Aldasoro Ranch, just minutes from Telluride but miles away in character, is a 1,500 acre subdivision offering 160 luxury mountain homes and home sites averaging 3-4 acres. Originally owned by the Basque Aldasoro family and historically used as a sheep ranch, the area offers spectacular 270 degree views of Mount Wilson and the surrounding peaks, and a sunny southern exposure.

Valley Floor and West
Brown Homestead/ Eider Creek/ Sunset Ridge/ Hillside
These developments located between Telluride and Society Turn (where the spur ends and one can either head west towards Placerville or south towards Mountain Village), offer housing more affordable than that available within the Town of Telluride proper. Brown Homestead and Eider Creek offer modest condominiums while Sunset Ridge, a newer development, and Hillside offer single-family home sites with some vacant parcels available. Some homes in Hillside are “deed restricted” in that they are available for purchase only to local residents, providing affordable housing for those living and working in the Telluride region.
Lawson Hill/Two Rivers
Lawson Hill, located at Society Turn, and Two Rivers, located down valley between Society Turn and Illium Road offer deed restricted housing available for purchase only to local residents.
Sawpit/ Placerville/ Ilium Valley
The communities of Sawpit, Placerville, and those in Illium Valley (off Illium Road), are located west of Telluride on Highway 145. All within 15-20 minutes of the ski area and golf course, many have river frontage and are located in a “banana belt” which often enjoys more moderate weather than Telluride and Mountain Village. Homes in these areas are generally more affordable than those closer to Telluride.
South of Telluride
Trout Lake/ San Bernardo
Trout Lake, just 15 minutes south of Telluride, is a collection of 100 homes surrounding beautiful Trout Lake wherein the land is commonly owned by the property owners, and each parcel has a designated building site. San Bernardo, just a few minutes down the road from Trout Lake, is a community mostly consisting of deed restricted homes available for purchase by local residents. Some free-market properties also exist.
