Penny Lane will not only be in your ears and in your eyes but also in your heart as this is the true Colorado home that you have dreamt of for your family.

This gorgeous, high-end, and well constructed home has the quintessential layout that everyone is looking for where you can live an entry level/main level floor plan in your day-to-day but have all the space and fun in the world when family and friends join to participate in your Rocky Mountain experience.
This incredible privacy was created through the current owner purchasing and absorbing the adjacent lot to assure your serenity. It also borders Cordillera Open Space and beyond that open space is Diamond Star Ranch. You can even stroll down to the outdoor wood burning fire pit with it’s own private stream for roasting marshmallows and telling stories.
When your friends arrive for dinner you know it will be magical as they drive up into your winter wonderland of lights of your lit up pine trees. Greet your guests at your inviting entry and bring them into your great room that is both grande and cozy with vaulted ceilings and huge picture windows overlooking the outdoor firepit and across the expansive views of grand pine. Your guests will take it all in and understand what it means when people say that “the mountains are calling.” Sit down and relax on plush couches by the gas fireplace and then gather and chat around the open chef’s kitchen while the finishing touches are made on dinner. Let’s face it, everyone gathers in the kitchen and this home welcomes chatting with the Chef working in this spacious kitchen that is open to the main living area and is the centerpiece of the home. Enjoy a family meal casually scattered around the multiple spaces or have a more traditional dining experience overlooking the outdoor lighted trees from the formal dining area.
54 Penny Lane is great for intimate gatherings or large parties as there are various cozy spaces for different groups to gather and chat. The hearth room off the outdoor dining area by the informal breakfast nook is the perfect place for intimate side conversations. The kids will break off and go downstairs to enjoy a movie in the true theater while their parents indulge in a nightcap.
Enjoy a long day on the slopes and come home to the hot tub and steam room that is big enough for your ski group. Dry off while hanging in the family room and take in the big game. Guests break off to one of the three en suite guest rooms on this level and doze off for a quick nap overlooking the picturesque Colorado views framed in every bedroom window.
It’s time to go up to take in the Alpenglow and sunset so grab a wine from the wine cellar or a cocktail from the wet bar and head up and help the host light the fire pit and bring out the appetizers.
On the third level is a private suite with it’s own wet bar, en-suite bathroom with shower/tub combination with a private balcony that is perfect for your guest with a new baby or your visiting parents that want separation from the rest of the household bustle. The oversized three-car garage with massive storage tops off this well thought out floor plan.

About the Area
Cordillera Information & Links:
Cordillera is a gated, country club community composed of three world class golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio and Colorado native Hale Irwin, and a par 3 short course. Offering a vibrant social life, there are several options for memberships. Additionally, the Cordillera amenities include workout facilities, lap pool, sauna/steam rooms, tennis and pickleball courts, equestrian center, hiking/biking and snowshoe trails, and trout fishing ponds.
The four distinct, gated neighborhoods are The Divide, The Ranch, The Summit, and The Valley Club covering 7,000 acres. Located on the north hillsides are all neighborhoods but The Valley Club, which can be found on the south side of the Valley.
However, no matter the location, abundant wildlife grazes throughout the open space. Despite being an elite golfing community, there are many full-time residents as well as second homeowners that spend months or seasons at a time due to the diverse activities year-round. The pristine nature of the Cordillera land is accented by picturesque views of valleys and mountain peaks. In addition to that, the homeowners in Cordillera are able to get more for their money in terms of both land and home as well as privacy. The price per square foot is significantly lower than if you were to purchase directly in the villages of Vail or Beaver Creek. Thus for the cost, Cordillera offers significant value with larger lots accompanied by greater size in terms of square footage for residences.
With a close proximity to both Vail and Beaver Creek, Cordillera agrees with the lifestyle of one who wants pristine nature and vast land but also likes close proximity to all the amenities of the Vail Valley. The Cordillera Club and community experience is unlike any other in Colorado.
