385 Forest Rd.
Journey back through time and experience all that was good, familiar, comfortably sweet and endearing about country living. Forest Road 385 is a glowing example of a French Country Homestead and one of the first of its kind built in the Vail Valley. This stylish abode boasts an exemplary mix of rustic and refined, vintage and sophisticated. It exhibits a comfortable casual elegance that is never ostentatious, but feels authentically homespun. Whites brighten the decor. Quilts, drapes and even shower curtains seem ‘hand made and handed down’. But there’s nothing lacking in terms of modern convenience and everything has a bright, clean and airy quality about it. Bird pictures and black and white photos of forested landscapes create an atmosphere of naturalism that is distinguishing. The definition of antique is having value because of its aesthetic or historical significance. An antique treasure that isn’t antiquated, Forest Road 385 is the perfect country ‘home away from home’ in the heart of Vail.
Here is your chance to sleep comfortably in a historical landmark! This wonderful 4 bed, 3 bath single family home on Forest Road is a quick, scenic three minute walk to the fine ski slopes. Much of the fashionable furnishings and appliances are new. Off the back deck is a gorgeous forested area with a babbling brook, and the home is an approximately 8 minute walk to Vail Village. Overall, this iconic masterpiece is a wonderful value for those looking to be in the midst of all the action!
