Crested Butte Neighborhood Spotlight: Red Mountain Ranch
The prestigious Red Mountain Ranch neighborhood is located roughly halfway between Crested Butte and Gunnison, making a commute to either end of the valley a breeze. This gated luxury community consists of spectacular 35+ acre parcels, many of them bordering public land. If you’re looking for wide-open spaces, Red Mountain Ranch is a great choice! The downvalley location means a bit less snow than similar real estate such as Trapper’s Crossing. A large number of these lots sit high above the valley floor, and offer spectacular views of Paradise Divide and the Elk mountains to the north, and the idyllic lower East River valley to the south. In other words, the views from Red Mountain Ranch satisfy both the “big wide-open western views” as well as mountain vistas so coveted in our area. Additionally, a large number of Red Mountain Ranch homesites offer seclusion in mature aspen and evergreen forests.
This area is popular with wildlife, and it isn’t surprising to see elk, deer, and other animals on a near daily basis. Road maintenance is covered by the homeowner’s association. There are approximately 60 parcels in Red Mountain Ranch, and as of 2015 roughly one third of them have been built on.
