Main House

The 5,741 sq. ft. main home at Pass Creek Ranch sits at the northern end of the property at the end of a private driveway. The home was built along the banks of the Blue River surrounded by mature Aspens and Blue Spruce with unencumbered views of the Gore Range.

Built in 1996 with post and beam construction, well-known Vail architects Snowdon and Hopkins designed the home to honor the valley that surrounds the property. As you move through the home you will come across personalized details including the Peter Fillerup lighting fixtures, a piece of wood from the original homestead used as the hearth on the kitchen fireplace, and a custom ceramic inlay by John Glick

The main entrance opens up to the Gore Range and Blue River behind 30-foot floor-to-ceiling double pane windows and a hand-crafted river rock fireplace. This floor is also home to massive outdoor deck space, dining room, two bedrooms, and a spacious kitchen with marble countertops, professional-grade Thermadore appliances, a fireplace, and an island large enough for any meal.

Owners can access privacy in the top floor master suite with access to a steam shower, Jacuzzi bath, office space, and personal balcony.

The ground floor is perfect for guests or the younger members of the family. There are two bedrooms, a mudroom, a laundry room, a two-car garage, and a living room that opens up to the back lawn with direct access to the Blue River.

The improvements were designed to preserve the beauty of the land by having underground utilities and materials that complement the mountain landscape.
