Scenic property, located between Vail and Beaver Creek resorts, presents breathtaking views and opportunity
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colorado Properties today listed one of the most picturesque and vast residential land parcels ever to come to market in the Vail Valley. The property, 4,676 acres collectively named Battle Mountain Ranch, sits equidistant from world-class travel destinations Vail Village and Beaver Creek on U.S. Scenic Byway 24. It is the only residential property offering direct views of Mt. of the Holy Cross and Vail’s Back Bowls plus Gore Range, Castle Peak, Chicago Ridge and Gold Dust Mountain.
Battle Mountain Ranch is secluded, set well back from the rush of I-70, and surrounded by 140,000 acres of National Forest Service property. Yet in less than 30 minutes you can be dining or shopping at Vail or Beaver Creek.
Co-listing Agent Onie Bolduc of Colorado Properties describes Battle Mountain Ranch as the “Land of Endless Possibilities” as it can be groomed as a legacy estate and private ski resort, subdivided into 35-acre ranch lots or positioned for even higher-density development. Each parcel would have stunning and unique views. “This is a rare opportunity to own pristine, Colorado wilderness wonderfully positioned between two year-round resort destinations,” said Bolduc. “Your imagination is your only limitation with Battle Mountain Ranch.”
The property ranges in elevation from 8,000 to 11,000 feet with dense lodgepole pine, spruce and fir forests, open meadows, cliffs and large stands of Colorado aspens. It’s ideal for year-round recreation including hiking, biking, horseback riding, camping, hunting and fishing the Eagle River.
Still, Battle Mountain Ranch is a trophy-class winter paradise. It boasts a vertical drop of 2,570 feet with nearly 700 acres identified for skiing. Average annual snowfall at the property is 340 inches, extending the calendar for skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and snow-catting.
“I’ve walked this property in absolute awe,” said Co-listing Agent Kyle Denton of Colorado Properties. “Words can’t properly describe its sheer beauty and varied terrain. The right buyer with the right vision has an opportunity to create something joyous at Battle Mountain Ranch.”
The property lists at $19.5 million. Visit www.battlemountainranch.com for details.
