A separate oversized 2 car heated garage is complete with ranch office and a large workshop that could also be a third bay for the car enthusiast needing to store an antique collection.
At any moment, one is able to relish the big sky vistas of Red Table Mountain and the Seven Hermits range above the beautiful valley floor of Brush Creek. And don’t be surprised to see a group of elk wonder by or cowboys herding cattle in the distance at the neighboring 10,000 acre ranch.
Whether hiking or snowshoeing out the back door, picking fresh veggies for dinner, building a wonder in the workshop, entertaining 200 hundred guests for dinner, or taking the 5-minute drive to one of Colorado’s most notable mountain golf courses, the lifestyle offered by 318 Kicking Horse Trail within the Club at Cordillera is simply extraordinary.
Cordillera is an idyllic location filled with winter indulgences but is also a year-round haven that includes three of the best golf courses in the Vail Valley and one of the best mixes of full-time residents and second homeowners in Colorado.

Within the Club At Cordillera there are three world-class golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Hale Irwin, & Tom Fazio. There is also the Beautiful David Peltz 10-hole Short Course (as it has only par 3’s and is perfect for honing your short game or playing a nice round with the family). The Short Course is included with your home ownership dues for the area.
Not only does the entire area of Cordillera enjoy diverse amenities year round, the amenities closest to this home in the Cordillera Ranch mean that you don’t even need to leave the area to enjoy, golfing, casual or fine dining, a great workout, or a day at the pool.

One of the most important aspects of this location is that it enjoys excellent proximity to the amenities of the area, including Vail & Beaver Creek Resorts, but without the impact of the interstate that often impairs so many residences in the Vail Valley. Some of the homes that sit in the higher parts of Cordillera can feel like they are far from the town center and stores, but this home is only 10 minutes to Riverwalk shopping district where you can take in a movie, shop or dine.
- Riverwalk In Edwards: Approximately 10 minutes or 9 miles (take in a movie, dine or shop in this bustling area)
- Vail Airport and Vail Jet Center: Approximately 30 minutes or 26 miles
- Vail Resort: Approximately 30 minutes or 24 miles

Many people have no idea of the vast range of options available to them in terms of seasonal or annual parking, ski lockers and the various club memberships that can make enjoying a home outside the heart of Vail & Beaver Creek a reality.
