Weldon Creek Features
Weldon Creek is truly a “must see” area. Eighty percent of the 1300 acres is breathtaking protected open space and most of the community borders the National Forest or other government lands. A spring-fed pond and a mountain stream run through the community. Winding along the stream is an 8-foot wide asphalt walking/biking trail, 3/4 of a mile long for the exclusive use of the residents. Motorized vehicles and hunting are not permitted on the trail, which gives a sense of tranquility. Access through the community is provided by 9 miles of asphalt roads running from US Highway 50 to County Road 140. The property features state of the art electronic gates providing security and most of the business of the community is taken care of by a property manager.
Living alongside Weldon Creek residents are many elk and deer. It is a place of sanctuary for wildlife and they are abundant. Native wildflowers, Aspen, Fir, Spruce, Pinon and Ponderosa Pine trees grow freely. The landscape and natural views are indescribable. Surrounded by mountains, every home site is planned for peak views.
Building Your Dream Home in Weldon Creek
Living in Chaffee County is a unique experience you won’t want to miss. Many that visit wish they had come here earlier. Weldon Creek home sites are laid out with building envelopes from 2 to 10 acres where your dream house can be constructed. Each building envelop was thoughtfully laid out for both maximum privacy and excellent mountain views. Local architects and contractors can be used, or you can bring your own. More than one building is permitted within the envelope for a barn or a guest house. The sky is the limit. And within Weldon Creek, over 1000 acres are a conservation easement that will never be built on. The lots cannot be subdivided and the density can never be increased.
