If your dearest wish is a modern and overwrought Austrian ski chalet in Vail Village, look no further. This 6,563 square foot old-world estate's listing claims "no detail or expense was spared," and it shows. Allow Curbed to walk you through the particulars of this 6 bed, 8 bath Gone With The Wind: 2013 movie set on just over a half-acre:
A private funicular provides direct-ski access, but just in case it's nippy out, there's also a warming hut. Speaking of staying toasty, enjoy your après ski hot toddies in the sunken wet bar, before ambling into the great room or dining room for dinner (prepared by your private chef, no doubt, in the professionally-equipped kitchen that houses a Wolf range and Sub-Zero appliances).
There'a also a game room, cedar-lined storage (who doesn't hate moth holes?), wine closet, and library/study. We're especially fond of the vast, cobblestone driveway, and the multi-level, inlaid stone back deck (with Jacuzzi), which commands an unforgettable view. Did we mention the landscaping is to die for? So is the price: $25,000,000. The seriously garish clash factor of several of the rooms' walls and ceilings might be a point of haggling contention, though.
