— Colorado Group Realty’s 10th annual Parade of Homes event, a fundraiser benefitting Steamboat Adaptive Recreational Sports, is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Parade-goers can tour six high-end homes, as well as the new site for the STARS Ranch, and each attendee can vote on their pick for the realty group’s Routt County Home of the Year.

Tickets are $25 per person for a self-guided tour, or $35 to ride on the Storm Mountain Express shuttle, and can be purchased online or at the Colorado Group Realty downtown office, 509 Lincoln Ave.

“Each of the homes are spectacular in their own way,” said Marci Valicenti, a broker and owner with Colorado Group Realty and member of the committee that reviewed the parade homes. “Some of them are on acreage and some are on city parcels.”

One of the more rural homes is the 7,000-square-foot Big Valley Ranch designed by architect Bill Rangitsch and located off Colorado Highway 131.

Other parade homes include a 5,300-square-foot Burgess Creek home with Flat Tops views, a 5,900-square-foot European-style Sanctuary residence backing up to lush forest, a recently finished 3,800-square-foot Graystone on the Green farmhouse-inspired home and a fully gutted and remodeled Tree Haus home.

Valicenti said many of the home builders, architects and contractors will be on-site to discuss their work with visitors.

The net proceeds from the tour will go to STARS, which is currently fundraising for the construction of the new STARS Ranch on U.S. Highway 40 on Steamboat’s southern border. Attendees will be able to see the future home of the ranch facility on the tour.

“Colorado Group Realty is thrilled to run this great event to help STARS provide more amazing recreational programs for those with special needs as well as veterans,” said Steve Goldman, Colorado Group Realty CEO and one of the parade home owners.

Valicenti said homeowners have been eager to include their homes on the tour, and most of the properties are not for sale.

The home that earns the most votes and is named Routt County Home of the Year will be given a $500 gift certificate donated by E3 Chophouse.
