Ever Heard of Giberson Preserve Frisco Real Estate?
Most Summit County homebuyers hail from outside of the Frisco real estate market. That is why they have never heard of that Giberson Preserve. Once a homestead, today the Giberson Ranch property finds itself a secret gem for mountain homes in the picturesque Colorado Rockies.
Part of the early 1900s ranch is now dedicated conservation easement. It will never be developed or accessible by paved roads. Giberson Preserve conservation easement covers 179 acres of forest land, wetlands, and meadows. At 9500 foot elevations in the Rocky Mountains, this is fallow elk habitat. Off the beaten path, the ranch backs to national forest south of Highway 6.
From this area of Frisco, Colorado, there are breathtaking views in every direction. Colorado Fourteeners along the Ten Mile Range and the Continental Divide are part of the marvelous everyday life. Some properties have views of Lake Dillon as well.
Frisco Real Estate on Old Giberson Ranch
A portion of the old Giberson Ranch, however, is developed into a dozen lots. One by one a collection of large custom mountain homes are being constructed. A handful of vacant lots remain. Most are along Beeler Place and Giberson Road.
The fantastic Giberson Ranch homes feature anywhere from 4 to 8 bedrooms and 5000-7200 square feet. The home at 270 Giberson Road being built today sleeps more than two dozen people comfortably. These custom-built homes blend with the rustic surroundings. They also take advantage of the amazing build sites to allow flourishing mountain views from every window and outdoor living area.
The original Giberson Homestead turned into the Lazy V Double Quarter Circle, a productive farm and ranch after the mining industry slowed down in Colorado. Tilling the soil with their trusty horses, the parents grew vegetables and hay. But the major source of income came from livestock, chickens, and dairy products.
Fast forward to the end of 1998 when Howard Giberson and his wife took legal steps to preserve the ranch. While turning it into a conservation easement, they allowed for the small neighborhood of single-family homes. It is cared for by the Continental Divide Land Trust.
