US: The Colorado mountain retreat has unveiled 24 permanent residences at the 6,500 acre luxury ranch in Tabernash.
The new community, known as The Ranches at Devil’s Thumb is a private, woodland-and-meadow enclave of homes, ranging from 11 to 35 acres.
Residents will be able to enjoy resort amenities (pool, spa, restaurants, stables, housekeeping, concierge etc), as well as activities including yoga, cross country skiing and fly fishing.
The homesites are priced from $750,000 to $1.8 million.
“We’ve always felt that we’re merely stewards of this land, and we’re looking for people who share that mindset, who appreciate the openness and wildness of the land and want to enjoy it now, but also preserve it for future generations,” said owner Bob Fanch.
“The homesites are on land that has the best views of the Continental Divide to the east and Byers Peak to the west, and they don’t impact the views from the resort,” said Fanch.
“We have seen a cross-section of interest, from retirees seeking a legacy home for their extended family to visit, to people who intend to live there full time, and of course there are people who want to use it as a vacation home,” said Fanch.
Two homes are currently under construction, with one slated to be complete by the end of the year.
