Located in the Shores of Shadow Mountain by the south end of the lake with a rich natural shoreline and serene views from morning to evening.
After you build, your boat dock is a couple hundred feet away.
You'll love watching the Never Summer Mountains and high peaks deep in Rocky Mountain National Park
change with the seasons and weather. Water flowing into the lake from the nearby fishing canal creates
open water year-round and a world class play area for kayaking and fishing.
Roads are paved; utilities are below the ground. The association fee of $434.50 per year takes care of open space and assures a quality environment. There is an additional $500 paid annually by the lakefront property owners like yourselves, which takes care of the association boat slips. Those will be in the water a couple of hundred feet to the right of your land as you look out over the water. The community water tap fee, valued at $5,000, has been paid and the use fee which is paid quarterly is $59 per month; this water system is monitored regularly to assure safe drinking water, clear and cold. The tap for public sewer, which you pay when you get your building permit, is currently $9,600 and the use fee for that will be $31 per month. Both are billed quarterly to your permanent home address. There is a transfer fee of one half of 1% which is customarily paid by the purchaser at closing; there is also a $100 fee to the management company for preparing the statement for closing. Property taxes are $6,726 for the year; the taxes will not be much more when you build because vacant land is taxed at a higher rate than residential properties. The county records show this land as over a third of an acre, larger than many lakefront properties in the Grand Lake area.
I almost did not include the last attachment - the satellite photo of the entire Shores because the color is not wonderful and property lines are off on all of the county maps; you can see this simply by looking at where the roads are. It does help, though, to see the property in relation to the Forest Service land at the top of the map, the Fishing Canal at the bottom, and Shadow Mountain Lake to the right. There is a trail along the lake shore which can be a shortcut to your boat slip. I have not ever seen anyone walking this trail.
The Amenities Map which is the next to last attachment, is amazing! From your home site, you can fish along the canal with open water year round, hike the Colorado River trails (the same river which carved the Grand Canyon begins here, just north of Grand Lake, and is within walking distance!) or walk around the far shore of Shadow Mountain Lake all the way into Grand Lake Village, if you are feeling energetic.
Many owners prefer to hop into their boat and travel through the channel into Grand Lake. Simply tie up at the public docks while you shop, dine and attend our live theater.
