at Shaw's River Ranch

Building a New Home at Shaw's River Ranch does not need to be a stressful process. Many potential lot buyers have a deep concern about building a new home in a rural community, especially if they are not already living in the area. High costs, long wait times to schedule reliable contractors and lack of knowledge on how the process actually works are all legitimate concerns for those who dream about having a new home in an idyllic setting far from their current home.

At Shaw's River Ranch, we will not leave you hanging. We have reliable and vetted contractors and sub-contractors ready to go to work on your new project. Their work is on full display at our development and they offer some of the best pricing and most timely service available in rural Colorado. Furthermore, we will assist with every step of the process until construction has began including inspiration for home site location and potential house design options.

Please check out the pictures and links below for some of the ideas we have for homes that could be built on several of the lots we currently have for sale:

This is an example of a home that could be perfect on one of the two remaining ridge lots. Any home designed on one of these lots should take full advantage of perhaps some of the best views on the planet by incorporating as much glass as feasible into the back side of the home.

This is an example of a home that would work well on Lot 7. The 2 story design will allow you to bring in the most incredible views. See below for a link to the architect's web site for complete plan details.

This is an example of a home that would work well on Lot 6. The preferred build spot would be hillside to take in the incredible views in most every direction and this walk out multi-story design would be perfect for that home site. See below for a link to the architect's web site for complete plan details.

lot 8 creek.jpg

Lot 8 - The Green Creek lot - is in it's own world. Separated from the rest of the community by the county road and featuring over 1000' of creek frontage. This could be the perfect place to build your rustic mountain retreat or your dream home. This lot features three premier build spots on 5.59 acres, so it could be the perfect lot for that dream home and a guest cabin.

The pictures above do not do this premier build spot on Lot 8 justice. However, imagine a perch above the creek with incredible creek views in both directions and a simple cabin like the one below sitting on this ridge with your deck above a robust creek that runs all year long. Also features your own private campground.

Please see below for pictures of some of the community property shared with only 9 total owners at Shaw's River Ranch. There is nothing else like it.

Shaw's River Ranch is Chaffee County's newest elite development. As a member of this association, you will have access to the community trail that descends down the mountain and follows the river and mountain to the lodge parking lot. For an additional $100K one time fee or broken up over a 5 or 10 year time period, you can also have access to all the other available amenities including 30+/- river front acres shared with only a few other owners. Your can fish the river, walk the dedicated trails, paddle board or float in the two stock ponds, or simply use one of the multiple picnic areas throughout the property. A nine hole championship level disc golf course follows along the South Arkansas River & winds throughout the lush, wildflower filled, meadow. Recreation continues outside the lodge with 3 gas firepits, bocce ball court, & stage for planned music events.
