The Lofts on Eagle River

Urban living on the Eagle River in the Rocky Mountains? You bet. It’s new, it’s unique, it’s contemporary and it’s the perfect combination of city meets mountain. In fact, it’s the newest idea in Vail Valley since, well, since the chairlift.

Coming soon, the Lofts on Eagle River, is the perfect home selection for the local or sometime-local that wants that big-town chic without losing that small-town closeness and exclusive mountain living. This is a new look with a new flavor that will have locals and second homeowners grinning with anticipation. Frankly, this is going to be pretty darn hot.

The Lofts on Eagle River is a new community of 42 contemporary style lofts in four buildings located directly on the shores of the rushing Eagle River and surrounded by the splendor of the Rocky Mountains. There’s a wonderful juxtaposition long past due. The trendy loft-style living long loved by the active, young and young-at-heart in cities all across the country will now be available in the charming, growing town of Eagle. The complex is precisely placed and designed to take full advantage of the outdoor Colorado lifestyle, the wild active spirit and character of the Old West, and contemporary urban life at its coolest. Of course, you’ll be able to substitute a dirty subway system for a bike or kayak ride, and exchange the jostling hordes of strangers rushing past for the friendly faces of folks that call you by name. And the only unbridled wildness you’ll encounter is a doe and her fawn or a magnificent elk.

Built with the active contemporary person in mind, these one- and two-bedroom homes will each have the distinct look and feel of that city living, exciting, loft-look; sliding barn doors, walls that don’t extend to the ceiling promoting an open free feeling, vaulted ceilings that adds to the sensation of space, and hardwood floors.

Each home will have a deck, facing south toward the Eagle River so owners, friends and family can enjoy the melodious sounds of the rippling water, feel the mountain breeze and a view of the Sawatch Range, a view with which no city deck could remotely compete.

Each of the four buildings will be structured with the one-bedroom homes on the first floor and two-bedroom homes on the second floor. The homes will be sized from approximately 749 square feet to approximately 1,457 square feet. The two-bedroom homes will have a master bedroom loft with bath. Each two-bedroom will have two baths and each one bedroom will have one bath. All but two units of the 42 total homes will have the luxury of a one-car garage.

Each home’s open kitchens will be complete with microwaves, refrigerators, dishwashers and disposals. There will be laundry/utility rooms with the convenience of rod and shelf and options of a washer/dryer upgrade. Bedrooms will have standard plush carpet.

Strategically placed for those with an outdoor focus, the hiking and bike path runs directly along the river and directly in front of this energetic community. Walk out your door and the world of endless outdoor activity is at your feet. The quintessential fisherman’s paradise, your friends will be able to critique your casting technique from the living room. A kayakers dream, your loved ones can wave goodbye from the kitchen as you launch off-shore. Or hop on your bike for an invigorating ride along the river in the morning before work.

Eagle Ranch and its exquisite public golf course is a minute drive away. Also located in the same proximity is the new bowling alley, swimming pool, ice rink, theater, baseball park and coffee shops. The convenience of restaurants, grocery and retail shopping and services is all now available in the quaint western town of Eagle.

Ready for a little more high-profile activities? Snow ski, snowboard or cross-country ski at the world renowned resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek, a mere 20 minutes down the road. Shopping in Edwards or Vail Village is a quick drive down I-70 and even Aspen can be an afternoon jaunt. A soak in the mineral springs in Glenwood Springs is just 25 minutes from your door. And airplane travel couldn’t be easier with the Eagle County Regional Airport conveniently located as close as five minutes. What could be a more appropriate location for the active person who wants to do it all?

And let’s not overlook the weather. Due to the lower elevation, the air is thicker, the breeze is warmer, and the sun is almost always shining. Outdoor activities, yes even golf, become all but year-round activities.
