Wintergreen, Virginia (PRWEB) November 2, 2005
Living a relaxed lifestyle away from the hustle bustle of the big city is becoming more and more attractive for baby boomers at the top of their earning power. Virginia’s Wintergreen Resort continues to be an attractive location for people to move to, especially for Washingtonians and those from other major metropolitan markets as well.
Because of its close proximity to the nation’s capital (less than a three hour drive from Washington D.C.), spectacular 360 degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah Valley, and all of the amenities of award-winning Wintergreen Resort including 24 ski slopes, two championship golf courses, indoor/outdoor tennis courts, several swimming pools and a variety of restaurants, Wintergreen offers the ideal safe sanctuary and a ‘home away from home’ for more and more people looking to escape the daily stress of city life.
Wintergreen Real Estate Company, the primary realtor for Blue Ridge real estate in the Wintergreen Resort Community since 1974, is now offering the opportunity to live a luxurious and relaxed lifestyle, with its latest and final condominium project, The Summit House.
According to Tim Hess, Managing Partner of Wintergreen Real Estate Company, “The Summit House has been a dream of ours since we first began developing Wintergreen back in 1974. With spectacular 360 degree views of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains, a 3,600 square foot private owners' club, an executive conference room, a full-service concierge and an exclusive limo service, The Summit House is in a class all by itself.” “The Summit House represents the ‘best of’ everything we’ve ever done at Wintergreen,” Hess added.
Along that theme, Wintergreen brought in the ‘best of’ in the industry to design the new Summit House, slated for construction in February, 2006. The Summit House will feature some of the country’s leading design and architectural firms including NCG Architects of Atlanta, Georgia and Slifer Designs of Vail Valley, Colorado, rated one of the top three design firms in the United States.
The Summit House features 39 luxury villas and eight penthouse suites, divided between two, six-floor buildings. Villa floor plans range from two-bedrooms to a three-bedroom wraparound with den, and will have a variety of customizable interior furnishings. The Summit House will also offer the only Private Owners' Club Room at Wintergreen, a 3,600 foot space featuring exclusive access to an executive conference room, home theater system, pool table, wet bar and kitchen, hearthstone fireplace, lending library, two card rooms, indoor lockers, and a full-service concierge.
The Summit House is also within walking distance of the premier resort’s amenities including the new world-class Wintergarden Spa, indoor/outdoor tennis, Devils Knob golf course and the Highlands ski slopes. But with the exclusive Summit House limousine service, residents will have the option of getting a ride if they so desire.
Wintergreen Resort is an 11,000 acre, four-season resort in the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains and located just 43 miles southwest of Charlottesville, Virginia, home of the University of Virginia and Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello. The resort features 24 slopes and ‘the best skiing in the Mid-Atlantic’ according to the Washington Post, two championship golf courses, the new Wintergarden Spa, indoor/outdoor tennis, several swimming pools and a lake, mountain biking, hiking trails and much more.
