Homes being built in Uintah Bluffs

       With homes finally being built this year in the Uintah Bluffs subdivision, developer Matt Craddock commented that “they look even better than I imagined.”

One of the first homes built in the Uintah Bluffs subdivision sits in the background off Uintah Bluffs Place, a new public street off Manitou Boulevard that was created for the development to provide access to the eventual 31 homes.

       “There was a lot of sweat, a lot of tears and lot more money than we ever expected to spend,” he added. “But it's worth it.”
       The 31-lot, single-family-home project is on an otherwise undeveloped hilltop plateau, accessible by a new public street off Manitou Boulevard that was part of the project.
       The plateau rises above Uintah Street to the north, Bristol Elementary to the east; and Monument Street to the south.
       The lots are being sold for $105,000 to $145,000. Craddock has a contract with Adamo Homes of Castle Rock to design and build homes for the buyers. Four types of ranch-style homes are available, from two to four bedrooms.
       Craddock acquired the 13-acre property in 2005, originally considering apartment units, then townhomes before settling on single-family about two years ago. Issues along the way included the steep terrain and drainage control.
       The prep work included construction of a stormwater system draining to a detention pond in the lower, southeast corner of the site.
       The building area is confined to the northerly part of the property - along Uintah Bluffs Place - with the remainder left as open space.
       The project plans include a right of way for a public trail between Bristol Park (east of Uintah Bluffs) and Mesa Open Space (west).
