From the river’s edge down valley in the red rock canyon… to beautiful mesas creeping up toward 14,000-foot peaks… to quiet subdivisions… to authentic Colorado ranches… the diversity of houses, condos, lots and ranches offered in the region cannot all be found in one county in many other places in America. The region offers buyers options that allow them quick and easy access to Telluride and Mountain Village, while expanding their choices beyond the resort area. Simply traveling through the region, many opt to move here and choose the true mountain lifestyle investment offered in Telluride and Mountain Village.
The region includes much of San Miguel County and the heart of the northern San Juan mountains. Because of its large differences in elevation, the San Juan mountain range includes almost every temperate zone found in America… from arid, desert climates to high-mountain tundra usually found only in the arctic. The sun also plays a dramatic part… a south-facing slope can have completely different temperatures and vegetation than a north-facing slope.
The Telluride region is also very unique in that there are no other major destination ski resorts where single-family 35-acre parcels can still be purchased within five minutes of skiing and other resort amenities. There will be very little future development available due to San Miguel County land-use restrictions and the abundance of National Forest… these large homesites and ranches are going quickly.
