Off the Hill: Your new home awaits at The Lion Vail

By Tricia Swenson | Off the Hill
The only new luxury residences built in Vail in nearly a decade, The Lion Vail is ready for you to call it home. Perched on the northern edge of Lionshead, The Lion offers 65 private residences with floor plans ranging between two and five bedrooms. Owner ski lockers, on-site storage and three levels of underground parking will be offered as well as a restaurant, fitness center, hot tub and salt-water resistance pool. The property is also pet-friendly. After years of thoughtful planning and design, The Lion took the best practices from other luxury residences and now offers the latest in contemporary finishes, lifestyle and amenities. “What we learned from properties built before ours was a need for more communal space. If we built a four-bedroom residence, we wanted enough room for that many people to gather in the living room,” said Eustaquio Cortina, the Principal and Senior Broker at Cortina Real Estate. “I toured a top architect from Mexico City who specializes in resort properties. He commented that The Lion has great spaces, great ceiling heights, plenty of natural light and first-class finishes. He loved The Lion,” said Cortina. “We had a client who bought during the blueprint stage stop in and view his new residence and he was so happy with it. He said that we had truly built exactly what we promised,” said David Campbell of Cortina Real Estate. “That’s a tremendous confirmation of everyone’s hard work, and a real proof of concept for us.” Julie Weihaupt, who rounds out the team of experienced and long-time local real estate professionals at Cortina Real Estate, said they are excited to show buyers and brokers this property in person. “The pictures and video are great, but touching and feeling the finishes gives you a better idea of the luxury.” Their sales center is on-site and tours are available.
