In winter, the AMRC pastures are groomed with cross country ski trails.

When visions of your dream vacation home perched in the Rocky Mountains dance through your mind, you see huge windows framing huge views. You see yourself relaxing on a sprawling deck, basking in the glory that is Colorado. You see skiing trips, trout fishing and spending holidays with family in the glow of a roaring fire. So you have the interest, as well as the money. But maybe you don’t have the time or energy to oversee every aspect of a project of this scale.

If that’s your dilemma, look no further than Alpine Mountain Ranch and Club. It borders the ski resort and sits just five minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs. And they have a solution to quell those feelings of trepidation.

An all new design build program to create the ultimate vacation home.

The new program, offers custom construction management services at pricing five to seven percent lower than market pricing.

“We alleviate the headaches,” says Jamie Curcio, AMRC’s construction manager. “What we offer is an on-site construction team that oversees the entire design and building process.”

The team’s work is exceptional, and the proof is in the pudding.

Two market homes priced above $4.45M at AMRC have been built, one of which just sold this fall. The second is currently on the market and they recently broke ground on a third.

“We’re well-versed in the design review guidelines,” says Curcio, who grew up in Steamboat and played a significant role in the construction and planning of some of the most prominent buildings and developments in the Steamboat Springs area. These include One Steamboat Place, the Jan Bishop Cancer Center, and the Deer Park Road corporate building.

“We know the local subcontractor force and the permitting processes. If you want a beautiful house on this property but you don’t want to deal with the stress of building it, we’re here to take that on.”

Living at AMRC means enjoying the beauty of a 1,216-acre land preservation community.

AMRC, a 1,216-acre land preservation community, is divided into 63, 5-acre parcels. Even better, 900 acres are specifically designated as wildlife preserve. It’s minutes from Steamboat Ski Resort, with amenities like slope-side services at the Alpine Mountain Summit Club, fishing along a private stretch of the Yampa River, equestrian facilities, a guest cabin, and more.

“It’s a special place,” says Suzanne Schlicht, AMRC’s director of sales. “It’s important for us to build a vibrant community here, so we wanted to make these Design Build services available to help.”

And homes at AMRC go up fast and closer to budget.

By having the local team in place, homes at AMRC have gone up more quickly and closer to budget than other similar projects in Steamboat.

That’s due to Curcio and his team. They are accessible and available to answer questions subcontractors may have. They monitor progress on your vacation home, make reminder calls if needed, and ensure that the build remains on schedule.

Plus, you’ll have a number of program tiers to choose from.

AMRC’s program includes a number of tiers, each depending upon the degree of involvement an owner desires in the design and building process.

“One may say, ‘I want a 5,000-square-foot house,’” Curcio says. “‘I want it to be four bedrooms and have a theater. You take it from there.’ Or you may have another who says, ‘I want to get into the interior design, but I want you to manage the subcontractors and everything else.’” 

Essentially, AMRC eliminates hurdles and allows homebuyers to dream big.

What you get, Curcio says, are customizable services at a discounted rate, which remove a lot of hurdles that can arise, allowing buyers to focus their attention elsewhere.

“We do this so our homeowners can continue their day-to-day activities,” Curcio says.  “You can be as involved as you want, but at the same time, you can live your life.”
