Turnberry Ranch sits in the upper reaches of the Missouri Heights area that is home to rural, mostly-south facing properties perched above the Roaring Fork Valley with big views of the snow-capped Elk Range. The Upper Cattle Creek Valley where the ranch is located is home to some of the last large private landscapes in the greater Roaring Fork Valley.
The Roaring Fork Valley is known as the home to Aspen, the world-class resort and cultural center, as well as historic, smaller towns like Basalt, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs, each with its own unique character and shops and restaurants, so the new ranch owner will have many fantastic choices as far as where to have their off-property fun, just 15 to 45 minutes away. The nearest towns are in the midvalley, with Basalt, less than 15 minutes away, hosting a Whole Foods, a Westin Hotel, and several restaurants, and Carbondale, with its quaint downtown, art fairs, and City Market grocery store. These two towns, along with nearby Glenwood Springs, are often on “Best Towns in the West” lists for their recreation, culture, and all-around healthy, active lifestyles. It is 45 minutes to Vail and Aspen from the ranch, and 160 miles to Denver.
The property is conveniently located between two commercial airports, with Aspen Pitkin County Airport approximately 40 miles southeast, and the Eagle County Regional Airport in Eagle (servicing Vail and Beaver Creek) 40 miles away. Commercial service is also available 2.5 hours away at DIA and private jet service is 30 miles down the road at the Garfield County Airport in Rifle, Colorado, and also in Aspen.
Summertime temperatures are in the 70s and 80s. Fall temps range in the 60s and 70s during the day, with evening temperatures dropping into the 40s and 50s. Wintertime temperatures range from highs in the 30s to 40s during the day and dropping into the teens and 20s at night. Average annual precipitation is approximately 16.5 inches. Most of the Cattle Creek area is south-facing, so snowfall melts early in the spring, and the area is known for its milder, manageable winters.
