The enclave of Casteel Creek is a gorgeous and unique mountain experience—beginning with a scenic drive through the forest and over a dramatic million-dollar bridge.
2400 Casteel Creek Road, a modern mountain mansion, effortlessly blends charming Western details with modern, high-end amenities. Featuring stone and wood accents, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows, the stunning main home comprises eight ensuite bedrooms, spacious and cozy living areas, a dramatic kitchen, a home theater, an ice cream parlor, and a complete fitness facility and spa. Notably, the home also features a 200-foot steel cantilevered viewing bridge that suspends mid-forest for taking in dramatic views of the Sawatch Range and sounds of the creek below and a custom saloon bar modeled after Jackson Hole’s Silver Dollar Saloon in the Wort Hotel. Guests can relish views of Finnegan’s Peak from the living room, while the hot tub offers vistas of the Gorge Range and the Sawatch Range mountains.
In addition to the main house, 1683 Casteel Creek Road offers a four-bedroom guest house, a western town-themed car & toy barn complete with an efficiency-type apartment and kitchenette, and an authentic sheriff's office.
"Casteel Creek is truly a private sanctuary in the Colorado mountains. With its unique plethora of indoor and outdoor amenities, prime location within minutes of the internationally acclaimed ski resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek, and exclusive access to immaculate wilderness, it stands as a prized possession for its next fortunate owner,” stated Gardner.
At Casteel Creek’s Coyote Lodge, state-of-the-art amenities are just steps away and are exclusive to its handful of owners. Provided by the HOA, Coyote Lodge is a 28,000-square-foot and exclusive entertainment venue, set on 38 acres offering guest suites reservable for owners and guests, a 65-foot climbing wall, an indoor lap pool and shooting range, a full catering kitchen and bar with a teppanyaki dining area, a lounge area and formal dining room/boardroom, a game room, golf simulator, and an indoor field-house with tennis/pickle-ball/basketball.
Outside, there is a trout-stocked pond, a full-sized outdoor turf field, a large patio, a hot tub, and a playground. In addition, there are miles of groomed trails for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling all with direct access to the White River National Forests. An on-property yurt completes the outdoor experience.
“This stunning mountain property, adjacent to over two-million acres of National Forest Service is the perfect private family escape or ideal for a corporate retreat. Casteel Creek is an opportunity and experience unlike any other,” added Cox Nobrega.
