Kearsarge Brook II comes with a trusted partner in the ski business: The Fairbank Group.
As experienced developers—The Fairbank Group developed a similar project at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in the Berkshires of Massachusetts—they know how to create a vibrant second home community that will provide the lifestyle, features and amenities active families are looking for. The Jiminy Peak development brought a vibrant second home community to the base of a popular and well-run ski resort. Values and occupancy at Jiminy Peak’s condominium units have remained strong since their inception.
Brian Fairbank and Tyler Fairbank with partner, Joseph O’Donnell, purchased Cranmore Mountain Resort in 2010, realizing they had just acquired a diamond in the rough—and nearly nine decades of American ski history. The mountain was well managed but lacked the resources to be a progressive, year-round, destination ski resort. The trio immediately went to work pouring $10 million into upgrading mountain infrastructure. They added four new lifts, expanded snowmaking, building improvements, enhanced family ski learning programs and a full summer park attraction.
They then focused on creating an even brighter future with a new base area development. Their plan: Double the size of the area’s day-visit facilities and introduce 106 exclusive condominium residences offering doorstep access to the slopes and all the year-round recreation at Cranmore. The first phase included the highly successful Kearsarge Brook I Condominiums–two buildings with a total of 37 residences.
Architect for the project is John Ashworth of Bull-Stockwell, Allen of San Francisco, California. The firm has worked extensively with ski resorts including Aspen, Vail, Crested Butte, Grand Targhee Mountain Resort, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Jay Peak Resort, Okemo Mountain Resort and many others.
