Crested Butte Neighborhood Spotlight: Sunlight Ridge
Sunlight Ridge is located on the hillside across the valley from Crested Butte Mountain Resort. The high location of the Sunlight Ridge Estates gives the neighborhood some of the best views of any Crested Butte subdivision. Depending on the location in the neighborhood, views include the ski area, Whetstone Mountain (pictured from Sunlight Ridge), Whiterock Mountain, and even the upper Slate River valley. Homesites in this subdivision face East or South more often than not, which means early morning light or even light all day- hence the name! Compared to homes in town, this means several hours of extra daylight during the winter months. Despite the ridgetop location, many of the parcels are surprisingly flat and therefore not difficult for builders. This is a smaller subdivision, with only 20 or so homesites. Additionally, the Eagle’s Nest condos are part of the subdivision. Homes in this neighborhood are high end luxury homes, with designs that take advantage of the sweeping panoramic views that the area provides. Crested Butte Mountain Resort is a short drive, or you can catch the bus at Eagle’s Nest during the ski season.
The streets of this area are all dead-end cul-de-sacs, meaning there is a noticeable lack of traffic. To learn more about buying or selling a home in Sunlight Ridge or anywhere else in the Gunnison and Crested Butte area, feel free to contact me anytime.
