What To Do in Edwards,CO

A sunny, dryland surrounded by sagebrush, Singletree, is a refreshing change of scenery from the rest of the area?s more mountainous landscape. This dry setting is the inspiration for the southwestern architecture found across the hillside. The neighborhood flows up the hillside, offering varying elevations of amazing views to Vail?s back bowls, Arrowhead, New York Mountain and stunning sunsets.

My favorite part of Singletree is Balata restaurant in the Sonnenalp Golf Club. The outdoor patio has amazing views and is the most beautiful spot in the valley for a wedding (we had our reception there). The Sonnenalp Golf Club, which boasts an 18 hole championship course, and its clubhouse are the center point of the neighborhood. The club offers outdoor swimming and tennis and the community is filled with parks and bike paths.

Singletree, legally known as Berry Creek Ranch, has five filings of properties. The first 2 include condos and townhomes, clustered around the golf course and club house, single family homes and duplexes. Up high in the Fourth Filing is an area called Apoloosa Ridge, whose building guidelines require a SantaFe style architecture. June Creek flows through the Third Filing, which is a access point for mountain biking and hiking trails through public land.

What an awesome 3 days of golf!!?? Red Sky Ranch’s member-guest golf tournament, The Trailblazer, was an outstanding event, both on and off the golf courses.? The championship Fazio and Norman courses were in fantastic condition for this match play tourney.

Red Sky Ranch's Fazio Course 5ht Hole

The format?was 5 nine hole matches, with 13 flights of golfers based on handicap, w/ each flight consisting of approx. 6 teams.? For each hole your team won, you recieved 1 point, for each halved hole, 0.5 pts. and 0 pts. for a loss respectively.? The highest cumulative point total determined the flight winners, and each winning team then advanced to the Shoot-out.? The Shoot-out was a 3 hole alternating shot playoff (scotch format), with the top 3 teams advancing to the final.

Gateway’s Doug Schwartz and his golf partner, Michael Paderewski won their flight with 29 points.? We played well during the match play, but fell apart during the shoout-out.? Amazing what a little pressure can do to you.

All in all, the courses, the staff, the food, the parties, the whole experience was about as good as it gets for any golfer anywhere!!

To learn more about Red Sky Ranch or about why we couldn’t close it out with the money on the line, just call me anytime.

Beaver Creek

The real estate market in Beaver Creek has had a respectable first half of the year. Respectable, that is, compared to the rest of the country and even to the real estate market in Vail, Colorado. Forty homes have sold in the first half of 2008 in Beaver Creek. Fifteen of the homes were under one million, while seventeen sold between one million and five million. In the five to ten million dollar range, eight homes have sold since January 1, 2008. The highest price home sold, so far this year, was at Wiltshire Court and it sold for $9,500,000.

Buyers are still getting decent deals and sellers are eagerly negotiating prices, especially, with one hundred twenty units on the market . Prices are?between a low of $395,000 all the way up to a staggering $27, 250,000.? With so many to choose from, buyers can make respectable offers and perhaps get a great deal on a lovely home in the beautiful ski area of Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Up the hill to the south of the metropolis of Edwards the Homestead neighborhood is popular with locals, including myself.? Within walking distance to the downtown movie theater, grocery, restaurants & shops and under 10 minutes drive to Arrowhead for skiing, Homestead is a favorite spot for those wanting convenience (don?t worry if you run out of milk), access to night life (walk home after a few drinks) along with quiet (no i-70 noise).? The community wraps around the 37,000 square foot Homestead Court Club, a fitness and community center owned by the residents of the community.? The court club offers indoor and outdoor tennis, squash and racquetball courts, fitness area, indoor pool and hot tub, steam and saunas, a kid pool and daycare. There?s a Montessori pre-school on the property and an outdoor basketball court.? The beauty of the Club, which all Homestead residents pay into (under $95 per household) is that only about ? of the residents use it so you pay less than the other fitness centers and don?t have to fight the crowds.?

For outdoor lovers, Homestead has an intertwining series of hiking paths.? The longest trail starts at the top of the neighborhood, travels up above Lake Creek and over to Arrowhead.? This trail is a favorite with my husband and brother-in-law for mountain biking up Arrowhead and back down home.? There are several pocket parks for the kids and places to run the dogs.

Properties in Homestead include condos, townhouses, duplexes and single family homes, some with amazing views west downvalley, southwest to New York Mountain or north over Cordillera Valley Club and Singletree.? Historically, Homestead has been a neighborhood of primary residences; recently it?s seen an increase in second homeowners looking for, what else: location – a family oriented community with easy access to Edwards’ city life and the Vail Valley?s attractions.? ?
