Classic Modern Entertainer’s Haven Overlooking Dramatic Mountain Landscape
Tucked away in a dense forest of quaking aspen, high above Avon, Colorado in the exclusive Mountain Star neighborhood, 1268 Paintbrush will excite your senses with breathtaking views unlike any other in the Vail Valley. This six-bedroom, eight-bath, 8,590 square-foot residence is a mastery of classic modern design by KH Webb Architects with a complimentary mix of materials and an innovative layout that highlight its exceptional mountainside location. From any vantage point in this truly private residence, not a single residential or commercial structure obstructs the sensational scenery of the protected Buck Creek Gulch below and the White River National Forest to the east. It’s the kind of ultimate privacy that is talked about yet rarely found.
Designed for the contemporary entertainer, the main level offers a variety of versatile vignettes for inviting conversation and elevated gatherings. The main level open-concept floorplan features an intimate formal dining room adjacent to a sumptuous living area that effortlessly flows into a larger great room, secondary dining room, and professional kitchen with top quality appliances including Thermador and SubZero. The two fluid entertaining areas are connected by an elegant two-sided fireplace and showcase 270 degrees of expansive views through floor-to-ceiling windows. In true modern style, the great room conveniently links to an outdoor living space through a wall of Weiland glass doors that open with zero-threshold simplicity.
Throughout the home, organic patterns add a warm and inviting touch to the clean design aesthetic. Exquisite handpainted wall paper, reminiscent of large-scale inkblot or Rorschach interpretations, in the main level powder room is repeated in the grand marble spa shower of the master bath. It’s subtle yet exciting to behold. The master suite offers more sensational views, a descreet deck, and a comfortable secondary office. In a time when work-from-home spaces are essential to contemporary living, this delightful office with exhilarating views is equally desireable and indespensible. The master bath is nothing short of a spa experience with the aforementioned marble shower, a deep soaking tub, double-sided vanity, and an abundance of tranquil woodland views in this secluded personal retreat.
Also located on the main level is another spacious and useful home office with vast south-eastern views of Beaver Creek and the Sawatch range. A rustic wood barn door provides office privacy and design finesse to the immense naturally lit adjacent gallery, perfect for your most treasured works of art. The gallery leads to a fully appointed guest suite with separate patio access, and a large multipurpose rec room. This flexible family hangout features a remarkable bronze wall with matching barn door, and two large glass-paned garage doors that access the front courtyard. The courtyard along with all outdoor spaces are thoughtfully landscaped with perennial gardens, a lovely wildflower berm, and a peaceful Zen garden for seasonal enjoyment throughout spring and summer, culminating with an endless sea of golden aspen in autumn. The lower level offers more intrinsic features to serve homeowner wellbeing in a transformative time including a peaceful sitting area, media room, wine room, three additional ensuite bedrooms, and a fully equipped workout studio with compelling views and direct access to an outdoor hot tub.
When contemplating this modern masterpiece, it’s hard imagine a more special location in the Vail Valley that’s also just six minutes from the bustling Town of Avon and Beaver Creek Resort, and 20 minutes to Vail with world-class recreation, shopping, dining and resort amenities.
