About

This is an incredibly prime redevelopment opportunity for someone to build on one of the best homesites in East Vail.  Backing up to national forest and with gorgeous views, including of Bald Mountain, this primary-secondary duplex site currently has a 3,000 square foot home with a separate 2-car garage and is being sold as a “tear down” given the condition and size.  

This land is zoned for a primary-secondary duplex or a single family home.  You would need an architect to design and determine the exact square footage that can be built but between 9,000 and 10,000 square feet is a reasonable estimate based upon similar sized lots with this zoning.  Obviously something much smaller may be desirable depending upon the buyer and if it is a single family or a duplex.
