This isn’t an amusement park, a club, or a resort—it’s actually a sprawling single-family estate with every amenity you can think of. Located in Edwards, Colorado, just 20 miles from Vail, this home recently sold for $40 million.

The sellers, who used the residence as their primary home according to The Wall Street Journal, began building in 1996 and gradually added onto the property throughout the years. It includes several parcels of land totaling 450 acres that border a national forest. There’s a 30,000-square-foot main home with eight bedrooms, which was completed in the early 2000s.

Here, there are also some unique amenities, including an ice-cream parlor; a saloon inspired by the iconic Silver Dollar Bar & Grill in Wyoming; and a 200-foot steel viewing bridge with incredible views of the Sawatch mountains and feel as though you’re suspended high above the forest. The home tok six years to build and features old-world design with a more modern aesthetic. There are also more traditional amenities today’s buyer is used to, like a gym, movie theater, and arcade game room.

There are many ancillary structures like many guest cottages and apartments, as well as an Old West-style town, which includes a hitching post and a sheriff’s office with a jail. The home is a contemporary spin on a rustic mountain escape predominantly built from wood, stone, and glass with flat-topped roofing and large-scale windows.

It’s grand in every sense of the word, from the expansive foyer with three staircases, ultra-high ceilings, and a suspended glass-and-wood walkway that connects separate wings of the home. The home also has a curved facade that takes advantage of the mountain views and many outdoor lounging areas with fireplaces around the home to enjoy.

Other structures include a 28,000-square-foot entertainment structure called Coyote Lodge that has an indoor-outdoor pool with a green wall, hot tub, four-story climbing wall, teppanyaki grill, massage room, and an indoor baseball field with a viewing area, large TV screens, and turf. Outside, the property has soccer fields, two shooting ranges, a pond, and storage for cars, ATVs, bikes, and snowmobiles.

The home is ideally situated near ski resorts like Vail and Beaver Creek and great for year-round enjoyment, from skiing in the winter to hiking and biking in the summer months. Though it’s near ski towns, it’s remarkably private with plenty of outdoor pursuits on offer. The surrounding outdoor acreage also allows access for fly-fishing, sledding, and snowshoeing.

Also according to The Wall Street Journal, the buyer is Florida-based real-estate development firm Baseline Property Group, who plans to subdivide the property into eight to 10 parcels. They plan to use the home for personal use as well as the additional facilities for corporate retreats or rentals.

Malia Cox Nobrega and Barbara Gardner Scrivens of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty handled the sale of the property. This isn’t the first time the estate has been listed, either; in 2019, it was listed for $78 million with a different brokerage and in 2021 for $42 million with Sotheby’s.
