Whitewater is a Small Community Southeast of Grand Junction on the Uncompahgree Plateau
To get to Whitewater from Grand Junction, take the long and winding Highway 50 East going towards Delta and Montrose. You will leave the city limits and suddenly see the desert landscape open up to views in every direction. Most people just pass by Whitewater and never drive the back roads to even know what exists out there. To truly see what Whitewater has to over, turn off the main road and drive through the east and west sides. Look for Old Kannah Creek Road and Blair Road and follow them for a few miles over the hills, around the curves, past the farms and ranches. You will be amazed at how beautiful the area is! Purdy Mesa and Reeder Mesa is another worth-while drive with million-dollar dream homes.
Whitewater Has its Own Post Office, But is Not a Separate Town
The area has more rural properties on large and small acreage estates than single family homes in neighborhoods. There is a mix of luxury homes, family homes, manufactured homes and modest housing. The area has been marked for growth and there is urban infrastructure like water and sewer in places. A developer who has a prime piece of Whitewater real estate at Highway 50 and Colorado Highway 141, is waiting for an opportunity to develop it. There are 26 acres with 20 acres tagged for mixed-use residential and 6 acres devoted to commercial development. Access to the Uncompahgree Plateau and the Old Spanish Trail make it a prime location for anyone who wants to live close to nearby recreation. The hiking and off-road opportunities around here are incredible.
Popular neighborhoods in Whitewater are: D Bar V Ranchettes, Pronghorn, Sagebrush, Sunnyside, Elk Run, Indian Creek and Desert Ranches.
Gateway is another very rural area nearby with an exclusive resort called Gateway Canyons that has a five star hotel and conference center.
