The newest development in Silverthorne, Summit Sky Ranch is headed into its final stages of planning.
Silverthorne Town Council voted to approve three resolutions for final plats within the subdivision allowing for the last phase of lots to be sold and start development.
Upon approval, a provision was made that trails and trailheads would be expanded to connect to the Gore Range, something the staff at Summit Sky Ranch have been working with the U.S. Forest Service to accomplish.
This provision was an important piece for the Town of Silverthorne and Summit Sky Ranch as the neighborhood is being built with environmental homeowners in mind. Connecting to trails and including opens space is a key piece to the core values of this development.
The property spans 416 acres across the mountainside near the Blue River Valley and will be the first known Dark Sky development in Central Colorado. Dark Sky neighborhoods use minimal, shielded lighting to preserve views of the stars.
The community will have a telescope used by professional and student astronomers. A live stream from the telescope will be sent to the Aspen House, the neighborhood’s community center.
At the entrance of Summit Sky Ranch will be a 20-acre park which is four times the size of Rainbow Park in Silverthorne.
The park is set to have two areas of open space, one large enough for a high school soccer field and the other for Little League Baseball. There will be a dog park, nine holes of disc golf and a sledding hill.
The park will also act as a new trailhead for the routes leading up to the Gore Range.
The development has sold 82 of the planned 240 single-family homes, with a sales volume of $67 million. One-third of the buyers have been Summit County locals and buyers will be able to move into completed homes this coming spring!
