It’s a good time to buy a brand new home on Orchard Mesa, as there are several subdivisions where various builders are working to create great neighborhoods in convenient locations.
Mountain View Estates is a development of 60 homes just north of B 1/2 Road and east of 29 Road. Right now, the only way to access the new neighborhood is through River View Estates, which is east of 29 Road, just south of the 29 Road Bridge. There will be access to the neighborhood from B 1/2 Road, however, which will be opened as soon as the final infrastructure, including electrical boxes, is complete.
There are multiple builders working in the subdivision, and multiple real estate agents listing the new homes.
“The first filing is almost built out,” said Harry Perry with Bray Real Estate, who is listing the homes built by Eric Perry and Epic Homes.
Other builders in the subdivision include Jim Jenson, who built many of the homes in Chipeta Estates, Corey Carter and Pace Enterprises. Most of the builders are building homes that are 2,000 square feet or slightly larger. Prices also vary, but start around $350,000. Building lots in the subdivision are slightly larger than many new home developments, averaging around a quarter-acre.
“Corey Carter built and sold five homes,” said Linda Kramer, the RE/MAX 4000 listing agent for Carter Homes. “They all sold during construction. We just purchased five more lots and already have two pre-solds.”
Michael Maves with Maves Construction is also introducing Chipeta Estates, 31-home Orchard Mesa development at little further east, at 2940 B 1/2 Road. Maves is a long-time custom home builder in the Grand Valley who often enters homes in the Parade of Homes. This is the first subdivision in which he’s planning on building all of the homes.
“We have two coming out of the ground,” said Kelly Maves with Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties, the listing agent for the subdivision. “One will be a model and the other one will be listed for sale this week.”
Maves is considering putting the model home, which is scheduled to be complete in October, in the upcoming 2017 Parade of Homes. Maves used an interior decorator to choose interior colors and finishes, and is planning four different floor plans, with a variety of designs and finish levels to make each home unique. Lots in the neighborhood are about a quarter-acre in size.
Those who don’t want a quarter-acre lot to maintain might find a new Orchard Mesa home in Mesa Estates, where Darren Caldwell with Conquest Construction has been building lock-and-leave homes with the unique Conquest look and finishes. There are currently two homes that are almost complete, with front yard landscaping going in within the next 30 days. One home is a two-bedroom, with 1,400 square feet for $265,000, while the other is a three-bedroom, 1,700-square foot home for $300,000.
The HOA maintains the front yard landscape, as well as all the common areas, so homeowners can lock the door, drive away and be gone for a month, knowing that the front yard won’t give away their absence. Homeowners have large, private patios in the back yard for a barbecue grill or a few lawn chairs. The neighborhood also has walking trails and lots of common areas and lawn.
Conquest owns another 20 lots in the subdivision and will continue to build either spec or pre-sold homes. There are also lots available for sale in the subdivision through Craig Huckaby with Bray Real Estate, if buyers want to bring their own builder. The development has a covenant-protected look, with tile roofs and stucco and stone exteriors.
Crosspoint Church, a six-year old congregation that has been meeting for the last few years at 198 Sunlight Drive, near B Road on Orchard Mesa, is renovating a building at a busy corner on Highway 50 at 2697 Highway 50. The church bought the building from Family Health West in Fruita, which had talked about opening a medical facility in Orchard Mesa. Prior to its ownership under Family Health West, the building had been a call center for Choice Hotels and a bank.
“We are going to start having services there in a month or two,” said Greg Farmer, pastor of the church. “We are excited to be out there on a major intersection.”
