In the gated community of Mountain Star, high above Avon, Colorado in a sea of native sagebrush and aspen trees, 587 Paintbrush is the epitome of modern, Tuscan hillside chic with sweeping views of the ski mountains of Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch and the beautiful Eagle River Valley. This six-bedroom, eight-bath, 10,428 square-foot Scott Turnipseed designed residence features two wings within a clean, elegant, spacious and functional design. Enter the main level to the home’s showstoppers, one being the Great Room, an open living space with vaulted European (Swiss)-sourced old timbers, exposed steel beams, a natural stone wall hearth, and floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase an incredible mountain landscape. From this exclusive mountaintop location be unendingly amazed by unparralelled views of the ski runs on Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch with the peaks of the Sawatch Range rising up behind them. Step outside of the main living area to an extraordinary multi-level outdoor living space where the views continue beyond Avon to Vail’s Game Creek Bowl in the east and Castle Peak in the west.
And, if the Great Room doesn’t completely steal your heart, walk into the next showstopper, the adjacent kitchen and dining area that is simply the ultimate, whether for the home gourmet or for prepping for grand entertaining. The professional range is surrounded by prep areas featuring surfaces and back splashes of dark Brazilian soapstone with light, book-matched veins. Two extra- large islands complete the work areas and are topped with white marble slabs with dark veins. The kitchen and dining areas are set in another soaring, open space with the same European-sourced timbers. For outdoor dining and entertaining, open the grand French doors on either side of the dining room hearth and go out to a grand open-air porch, also with vaulted ceilings and in-floor heating. This wonderful area of the house, the kitchen and its dining areas, exemplifies the finest aspects of contemporary style and ageless charm.
Subtle yet spectacular, the east wing Master Suite features views from the back bowls of Vail Mountain to the Village of Beaver Creek and its dozens of ski trails. The palatial master bath is designed with a double-sided Carrara marble vanity island surrounded by custom cabinetry, a dual showerhead, book-matched marble encased shower, and a sumptuously deep tub. The secondary master suite commands the home’s west wing and features a similarly delightful combination of materials. A hidden gem of this estate is an authentic wine cellar that was sized to hold 10,000 +/- bottles … with more than 5,000 bottles in racks and bins in the main room with an adjoining room for case-stacking an additional 5,000+ bottles. The cellar is carved 20 feet down into the mountain allowing for consistent mid-50 degree temperatures and ideal humidity year-round without any need for mechanical support.
Residence highlights include a porte-cochere opening to the auto court and four garage bays, gym, office, video room, and lower level access to the outdoor living area and hot tub. Unmistakably modern, the elegant design of 587 Paintbrush is mountain luxe yet relaxed with a thoughtful mix of materials and furnishings that will provide the most satisfying and uniquely personal home in the mountains.
