A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY IN COLORADO
- 225.00 Acres
A once in a lifetime opportunity, Wolcott is the last major development parcel in all of Eagle County, Colorado.
Encompassing approximately 300 acres, this Planned Unit Development or PUD is located on the historic Jouflas ranches and the portion listed here is approximately 225 of those which are situated on the George Jouflas ranch land.
It was 1907 when Peter Jouflas first arrived from the mountains of central Greece to start a new life as a sheep rancher. He acquired land near the Utah border for his winter range, and more ranch land on the Frying Pan river for summer pasturage. Because the railroad offered better access to markets on the front range, he later moved his summer ranch operations to Wolcott. Even then, Wolcott was a major transportation hub, where the railroad, river, and highway intersected. And here the Jouflas family has resided for four generations.
Now, one hundred years later, the jewel of this land is primed for development! This extraordinary parcel encompasses both sides of I-70 at the Wolcott exit and extends north to the Eagle River and south to the Rod and Gun Club. The arduous and exhausting Eagle County entitlement process, which has cost millions of dollars and took almost four years, is nearly complete.
Significant thought, research and study are evident in the creative land plan which allows for 577 Residential Units and 156,550 square feet of Commercial Space. The PUD, as designed,offers numerous, diverse, residential neighborhoods, charming Americana Main Street, Live/Work commercial areas, various playgrounds and pocket parks, Eagle River recreation access as well as all the necessary Open Space requirements. In addition, this PUD also includes the highly desirable I-70 Interchange Commercial Pads.
Unquestionably, the most striking aspect of this land is its location. Wolcott is situated in the heart of Eagle County and is where Interstate 70, Highway 6 and Highway 131 intersect. It is bordered by the Eagle River and Eagle Springs Golf Course to the north and by Red Sky Golf Courses to the south. This land is only 25 miles from Vail Village and the incomparable Vail Mountain with its Back Bowls, 18 miles to the exclusive and beautiful Beaver Creek and only 15 miles to the Eagle Vail Regional Airport.
