Sitting just seventy miles from Denver, two miles from downtown Winter Park, Colorado and five miles from the Winter Park Ski Resort, "Aspen Ridge Preserve" sits quietly secluded and undiscovered.
The Preserve is a spectacular nine lot subdivision currently in the approval process one mile east of Fraser and US 40. It sits a quarter mile north of County Road 8. Accessible from the property is the Devil’s Thumb Ranch Nordic Trail System and another 5 miles up County Road 8 is the Devil’s Thumb Trailhead which leads to the top of the Continental Divide and the Continental Divide Trail System. Endless trails for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, and snowmobiling are either accessible from the property or moments away.
In addition to all the activities available from the property, alpine skiing is five miles away at the Winter Park - Mary Jane Ski Resort, and snow-tubing and fly-fishing are minutes away. All the lake and wildlife activities are 30 minutes away at the Tri-Lakes area which includes Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain Lake, Lake Granby, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Golf is also available at the four championship golf courses in east Grand County including 27 holes at Pole Creek in Tabernash a mere five miles away.
Aspen Ridge Preserve is a gently sloping valley that has a seasonal, spring-fed creek running through it. Views of the Continental Divide including the Indian Peaks Wilderness, Byers Peak, Parry Peak, and Winter Park and Mary Jane Ski Resorts are visible from everywhere on the property. Aspens, pine trees, spruce and gently sloping meadows along with breathtaking views of the Continental Divide make these incredibly desirable properties. The close proximity to a world-class ski resort also make them incredibly unique.
The number of large lots close to Colorado ski resorts has decreased dramatically over the past few decades and Aspen Ridge Preserve is only minutes from Winter Park Ski Resort yet when you’re on the property, you feel like you’re in the middle of secluded mountain park.
Tucked away and adjacent to the Preserve is the original log home. The current owner is expanded the cabin but is staying with the same rustic feel that makes Aspen Ridge so special.
In 2006, Aspen Ridge was annexed into the Fraser Urban Growth Area making it possible to create a small mountain community for people who love the mountains and love all that they provide. The goal was to provide an area close to town yet secluded enough to feel like a national park. Phase I of the Aspen Ridge subdivision was completed in 2012 and now Phase II is underway. With natural gas and electricity run underground to all the lots, the views and feel of the property will be preserved for the future generation to come.
