5,000-Acre Granby Ranch Coming to Market

Granby Ranch

DENVERCBRE has been named the exclusive marketing advisor for Granby Ranch in Granby, Colorado. Located 90 miles west of Denver and 15 miles north of Winter Park in Grand County, the expansive 5,000-acre property is well-known for its recreational amenities, which include more than 400 acres devoted to snow skiing, 34 miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking, an 18-hole championship golf course and more than three miles of private, gold-medal fly-fishing water along the Fraser River. The growing community is entitled for more than 4,300 residential units and 1.3 million square feet of commercial space, and is planned for additional recreational amenities.

The Cipriani family acquired the property 22 years ago, when it was known as Silver Creek. Since then, the golf course was built, ski improvements were made, major infrastructure and community trails added, home sites were graded and homes built, water rights were secured and land was donated for a medical center, recreation center and affordable housing. New businesses and jobs were created and vested entitlements were annexed into the town of Granby.

Granby Ranch WaterUnder the leadership of matriarch Marise Cipriani and her CEO daughter Melissa, Granby Ranch has become a popular and family-friendly, four-season recreational community with more than 600 families.

“After 22 years of heavy lifting, my family and I have decided to make a change in our lives. I personally have been living about 6,000 miles away from my husband of 38 years for over two decades. My daughter just got married and wants to start a family, so I want to dedicate my time now to my family and the next phase of my life. As such, my family and I have decided to list the Granby Ranch property for sale beginning January 2018. I feel that the Granby Ranch community is poised for great growth and opportunity. I believe under new stewardship and guidance, the vision and full potential of Granby Ranch will be realized. It is with heartfelt gratitude that I thank all those who have shared in this vision to make Granby Ranch their home,” said Cipriani.

Granby Ranch will come on the market in January and the listing team consists of Eric Roth and Martin Roth, both senior vice presidents with CBRE Land Services in Denver, and Jeff Woolson, an executive vice president with CBRE who serves as the managing director of its Golf and Resort Group.

“A resort community of this size located only an hour and a half from the thriving and expanding Denver population, is very rare. Further, the existing infrastructure and recreational amenities would be a challenge to replicate today. Given the site’s significant scale, it is uniquely positioned to offer product at every price point and has a bright future ahead,” noted Mr. Roth.
