REAL ESTATE & MOUNTAIN LIFESTYLES | OCTOBER 2013

utumn is upon us. As gold spreads from the mountaintops into the valleys, the shorter days and cooler nights remind us that ski season isn’t too far off. But there’s still plenty of warm-weather activities to keep us occupied: golf, hiking, biking, fishing — even backyard barbecuing. Fall is a beautiful season in the Rockies. It’s also a great time of year to work on the inside of our abodes. As one of the most important rooms in the house (some would say the very lifeblood of a home), the kitchen is a popular place to begin. From custom cabinets to dramatic lighting, there’s a world of possibilities. Check the market update section and read about our local real estate inventory. The number of available properties is increasing healthily, as are the number of sales. It’s a good time to enlist the guidance and experience of a local REALTOR®. Our organization, its members and partners exist to provide the most informed, ethical and comprehensive options for clients and their real estate needs for both primary and secondary residences as well as investment properties.

VAIL VALLEY HOME | OCTOBER 2013

There may be a comfortable seat for everyone in the living room, but why do we so often find ourselves perched on kitchen countertops instead? Whether lingering over the evening’s last glass of wine or hastily throwing together breakfast, the kitchen draws us in. Something about friends, family and sustenance truly makes the kitchen the heart of the home. With a built-in advantage like that, the kitchen could easily be one’s favorite room in the house. How do you make sure your kitchen works for you? For the expert home chef, professional appliances are a worthwhile luxury. Sub-Zero refrigeration has been a leader in the industry for over fifty years. The styles vary, but the ability to keep your food as fresh as possible remains the same. Innovations in cabinet design extend far beyond the lazy Susan these days. From the LeMan’s Magic Corner to a retractable mixer stand, see Nicole Bradford at Elegant Cabinetry & Design in Avon for the most creative and high quality kitchen solutions. Whether you consider cooking work or play, a beautiful space is a reward in itself. And with so many advances in technology, the kitchen has more options than ever to become the gathering place in any home.

National Real Estate Stats Existing home sales increased 17.2% above July 2012 numbers. Housing inventory at the end of July rose 5.6% to 2.28 million. At the current sales pace, there is a 5-month supply of homes for sale.

A solar story from the White House

1979 President Jimmy Carter had 32 solar panels installed to provide hot water.

First-time buyers accounted for 29% of purchases in July, unchanged from June, but are down from 34% in July 2012. All-cash sales comprised 31% of transactions in July, the same as in June; they were 27% in July 2012.

1986 The panels were removed under orders from President Ronald Reagan. Most of the panels journeyed north to Maine's Unity College. Sixteen were installed on the college's cafeteria to heat water; the others were placed in storage.

2003 President George W. Bush had a photovoltaic system installed on a maintenance building and two solar thermal units, which heated the White House swimming pool.

2013 President Barack Obama had solar panels put on the roof of the White House as part of an energy retrofit to improve the overall energy efficiency of the building.

Because of improvements in technology, the price of solar panels has dropped 97% since 1979.

...

The solar industry employs more than 120,000 people and generates enough electricity to power more than 1.3 million American homes.

My mother never appreciated the art I used to etch into the side of our butcher-block dining table. The knife and fork carvings made their way into memories, however, just as the meals that were served on the increasingly imperfect piece of wood. Perhaps we should’ve housed a “live-edge” table instead of our smooth shellacked rectangle — after all, cut wood

has the most character. “Live-edge wood tables have become increasingly popular over the last few years,” says Vicki Glotzer, design director of Worth Home Interiors in Vail. Glotzer explains how although some stylistic themes in interior design come and go, it’s the classics that are worth keeping. “I’m not a big fan of trend in interior design, as good fur-

niture is an investment and should last for many years in the home,” she says. What is “timeless” never goes out of style, and that’s what design firms like Studio 80 Interior Design in Eagle have in mind for your home. “We have been using dining tables with high quality craftsmanship, and each showcases the natural beauty of the materials

being used,” says Fiona Edwards, Studio 80 designer, in collaboration with Tracie Schumacher, company owner. “Our clients are leaning towards simple, elegant forms with unique, clean details. By incorporating these features, the client will have a classic, timeless piece that will coordinate with a wide range of design styles and stand as a sculptural piece of art in its own right.”

Hardwood Plank and Polished Stainless Steel Table Designer: Palacek Worth Home Interiors

This table has an organic quality, but presents sleek style with streamlined design and silver legs. The clean rectangle shape offers sophistication, while the combination of materials creates a standout modern structure for dining or living areas in the home.

Emmemboli UFO Table Designer: Ferruccio Laviani Studio 80 Interior Design

This table has a soft and sophisticated form. It incorporates a beautiful contrast of textures with an elegant oak tabletop and glossy lacquer base (it is also available in a white or black matte lacquer). The introduction of an organic and feminine shape breaks up the monotony of crisp modern angles and it has the flexibility of seating a large family for an intimate meal.

XY Table by Montis Designer: Karel De Boer Studio 80 Interior Design

This table has a clean and elegant form with great lines and sexy detail. The tabletop narrows towards the end and showcases the natural beauty of its American walnut (or solid ash) finish. The XY refers to the table legs — when viewed from the front, it appears to be an X, and from the side it looks like a Y.

Live-Edge Table Designer: Century

Studio 80 Interior Design

Worth Home Interiors

B&B Italia launched this beautiful marble version new for this year. For those who want to make an extravagant statement in their dining room, this is the piece. Its stunning sculptural qualities and rich marble finish are both artistic and refined.

These rustic yet contemporary pieces bring a true sense of “mountain modern” to the table. Live-edge guarantees authentic appeal, since every cut is all its own. Glotzer says this wood style should always be sourced locally to ensure that the wood has acclimated correctly — otherwise it can crack and split from extreme weather.

The Brightest Bulb The time is now for planting bulbs such as tulips, daffodils and more

N

Now that fall has arrived — and nighttime temps are in the 40-degree range — bulb-planting season is officially here! Before buying your bulbs, think first about wildlife. Gardeners complain more and more these days that rabbits, deer, elk and voles are chomping at the bit to chomp their bulbs. Fortunately, there are some things you can do aside from renewing your hunting license, to protect fall-planted bulbs.

Protection

Bluebells These blue blooms are another option for Colorado as low as Zone 4.

20

VAIL VALLEY HOME | OCTOBER 2013

Daffodils Common in Colorado and generally easy to grow. We usually think of their cheery yellow color, but they also come in shades of white, orange, pink and red.

Grape hyacinth Grows up to 8 inches and besides blooms in grapey purple, it also has blue, white and yellow flowers..

Allium Blooms appear as an exotic-looking globe of small flowers perched on top of a long stem. The large and tall purple globes are common, but the flowers also grow at varied heights and colors that include white, pink and yellow.

Placing chicken wire or pea gravel over bulb beds can help deter voles and other wildlife from digging up your bulbs.

More bulb-planting tips

• Plant bulbs at a depth that's 3 times their height. Small bulbs like crocus must be planted shallower than bigger bulbs like tulips. • Plant with the pointed end of the bulb facing up. If you can't tell the top from the bottom, plant the bulb sideways and Mother Nature will send shoots up and roots down. • Add an amendment at the time of planting. Garden centers have specially formulated products that provide nutrients bulbs need as they develop. • Recycle leaves as winter mulch for the bulb bed. Experienced gardeners guarantee you will be impressed with the results. • Plant bulbs in groupings rather than single file in rows. Bulbs planted in a group create more visual impact when they bloom. And you can speed up the planting process, too, by digging a wide, round hole or rectangular trench and placing many bulbs in it at once. This method is faster than planting bulbs one at a time with a bulber tool.

If you're a Bronco fan

Freshen up your patio for fall

make a porch container of pansies in team colors.

Mornings are nippier, and we're ready to see the colors of the new season on our porches and around the patio. The last week of September and first week of October are generally the best weeks to freshen the containers and beds with brilliant fall color. The nighttime temperatures are much cooler and there are fewer hours of daylight. With the hot days of summer behind, plants can now settle in without heat stress and their roots can take off to get set for winter. Pansies and violas are the standbys of fall flowers and for good reason. They are hardy enough to bloom throughout the fall and even during the winter. Best yet, they'll be back early next season with bright spring color.

22

VAIL VALLEY HOME | OCTOBER 2013

• Use a bright orange or blue container. • Fill it with team-colored pansies • On Bronco Sundays, poke in the team banner attached to a stick or dowel and show your support. Other great fall bloomers are aster and mum. Find your favorite colors ranging from lavender and purple to soft and brilliant yellow to rust and bronze. Most asters and mums are perennials you can plant this fall and enjoy for years to come.

The Leaves Don't forget foliage for fall combos Foliage adds drama when included with flowers because of the deep shades and texture that make these primarily foliage plants distinctive. Incorporate ornamental kale, sedum, coral bells and ornamental grasses into containers and beds alike. The deep hues and texture of the foliage will backstop flowering plants and make the colors pop.

A Neighborhood of ‘Neighbors’ Homestead perches on the hill with a crisscross network of trails, open space and single-family homes. By kathy filgo Photography by Carly Hoover

Since its first home sale in 1983, the community of Homestead has been attracting residents with its variety of single-family and multi-family homes, beautifully maintained on winding streets spotted with pocket parks and generous amounts of open space. Friendly neighborhoods find kids and adults of all ages enjoying a relax-

ing bike ride on the quiet streets or an invigorating hike up the mountainside on the hundreds of miles of interconnecting trails. With approximately 835 residences and more than 400 acres of open space, Homestead presents a friendly, family-oriented neighborhood with the celebrated Homestead Court Club at the heart of the community.

Homestead Court Club, known throughout the valley for its multitude of amenities and programs, is a perk that all Homestead residents share. Recently remodeled, this pride of the community not only offers something for everyone’s interests, but it is within walking distance of most residents. Sunrise yoga can begin your day or try some

vigorous laps in the swimming pool. Spend your lunch break battling it out on the racquetball courts or the indoor and outdoor tennis courts. Maybe some cross-training on the multitude of exercise equipment at the end of the day is more your speed. For some additional competitive action there are basketball and sand volleyball courts located

to the Court Club. Homestead has an abundance of open space as well as several pocket parks. The Homestead soccer field and park hosts many an exciting game and Heritage Park Playground and Park DeClark also see a lot of action. All of the parks boast new equipment within the last five years. And perhaps some of the biggest, most welcomed news in the Homestead community is the Ea-

gle County purchase of a 160-acre parcel of open space, a portion of the Scudder/Webster Ranch, located between the Homestead and Creamery Ranch subdivisions. The parcel is an exciting addition to a community that prides itself on the sense of openness its neighborhood captures. The convenient location to the attractions of Edwards and Riverwalk in Edwards is also a true appeal of the Homestead area. Groceries, restaurants, movie theater, retail shops, services and so much more carry great value for residents with this kind of quick access from their homes. Forgot the milk? It’s just a five-minute drive to the store. Feel like taking in a film? You need not plan a long commute into your schedule. Or just want to grab a latte on the run? Heading to Edwards from Homestead can be faster

than making your own. And, of course, the ski slopes of Arrowhead and Beaver Creek are just down the road as well. It’s easy to see the great appeal of the Homestead area. This attractive community enjoys a close-knit culture with a lot of treasured open space. The exceptional Homestead Court Club provides the opportunity to meet your neighbors and enjoy common interests. Homestead isn’t just a neighborhood — it's a community of neighbors.

There is an emphasis on organized activities for kids at the Court Club. As kids head back to school many are taking experiences and skills learned from the Court Club’s Clubhouse for Kids or Adventure Out Camp programs. The clubhouse also plays host to a variety of neighborhood family events such as the annual Easter Party complete with Easter egg hunt, or the annual End of Summer Party and BBQ. Tracy Erickson, general manager, says, “The focus here is on family and I think the Court Club is something that draws people to this neighborhood.” The Court Club will be fully remodeled in the near future.

Home Sales Are Up Vail Valley real estate trends correspond with national statistics

A

As existing homes sales nationwide continue to rise — U.S. sales were up 6.5 percent July over June, according to the National Association of REALTORS® — so do existing home sales in the Vail Valley. July reports produced by the Vail Board of REALTORS® (VBR) indicate that existing home sales locally spiked 14 percent over July 2012. Colorado sales were also up 15 percent statewide. “Overall, we continue to receive more positive data with regard to the Vail Valley real estate market,” says Julie Retzlaff, chairperson of the VBR. “As the national market

38

recovers, we see corresponding recovery in our local market.” The Vail Valley real estate market is traditionally viewed as having two distinct market segments. The first segment is made up of primary residences occupied by people living full-time in the Vail Valley and generally outside of Vail Village, Beaver Creek and some of the area’s golf course communities. The second distinct segment is that of resort residences which are owned by people who spend only part of their time in the Vail Valley. “It’s difficult to describe the local market in general terms,” says Mike Budd, area REAL-

TOR and incoming Chairperson of VBR. “The primary home market, broadly characterized as homes valued up to $1 million, is stable and trending upward, much like the national market. The resort market, however, has been slower to recover and seems to still be seeking stability.” A key differentiator between the primary and resort markets right now is inventory. Though new listings are increasing in the primary market, the available inventory remains low, creating further demand for homes that are available to purchase. In the resort market, however, the available inventory is more

saturated, creating what might be characterized as more of a “buyer’s market” in that sector. “The primary market is made up of people who ‘need’ a home and traditionally borrow money for the purchase,” says Budd. “If you need a home, now is a good time to buy because rates are low and deals can still be found. In addition, if you need to sell an existing property in order to buy your next home, inventories are moving.” Some speculate that transactions in the resort market, which have traditionally been more “cash deals,” have been fewer because of the returns that investors

VAIL VALLEY HOME | OCTOBER 2013

Ever since open floor plans have become popular kitchens have drawn more and more attention — and interesting design elements — in homes. They tend to be the heart of the home, where both family and friends come to meet and share stories. “Kitchens have energy to them, and that is what we all want to gravitate to,” said Ken Jones at Thurston Kitchen and Bath. “It’s because the energy is there.” One of his observational tests simply involves watching people go into a living room, where, as they sink into comfortable sofas, the energy level goes down, but as soon a they enter the kitchen, the energy level rises. “It’s more fun to socialize there, it’s more fun to drink there, it’s more fun to eat there. (Whether it’s) the high energy

with lighting, or warmth, it’s situated to be social,” he said. “(That’s why) we want to open it up to great rooms … there’s something magnetic about it; we want to gravitate to it.” Perhaps part of it is because the best food is made with love and appreciation for family and guests, and that radiates from the kitchen. In fact, Jones points out that the range is usually a focal point of a kitchen — located on a prominent wall “in the heart of the kitchen,” he said. “We tend to make them warm and vivacious,” he said. “The more inviting you can make that focal point, the more inviting it makes it to (people) who want to be around that energy.” Kim Toms, project manager at Slifer Designs, agrees that it’s “very important (for the kitch-

en) to be open to living spaces. “Open is key if you want to just keep it simple and still be very family oriented.” Of course, all kitchen design elements differentiate according to personal preferences. But there are certain trends experts in the field see these days. Appliances Beginning with ranges, the actual appliance itself has improved in leaps and bounds in terms of safety, if people go with induction ranges. “It’s very efficient, and cold to the touch, so there are no safety issues,” said Bob Zeltman, a designer at Thurston, who has seen a demonstration where a professional cut a pan that was frying an egg in half, and the part of the egg that landed on the


induction range surface stopped cooking, while the other half continued to fry in the pan. However, homeowners still tend to rely on gas ranges, just because that’s what they’re used to; induction cooking hasn’t completely caught on, he said. Viking and Wolf ranges still hold the gold star in terms of professional ranges — and they offer induction ranges. Thurston also sells its share of La Cornue, a French line, which Zeltman calls “the utmost in design and beauty, with a tremendous look.” Ranges vary in size and performance, from 30-60 inches, with one or two ovens. To truly draw attention, ranges call for creative surroundings, including interesting hoods. In terms of hoods, Zeltman still sees stainless steel popularity, as well as copper and

stucco with tile finishes. Surroundings can be simple or elaborate, from sleek tile to ornate Old World stone enclosures. Like size, the decorative surrounding strongly depends on the homeowner’s taste — so to speak. Like the improvement in ranges, appliances have also become streamlined; “they sit better rather than sticking out — they’re very flush,” Jones said. Overall, they tend to be stainless steel or covered in wood panels that match cabinetry — “hardly anything else,” he said. And, in the vein of “hiding” appliances, it’s becoming more and more popular for homeowners to place microwaves in pantries and use steam

Cabinets Open shelving is very popular these days in cabinetry. For vacation homes, it allows visitors to find dishes and glasses easily, without rifling through doors. For homeowners, it’s a potential way to showcase beautiful china and glassware. Toms and Jones see different trends when it comes to color and style of cabinetry: Toms is seeing more white cabinets, which pay tribute the farmhouse look, offering a lighter, cleaner and brighter look than darker cabinets. “Especially where we live, you see so much stain, so maybe it’s a relief,” Toms said, adding that “in any publication right now, a lot (of cabinets) are white.” Jones, on the other hand, says the hottest colors are darker grays and taupes — and even black. “Mid-range taupe and gray are very popular,” he said. “You’d be surprised at how many we’ve done … I haven’t seen much in the way of white.” Many homeowners are turning away from the distressed, mountain look and going for a

“Open is key if you want to just keep it simple and still be very family oriented.”

ovens for most of their needs. “They don’t want to see microwaves,” Toms said, “(whether or not it’s the) perception that they’re not good for your body; they still want to use them, but they don’t want to see them.”

more sophisticated, sleek look. Both designers agree that the contemporary, sophisticated look is still very fashionable. They also agree that innovative hardware is both more available and the way to go. Toms prefers integrat-

ing hardware so that it’s not decorative, but rather blends well with the cabinets. Jones said, in terms of hardware, there are “a lot of interesting ways to go,” from brasses and chromes to contemporary shapes that come in an array of sizes. In the past, most hardware only came in a size or two, but now the same family, or type, of pulls and handles will accommodate a large handle for a dishwasher and even larger for the refrigerator, while accommodating smaller, matching pulls on drawers and cabinets. Countertops When appliances allow it, Toms sees homeowners choosing higher countertops, up to 38 inches, rather than 36. She sees a lot of white countertops, saying “white is really big,” while Jones points out that countertops come in “any number of resins and quartz mixes and lots of colors.” One of the problems with desiring white countertops is that if homeowners want a natural material, marble is a porous slab, requiring everyday caution in terms of staining, as well as annual sealing. However, these days, manufacturers use higher quality sealers, Toms said. She suggests honing or weathering the slab so people don’t see every mark and smudge on marble. Jones added that many homeowners choose honed, satin and leathered (textured) finishes on quartz countertops, which helps camouflage stains. “Quartzite is harder than granite and still looks great,” Toms said, adding that composite stones are not her favorite because she worries they may look dated, like Corian has.

kitchens

Though granite still reigns, quartz countertops are gaining in popularity. When cabinets are dark, countertops should be light.

Still, Jones says he’s seeing a lot more man-made products than before. They’re often preferable because they come in standard sizes and are tough and durable, like stone, but wear better. Whereas Corian was soft and scratched relatively easy, on these quartz-and-resin mixes, “the wear and tear is much less,” he said. And, since quartz countertops have been used for years in homes, “the higher-end client wants to use something else,” he said. In terms of color, Jones contrasts countertops with cabinets; darker cabinets call for lighter countertops, and vice versa. Flooring Flooring is one of the most important design elements to ensure it flows with the entirety of the home, but it also follows the colors of the kitchen. In white kitchens, Toms uses a lot of oak, because “you can make oak look like anything, and if you go

lighter, it doesn’t show dirt or dust as much as a darker floor.” Jones matches flooring with the darker gray and taupe colors he finds popular. Overall, floors are trending away from browns and more toward neutral, gray tones, he said. And, if homeowners aren’t sure about wood floors, “there are a lot of really interesting wood-tone tiles,” he said, “and a lot more rich, vibrant wood tones than there used to be.” Lighting Generally speaking, a nice combination of down lighting, hanging lights and under-cabinet LEDs are great in kitchens, Jones said. “It’s pretty similar (to the past), but it’s being done better because lights are getting better and better,” he said.

Toms tends to avoid pendants over islands, just because they’ve been installed in so many homes. She leans more toward one decorative, possibly pendant, light with multiple off-shoots, or simply

both task lighting and more subdued entertaining. Overall design Just like open floor plans still maintain their desirability, so, too, do islands.

Kitchens have energy to them, and that is what we all want to gravitate to.

architectural lighting, which blends in with the ceiling. “Recessed cans are good,” she said, adding that they should all be dimmable, for

“(We) treat islands as a more central place of the house,” Jones said. “They’re workable, and sociable, so everyone’s going to be around the kitchen.”

He likes to create islands that can fit as many people as possible, just like Toms prefers curved islands, so that family and friends can see each other, rather than feeling as though they’re sitting at a straight-lined bar. Toms also steers homeowners toward single-level islands, since “we’ve seen two levels for so long to hide the kitchen sink,” she said. She also said it’s nice to integrate a work or desk area for women’s bills, purse and iPod dock into the kitchen. But, no matter how homeowners design their kitchens, the fact remains that a kitchen is one of the most important places in the home. “The popularity of kitchens is growing,” Jones said. “It’s the place we all congregate.”

Emerald green fairways roll past sapphire blue ponds and then rise to sage-laden mesas with vistas that spread for miles and the interesting demands of the course bring golfers back again and again. Unlike the private golf club days, the new focus is a spotlight on junior golf at Gypsum Creek Golf Course. Colorado PGA Golf is in many of the local school programs and in the spring of every year hundreds of local school children are introduced to the game of golf. “We love kids,” says Tom Buzbee, PGA Professional/ General Manager. “They are the future of the game. We are giving back to the game and Gypsum golf has one of the strongest kids' programs in the state. We welcome new players as well as those who are serious — we love the mix. It’s all about fun.” “We are serving the entire community with this program and taking it back to the grassroots level,” Buzbee adds.

tennis courts which also are also are open to the public. Wintertime activities center around the golf course where neighbors can be seen on the snow-covered fairways Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Vail and Beaver Creek ski resorts are a short drive away.

Also nearby is the Eagle County Regional Airport and Jet Center, making air travel an effortless undertaking for both full-time and seasonal residents and guests. The upper bench at Cotton Ranch, Sky Legend, is 110 acres located on the hillside of terraces overlooking the manicured greens of the golf course and surrounds several of the holes on the course. There are quiet cul-de-sacs and a network of walking paths with many homesteads backing onto BLM land. The Cotton Ranch residents describe the community as "close-knit" with a majority of the residents full-time. The elementary and middle schools are within walking distance so there is a strong, young family presence in the area. And with shopping and amenities of the metropolis of Glenwood Springs a 25-minute drive, the area of Cotton Ranch provides a plethora of distinct advantages for residents and a beautiful community that continues to get better and better.
