We invite you to discover this rare Colorado legacy estate that is offered fully furnished including a luxury limo with a driver. You and your family can be dropped off and picked up from the slopes, restaurants or shopping on demand day or night. The home, already the nearest luxury large estate to the ski slopes, provides you the opportunity to enjoy all the Valley’s great amenities with the convenience of a comfortable car and driver.
Perched atop 230 acres of vast and pristine land, 1548 Via La Favorita has unprecedented and forever unobstructed 360-degree views, unparalleled privacy, and yet is remarkably close to the Vail Valley’s ski slopes and amenities: less than 15 minutes to the heart of Edwards, 30 minutes to your ski club at the Vail slopes or 35 minutes to hop a jet out of the local airport or Jet Center.
Enter your secured gate and travel up the private 1.5-mile long road, past the caretaker’s cottage and the barn (perfect for horses or additional cars and toys), the waterfall, and over the fairy tale bridge until you reach the portico into a breathtaking 7,000-square-foot courtyard.
While the main house is generously sized, the timeless architecture and authentic materials combine to create a cozy and comfortable feel. Whether inside or out, one is sure to appreciate the miles of private groomed hiking, snowshoeing, ATV and snowmobile trails.
The home’s amenities includes easy to use “smart home” technology, outdoor tennis and basketball, indoor basketball, billiards, private professional-quality cinema for the most demanding critic, 1200 bottle wine room, outdoor heated pool with pool house, miles of manicured private trails, immense exercise room, spa-quality sauna and steam room and outdoor hot-tub/spa complemented by numerous beautiful gardens and a recirculating stream and waterfall.
There is a totally separate caretaker’s house of equivalent quality to the main house, and barn with a six-person bunk room and four stalls that could house four horses (but currently holds snowmobiles, ATVs, and dirt bikes), and room for a heliport if so desired.
There is subdivision potential offering the opportunity to build another full-size estate that is not visible from the main residence including another caretaker’s residence to be used as an additional family residence or to subdivide and sell.
Address: 1548 Via La Favorita, Edwards, CO 81632
