Wilder On The Taylor Luxe Development Preserves History Of Colorado Ranching

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Dallas, Texas – Dallas-based national real estate developer Jackson-Shaw announced last week the unveiling of Wilder on the Taylor, an exclusive 2,000-acre shared heritage ranch and recreation preserve near Crested Butte, Colorado. The development offers 15 premium homestead sites located on the famous Taylor River, providing private access to 2 miles of exceptional fly-fishing waters that surpass Gold Medal standards. Jackson-Shaw plans to develop a total of 26 home sites at Wilder on the Taylor.

“Wilder on the Taylor is part of a new movement in real estate development that balances a demand for high-end, recreational homes with the desire to preserve the legacy and the land of the American West,” said Ron Welborn, vice president of Jackson-Shaw. “After more than two years of careful planning and meticulous attention to design, we are pleased to offer this special property as the gateway to the classic Colorado lifestyle.”

The development is surrounded by more than 2 million acres of National Forest land and is situated around a 1900s working cattle ranch. Landowners will also have access to three miles of meandering meadow fishing streams and six ponds scattered throughout Wilder on the Taylor.

Preservation Efforts

The goal of the Wilder on the Taylor development is to have the least impact possible on the legacy of the land. The property strives to:

-Meet high standards of green building practices
-Maintain and enhance the water quality
-Educate owners and guests about land preservation

The ranching heritage of Wilder on the Taylor is reflected in the restoration of the original 1900s cabins and the preservation of the historic ranching operations.

History of the Ranch Property

Wilder on the Taylor is situated around a working cattle ranch originally founded in 1910. The ranch was first owned by Elsinore Cattle Company and then became the Wapiti Ranch. Wilder landowners will have full access to the ranch and can participate in cattle working, horseback riding and all other activities that Colorado has to offer.
