Sales are hot, hot, hot at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club in Steamboat Springs, Colorado! With two custom market homes and two $1.5 million-plus homesites going under contract in August, it’s safe to say this luxury community is the place to be. And summer sales prior to August demonstrate that sales will continue to go in one direction – up.
“Interest in our amenity-rich ranch community just five-minutes from town and the ski area is at an all-time high,” said Suzanne Schlicht, Director Sales at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club. “Now more than ever, people are really thinking about what they want for a lifestyle and a home. And they’re liking the balance of open space with room to roam and the services and amenities we offer at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club.”
Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club Boasts Room To Roam, Plus Mountain Modern Architecture
Indeed, this 1,216-acre ranch community has room to roam. AMRC affords a whopping 63 five-acre homesites, 900-acres of open space, and a dramatic wildlife preserve unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Within the community, which borders the ski resort, are also miles of scenic trails, a community lake, Owners’ Barn, and a backcountry Hermitage. No shortage of nature-filled amenities here!
Even more interesting are the two custom market homes that recently went under contract. Both showcase the community’s forward-thinking – and unique to Steamboat – embrace of Mountain-Contemporary architecture.
Sunset Retreat Is One To Replicate
First, is a recently sold home aptly called Sunset Retreat. The 5,600-square-foot residence, listed at $5.175 million, features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a well-designed master suite.
The best part? It comes with a separate guest casita, providing plenty of privacy for residents and their guests.
“This home is a Mountain Transitional design, which means it has contemporary forms created using traditional materials,” explained Jamie Curcio, on-site construction manager for AMRC. “A good example of this is the contemporary barreled roof that is complemented with old world timber framing.”
Hygge Haus Also Went Under Contract In A Snap
Of course, who can forget the fan favorite! The second custom home that recently went under contract is Hygge Haus. The dreamy property, whose name is based on the Scandinavian term Hygge, reflects supreme comfort, luxury, and a feeling of well-being throughout. It offers 4,500 square feet across two levels, with master suites on each.
“Floor-to-ceiling windows frame 270-degree views spanning from Emerald Mountain clear across the South Valley to Walton Peak, with the Steamboat Ski Resort as the focal point,” said Architect Ian Wagner. “A modern and sophisticated kitchen and multiple dining areas, including a unique breakfast nook, encompassed by glass that opens completely to the outdoors, highlights the entry level, and at sunset invites in pink light from Steamboat Springs’ famous Alpenglow.”
Hygge Haus is currently under construction. However, the buyers will be able to work with AMRC’s in-house Design + Build team to finish the home to their specifications. That is a distinct advantage of building at AMRC.
AMRC’s Design + Build Team Will Bring Your Vision To Life
Buyers of a homesite that recently went under construction are also going to work with the AMRC Design + Build team to design and build their dream home.
“We know the local subcontractor force and the permitting processes. If you want a beautiful house at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club but you don’t want to deal with the stress of designing and building it, we’re here to take that on,” said Curcio. “Owners can be as involved or un-involved in the process as they choose.”
Building your dream home in the mountains has never been easier, thanks to the streamlined approach of AMRC. Although, you’ll want to act fast. These homesites and custom builds don’t sit on the market long.
“It’s been a rewarding few weeks,” added Schlicht. “And we got to celebrate it recently with our annual Steak Ride Dinner where Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club Owners and prospects ride on horseback to a beautiful backcountry spot for an exclusive and luxurious feast!”
Sounds like our brand of fun! Are you looking to build or buy in the mountains post-pandemic? Share with us in the comments.
