Crested Butte is a growing and popular ski town and it is getting harder to find a homesite that is close to town, with acreage and amazing mountain views. Here is a once-in–lifetime opportunity to own a lot that ticks all of those boxes and so much more. Welcome to 370 Saddle Ridge Ranch Road. This incredible property offers 360 degrees of unobstructed and spectacular mountain views of Whetstone Mountain, Axtell Mountain, Mt. Emmons, Whiterock Mountain and of course, Mt. Crested Butte. You also get a unique perspective of the meandering Slate River as it winds its way through the valley and is a sanctuary for wildlife like elk, moose and deer. The stargazing will knock your socks off as you overlook downtown Crested Butte and the dark sky lighting requirements allow for the stars to really shine. Most homesites in the Crested Butte area are under an acre of land and the majority are only a quarter of an acre but this lot has 3.3 spacious acres. What makes it even more special is the 70 acres of HOA open space that borders the lot and wraps around the whole subdivision. This property offers a uniquely level building envelope, which allows for potential cost savings with the foundation and excavation when you’re building your dream home. The Saddle Ridge Ranch homeowner’s association allows owners to build up to 5,000 square feet including the garage and has design guidelines for the style of the home, exterior finishes and landscaping which help accentuate the cohesiveness of this exclusive subdivision. Owners also have access to the beautiful barn with indoor stalls, a tack room, grooming stall and pastures for horses. Equestrian enthusiasts will love riding through the open space and accessing the world famous Lupine Trail but you don’t have to be a horse lover to take advantage of this. Mountain bikers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts will all love the access to hundreds of miles of trails from right outside your door. Let’s not forget about the fact that Crested Butte is a famous ski destination and this homesite is only a short drive to the lifts but you can check the ski conditions from your home before ever stepping outside as there are direct views of the slopes. Saddle Ridge Ranch has their own substantial water system that allows for plentiful domestic water and irrigation for your beautifully landscaped yard. If you’re looking for a homesite with acreage, privacy and incredible views but don’t want to be totally remote and far from the cultural amenities like restaurants, art galleries, boutique shops and more, then this is the place for you.
