Steamboat Springs, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) March 02, 2011
Marabou Ranch, the premier North American shared ranch community, announced a significant rise in recent homestead sales. Over the past two months, the high-end development has sold three homesites, totaling over $5 million. This momentum has continued with a fourth homestead under contract and expected to close this spring.
The increased activity began with the sale of homestead D2, an expansive landscape with breathtaking views of “The Sleeping Giant” mountain, a famous local landmark. Homestead B9 was purchased shortly thereafter. B9 is situated along the scenic Elk River, renowned in Colorado for its gold medal fly fishing waters. This transaction was followed by the purchase of A4, a large homesite perched over 10 acres of trout ponds and meadow meander. Most recently, homestead B5 went under contract. B5 offers sweeping views of the Elk River and is located in close proximity to Marabou’s famed amenities. These include a full-service spa, state of the art fitness center, outfitters cabin, saloon, chef’s kitchen and formal dining room, private movie theater, game room, and private concierge service.
Marabou Ranch features over 1,700 acres of sprawling Colorado ranch land located minutes away from the world-famous Steamboat ski resort and the Hayden, Colorado airport. Steamboat Springs is one of the most coveted destinations for ski and ranch-life enthusiasts. Real estate sales volume at Marabou Ranch and the surrounding Steamboat area have experienced healthy growth. According to Land Title, Routt County sales volume in 2010 showed a 16% improvement over 2009, while the total units sold grew 71% over the same period.
