102F Buffalo Ridge Condominiums - Coming Soon!

by The Mountain Living Team

Located at the top of Wildernest, this 2 bedroom condo enjoys nice mountain views and has National Forest trails right outside the door.  It's a great location for your Summit County home.  

You'll enjoy the indoors here too.  Only one flight up from the assigned carport to this open and bright condo.  The large windows bring in natural light and showcase the mountain views off in the distance.  It's perfect for year round fun.  You can snuggle up in front of the wood burning fireplace in the winter months or kick back on the sunny deck any time of year.  

The high end bathrooms are sure to impress.  Both the main, full bath and the 3/4, master bath have granite counters, tile floors and showers, new fixtures, and custom cabinets.

HOA dues of $446/mo cover all your utilities, snow plowing, cable TV and access to four clubhouses.  You can enjoy swimming pools, hot tubs, volleyball, racquet ball, tennis, billiards or ping pong all without leaving the area.

There aren't any other Buffalo Ridge Condos on the market now and only 3 two bedroom condos on the market in all of Silverthorne.  Don't forget, this one has covered parking too.  That's an absolute luxury in Summit County!

Can I find affordable real estate in Summit County, Colorado?

by Joanne Hanson

Is there such a thing as affordable real estate in Summit County?

One of the areas that is seen as a good value is Wildernest. It is near Silverthorne, but not actually in the Town of Silverthorne. Wildernest is a large subdivision that sits at the base of Buffalo Mountain. (A great hike, by the way!) There are a lot of condominium complexes on the hillside and it has more reasonably priced real estate in it than many other parts of Summit County. The name is confusing as there is also a property management company named Wildernest, and they handle a lot of the properties there, but they are not exclusive to the Wildernest area. You can see a list of properties they manage There, they have all the Home Owner association documents online for the condo complexes and home owner associations managed by Wildernest Property Management.

Salt Lick CondominiumsWhen people are looking to buy a condo as a short term rental, we suggest that they find one that has access to a hot tub, as many skiers like to soak in the hot tub at the end of the day and having it improves the rental income. Some of the Wildernest complexes that fit that requirement are Timber Ridge, Buffalo Ridge, Buffalo Village, Treehouse, Snowscape, Gore Trail, Watch Hill, Salt Lick, Prospector Village and Forest Park. Others that allow homeowners to have their own hot tubs are Miners Creek, Buffalo Mountain Townhomes, Saddle Ridge and most of the duplexes that are dotted over the mountain. Condo complexes that don’t have hot tubs are turning into local’s housing, with second homes scattered among them. Those are Aspen Shadows, Villamont, Silver Queen West, Silver Queen East, New Lamartine, Buffalo Woods, Snowbird, Woodworks and Summit Point. A new townhome complex, Rolling Ridge, is now under construction at the base of Wildernest. It will have roomy townhomes with garages that will be priced between $500,000 and $600,000.

Summit Stage free bus serviceThe Summit Stage has a bus that services the area, connects with the Silverthorne busses, and from there enables people to access other parts of the county. Wildernest is not far from I-70 and is central to the four ski areas in the county, being about 20 minutes from Keystone and Copper Mountain, and 25 minutes from Arapahoe Basin and Breckenridge. Vail is only 30 minutes away in good weather.

The names of subdivisions in Summit County are often similar to each other. To make things even more confusing, nearby, in the National Forest, is the Eagles Nest Wilderness area, which people often call Wildernest. There is also a subdivision named Wilderness (no T on the end) in Breckenridge.

If you are looking for a place has great space for the money, check out Wildernest. In our MLS you would need to search the Silverthorne area, as the two areas are combined together. Let us know if you have any questions. We know the area well!
