Situated on its own mountain with 360-degree views of Vail Valley, this magnificent family homestead, Il Podere, carries a strong Italian Renaissance theme throughout. Recently listed at 29.5M, the villa features a 13,000 square-foot main residence, a separate guesthouse/caretaker unit, a pool house, and a barn making for a total square building footage of 16,996 excluding the barn. The private hilltop location, incredible views, and Tuscan warmth make for a one-of-a kind property—did we mention it's only 25-minutes from the slopes of Vail?
The 13,000 square-foot main residence maintains the Italian renaissance theme throughout by incorporating materials sourced from Italy as well as architectural elements including elaborate rock archways. The home features 7 bedrooms, 7 full baths, 3 half baths as well as an outdoor pool, a 1,200-square-foot gym, an indoor basketball court, a sauna, and a billiard room. The pool house includes a half kitchen, one half bath, and a year-round outdoor shower (Brr!). The 2,000 square-foot guesthouse/caretaker unit includes 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, and a half bath. The barn includes a loft with four bunks and a half bath. Another notable feature is the 1.5-mile long private road accessing the home which came at a cost of 1M. It looks like a nice option for a morning stroll if you ask us.
