A rarity has occurred in Beaver Creek Village with the introduction of the Custom Homes on Village Walk.These elegant ski in/ski out homes perched above the village most likely represent the last new homes ever to be built in a prime village location within easy walking distance of all of Beaver Creeks many amenities. Via the adjacent Dally Ski Way, the Custom Homes on Village Walk also offer their residents direct ski in/ski out access to the Centennial high-speed lift and the 1,600 acres of skiable terrain linking Beaver Creek with Bachelor Gulch and Arrowhead villages. As if ski in/ski out access and close village proximity were not enough, Village Walk borders the rushing waters of Beaver Creek. Not only does the creek enhance the neighborhoods intimate alpine setting, it also provides a melody designed by nature to sooth away the challenges of any day. The Custom Homes on Village Walk consist of 26 unique residences, built in 13 duplex structures designed to appear as magnificent single family homes. According to co-listing broker Rick Pirog of Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, The Village Walk homes represent the perfect combination of features many Vail and Beaver Creek buyers seek. They can ski to and from each residence; they have a convenient yet very private location within the village; each home has unique views and spacious decks and patios from which to enjoy them; and each home has a perfect floor plan for large family gatherings.There are very few opportunities like this in a world class resort, he added. Yet easy access to the slopes and the village form only part of the attraction of the Custom Homes on Village Walk. Their design, features and amenities reflect the high standard of luxury for which this renowned resort is famous.To start with, the homes exteriors fully complement the European motif of Beaver Creek Village. Chalet-style dormers with heavy timber support beams, gracious stone exteriors in four different styles, and private entries with wood columns and generous window treatments all combine to create a charming, European-style mountain retreat. Gwathmey Pratt Schultz Architects, long a leader in luxury homes and residential projects in the Vail Valley, designed the Custom Homes on Village Walk. All the homes have three levels and are available with five-bedroom floor plans averaging 5,400 square feet. The developer, East West Partners, also offers three distinct interior design themes for the homes: Mountain Rustic, Mountain Modern and Mountain European. The Mountain Rustic theme features more texture and distressing while Mountain Modern utilizes cleaner styling lines and smoother textures. Mountain European offers more traditional elements, with some distressing and texture. To further customize their individual homes, purchasers have the complimentary services of an interior designer from world renowned Slifer Designs to help them choose from the multitude of finish options within each theme. Although space prohibits a detailed account of each floor plan, there are some common characteristics that apply to The Custom Homes on Village Walk. The heart of each home is a spacious Great Room with a soaring, vaulted ceiling and a series of expansive windows framing memorable alpine scenes. Residents and guests also can enjoy these views from the large heated stone deck adjoining the Great Room and dining area. The Great Room encompasses the living area, dining area and kitchen. Yet because of the rooms configuration and dimensions, each area retains its own identity. The focus of the living areaand an idyllic setting for cozy winter eveningsis an impressive floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, complete with a custom mantle and hearth. The superbly appointed kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a separate preparation area and a serving bar, offer easy access to the dining area. The luxurious master bedroom suite features a vaulted ceiling, tall and expansive windows, a generously sized seating area, large walk-in closet and a French balcony opening to the outdoors. The lavishly designed master bath boasts a whirlpool tub and separate steam shower. This is a room that invites relaxation at the end of an active day. Three guest rooms are located on the lower level (the fifth bedroom of the five-bedroom model is located on the upper level). Almost all have direct access to the private outdoor Jacuzzi.Each home also features a family room, a formal or loft office, wet bar and wine cooler, ski room, main laundry room with a second laundry area in the master bedroom suite, and a spacious two-car garage.A notable difference between the uphill and downhill models is a hearthroom in the uphill homes that allows light to flow from the front to the back of the main living level, while downhill facing homes feature oversized family rooms.Only the finest quality and exhaustive attention to detail have been incorporated into the Custom Homes of Village Walk as evident by finish choices such as hand hewed hickory floors with pegs, cherry and clear alder cabinetry, and fireplaces of Montrose Dakota stone, Flat Head moss rock and metal or cast limestone.
