A 23-unit townhome project is being proposed in the Eagleridge subdivision near the base of the Steamboat Ski Area.
K&K Builders of Steamboat Springs has submitted documents to the city to begin the planning process for Stonewood at Eagleridge, which would comprise 10 buildings split among duplexes and triplexes.
K&K Builders has gained a reputation for delivering well-built townhomes with above-average finishes for opening prices below $300,000. Its previous projects include Willowbrook townhomes and The Willows on Chinook Lane.
The site for Stonewood at Eagleridge is situated between Chadwick Estates, which are under construction, and the undeveloped Tennis Meadows site. The Stonewood building sites would be cut into a southwest- and west-facing hillside.
Developer Kim Kreissig said this would be the biggest project K&K has undertaken; The Willows had 16 units. Stonewood also will represent a new price range for K&K.
"It's a higher end market we're going into simply because of the location and the price of the land," Kreissig said.
The units would average 2,843 square feet, according to planning documents submitted to the city Planning Department by architect T. Scott Nunnery of Eric Smith Associates. They will offer three to four bedrooms.
Nunnery told the city that although theirs is a separate development, they plan to use similar exterior building materials and elements to those employed in Eagleridge Lodge and Townhomes. The intent is to achieve visual harmony in the subdivision, Nunnery wrote.
Nunnery said because of the steepness of the building lots, he felt compelled to place the units' two-car garages at the front faÃ§ade of the duplexes, something that is discouraged in the community development code. He said extra care has been taken to make the garages visually pleasing.
