Meadowgreen–Paved roads, public utilities, and views of the lake. For all these comforts, expect to pay more. Lot prices vary–a lot!–but one lot may have the special assessment for all those services (roads and utilities) paid in full while the less expensive one next door wants the buyer to assume the assessment.
Eagle’s Watch–There are many houses in this neighborhood with trees. It was one of the original subdivisions with some homes dating to the 1980’s. You’ll enjoy privacy in your back yard from the thick aspen groves and scrub oak. Building sites in Eagle’s Watch are bigger than some of the other developments. This view is from the top of Broken Talon Trail. You can see the reservoir in the distance. The lower part of Eagles Watch as viewed from Broken Talon Trail. Stagecoach Town Homes –Stagecoach Town Homes were built in the 1970’s when the Stagecoach Ski Area was being developed. Stagecoach Town Homes were built in 1974 and most have 3 and 4 bedrooms and 1,400-1,750 square feet. They have great views of the lake and many of the units have been updated. Stagecoach Town Homes border the now-defunct Stagecoach Ski Area.
Lakeview Meadows–Not officially part of Stagecoach, this development has 6 five acre lots and allows horses. It is very close to the main road to Steamboat across from Meadowgreen.
South Shore–South Shore is off the grid, which means there is no electricity, no public water, and no sewer. Once you have the solar panels up or the wind power installed, there is also no electric bill. The views from South Shore are some of the best in Stagecoach. Most are situated high on the hill with sweeping panoramas of the lake. The next Marina will be built at South Shore where the current boat ramp is located.
Morningside–One of the more densely packed neighborhoods in Stagecoach. There are many lots in Morningside but it has the smallest acreage. Make sure you check how many vault permits are available before you buy, or you could be waiting for the utilities to go through before you can build.
Horseback–This subdivision has very pretty building sites with trees and meadow views. It is a bit farther from the main road but very private.
Black Horse I and II Sky Hitch I, II, III, IV–These developments are at the end of Stagecoach. They are undeveloped and very primitive, with roughed-in streets and no good winter access. People who buy land here are doing it for investment purposes. The return has been very good over the past five years, with prices almost quadrupling in that time.
Overland–Overland has dirt roads, many of which are not up to grade. Overland is not plowed in the winter.
South Station–The same as Sky Hitch. These lots are a great investment if you want to purchase raw land, but it isn’t developed enough to live there. Yet.
