Winter Park Resort: Colorado's "Secret" Luxury Property

Colorado Luxury Properties: Apparently, Winter Park, Colo., is one of Mother Nature's exclusive fantasy landscape programs. How else do you explain this undisturbed enclave for nature lovers? Winter Park offers the sights and four-seasonal recreational activities that are the finest of the great outdoors. This is the mother lode of Colorado's great outdoors. Winter Park is part of Grand County, which is home to the state's largest body of water, Grand Lake.

Luxury-property developer Intrawest is raising a trilogy of luxury-mountain real estate properties for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts in Winter Park. The Winter Park Resort is a three-way project made up of Fraser Crossing, Founders Pointe and the Village Lofts. The plan is to have the ultimate Colorado four-season wonderland -- with three lakes, hiking and biking trails galore, and endless scenic forestry and mountains that appear to go on forever. The Rocky Mountain National Park also is nearby.

Winter Park Resort's location at the base of the ski hill adds to the area's overall appeal. Residents of the Winter Park Resort's luxury communities also will have easy access to train rides, hot-air balloon rides, and ATV tours. Winter activities include downhill and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice-skating, sledding with huskies, and sleigh rides.

Unlike other natural outdoor playgrounds in the state, such as Aspen or Vail, Winter Park is a destination that remains true to its nature. While Intrawest is adding the manmade luxury touches magnificently, Winter Park remains comfortable and homey with remoteness that is priceless. Condominiums in Fraser Crossing and Founders Pointe range from around $250,000 to $650,000. There are fully furnished, ready-to-live-in studios and one- and two-bedroom residences. The Village Lofts consists of 14 townhouses with one and two-story floor plans that are two- and three-bedroom homes. The Lofts are priced from $945,000 to $1.35 million.

Fraser Crossing, Founders Pointe and The Village Lofts are 67 miles from the Denver Airport and are easily accessed by way of I-70 West and Hwy. 40. Amtrak also travels to Winter Park directly from Chicago. For more information, visit www.lovewinterpark.com.
