Luxury Community at the Base of Steamboat Ski Resort Offers Spacious Residences, High-quality Craftsmanship and Family Friendly Amenities
While the recession has taken a toll on much of the second home real estate market, there are a few communities that are continuing to experience strong sales despite the economic conditions. The Porches in Steamboat Springs is one such community, and is among the most desirable ski communities in the country, offering both whole ownership and a unique fractional ownership opportunity in its Private Residence Club, that ensures six weeks of vacation each year with inclusion of five-star amenities. Fractional ownership is a draw for many buyers who may not be interested in traditional second home ownership as it allows buyers to purchase a deeded fraction of a multi-million dollar home in resort town for a reasonable cost without the maintenance of whole ownership. Moreover, it offers a convenient hassle free lifestyle that it makes it possible to start vacationing immediately upon arrival, thanks to the outstanding staff who takes care of every need of its owners.
The Porches, is Steamboat’s foremost community for families looking to create lifelong memories. Located at the base of the Steamboat Ski Resort, The Porches redefines the term “luxury” in the area, offering whole and fractional ownership as well as nightly rentals in one of the country’s hottest mountain destinations. Steamboat Springs is a charming outdoor paradise, alive with a vibrant western culture and surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world. Residences feature four to five bedrooms and bathrooms, large gourmet kitchens, game room, cozy fireplaces, flat screen TVs and a bunkroom for the kids.
The Porches Private Residence Club presents an ideal opportunity to own a vacation home in Steamboat at a fraction of the cost of whole ownership, with usage commensurate to each owner’s needs. Whole ownership ranges in price from $2 to $3 million while Residence Club ownership begins at $340,000 for a 1/8 share equal to six weeks of usage per year with three weeks in the summer and three weeks in the winter.
“Discerning buyers who want a convenient, hassle free lifestyle can buy a fraction of one of our residences and gain access to unprecedented levels of luxury and quality craftsmanship without forgoing the comforts of home and a feeling of true community,” said Bruce Shugart, co-developer of The Porches. “We cater to the needs of large families by providing ample space in our residences so everyone can have their own room.”
In addition to the spacious and luxuriously outfitted residences, amenities and high quality service are paramount. One of the signature elements of The Porches is a 6,000 square foot onsite amenities building called The Barn where residents can relax in the lounge area next to a large stone fireplace and enjoy a complimentary latte. An exercise facility provides Nautilus cardio and weight training equipment and adjoining steam room. Just outside residents can swim in the heated pool. The pool area also includes a Jacuzzi, a gas grill for cookouts, a gas fire pit, and an adjacent deck that's great for lounging and entertaining.
