Over the last half century, various owners have had grand plans for the 5,000-acre property surrounding a small ski area in Grand County, just outside the town of Granby.

As the ski hill’s name changed from Silver Creek to Sol Vista to Granby Ranch, a four-season resort began to take shape. A golf course, clubhouse with swimming pool, and miles of trails were constructed, and condos and single-family homes began to pop up around these high-end amenities.

But legal and financial woes halted construction, and the Granby Ranch property went up for sale. Three years ago, two brothers from Missouri bought Granby Ranch through their GRCO and GR Terra companies. They formalized plans to build about 4,500 new residences and last year closed on their first 20 townhomes and single-family houses.

Granby Ranch’s real estate agent, Sheila Bailey of Keller Williams, predicts another 100 or so new residences will be sold this year. The owners are also remodeling the Granby Ranch facilities.

“There’s no other ski town in Colorado that has a ski area, golf course, 4 miles of private river access, and 60 miles of hiking, biking, and cross-country ski trails at your front and back door,” Bailey says. “And Granby Ranch is just 15 minutes to Fraser, Winter Park, Grand Lake, and Rocky Mountain National Park.”

Bailey says about 200 townhomes and 80 single-family homes are in the design or construction phases in four Granby Ranch neighborhoods.

The Meadows townhomes are the least expensive, priced from $499,000 to $699,000. “They’re in a mountain urban type of setting,” Bailey says. “Residents can walk to the shops, restaurants, breweries, and all of the other amenities of downtown Granby.” The Meadows neighborhood emphasizes patio and courtyard living and is connected through pocket parks, hiking and biking trails, and public fire pits and hot tubs. “It’s a very neighborly type of community,” Bailey says.

The Wrangler’s Crossing townhomes, which feature barn wood and stone exteriors, start in the $950,000s and are within walking distance of the base of the ski area. For skiers who want to get even closer, the three-story Saddle Mountain townhomes offer ski-in, skiout access, starting at $1.199 million. “Both neighborhoods have jaw-dropping views looking over the Continental Divide, [Bureau of Land Management] land, and the Fraser River,” Bailey says.

Finally, Granby Ranch’s Night Hawk custom homes, which Bailey describes as “high-end Craftsman mountain modern,” feature large lots and sweeping views. Prices begin at $1.595 million.
