Red Lady Realty - Crested Butte, CO


Outlying Areas – 35 Acre developments

Rural Crested Butte consists of several ranch type properties, individual multi-acreage tracts, and several developments of individual 35 acre parcels. These outlying areas offer acreage, animal rights, fishing rights, privacy & seclusion, incredible views, and lots of open space.  As you may expect, in general the prices for these properties increase the closer you get to Crested Butte.   

Popular 35 acre parcel developments include:

Roaring Judy Ranch – Roaring Judy Ranch is located across the highway from the Roaring Judy Fish Hatchery and is off the Jack’s Cabin Cutoff to Taylor Canyon.  There is still a working ranch in the valley bottom and the property has everything from pasture land to sagebrush to aspen groves.  Because of the distance from Crested Butte (about 10 miles to the turn off), the prices are generally lowest here as compared with other 35 acre developments between here and town.

The Danni Ranch - Located about 12 miles south of Crested Butte, just off Hwy 135. This development consists of 19 thirty-five plus acre parcels, most offering spectacular views of the surrounding vistas. Owners within Danni Ranch have private fishing rights and access to the East River, for some of the best trout fishing in Colorado.

Reserve on the East River - Located about 11 miles south of Crested Butte, just off Hwy 135. If you desire privacy and like fishing, this is the place for you. Over twenty parcels of 35 acres or more, all with private fishing rights on the East River. World Class trout fishing, along with full-time on-site management, and a guest lodge, make this development unique and special.

Red Mountain Ranch - Located about 10 miles south of Crested Butte, via Hwy 135. This development consists of 25 treed parcels of thirty-five or more acres, all offering the privacy and seclusion desired from a much larger parcel. Many of the parcels offer spectacular views towards Crested Butte Mountain, while several offer other views of the surrounding vistas. Bring the horses!

Crested Butte Meadows, Crested Butte Highlands, The Ridge – These properties are located in the hills above CB South. Located on the hillside above CB South, properties in Crested Butte Meadows (CB Meadows) and Crested Butte Highlands (The Highlands) provide spectacular views up and down the valley.   The area is mostly sagebrush with groves of aspen trees scattered throughout.

Hidden River Ranch – Hidden River is made up of 17 parcels that are each around 5 acres.  There is 160 acres of common pasture land which provides a barrier between Highway 135 and the homesites which are perched above the East River.  This common area can be used to keep horses within certain parameters.

East River Ranches - Located only 5 miles south of Town, East River Ranches is a small collection of 35 acres parcels, located on the East River. Each parcel offers privacy and seclusion, and has private fishing rights on the East River.

Many of the parcels offer spectacular views of the surrounding mountains from the building envelope. Consider this development for views and easy access to Town.

Smith Hill Ranches - Located up Meridian Lake Road near Long Lake, about 2 miles southwest of Mt. Crested Butte. These 35 acre parcels offer privacy and seclusion, along with incredible mountain views.

Saddle Ridge - Perched high on a south-facing hillside 1 mile between Crested Butte and the ski resort, Saddle Ridge Ranches have some of the most awe-inspiring views around and are divided into 18 two to three acre estate lots parcels to build your dream home on.  There is 70 acres of open space with trails & a private horse barn with 18 stalls for the owner’s use. Saddle Ridge Ranch is the entry to the Lupine Trail, a coveted local favorite.

Glacier Lily - Glacier Lily Estates is located at the intersection of Gothic Road and Washington Gulch Road just south of the ski area.  There are 36 acres in this subdivision divided into 20 individual homesites and very few lots are left and all lots are over one acre.  Glacier Lily Estates has stringent covenants which protects the homeowner as it ensures a high quality development.  All utilities are installed underground.

Irwin - The elevation of Irwin is 10,197 feet and it was founded in 1880.  Irwin is nine miles west of Crested Butte and silver was discovered in 1879 and within six months, the town grew from 50 to 5000.  Irwin was a busy place with hotels, sawmills, stores, churches, stamp mills and many dance halls and saloons.  Today, many people have made Irwin their primary residence although it does only have seasonal access. In winter, you can have guided back country cat skiing tours through the Irwin Group. In the summer Irwin Guides creates custom-designed guided experiences. There is a beautiful lake that many people visit or camp next to in the summer.
