AngelView At Twin Lakes — Twin Lakes, Colorado

Nestled by the glacial waters of the Twin Lakes, AngelView, which will be the first-ever gated luxury community in the town of Twin Lakes, Colorado, could be a signal that the high demand for ski-resort properties has flowed downstream to Lake County.

Plans include 18 home sites ranging from three to four acres out of a 75-acre property at the base of Mt. Elbert, the highest mountain in Colorado.

Each lot has a 20% area of influence where the buyer can build—large enough for a sizable home while ensuring that the remaining 56 acres will stay undeveloped to protect privacy and open space, as well as maintain the scenic beauty of the mountainside that includes lakes, waterfalls and lush forests.
