Aurora Point (named for its stunning views) is where the dream group vacation experience comes together through the eyes of an award-winning developer and Disney engineers.
This 7-bedroom estate with four suites is the latest iteration in a series of smart homes that the dream team has crafted. In designing Aurora Point, we began with the same proven design as our Himmlischer Chateau Pennsylvania property - which books up months in advance and has received rave reviews since 2008. It has all the same resort features that our guests love, but you would never find in a typical home. These include a Japanese Steak House-inspired kitchen island with a four-foot long commercial Tapan-yaki griddle for gather-around cooking shows and a 4-D, HD Gaming Theater where groups can bowl, shoot bears or play other Xbox One, Playstation 3, Wii and Kinect Games on a giant 14- foot screen.
A second HD theater in the great room allows adults to watch sports, movies and internet content while enjoying their favorite places to hang out in the kitchen and living room.
The differences are that Aurora Point is grander and it boasts more smart-home technology and entertaining features. Plus, guests enjoy free access to indoor and outdoor (summer only) heated pools, fitness center, basketball, tennis, ice skating in winter, horseshoe pits and more.
Painstaking attention to detail went into raising and lowering the vantage points in Aurora so that guests could enjoy the scenery -and separate sound systems - not only while gathering around the kitchen island and sunken living room, but even from their pillows, while brushing their teeth and showering.
Aurora Point will be completed - and we are taking bookings now - for the fall of 2013. Since the rooms are nearly identical to our Himmlischer Chateau (only bigger, and more of them), please take a moment now to visit the Himmlischer Chateau 'Sister Property Web-site Link' below to view the finished product and guest comments.
The owners are far from typical, and believe that vacation home designing is an art extending way beyond the material selection and finishes found in a typical home. Aurora Point has marble bathrooms, lighted etched-glass artworks, gas fireplaces and jacuzzis -- and that is just in the master suites, but it also is an entertainment complex, purposely designed for family and group reunions of all ages and in all seasons! Before drafting the house, we blueprinted the fun for every activity, and part of our think-tank process was considering where adults and children of each age group would congregate while together and on their own.
We specialize in building vacation properties with jaw-dropping views in quintessential locations. The structure sits up high on a point, where ski slopes and horse and bike trails form around it on both sides. You actually have to drive over a ski slope bridge to get to its location in the center of Timberline Ski Mountain. There are wide open ski slopes below it also, so from this unique perch, guests enjoy a clear view all the way down the mountain to the lake and valley below.
This lot gave us goosebumps when we first saw it, and we believe that it is the nicest location in Canaan Valley.
You may never have to move your car while here, because guests can ski-in, ski-out, mountain bike-in, mountain bike-out, ride horses by the house, and we provide a limo golf cart to get to the lodge restaurant, tennis courts and convenience store in the spring, summer and fall.
There is as much fun inside this house as out --- and oh-boy is there a lot to do outdoors - in all four seasons!
Aurora Point is located at 4000 feet in the center of Timberline Four Seasons Resort with Alpine ski slopes and horse- and mountain-bike trails on both sides. Plus, we provide a six- passenger limo golf cart to get to the tennis courts, stables, general store, and tour the community.
