Ever wondered what a £62 million price tag could buy you? The jaw-dropping ‘Casteel Creek Retreat‘ has just hit the market, featuring 21 bedrooms, 34 bathrooms, a home cinema, an ice cream parlour, a teppanyaki grill restaurant, a chef’s kitchen with butler’s pantry, a billiards room, library, a saloon-style bar, and an enormous wine cellar.
Over indulged on homemade gelato, a chef’s dinner from the teppanyaki grill or cocktails from the saloon bar? Work up a sweat in the fully equipped home gym, or hit the private sports pavilion, complete with an indoor climbing wall, indoor racquetball and baseball courts, indoor shooting range, and Olympic sized swimming pool, as well as a seriously cool home spa complex.
Outside, in the 439 surrounding acres of private land, there are 10 guest cottages, a football pitch, a fully stocked trout pond for fishing, 12 miles of groomed hiking and horse riding trails (with private paddocks and stables for horses, of course), a tubing-sledding hill, and there’s even a private ski slope with ski in / ski out access to the main house, which is ‘great for entertaining families’ according to the sellers who are a private family who use this ‘ranch’ to entertain family and friends.
Aside from the 32,000-square-foot main house and the 25,000-square-foot recreation building there are several guest houses too, as well as an artists studio, a sheriff’s office with private jail (yes, really), a helipad and underground parking for snow mobiles plus a private petrol station for fuelling up.
If that wasn’t enough, the sellers are throwing in 12 high-performance snowmobiles, three ATVS, a high-tech German snow plow, snow suits, helmets, boots and riding gear to ‘sweeten the deal’.
About a half-hour drive from Colorado’s Eagle County Regional Airport, the James Bond style property – which is more like it’s own gated community – is surrounded by 439 acres of private property, nestled between the prestigious Vail Mountain Club and Beaver Creek Ski Resort. The property borders the White River National Forest, providing direct access to the stunning countryside.
The current owner is a private family who wanted privacy and a retreat where they could entertain their family, friends or guests. They bought the Castille Creek ranch and over time added features, acreage and some buildings – including a 25,000 square foot recreation building with a fishing pond.
Pulling up to the 32,000-square-foot main house, visitors cross a dramatic, million-dollar curved steel bridge, setting the tone for the impressive castle-like estate.
Instead of dipping down into the trees and having to drive back uphill, the owners decided to have this elevated metal bridge run through the trees.
Clad in copper, steel, glass and stone, the house captures the spirit of mountain contemporary architecture. It features a striking stone façade, and cool viewing points and walkways.
Manicured gardens surround illuminated foot paths that wind between bridges and cool outdoor terraces.
Inside this three-storey main residence are eight en-suite bedrooms that are so spacious that the guest rooms come with their own offices, bars, and cosy TV snugs.
Other highlights include enormous bathrooms with not just walk-in showers but walk-through showers that connect his ‘n’ hers bathrooms.

Then there’s an over-the-top ice cream parlour…
… and an authentic replica of Colorado’s famed Silver Dollar Saloon, an establishment that dates back to the OG cowboy days of the 1880s.
There’s also a home cinema, as well as underfloor heating throughout and lift access to all floors.
Next door (well, a short drive on one of the property’s snowmobiles) is a massive 25,000-square-foot private recreation building.
Here you’ll find a five-story climbing wall…
… indoor racquetball court…
… a baseball court…
… indoor shooting range…
… a home spa…
…Olympic size lap pool…
… an authentic teppanyaki bar…
… and a home gym.
The property also boasts cool underground parking, with a sheriff’s office and private jail.
An on-site petrol station means you never run out of fuel. It may look vintage, but apparently they operate beautifully, with plenty of gas and diesel for all the equipment and cars.
And that’s not mentioning the self-catered guest houses each with their own kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms.
The property sits just a short distance from Eagle Airport and is the perfect oasis for building a private or corporate retreat. Any takers?
It’s on the market through LIV Sotheby’s International Realty for a cool £62 million – or $78 million dollars.
