Construction begins on Eagles Point

Robert McCurdy cut a purple ribbon over the disturbed soil where the foundation for his new house will go. Then he poured champagne into his wife’s glass and toasted her.

The McCurdy house was the first to go up in the new Eagles Point subdivision in Battlement Mesa.

Colorado Heritage Realty created the 56-lot subdivision, where custom and area builders can plant homes more than 1,600 square feet on quarter-acre lots. Mary Lee Mohrlang, a real-estate agent with Colorado Heritage, said some of the lots have been sold already, but there is not an estimate for when building will be finished.

Robert and Sara lived in Salt Lake City and then Denver. When it came time to retire, they looked at mountain spots between Denver and Salt Lake City.

“This is just beautiful,” Sara said. “We moved out here in March, and we’re just so glad we did it.”

The McCurdys hired Tapestry Builders to construct their ranch-style house with a walk-out basement near the Battlement Mesa golf course. Jerre Witt, co-owner of Tapestry, said the style is pretty popular in Battlement Mesa.

Most Eagles Point lots overlook the golf course. It features a privacy wall along Spencer Parkway, walking trails and landscaped common areas with gazebos.
