Looking for a slice of heaven? This is it for sure. Listen to the sound of the river throughout this Gordon Pierce designed home. Watch it flow by as you are doing dishes in the Cape Cod style kitchen or sit on the patio with a glass of wine for hours as you watch the river flow by and wait for the sunset on Red Mountain. Views you have to see to believe. The main house has 3-bedrooms and-3 baths, a 2-car garage, DaVinci roof and plenty of storage. Just to the West is an additional guest house with 1-bedroom, bath, kitchen and one-car garage. The same jaw dropping views exist from this residence. Lush landscaping surrounds the almost 2 acre property which is irrigated. The large flat lawn is perfect for a game of croquet. This is a special place for anyone that wants out of the hub-bub and into a calm, relaxing, cozy home that is private and gated, yet very close to grocery stores, restaurants and skiing. There are many nearby golf courses to choose from. Raft, paddleboard, fish from your property or hike and bike the many nearby trails.
The quaint small town of Eagle, home to the county seat, has experienced steady growth over the past decade-plus while managing to maintain its old west charm and build on its easy lifestyle. Founded in 1887 along the Eagle River and located 25 minutes west of Vail at a warmer, lower elevation, the sun almost always shines in Eagle, even when surrounding peaks are blanketed with snow. Paved walkways and bike paths wind their way in and around the historic downtown in this cycle friendly community, which has undergone notable improvements while maintaining original store fronts and architecture from its agricultural and railroad roots. Wide open vistas and mountain peaks dominate your views from nearly every perspective in town. Ample parks and open spaces, an ice rink and pool, playgrounds, special events complex, miles of river frontage and pristine creeks for fly fishing, and the now famous mountain biking and hiking trails that surround town provide endless recreation opportunities. In addition, the town offers a variety of events throughout the year including weekly outdoor summer concerts on Centennial Stage at the Town Park, farmers markets, a fall festival, a holiday parade, summer outdoor sports festival, Eagle Flight Days - the annual summer family fun weekend, and the County Fair and Rodeo. The Eagle Medical Center provides convenient access to all types of care including physical therapy. A variety of retail can be found in Eagle Ranch Village, Downtown, and along the commercial corridor of Chambers Avenue. Properties range from simple historic houses near downtown, condominiums, flats, single family and golf course homes in Eagle Ranch, and large custom homes at Eby Creek, to sprawling ranch estates on the outskirts of town. The Eagle Regional Airport and Jet Center are only minutes west of town. Breathtaking scenery, affordability, convenience, outdoor recreation, and historic charm combine in Eagle.
