Celebrating The 40 th Annual Vail Mountain School

VA

Welcome to the Fortieth Annual Vail Mountain School Home Tour. We are pleased to be hosting visitors in the beautiful setting of Arrowhead at Vail once again. The surroundings for our September 18th event are even more spectacular than that of our twenty-ninth Home Tour, hosted in Arrowhead in 2000. Vail Mountain School is approaching its fifth decade as a center of learning in this Valley. The school has grown and changed significantly since it was established in 1962, which was also the inaugural year of Vail Mountain as the newest member of Colorado’s ski industry. Our school and Vail celebrate their fiftieth anniversaries next year. This year’s Home Tour features a nice blend of slopeside and golf course residences. I am sure you will find the variety of architecture, both traditional and contemporary, to be pleasing and interesting. Whether guests are visiting a condo replete with authentic western artifacts, the quintessential family home, or a skier’s getaway, this year’s Tour promises to represent Arrowhead living at its best. All event proceeds from admission, raffle ticket sales, and the Gourmet Pantry benefit the school’s tuition assistance program. We are proud of our history of providing financial aid for up to 30% of students attending the school. Our program serves boys and girls in kindergarten to grade twelve from communities as far east as Breckenridge and as far west as Gypsum. The school is college-preparatory, with a significant focus on character, citizenship, and global awareness. In addition to our academic, athletic, and arts programs, Vail Mountain School is also known for its comprehensive service to charities statewide through student and faculty volunteerism. You will find VMS students placed strategically throughout Arrowhead on the day of the Tour, helping guests as guides in the homes, serving at the Luncheon, assisting with transportation, and coordinating raffle ticket sales for over $18,000 in exciting prizes. Please feel encouraged to introduce yourself to students and ask them about the experience of growing up in a mountain community and attending Vail Mountain School. On behalf of the students, their parents, the faculty, staff, and trustees, I again extend a welcome and best wishes for a most enjoyable Tour on what we anticipate to be a colorful autumn Sunday. Sincerely,

UAL HOME TOUR

HOME TOUR Opening Doors to Homes & Providing Opportunities for Education in the Vail Valley

C

elebrating forty years of opening doors to homes and providing opportunities for education in the Vail Valley, the Vail Mountain School Home Tour is a treasured tradition. While the school has remained committed to the purpose of the Home Tour—to raise funds for financial assistance for students who might not otherwise be able to attend VMS—the venues have varied from year to year, and the Home Tour has evolved to include a raffle with incredible prizes; a Gourmet Pantry of epicurean delights; a trade show of local businesses; and new this year, a golf tournament in the afternoon. The Home Tour originated as a kitchen tour of Vail homes in 1972, the same year the school celebrated its 10th anniversary. In an effort to establish scholarships for students to attend the then-called “Vail Country Day School,” parents organized the event, volunteered their kitchens, and hosted the guests. The aromas of fresh turkey and ham wafted from the ovens, and each home was decorated in a unique theme with corresponding items for sale, including Christmas cookie recipes, “What’s Cooking in Vail” cookbooks, homemade candy, wildflower seeds, and freshly baked French bread. Guests were delighted to take a glimpse into unique slices of mountain lifestyle, and, of course, everyone wanted a peek at the rest of each home after seeing the kitchen! The full tuition for one student was raised by the inaugural Home Tour. In time, as the school grew, support for the Home Tour also increased. Home Tour committee members began adding their own unique touches to the experience. In 1975, the “Gourmet Treat” was a $2.50 luncheon with soups, breads, cheeses, wine, and specialty desserts. In 1977, a raffle was incorporated into the fundraising efforts; prizes included a Vail ski pass from the ski resort and a handmade mountain artisans quilt from Gorsuch, Ltd., two of the school’s raffle prize donors to this day.

36th Annual Tour

Elaine Kelton–one of the early “settlers” of Vail, a parent of three VMS graduates, a Home Tour chairperson, and a frequent guest on the Home Tour–shares, “The tour began at a time when everyone

For many years, the school embraced Vail as the sole backdrop of the Home Tour, and guests incorporated the event into their “Vailfest” weekend activities, which also included sporting events, street music, and a traditional European-style beer garden. As then-Mayor Paul Johnston wrote in the introduction of the 1985 Home Tour Magazine, “The village tempo in September is somewhat slower and allows one to relax and enjoy life more fully.” In 1996, when the school celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Home Tour, they “took the show on the road” to the newly developed neighborhood at Mountain Star. Since then, the Home Tour has taken place in Lake Creek, Arrowhead, Glen Lyon, Cordillera, Cordillera Valley Club, Beaver Creek, and Bachelor Gulch. The school brings the Tour back to Vail on a regular basis, providing guests access to some of the area’s finest homes and welcoming them onto campus for the Luncheon and a tour of the school. Elaine Kelton comments, “I am so pleased, as a long-standing member of the Vail Valley, to see that forty years later, the Home Tour continues to provide much needed funds to enable children who could not otherwise afford it, to attend the school, and, that forty years later, the school, its students, and alumni, remain cornerstones of the community with an ever-increasing impact on the Valley and beyond.” Next year, as Vail Mountain School celebrates its 50th anniversary, the Home Tour will once again return to its beloved village in celebration of the past, present, and future.

Presenting the Stops on

The 40 th Annual Vail Mountain School

Home Tour Arrowhead at Vail is an exclusive gated community located between Avon and Edwards, extending from the ski slopes of Beaver Creek Resort to the valley floor along the Eagle River. With both a ski area and a private golf club, many lifestyles and choices of residential options are available in Arrowhead at Vail. Golf, hiking, biking, and swimming in the summer and skiing, snowshoeing and various fitness classes in the winter are just some of the activities community members enjoy.

This year’s Home Tour includes condominium, golf course, and slopeside residences all with unique and individualized western accents; lunch at Vista at Arrowhead located within Country Club of the Rockies’ clubhouse; and a tour of Arrowhead Alpine Club, a members only club, which brings this diverse community together for social gatherings, fitness activities, and charitable events. Regardless of the season, Arrowhead at Vail has it all.

T

hey say the third time is a charm, which rings true of this log and stone ski-in/ski-out masterpiece with unparalleled views, situated on the slopes of Cresta Run on Arrowhead Mountain. The owners’ third Arrowhead home, designed around frequent visits from their two grown children and their growing families, is expertly planned and crafted. Stepping through the door, the grand entryway leads past the aspen-etched glass wall of the wine room, up curved stone stairs to an expansive living area. Almost floorto-ceiling windows overlooking the valley below maximize the breath-taking view from the living room. The space is well proportioned, with the living room partially separated by a stone fireplace that opens to the formal dining area. A bar area, with stone arches, recessed lit ceiling, beautiful sandstone counters and an intricately tiled floor, creates the atmosphere of a wine cellar, but opens to the living area. The kitchen includes a hearth room, a breakfast nook defined by a tray ceiling above, and a service kitchen. The main kitchen area boasts extensive granite countertops and an illuminated candle chandelier over the spacious center island. The hearth room has pairs of French doors on either side of the corner stone fireplace. The large porch wraps around the house joining the stone patio and hot tub outside the breakfast nook and ski storage room. Beyond the formal dining area and the watchful eyes of a large, bronze sculptured eagle, the master suite

is a private wing that includes numerous windows with expansive valley views; a generous bathroom with a large steam shower built for two; a huge walk-in-closet that leads to a private laundry room; and an office, with a woodpaneled lit tray ceiling and built-in bookshelves. When not hosting friends and family, there is no need to leave the main floor of this spectacular home. Upstairs from the main level, an exercise room, sitting room, and well-appointed bedroom suite provide a warm welcome to guests. Access through French doors leads to a patio and down steps to the hot tub outside the ski/ mud room. Throughout the home, a tasteful mix of browns and sages complement the integrated plaster walls, stained structural logs, and reclaimed wooden floors. The downstairs features a large family room comfortably furnished for conversation and camaraderie, with a beautifully lit wall of built-in bookcases and cabinets, and a long granite countertop housing a wet bar/kitchenette. Nearby, a private theatre with sense-around in the seats and a recessed galaxy ceiling offers an unparalleled at-home movie experience. The hallway continues to the pair of two-bedroom suites for the owners’ grown children and grandchildren. A pleasing mix of southwestern inspired woven fabrics accentuated by natural leathers and hides provides an inviting refuge for these young and growing families, and makes it easy to defy those who say you can never come home again.

one Pine Lodge sits high atop Cresta Road, a stately Adirondack-style structure built with lodge pole pines from the Yellowstone fire of 1988. Old world charm exudes from this rugged but expertly crafted log-framed home, filled with art and artifacts, including an inlaid wood art-case Steinway piano, Black Forest carvings, ornately framed oil landscapes, and natural fossil and semi-precious pieces. A wood-carved stampede of horses welcomes visitors to the grand living area of this sensational home. Two fireplaces define separate sitting areas divided by a formal dining room, decorated with carved wood-framed furnishings covered in natural animal hides and fabrics. Above the main fireplace mantle is an intricately carved elk herd in its mountain habitat. Built-in shelves on either side of the stone fireplace provide a gallery for a portion of the owners’ collection of mineral arts. The well-appointed kitchen has a breakfast nook, and a door that leads to an expansive stone patio, which abuts a large landscaped yard and cascading water feature with multiple falls, and seamlessly joins the natural vegetation of the gentle slope of Arrowhead Mountain. A few steps down, the patio joins an extensive deck off the living areas with unobstructed views of mountains and aspen forests, offering unparalleled entertaining options.

From the kitchen, a hallway takes you to a separate wing of the house to the master suite. An inviting sitting area lies outside the eloquent office, which has a beautiful limestone fireplace and French doors that open to the stone patio and hot tub. The master bedroom is grand, with vaulted ceilings; a floor-to-ceiling sandstone fireplace; bright, awe-inspiring views from the many windows; and access to the patio through French doors. A split-log stairway leads up from the hallway on the main floor to a guest suite, with two bedrooms, offering guests the warmth of a sandstone fireplace and the convenience of a wet bar and privacy to take in the mountaintop views. A stairway down from the main level brings you through a gallery of artwork and artifacts to a den with log beams and a classic stone fireplace. A large theatre room, painted by a muralist to depict the three seasons of Colorado, offers a unique movie experience for the owners and their guests. The three bedrooms open off the main gathering place, all with access to the outside. A fourth bedroom can be found within a marvelous guest suite, which the owners added after purchasing this already magnificent home. This suite feels like a separate cabin, with perhaps the most desirable views of all. For the owners and their guests, this home indeed is the ultimate in mountain living. Photos by M.

hen Deutschland marries Dallas, great things commence. Both a beautiful family and their uniquely stylish Rocky Mountain getaway portray the success of this union. The understated exterior of the log, timber, and mossrock Trailside residence conceals the generous space within. Through the front door, the reception area opens to the living room, which comprises multiple conversation areas defined by a harmonious combination of European antiques and contemporary Italian furniture, accessorized with a touch of Texas. The many windows aggrandize the unobstructed views of the mountains and their ridges, gently sloping into the narrow valley, covered with aspens and pines. A large round dining table, outdoor furnished deck, and counter stools offer several dining options within and adjacent to the kitchen. The unfinished edges on the matte granite countertops combined with the reclaimed wooden floors bring a casual elegance to the heart of this inviting home. A hearth room extends the warmth of the kitchen, and a color-

ful Carrie Fell painting above the mantle brightens this family gathering area. The master suite has traditional European furnishings, accentuated by beautiful silk window coverings in soft sage and auburn, with a cozy window seat overlooking the valley below. Up a split-log staircase is a loft, with a generous conversation area and office. A welcoming guest room and a large guest suite lie beyond the loft area, offering generous and secluded European hospitality. The lower level has a large, bright family room with a flat screen television, game table, outdoor deck, and an Adirondack-style wet bar. Three bedrooms, one a bunkroom that sleeps five with beds built from the trunks of small birch trees, provide enough space for the children and their friends. The intelligent floor plan and Trailside location of this vacation home perfectly suit this dynamic Euro-American family for both winter and summer visits to the Vail Valley. Photos by M.

riginally built in 1993, this home had a “roofraising� remodel in 2007, creating a loft-like feel in the main living areas of this 7,000 square foot post and beam home. Immediately upon entering, you feel the warmth created by the mix of Colorado buff stone floors, wooden beams, cedar paneling, and moss rock. The living room is furnished with a blend of soft fabrics and leather, and is open to the dining area, which has a unique wrought iron and glass cabinet along the partial wall separating the kitchen. The natural stone floor of the area continues beyond the floor-to-ceiling windowed sliders to an extensive outdoor patio with a water feature, stone fire pit, and manicured gardens. The home is nestled at the base of a gently sloping sagebrush-covered foothill, inviting morning sun and numerous wildlife visitors from the aspen grove above. Adjacent to the dining area, the gourmet kitchen has Caesar stone countertops with seating along the center island, and a warmly furnished hearth room with built-in bookcases, cedar paneled walls, and windows looking out to the patio. The master suite, decorated in soft taupe tones, is located a few steps up from the living room in a private wing,

with outdoor access to the fire circle. Vaulted, cedar-paneled walls and ceilings give warmth to this voluminous suite, which includes a spacious study with reclaimed wood floors and beautiful built-in bookcases. Opposite the master suite, generous guest accommodations include an anteroom with a writing desk, sectional couch, and flat screen television. The two bedrooms, with dark-stained posts and furnishings, provide a rich contrast to the integrated plaster walls. The vaulted, cedar paneled ceilings create additional space to these already expansive, yet cozy bedrooms with private baths. From the main level, a stone staircase leads down to a large family room, with a media area, poker and billiard tables, wet bar, and large wine room. A fourth bedroom, with a private bathroom and generously sized walk-in closet, lies beyond the billiard area. And a few steps down from the wine room, the ultimate exercise facility can be found, with full fitness equipment and a basketball/squash court, providing a unique cross-training option when skiing, snowshoeing, golfing, playing tennis, biking, hiking, and swimming in Arrowhead become routine!

his sophisticated alpine residence is ideal for summer entertaining. The sumptuous home flows to the outside with expansive stone patios and landscaped gardens situated along the fairway of the first hole of Country Club of the Rockies golf course. Across the manicured greens of the fairway are unobstructed views to the foothills of National Forest land. Through the arched entrance and past a curved staircase, an open floor plan unfolds, handsomely decorated in a neutral palate, giving prominence to the numerous antiques and wild fauna within. Timbered vaulted ceilings and a large stone fireplace draw your gaze skyward while a Greater Kudu quietly watches from the corner opposite the Swedish-made Malmsjö grand piano. The formal dining area features an antique castle door serving as the table, and sliding doors that open to the patio with a large stone fireplace plus built-in grill. From speakers both inside and outside, music delivers another form of harmony to this magnificent mountain retreat. The kitchen features reclaimed antique oak cabinetry and floors, granite countertops, and seating in the large center island. An additional casual dining area is included and located next to a third stone fireplace with a flat-screen television above the stone mantle. Numerous antique furnishings and curios tastefully accentuate the splendid design of this home. The master suite, located off the living room, includes a handsome and inviting office, with built-in bookcases and

46 • Vail Mountain School Home Tour

cabinets, as well as urbane displays of hunting trophies and replicas of dart-shot game: rhinoceros horns and a lion’s skull. The large leather-top desk in the center of the room indicates the importance of the business conducted within these four walls. The master bedroom features a grand limestone fireplace and a beautiful crystal chandelier above the sitting area by the window. The master bathroom is stunning, with polished crosscut limestone tile, numerous unique crystal chandeliers, and a shower stall cut from clear Waterford crystal. Up the spiraling stairs, two guest rooms await the owners’ children and grandchildren. The western-themed room has unique bathroom cabinets faced with tree saplings and a horse-tiled backsplash, and the European-inspired bedroom is charmingly decorated with French antique trays and majolica pottery. The lower level of this residence includes a large den with a bar, wine room, billiard table, game table, and large flat screen television built into the stone fireplace. A Gems Buck patiently waits his turn by the billiard table, while other safari friends watch from the wall. Apart from the activity, three spacious guest suites, tastefully decorated and furnished with antiques, provide comfortable sanctuaries for family and friends. This home is perfectly designed for the owners’ penchant for entertaining and active lifestyle, in both the winter and summer months of mountain living. Photos by M. Todd Thiele Photography

ome Tour guests with an interest in Western art and artifacts should plan to spend a little extra time at this three-bedroom condominium, just steps from the Arrow Bahn Lift at the base of Arrowhead Mountain. The comfortable design of this residence provides a perfect home, office, and museum for the gentleman who spends most of his time at this address. A large Bob Booth sculpture greets guests at the entrance of a long hallway, lined with Edward S. Curtis Native American photographs, leading to the main living area. The kitchen is open to the living/dining area, with a long granite counter and tooled leather seating. Hanging above is a wrought iron rack, with numerous pairs of antique spurs.

Throughout this bright space overlooking the ski lift, a multifarious assortment of antiques creates a sophisticated, masculine setting in the heart of Arrowhead Village. Included in the collection are silver-mounted saddles, boots, horse tack, pistol handles, holsters, and belts made by Ed Bohlin; racehorse trophies and memorabilia; horsehair hitches; Navajo rugs; and antique furnishings and curios. The office and bedrooms continue to display and utilize western artifacts in creative and functional ways. An old safe serves as an end table, and horns and hooves make for coat and hat hooks. All that is missing from this extensive collection is Gene Autry, singing “Back in the Saddle Again.� Photos by M. Todd Thiele Photography

estled between mature landscaping and the 11th green at Country Club of the Rockies, this westernthemed home is replete with whimsical touches to the interior and magnificent western views across the widening valley for all who enter its arched doorway. The living area is dominated by a large wall of windows, providing views all the way to Castle Peak in Eagle, and reaching to the vaulted ceiling, which is supported by rough-hewn alder timbers. A massive elk antler chandelier hangs above, with furnishings upholstered in various textured hides and a unique collection of kilim and westerninspired decorative pillows. A beautifully carved wooden mantle frames the fireplace on a raised hearth, which is central to the room. The re-claimed hickory flooring and warmstained timbers provide a rustic and comfortable feeling to this grand space. An informal dining area, partially circled by windows, leads to the kitchen. Wooden ceiling beams and a ham-

mered copper range-hood nearly hide the epicurean appliances and features of the gourmet kitchen. An understated formal dining area is nearby, with cowboy-jacket fringed chairs and rawhide lighting. The master suite lies on the opposite end of the house, with an office across from the bedroom, which boasts beautiful views, a fireplace, and access to the patio and hot tub. Ranch-style living has two meanings in this home! Upstairs are three comfortably furnished guestrooms, separated by an open walkway with a hand-wrought iron railing. Downstairs, wonderful guest accommodations include a lovely bedroom; a bunk room that sleeps six; and a large entertainment room with a media center, poker table, wet-bar, fussball table, and unobstructed western views. With no reason to leave the main floor when not entertaining guests, the owners give meaning to both uses of the phrase “Ranch-Style� in this comfortable western retreat.
