Cordillera Tour of Homes premieres July 30

Daily Staff Report

CORDILLERA – This July, Cordillera homeowners are opening their front doors in the name of philanthropy. A first for the community, Cordillera and Mountain Living Magazine have teamed up to present the Cordillera Tour of Homes July 30 with proceeds benefiting the Vail Valley Medical Foundation/Efraimson – Sutphen Cancer Support Fund (through the Shaw Regional Cancer Center) and Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.Slated to become an annual event, each year the tour will feature one of Cordillera’s four communities – The Ranch, The Summit, The Divide and The Valley Club. This year’s tour includes approximately five residences, featuring both private homes and gardens, and guests may visit these homes from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on July 30. Tours are self-guided, allowing participants to linger, ask questions and gather ideas. This year’s event takes place in Cordillera’s Ranch community, surrounding the spectacular Hale Irwin Mountain Golf Course and Cordillera’s renowned Timber Hearth Grille.”Cordillera homeowners are very involved in giving back to the community they live in,” June Vanourek, 2006 Cordillera Tour of Homes co-chairperson and Cordillera resident, said. “The home tour gives us a chance to do just that, while showcasing the talents of many premiere architects, designers and builders who had a hand in their creation. Each residence will feature the team of experts who put these dream homes together, allowing guests to ask questions and gather valuable building and design information.”Through a special 36-page insert, Mountain Living Magazine will offer a preview of the home tour as well as building tips from the architects, builders and subcontractors who worked on the featured homes in the publication’s July/August issue.In addition to the home tour, event organizers are also pleased to present “A Taste of Cordillera,” which will include unique culinary creations prepared by Cordillera’s chefs, as well as wine tasting and magnificent views of the surrounding mountains for an addition charge of $20 per person.Tickets for the Cordillera Tour of Homes are $25 and can be purchased in advance by calling the Vail Valley Medical Center Foundation at 569-7484, or through one of the following six Slifer, Smith & Frampton Real Estate offices: Bridge Street, Cordillera Divide, Eagle Ranch, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, Avon and Edwards.
