History of Private Residence Clubs
Storied Places is an Intrawest Corporation company. Intrawest Corporation is one of the world’s leading resort operations and destination resort real estate development company. With the launch of Storied Places, Intrawest was able to create exquisite getaway luxury homes and private residences in the world’s most exquisite and exciting locales. The Storied Places Private Residence Club provide excellent personal services with a great fractional ownership model.

Currently, Storied Places is operating five luxury communities in North America with two planned Storied Places communities coming this year.

Storied Places Fractional Ownership
Storied Places was launched in response to the changing times in real estate developments and marketing. With so many real estate development projects going on in North America, it was hard for the affluent community to find a truly unique and private residence during the flood of new real estate listings. With Storied Places, the concept of luxury residences at fractional costs through fractional or shared ownership was born.

The entire concept of Storied Places fractional ownership centered around real estate investment and resort home usage at Storied Places exclusive communities. With vacation or resort homes at such developments like Storied Places, usage per year is very low, and therefore, people would literally be throwing away their money during the time that they don’t spend at their vacation homes. Most resort home owners, like at Storied Places if it weren’t a fractional ownership real estate development, would only use their property four weeks per year on average.

With Storied Places, the concept is very simple. Fractional ownership of vacation homes and residences presents a unique opportunity for families to own private residences in great locations for the fraction of the price. Storied Places fractional ownership is often referred to as Storied Places shared ownership of resort property as well.

Benefits of Storied Places Fractional Ownership of Resort Property
With a large amount of property capital stuck in their purchased luxury resort property, the Storied Places concept was new and refreshing for many. As people are always looking to maximize their dollars when purchasing luxury residences, they loved the Storied Places idea of buying into a real estate fraction.

In this model, fractional ownership of Storied Places luxury and private homes would allow people to enjoy their four to six weeks away at their private residence at exclusive Storied Places communities and also allow them to only purchase them for that period of time. Other Storied Places owners would own their share of the private residence during other weeks of the year.

‘Chaptered Ownership’ or Shared Ownership Defined
With the fractional ownership model of owning resort real estate, Storied Places termed this investment opportunity as ‘chaptered ownership.’ Basically, ownership of the exclusive homes are in the form of ‘Chapters’ or ‘Fractions.’ Each Storied Places Owner would receive a deeded title offering a specific number of weeks per year (dependent on the Storied Places location) of guaranteed usage. In addition, the fractional ownership opportunity at Storied Places, or chaptered ownership, would allow unlimited additional access whenever there is space available at the Storied Places exclusive community.

With Chaptered Ownership at Storied Places, owners would actually own the residence for a specified amount of time. The deeded piece of real estate can be listed on MLS and can be resold by the Storied Places owner. This is where Storied Places chaptered ownership differs from traditional fractional ownership or shared ownership and even timeshare communities.

Trading Stories – the next step
In addition to owning their exclusive residence at Storied Places communities, Owners also have the option of ‘Trading Stories.’ This program was devised by Storied Places to allow residence owners to trade their time at their Storied Places with another owner at another location. This will allow owners to experience different locations and different exquisite communities throughout North America. The Trading Stories program is only offered for Storied Places owners and their guests and also includes direct exchanges with real estate trading partners in North San Diego, Jackson Hole and Scottsdale, Arizona.

With so many opportunities to travel and live in luxury, why not try Storied Places today. Fractional ownership or chaptered ownership opportunities at Storied Places are still available at every location, but chapters are selling out quickly. With locations in the most exotic warm and cold destinations, there is something for everyone at Storied Places exclusive communities. From the white sand beaches at Sandestin, Florida to the world-class skiing resort at Whistler, British Columbia, Storied Places offers the best possible resort experiences and lifestyles.

The Storied Places launch at At Nature’s Door in Whistler, British Columbia
Using this fractional ownership model, the first Storied Places was launched back in 2002. Storied Places At Nature’s Door in Whistler featured exquisite finishing and details. With private residences in the form of log cabins, Storied Places At Nature’s Door provided people with the option to buy a fraction of a home for the fraction of the price. As well, with fractional ownership at Storied Places At Nature’s Door in Whistler, there would be no worries about day-to-day maintenance that is often associated with secondary resort homes.
