Located on the sunny western edge of the Vail Valley, Singletree has emerged as a popular community for many long-time Vail residents and second-home owners who have made the move down valley to take advantage of warmer weather, beautiful views and glorious sunsets. Offering a diverse selection of homesites ranging from high-end to single-family duplexes to well-sized condominiums, Singletree is a close-knit neighborhood loved by all who reside there.
Winding its way through Singletree, the Sonnenalp Golf Club’s 18-hole, par 71 championship course was designed by Jay Morrish and Bob Cupp of Golf Force, a company headed by Jack Nicklaus. At an altitude of approximately 7,200 feet, Singletree receives less snow and enjoys warmer temperatures than its nearby resort communities, allowing golf to commence as early as March. The golf course and clubhouse serve as the centerpiece of Singletree, boasting additional amenities such as swimming and tennis.
A great location for families young and old, additional amenities in Singletree include a bike path, access to backcountry hiking trails and a community park playground and pavilion. Trailheads connect Singletree to Forest Service land and to Avon’s Wildridge neighborhood. It is also a short drive from the slopes of Vail, Beaver Creek, Arrowhead and Bachelor Gulch.
The recently renovated Balata restaurant at Singletree is located in the golf course clubhouse. Balata offers a unique and creative twist on American cuisine and is open for lunch and dinner. Numerous popular dining options can be found in Edwards and nearby Vail, Beaver Creek and Avon.
The Eagle River meanders by at the doorstep to Singletree, providing access for excellent fly fishing, whitewater rafting and kayaking. A short drive or bicycle ride over the Eagle River puts you in the growing community and commercial center of Edwards, where restaurants and shopping abound.
Singletree is continually being upgraded under the direction of the Homeowners Association, Sonnenalp Golf Club and the Metropolitan District. Currently, construction is under way on additional pocket parks, and improved trail access to Forest Service land is also being developed for hikers, bikers and snowshoers.
