For the first time since 2010, construction is underway on a new spec home in Alpine Mountain Ranch and Club, the 1,200-acre luxury residential neighborhood less than 2 miles south of Steamboat Springs city limits on U.S. Highway 40.
A trackhoe operated by a crew from Nordic Excavating was busy Aug. 3 carving out a half-acre building site on the larger lot, which is situated on a hillside overlooking the south valley all the way to the Flat Tops, as well as looking directly up the Priest Creek Drainage to Thunderhead Lodge at the midway point on the Steamboat Ski Area.
And, representatives of developers and Corporex CEO Chairman and former president and CEO of Vail Resorts Andy Daly said there are more spec homes preparing to launch right on the heels of the first house.
“The idea is to break ground on three homes before the snow flies,” Alpine Mountain Ranch Director of Development and Marketing Bob Dapper said. The targeted sales price, including the five-acre lot, Dapper said, is in the range of $4.3 million. It will comprise 5,600 square feet.

“Bill Butler would say, ‘We’re making a push, a major commitment, because we believe in Steamboat’s economy right now,'” Dapper said, adding that the goal is to build momentum at the project, which is approved for as many as 63 homes.
