand.
Perfect as a family or corporate retreat, the property can easily and comfortably accommodate 40 or more overnight guests, who will be treated to unbelievable world-class amenities. Among these are 12+ miles of groomed paths for snowmobiles, cross country skiing, horseback riding, hiking and biking. The offering also includes 12 high performance snowmobiles complete with suits, helmets, boots and riding gear, in addition to three ATVS. The stocked trout pond is a huge hit, as well as the shooting range, tubing-sledding hill, soccer field and huge indoor arena for tennis, baseball and basketball. Together with the main house, this property boasts 21 bedrooms and 34 bathrooms.
A massive 25,000 square-foot recreation building features a five-story rock climbing wall, elevator, full kitchen, authentic teppanyaki bar, fully equipped guest suite, exercise rooms, spa, Olympic size lap pool, and hot tub add to the experience. Touring snowcat is equipped to accommodate 10 people, coupled by an incredible German snowplow which clears driveways with ease.
Although it is privately secluded and secure, getting to the retreat couldn’t be easier with year-round access from a county-maintained road. The property sits just a short distance from Eagle Airport, which will accommodate any size jet. Several on-site locations are available for helipad.
The retreat is fully staffed with a caretaker, assistant caretaker-handyman and housekeeper, all of whom are full-time employees. Extensive water rights, on-site gas station for self-sufficiency, exemplary craftsmanship and unparalleled design make this a one-of-a-kind, turnkey offering, set amidst an unspoiled mountain landscape. Membership to Vail Mountain Club is available ($250,000). For the consummate host or mountain enthusiast, few properties compare.
