House of the Day: 'Sound of Music' Views in Vail Village


Oh, Vail. With your sweeping vistas of the Gore Mountain Range and your sprawling homes all sporting flawless European craftsmanship and impeccable detailing, you're almost infuriatingly perfect.

Take this immaculate, 11,771-square-foot European masterpiece in the heart of Vail Village, for instance. Newly listed for $18.5 million, the home is the epitome of classic Colorado luxury with breathtaking "Sound of Music" views.

The six-bedroom home features a library, a "dramatic" indoor pool and spa, a game room with fully equipped bar, outdoor heated terraces and a soaring great room boasting spectacular views of the Gore Range. Though it may feel like you're hidden deep in the Colorado wilderness (or in the Austrian Alps), the house is actually mere steps away from all the restaurants and offerings of the bustling Vail Village.

Caroll Tyler from Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate has the listing.
