Minutes from the lively town of Edwards, Colorado the romance of the Rocky Mountains thrives in the gated community of Pilgrim Downs. This 300+ acre alpine neighborhood is parceled into 24 homesites surrounding a 70-acre rolling meadow. Nestled above the meadow in a thick stand of quivering aspen, this home is a modern architecture marvel steeped in local history overlooking this spectacular setting surrounded by prominent peaks. Originally owned by WWII 10th Mountain Division veteran and Vail legend, Sandy Treat Sr., the home underwent a comprehensive renovation completed in 2018 adding more than 2,000 square feet of living space. This elegant home sits on 5+ acres with coveted views of Red and White Mountain, Beaver Creek Resort, and the indisputable knife-edge of Vail's infamous Gore Range. Inspired by a fusion of European modern alpine and California coastal architecture, the exterior is Italian tile with custom metal and cedar siding. Bathed in natural light throughout, the great room features a three-sided marble fireplace next to a custom cantilevered steel and oak staircase, and magnificent towering windows that let the wilderness setting steal the show. Soak in the storybook scenery of century-old aspen and a tranquil reflection pond.Relax outside on one of the many spacious outdoor decks next to a cozy firepit and the community's exclusive open-space preserve. This brilliant home showcases the beauty of its wilderness location yet is minutes from world-class skiing, golf and resort lifestyle amenities. All things considered, every aspect of this impressive renovation was thoughtfully planned and executed. The use of space and flood of natural light, the subtle yet masterful landscaping, the advanced Control 4 technology throughout, and the two electric vehicle charging ports in the heated three-car garage has elevated a local war hero's dream home to a luxuriously modern mountain ''ReTreat,'' aptly named to honor the previous owner.
