About the Community

You’ll find this unique new construction home nestled on the east side of the city within the Saddle Ridge subdivision, one of Cheyenne’s fastest growing neighborhoods. Saddle Ridge is the ideal place for any family to call home! It features a variety of home sizes and styles constructed by the area’s leading builders, along with convenient access to historic downtown, major interstates, schools, shopping centers, restaurants and more. A wide variety of amenities are located within an easy 10-minute drive.

For the outdoor enthusiast, Saddle Ridge offers concrete walking paths winding throughout the neighborhood and connecting to the Cheyenne Greenway, a citywide network that stretches more than 40 miles. Saddle Ridge Elementary and a city park are centrally located within the community, with plans for a second elementary school and park to be constructed.

About the Home

Unique touches and custom craftsmanship are on display throughout this sophisticated, quality-built home. It’s part of Gateway’s cottage collection, an exclusive array of plans carefully curated to provide functional living within a smaller footprint. The Sawyer floor plan showcases nearly 1,600 square feet of chic living space on the main including two bedrooms and two baths, plus two additional bedrooms, a third bath and an enormous family room with wet bar in the fully finished basement. Total finished square footage exceeds 2,800 square feet.

When you enter the front door, the distinctive cut-in tile and custom drop zone in the entryway will let you know this home certainly isn’t ordinary! Modern chandeliers elegantly accentuate the main level but the true “wow factor” in this home is the gourmet kitchen. Feast your eyes on the custom quartz countertops and backsplash, champagne bronze fixtures and walk-in butler’s pantry, all features which exude sophistication and style. Unique light fixtures and custom undercabinet/overcabinet lighting ensure you have the right lighting for any mood at your fingertips. Black stainless Samsung® smart appliances and a custom vent hood are as beautiful as they are functional. Stained woodwork throughout the home creates a pleasing visual contrast and finishing touch.

The bathrooms don’t disappoint with custom tile, floating vanities and backlit mirrors with defogging. Retreat to the relaxation zone at the end of the day after taking a glass of wine from the hidden wine closet. You’ll find the lower level just as well-appointed as the main level, featuring a gorgeous custom wet bar with beverage fridge, garbage disposal and dishwasher, in addition to a spacious area for entertaining.
