Spring 2015 It’s easy to SKI and GOLF and FISH in Vail now.  Ski as usual and now 2  of the 14 golf courses (Gypsum Creek and Eagle Ranch) in Eagle County are open with “get acquainted” specials.

In the following weeks before the close of the Vail ski season on April 19, several more courses will open.  Ski in the morning and get in 9 or 18 holes of golf in the afternoon.  Before the streams start running high, it is also a great time to get a fly fishing guide and catch some trout.

Although all of us in the Vail Valley are partial to ski in/ski out properties, we also are partial to the extraordinary beauty of the Eagle River. But undeveloped land on the river is becoming more and more rare. I just did a search in the Vail Board of Realtors MLS and found only five parcels of undeveloped land currently available for sale on the Eagle River in Eagle County. Presently there are two small lots in Gypsum priced between $96,000 and $399,500. In complete contrast to those homesites is an opportunity in Edwards known as Jesse’s Parcel. This 4+ acres is a rare “infill” parcel which is listed at $3,300,000 and is within walking distance to The Riverwalk at Edwards with its extensive shopping and dining options.

Six miles west of Wolcott, a lovely 2 acre site rests along the north side of the Eagle and boasts lovely views to the red cliffs beyond. This beautiful homesite is offered for $500,000. Further west lying between Eagle and Gypsum within a small gated neighborhood is a 35.5 acre stunner. The small, gated rural community was the original headquarters for the turn of the century Eagle Ranch and this stretch of the Eagle River has been private since that time. The Eagle River runs through this gorgeous land and offers unequalled fishing, extraordinary privacy and a phenomenal value at $875,000! If you want the soothing sounds of the Eagle River out your door you should act now on these breathtaking opportunities now.
