Avon Real Estate
The Town of Avon used to be known for its prime location at the base of Beaver Creek Ski Resort, but Avon has come into its own in recent years thanks to thoughtful redevelopment projects, new restaurants and businesses, top-notch events and endless outdoor recreation. Avon offers a number of lodging options including The Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa, located right off of Avon Road near Beaver Creek.
One of Avon’s town jewels is Nottingham Lake, where you’ll find everything from standup paddle boarding to concerts to family-friendly festivals. Free buses shuttle visitors and residents around town or up to the ski resort, and a transit center also provides quick and easy access to Vail. The Town has made many improvements in recent years to its pedestrian connections, making the town much more walkable overall.
Avon has become an extension of the resorts, offering mountain living without any sacrifices. Wal-Mart, City Market and The Home Depot anchor the town’s retail business mix, which also offers a variety of unique local retail businesses and some of the valley’s top restaurants. The Westin Riverfront also offers gondola access from town to Beaver Creek Resort.
The Town’s 40,000-square-foot recreation center features an indoor waterslide, a 5-lane lap pool, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility. Just outside its doors, Nottingham Park Pavilion plays host to concerts and events, including the annual Fourth of July festivities which include one of the most impressive fireworks shows in the state.
The real estate in Avon features a combination of townhomes, condominiums and single-family homes. Second-home owners have taken a particular liking to the Westin Riverfront, Basecamp, The Ascent and Brookside.
