Discover a community dedicated to the active mountain lifestyle. Envision clean lines meeting organic shapes in total harmony. Defined by the landscape, rather than shaping it, we are creating 240 single family homesites in the heart of the Blue River Valley. Our vision is to redefine what it means to own a home in the heart of Summit County.
Summit Sky Ranch is a community of 240 single-family properties built brilliantly to blend into the 416-acre property. With a focus on open space and conservation, and maintaining an active, vibrant community, our lots and home options are designed to combine the organic shapes of a mountain property with the clean lines of modern styling and architecture. Approximately 60% of the property is open space, including a large portion of wetlands. Respect for and stewardship of nature is a core value of the development team and the homeowners. The homes are constructed with a high standard of insulation and an efficient radiant heat system. The team has placed an emphasis on natural landscaping, limited sodded grass areas. Summit Sky is also a dark skies community.
The Summit Sky Ranch development included rezoning and various entitlements. Many influences are present in this tight-knit community and Palisade worked for months to ensure this project was accepted by those in the community. Several neighborhood meetings were held, and Palisade has been incredibly involved with the Town of Silverthorne throughout the community outreach, rezoning, planning, and development stages of the project.
Originally homesteaded in the 1860’s, the property known as Maryland Creek Ranch was first used as ranch land for hay production and Scottish Highland Cattle. There were originally 8 families that staked homestead claims on the nearly 1100-acres of Maryland Creek Ranch, each with their very own brand.
Because the land sat along the Blue River Stage Line, it made for easy transport of the beef up and down the Blue River Valley from the Williams Fork up to Silverthorne.
Today, that ranching tradition continues at Maryland Creek Ranch, where over 12 head of cattle graze.
Now, dawn is breaking on the next phase of this majestic property.
