The three Slifer Smith and Frampton listings were selected by HGTV’s editors as finalists in the Countryside Retreats category.
The first home nominated is located in Vail, Colorado and features modern, high-end finishes and plenty of space for entertaining. Listed by Paul Gotthelf, 354 Beaver Damn Road S is just a few minutes from Vail Village and all the amenities of mountain living. “The drive to the property starts the feeling of exclusivity which is reinforced by a private mountain setting and calming effect of modern contemporary design. The home gives the best of both worlds being in the heart of Vail and tucked away against the hillside. Each design element was thoughtfully executed to create a modern masterpiece.” – Paul Gotthelf, Broker Associate.
The second home nominated is located in Avon, Colorado and features the perfect combination of modern and luxury. Listed by Heather Rawlings and Bob Dorf, 104 Rabbitbrush is a 6 bedroom home with endless outdoor/indoor living spaces. “The home’s views are truly unparalleled. The kind of views that stop people in their tracks when they walk in and make them whisper “Wow.” It’s close enough to Vail, BC, and surrounding towns, but feels like you’re a world away.” – Heather Rawlings, Broker Associate
The third home nominated is located in Aspen, Colorado and features an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with views that will take your breath away. Listed by Krista Klees and Newton Bartley, 2137 Red Mountain Road sits on top of Red Mountain as the highest home on the mountain, giving it the name The Peak House. “This is an exceptional home, the grand room is 33 feet tall, and the staircases flanking the fireplace are hand-carved. When you get to the landing, there’s a big window where you can look down into the lap pool room. The outdoor pool and numerous patios create incredible indoor/outdoor living spaces with breathtaking views. Nothing will ever be built above it; this house is literally the ‘king of the hill.’” – Krista Klees, President Roaring Fork Valley
