Initial sales of cabins and single-family homes at the Summit Sky Ranch development, on the north end of Silverthorne, are off to a brisk start. According to a news release, 33 homes were sold for $23.5 million on September 19. That’s an average purchase price of just over $700,000.
Formerly called Maryland Creek Ranch, the 416-acre parcel is being developed by local businessman Tom Everist, whose family has owned the Blue River Valley property for about two decades. The property is located just two miles north of Silverthorne, set amongst the Blue River and the Arapahoe National Forest.
The goal is to build a community that fits into the landscape as opposed to dominating the surroundings. To that end, over 60 percent of the initial plan will be preserved as open space.
Added touches for the outdoor enthusiast include community trails connecting to national forests, a private 10-acre lake with beach, a boat house with kayaks and paddle boards, a public dog park and disc golf area. Cold weather fun includes Nordic skiing, ice skating and sledding. There will also be a 7,000 square foot community center, the Aspen House, featuring a theater, along with an outdoor pool, hot tubs and fire pits.
The 400-plus acre site will eventually host 240 semi-custom homes and cabins. Craine Architecture is the design firm, and Summit County builder Brett Barrett and Barrett Master Builders are leading construction on what the developer is describing as mountain modern luxury. The first 47 units will be built through this winter, and initial occupancy should begin by fall 2016.
