Picture Spending Your Next Holiday in These Glamorous HomesAmanda Molitor
There’s something about the holiday season that adds an extra twinkle in our eyes. Maybe it’s the glow of the festive lights that decorate our homes, the glittering snowfall, or perhaps it’s the feeling that anything is possible.
And while the holiday may look a bit different this year, with fewer people traveling to see friends and family and more time spent at home, there is plenty of seasonal splendor to be had at home.
LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR), Colorado’s leading luxury real estate brokerage with a focus on helping others live a life they love, has the great pleasure of representing some of the most spectacular listings on the market. Explore a few of LIV SIR’s wish list-worthy homes for inspiration and an added boost of holiday glitz and glamour.
Imagine yourself in a snow globe, surrounded by swirling snowflakes. That is the feeling you might get at Casteel Creek Retreat, which is listed by LIV SIR broker, Kerry Endsley for $78,000,000. This 439-acre Vail Valley mountain retreat features a main home that is more like a modern-day castle than a house. Surrounded by one-and-a-half miles of untamed Colorado wilderness, this estate, which is comprised of the main residence as well as eight additional separate guest houses, offers seclusion as well as unmatched luxury amenities.
Spend time with your loved ones in the home’s swimming pool and hot tub, the home theater, the fitness center, the spa, the ice cream parlor, and the authentic replica Silver Dollar Saloon. For outdoor adventures, this estate offers 12 high-performance snowmobiles and three ATVs that you can ride on the more than 12 miles of groomed paths. If that isn’t enough to keep you busy, go fishing in the trout pond, or visit the shooting range, tubing/sledding hill, soccer field, or huge indoor arena for tennis, baseball and basketball. This incredible compound is truly one of the best offerings in Colorado.
Just a short drive from Denver awaits a castle estate that would make anyone feel like royalty. The regal residence at 600 Chateau V Road, which is listed by Whitney Cain, Jennifer Davenport, Rosemary Nigh, and Emily Henderson, for $11,999,000, is modeled after one of the country’s most famous architectural wonders, the Biltmore Estate. Here, holidays and every day in between are magnificent. In addition to the grand design on the exterior, which incorporates dormered windows, pitched roofs, turrets, and a lit colonnade of columns enclosing a private courtyard, this manor boasts more than 3,000 square feet of balcony and terrace space – the perfect vantage point to admire the views of snow-capped mountains and the surrounding winter wonderland.
Truly a home meant for making memories, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom estate is just as stunning inside. Sky-high ceilings, marble floors, and walls of windows that look out over the nearby peaks flood the space with bright, natural light. On chilly winter nights enjoy a piping hot cup of cocoa as you warm yourself by the one of the many custom limestone fireplaces. This palace is the perfect place to celebrate the holiday season this year and every year to come.
