Why do more people come to the Colorado Rockies every year and never leave? What draws families from around the country – around the globe – to our happy valley? What is the point of living in the mountains?
Breathtaking scenery, clean alpine air, epic adventures just outside your door, endless year-round activities, world-class cultural events, no maddening crowds, no hours of traffic or pollution, 300+ days of sunshine, thousands of acres of wilderness to explore, friendly communities…all of these are reasons people choose call this area home.
And for those looking for the perfect home in the center of it all, a new contemporary eco-friendly community has come to fruition. Imagine driving into a private gated enclave perched on a bluff, surrounded with exceptional views of Castle Peak, Red and White Mountain, and the glorious Eagle River. You live in true luxury amidst the wild with exceptional energy efficiency and green-built with sustainable materials. Every ECOBUILD certified home at The Pointe features a variety of textures referencing the surroundings in a sophisticated architectural language including ledge stone, sustainable cedar siding, solid alder trim and UV-minimizing windows. Each residence has either four or five bedrooms, over-sized two or three-car garages, family rooms, private offices, optional solar panels and is steps from the private walking path connecting you to the vibrant town center of Riverwalk. Homes feature spacious exterior decks to take in the stunning sunsets and entertain, and generous walk-in closets to house your mountain modern wardrobe. Open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas offer sweeping views of the western valley and ample space for the family. Kitchen’s feature Viking or Wolf appliances and Ceasarstone countertops with contemporary high-end finishes. The living and dining areas include a wet bar and wine room, as well as a secondary wet bar in the family room, ideal for guests. All homes are air conditioned and include extra insulation to ensure low-cost comfortable living.
From your home at The Pointe, you are only a five-minute drive to skiing Beaver Creek Mountain via the Arrowhead Chair Lift, a short stroll to the center of Edwards and the many dining and shopping options the town has to offer, and only minutes more to Vail and Beaver Creek. Or just relax and enjoy the phenomenal fishing along the mighty Eagle River just below.
What is the point of living in the mountains? Living.That’s The Pointe.
