Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate (SSF), the firm which has served Colorado’s mountain resort communities for nearly 60 years, has been awarded the listing for Clearwater Lofts, a luxury condominium development near the Lakeside Village area of Keystone. This new development is the first condominium development under construction in the area in several decades.
Located right next to Keystone Lake and only a mile from the Mountain House base area, Clearwater Lofts are designed to provide access to outdoor recreation all year long. With pricing starting just under $400,000, the new development will feature 65 high-end units in three buildings that border the Snake River wetlands. The condominiums range from one-to-four bedrooms, each with breathtaking views of surrounding peaks, including Tenderfoot Mountain, the Gore Range, the Tenmile Range and the Continental Divide. Residents can take the free Keystone shuttle directly to the ski resort’s Peru Express Chairlift for skiing in the winters and can access hiking and biking trails, golf, and many water activities in the summers. Access to Breckenridge is less than a 30-minute drive.
“Most of the residential developments in this area were built in the 1980s or earlier. Not only is there a big demand in Keystone for new construction, buyers are also looking for a true idyllic mountain getaway that offers recreation year-round,” says SSF’s Chris Lankhorst, who is co-listing the development with SSF’s Dave Greenberg. “With fine dining, live music and amenities close by, Clearwater Lofts provides the best of both worlds – the comforts of an urban lifestyle that literally backs up to three amazing mountains of recreation with spectacular views.”
The development, which is being built by Clearwater Lofts LLC, offers several different open-concept floor plans with private decks, full kitchens and in-floor radiant heat. The mountain modern design includes granite countertops, state-of-the-art finishes and appliances. Each unit comes with two parking spaces, one in the heated garage and one uncovered space outside, as well as a large secure storage room for all outdoor gear such as skis, bikes, kayaks and even a motorcycle. Residents will also get to enjoy two hot tub areas that include private outdoor patios. A membership to the East Lake Pool, which is less than a two-minute walk from the development, is also available for residents who want to take advantage of the facility’s indoor pool, hot tub and sauna.
Along with quick and easy access to the outdoors, the Clearwater Lofts are just a short walk to the popular Keystone Lakeside Village, which is home to the Keystone Conference Center. This area around Keystone Lake is always bustling, with paddle boats, canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boards available for rent in the summer and an ice-skating rink in the winter. There are also several restaurants and shops, as well as outdoor events such as farmers markets and holiday celebrations.
SSF has listed and sold more than 100 new development projects in the Colorado mountains over the past 30 years, with a total sales volume of $5 billion. SSF’s division dedicated to new Development Sales provides an additional level of first-class service for developers. The firm is currently listing projects in the Colorado mountains for 15 developers.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Clearwater Lofts LLC to bring these new luxury condos to an area that hasn’t added new condominium construction in the last several decades,” says Shawna Topor, executive vice president of SSF’s Development Sales Division. “We have the right resources and an incredible track record to do what we do best – sell real estate. The developer recognizes the power of the SSF brand and team and is confident that we will be able to sell the remaining units and bring the project across the finish line.”
The first building of the Clearwater Lofts is projected to be finished in February 2021.
Construction started in January 2020 and includes 22 units. At this time, 13 units are under contract and 9 more are still for sale. Lankhorst and Greenberg work out of the SSF’s Keystone office. To learn more about the development, visit www.clearwaterlofts.com.
